If you live by the sword, you die by the sword.
Well, I just cried. But, I'm so glad Walt did not die from his cancer. I have so many opinions about every character -- some that seem to go against what most people think. Bryan Cranston was just brilliant. I never liked Skyler, even though she had every right to be pissed. She had every right to have no trust. She had every right to want to protect her children. But I loathed her from the get go. And Jesse. Although Walt manipulated him and had unforgivable moments in regards to Jesse, I DO think Walt loved him in his own weird way. He saved him so many times, and he condemned him to misery so many times...I just wanted Jesse to hug Walt. I just did.
And I had to laugh when Badger and Skinny Pete showed up, lol!
In the end, he caressed that meth cooker so gently, and with such a wistful smile on his face. So sad. Walt was a bad guy, but I just wanted everything to be alright for him. Forget that he was making meth that was destroying hundreds of people and hundreds of families. He was so clean about his chemistry. When he finally says to Skyler that he did it for himself, he was admitting his real love, an affair that wasn't flesh. Like he said, "He was good at it." His everyday life was boring and I think he just felt mentally impotent--a small moment really showing that is when he is working at the car wash in the beginning as a second job and is wiping down the very nice car of his dips*it student. And the bigger life changer, knowing he sold out of Graymatter for 5000 bucks.
As Vince Gilligan said, he was with his precious when he died. I desperately wanted to hear someone tell Walt, "I love you." The closest he got was the meth lab where he felt most alive and if it could've talked, it would have said it.
