Breaking REALLY Bad and Treading Lightly ... Recaps/Commentary on The Final Episodes of Breaking Bad -- **CONTAINS SPOILERS-- DO NOT READ IF YOU HAVEN'T WATCHED 5X09

Too much girl talk on this blog lately? Yeah, I thought so.  I do love "Pretty Little Liars" and "Twisted" a lot, but shockingly enough, there is one show that I'd have to call my favorite over both of them, and above anything else that's ever been on television.  Obviously I'm referring to "Breaking Bad," which contains some of the most phenomenal writing I've ever encountered.  Even though there's such a cultural stigma that television shows have no educational value, I honestly believe that students in English/writing classes could learn a thing or two about writing from this show.  In short, BREAKING BAD IS AWESOME.  


Even though I put this in the title, in case someone decided not to listen to me, I'm going to reiterate: This article "**CONTAINS SPOILERS-- DO NOT READ IF YOU HAVEN'T WATCHED 5X09**."  I would HATE to spoil Breaking Bad for anybody.


Let's discuss what on earth is going on in the episodes of the final season that we've seen so far. That is by no means intended to imply that I know what's going on at all; I'm about as flabbergasted as (CLICK THE FOLLOWING BUTTON TO REVEAL SPOILER CONTENT)

PLL: Dr. Wren and Mr. Hyde -- Two Contradictory Theories: Wren is a Good Guy and Wren is a Bad Guy

**I would like to explain why from now on, I am using quotation marks around the word "theory."  I should have been doing this the whole time, but at least I'm starting now.  My style of writing "theories," is not necessarily writing something that I think/predict would actually WIND UP happening in the shows; I write ideas that COULD happen, that I believe to be creative, and would make sense with the plot lines. 

I would love to write for TV some day, and the way I write is sort of a baby-step towards writing spec scripts.**

Now, for the "theories" :

PLL -- Are The Pointless Characters REALLY as Pointless as we think? (Probably, but this is how I'd make them important)


PLL Theory-- Maybe these "pointless characters" aren't so pointless after all.

1) Did Duncan REALLY think Aria was Ali just b/c she was wearing a red coat? OR did he somehow get tipped off that the girls have the coat and use that as a way to talk to the girls?

 Remember the reason we met Duncan? It was because of that guy Jonah who was trying to help find out who "A" was/ who was sending the texts to "Vivian"  -- Jonah initially gave Spencer and Aria an address that led to that creepy area where that scary old man was.  This REALLY isn't Jonah's problem anymore, but he took the initiative to call Aria and tell her that he traced another burner phone to the area RIGHT WHERE THEY MET DUNCAN?

 Is that a coincidence? OR: (2 options I've thought of so far) : 1) Duncan wanted to talk to the girls/Aria and needed an excuse to meet them etc.  He could've paid off Jonah to make that phone call to Aria. OR 2) Jonah's call was genuine, and the reason the burner phone was traced to the area where they met Duncan is because he WAS the one sending the texts. --Also it is interesting that Jonah and Duncan BOTH supposedly didn't know that Vivian/Ali had died.
