Breaking Bad Series Finale: Live Free or Die

Like Chekhov's gun, we knew that seeing Walt's military grade weaponry in the beginning of season 5 meant that it would eventually go off.

And Sweet Jesus, does it off.

We were all a little skeptical of Walt's plan — which up until tonight's finale was merely an angry yet vague declaration of intent — that he'd obliterate Jack and his crew. After all, we've seen these men shoot children, murder DEA agents and facilitate modern-day slavery. They come from sturdy, terrifying Aryan stock. But as demonstrated by Todd's lack of prowess when it comes to chemistry, these guys just can't match Walt intellectually.
