Breaking Bad Final Chapter
THE WAGES OF SIN
It's the final season of Vince Gilligan's Breaking Bad. As Walter White faces the end of his journey, what will the final judgement be? You'd better believe we'll be watching...and writing. We're looking at each episode from various faith perspectives, highlighting questions and themes of evil, redemption, justice, and wholeness.

Good intentions. Bad results. Ego. Sin. Destruction. Whew. A lot to break down here.
