UPDATE: If you haven’t watched last night’s Breaking Bad series finale, there’s ONE SPOILER here.
Like millions of other people, Jeb and I have been glued to Breaking Bad since it started six years ago. The tension leading up to the series finale was c-r-a-z-y, prompting me to boycott the Internets after 8pm last night for fear of getting smacked with a spoiler before we had a chance to sit down in front of the DVR. There were all sorts of theories posted last week about how the show would end, and I couldn’t bring myself to read those either. I didn’t want to know. I didn’t want any clues or tipoffs. So funny to feel that protective toward the storyline of a meth cooker psychopath.
Once we watched the episode, I couldn’t leave it at that. As a total Cowboys fan, Jeb will read story after story online after a big win (obviously, it doesn’t happen often enough for his satisfaction) to revel in the victory. I sort of felt something similar, wanting to read everything that anyone cared to publish about how it all went down in the end. Reading blog post after blog post was my way of not letting go, I guess.
If you’re going through the same withdrawls, here’s my own tribute to Breaking Bad. If the characters were expressed through home decor, here’s how they would shake out:
Lydia Rodarte-Quale (Laura Fraser)
Lydia is stiff, pretentious, and uptight, much like this uncomfortable-looking daybed from Design Within Reach. Those little clouds of dust that come out of the cushions when you sit down? Don’t worry, it’s just Stevia. Or ricin.
