Which feels like a big moment, but it's not really enough. Walt's such a jerk that he can't even muster an apology for years of lying and making his family the target of a murderous fried chicken restaurateur. For some reason, though, this is good enough for Skyler, who then lets Walt have a tender moment with their baby. You know, the one he once abducted. Even Ted Danson and Steve Guttenberg couldn't make this not creepy.
Then comes the show's big moment: Walt has to save Jesse, which involves fighting Nazis. Even if you hate Walt, between him and Nazis ... it's kind of obvious that only AMC fans that are actual Nazis are going vote against Walt. So once again, Walt is unequivocally triumphant.
One reviewer at Salon points out that while the creators talked about the show as the "transformation from Mr. Chips to Scarface," Tony Montana actually got his comeuppance. Walt, on the other hand, gets to go out completely on his own terms. He's practically smiling as he dies before the police can arrest him.
