Breaking Bad's finale is just days away, and while AMC was stingy when it came to offering us some actual footage from the final episode of this riveting drama series, they did offer up two stills from the episode, neither of which give all that much away. The above image reveals Walter White in his car. And since he's still bundled up in his winter coat, I'd say there's a good chance we're looking at Walt in the minutes or hours following his exit from the bar.
And then there's this one, which is a bit more mysterious:
Walt looks like he could be dressed for warmer weather, though he might actually be wearing the same jacket he had on when he was at that restaurant eating his birthday breakfast and picking up his gun and car, so I don't think the outfit tells us much. As for the setting, anyone recognize this? By the brown grass that appear to be outside, I'd say he's somewhere back west, but I can't place those windows. Assuming that grass is actually outside and the tree we see is some kind of houseplant or something, Walt appears to be inside somewhere.
That sconce looks nice, so maybe Gretchen and Elliot's place, or someplace related to them? Just a guess. Or maybe I'm just looking for evidence that Walt is actually planning some kind of Gray Matter confrontation, whether he gets one or not. By the look on his face, it seems like he might have arrived somewhere and didn't find whatever he expected to find.
All we can do is speculate between now and Sunday night when the finale airs. And then when it does air, we can go about watching and rewatching to analyze every minute of the series' conclusion and try to make sense of it all. After that, we have the Better Call Saul spinoff to look forward to at AMC, and the recently announced Battle Creek CBS drama to look forward to from Vince Gilligan.
But that's thinking a bit far ahead. Those trying to find a way to pass the time between now and Sunday can turn on AMC and enjoy the series marathon the network is showing. That'll be airing almost continuously until Sunday night at 9:00 p.m. when the fifth and final season comes to a close with the hour-and-fifteen-minute finale, which will be followed by the last episode of Talking Bad, which airs immediately after.
