I think the universe is trying to tell me something and I’m finally ready to listen. I’m just not the man I thought I was.
Well, then, I can talk to the Channel Three News. Yeah, I can tell them how you people, without a shred, without a modicum of evidence illegally detained an innocent pregnant woman in a dank storeroom.

I accept who I am. And who are you? I’m the bad guy.
When I got my diagnosis — cancer — I said to myself, you know… ‘Why me?’ And then… the other day when I got the good news… I said the same thing.
Is this just a genetic thing with you? Is it congenital? Did your mother drop you on your head when you were a baby?
"We didn’t feel an absolute need for Walt to expire at the end of the show. Our gut told us it was right. As the writers and I worked through all these different possibilities, it felt right, but I don’t think it was a necessity for us. There was a version we kicked around where Walt is the only one who survives, and he’s standing among the wreckage and his whole family is destroyed. That would be a very powerful ending but very much a kick-in-the-teeth kind of ending for the viewers. We talked about a version where Jesse kills Walt. We talked about a version where Walt more or less gets away with it. There’s no right or wrong way to do this job — it’s just a matter of: You get as many smart people around you as possible in the writers room, and I was very lucky to have that. And when our gut told us we had it, we wrote it, and I guess our gut told us that it would feel satisfying for Walt to at least begin to make amends for his life and for all the sadness and misery wrought upon his family and his friends. Walt is never going to redeem himself. He’s just too far down the road to damnation. But at least he takes a few steps along that path." (Vince Gilligan, on Breaking Bad finale, “Felina”)
“It’s in the eye of the viewer. Dying is not necessarily paying for one’s sins. I certainly hope it’s not, because the nicest people that have ever lived are going to die eventually. So it could be argued instead that he did get away with it because he never got the cuffs put on him. [There was] the one time with Hank [in ‘To’Hajiilee’]. But he’s expired before the cops show up. They’re rolling in with the sirens going and the lights flashing and he just doesn’t give a damn. He’s patting his Precious, in Lord of the Rings terms. He’s with the thing he seems to love the most in the world, which is his work and his meth lab and he just doesn’t care about being caught because he knows he’s on the way out. So it could be argued that he pays for his sins at the end or it could just as easily be argued that he gets away with it.” (Vince Gilligan, on Walt’s death in Breaking Bad finale, “Felina”)
