Breaking Bad's finale might have been a little too tidy for some viewers' tastes, but there was no other way for it to go out. For a show with as acute a narrative as Bad's — turning Mr. Chips into Scarface — that meant Walter White could leave no loose end. In his final days, he dotted every I, crossed every T left, including freeing Jesse from Uncle Jack & Co., and he finally stopped lying to himself about why he did what he did: "I did it for me." Plus, he bid adieu right next to his "Baby Blue."
