no but it’s that Walt didn’t redeem himself; he admitted he is a selfish ass, he let jesse go and jesse got to have autonomy from him, had the choice to kill Todd and not Walter, so Walt has transformed, yes, but not in a redemptive way. ultimately it says so much that the thing he drew consolation from in his final moments was the meth lab.
it is really refreshing to me as someone with OCD to see a character on tv with OCD who isn’t evil or deranged from OCD like many one-off crime show killers are, but is evil entirely divorced from OCD, like Lydia on Breaking Bad. Yes, many of her actions are shaped by her compulsions and rigid need for order, such as the incessant questioning for exact meaning, etc, but they aren’t fundamentally driven by her OCD. And it’s not played for laughs and sickeningly insincere pathos either, like certain shows coughcough monk coughcough. Yes, Lydia is evil, but it’s not because of her OCD. And that’s great.
