AMC salutes the final episode of Breaking Bad

Warning: Possible Spoiler Alert.

A legacy that started on Jan. 20, 2008 has officially come to an end with a thunderous applause from fans and television enthusiasts alike.

“Breaking Bad”, the critically acclaimed crime drama starring Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul as a tandem of meth kingpins, finished its 5 and final season on Sept. 29, 2013.

In the television series’ length, it has won 45 of its 113 nominated awards, including the 2013 Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series.

The final episode named “Felina” holds a special cryptographic meaning when referring to chemistry.

“Fe” being iron, “Li” being Lithium, and “Na” being sodium, stands for the three main components in Breaking Bad’s theme – Blood, Meth, and Tears.

Vince Gilligan, the creator of the series is known for holding hidden messages within the show, including the name of the final episode being an outline as to what is to come.

The last episode ends in a “punishing yet unforgiving way” said Gilligan.

If you have seen the finale, you could agree that the final ten minutes of the show were jaw-dropping.

Although the show is over, there are talks with AMC happening that could create a spin off titled “Better Call Saul” – a prequel based around the life of the criminal lawyer, Saul Goodman.

Officially, Walter White is no more, Jesse Pinkman is free and we are left to imagine what happens next with the likes of the Skyler, Marie, Saul and so on.

Thank you AMC, for making bad so good.
