Re: Who Kills Walt in the Series Finale?

I still think that John Noble's acting is outstanding on Fringe...and that's not diminished in any way by Brian Cranston's acting on BB(Which is also exceptional).

Walt's survival is the hook of the show, for why else do we watch, than to see him squeak his way out of every suspense filled close call, after all, this is a show about going from morality to immoralty, as the name suggests, while we watch Walt's morals degrade and his conscience tear apart at every lesser of two evil situation Vince Gilligan throws at him.

I don't think Walt's survival was the hook....it was his mortality that was the hook. Nobody would have watched the show if we knew Walt could not die or fail. If he survives the finale, then the show was a lie, and he was never really mortal.

Re: Who Kills Walt in the Series Finale?

You'd keep him alive for the sake of a movie? That's got nothing to do with the story! Story is king.

If the show is ending, it should end; the story should be over. The show began with Walt's mortality, and it should end with his mortality.

I agree that he must be humanized...and the only way he's going to become human again is by meeting his maker. Right now, he thinks he is the creator/master/lord of all...and he has to fail really hard to be redeemed...and nothing short of death will do, really.
...having to live, for Walt, simply keeps him in that state of existential numbness that is the basis for his transition...and if that's not answered for, then the story isn't over...he's still evil, and he's neither done being evil, nor done with the overall inner conflict that is the basis for the entire show.

...it is the difference between ending the show, and simply stopping making more episodes.

To end the show requires an end.

He can die of cancer too...it doesn't have to be bloodshed.

What do you think Walt could do to be redeemed? I mean, he made the most addictive meth ever, and killed a bunch of people, and poisoned a child as a power play...
...no matter his other circumstances, it is his list of sins that he must be redeemed for. Sentimentality isn't apt justification for redemption.

It's not a spoiler but a question asked before the finale.
