1. In general, satisfying television finales have several requirements. They wrap up the storylines and the characters’ arcs, and they give many of the (surviving) characters a final scene (shout-out to my favorite Babylon 5 fans, Badger and Skinny Pete!).

Some of these in last night’s finale were obvious, like the flashback to Hank inviting Walt on the ride-along. Some were mere hints, like the still-oscilatting gun in the trunk, which referenced Tuco’s bouncing car, or the final shot, which was reminiscent of Walter and the fly. There were many others as well. Pick one or two of favorites and explain why Breaking Bad chose to reference these scenes. Read More
