1. It’s not in The Dent Act, but the line about “you either die a hero or live long enough to become a villain” is prescient, if not for Walter White, then for Breaking Bad as a sustainable television model in this new “Golden Age”: Vince Gilligan has promised not to give us a shitty or ambiguous finale, which will be ending on its own terms. (Something W. W. would definitely appreciate.) With one episode left, can you give us your prediction for at least two of the major characters? Will Walter White survive? Todd? Jesse?
