FELINA

The title of the last episode of Breaking Bad is “Felina”. Lots of speculation about what it means, but to me it can only mean one thing. Felina is the name of the cantina dancer in the Marty Robbins song “El Paso” that the cowboy singing the song dies over, making one last attempt to see again. I say it’s Gretchen. In any case, listen to the song and I think you’ll get a beat by beat outline of the last episode, whoever Walt’s Felina turns out to be.

Back in El Paso my life would be worthless.
Everything’s gone in life; nothing is left.
It’s been so long since I’ve seen the young maiden
My love is stronger than my fear of death.

I saddled up and away I did go,
Riding alone in the dark.
Maybe tomorrow
A bullet may find me.
Tonight nothing’s worse than this
Pain in my heart.
