Last week's "Half Measures" just might have been the finest hour in the shows three year run. This week's season finale, entitled "Full Measure," doubled up and blew it out of the water. Season two was a step up from season one, and now that season three has concluded, it's plain to see that it was a few steps up from season two.
As always, tense moments and plot twists permeate the show. Vince Gilligan created this well-oiled machine that is being driven by Bryan Cranston (Walt) and Aaron Paul (Jesse), two actors at the very top of their game. There are not enough good things to say about these two men, and Gilligan as well for writing and directing the episode. The scene at the beginning where Walt stands up to Gus and presents him with two options (one of which was to kill him right there and now) showed a character cool under pressure with no fear, as did the scene where he makes his last-ditch attempt to save his life. You've come a long way, Walter. Jesse may have only had a minor role in the episode, but fans will not forget the final scene of the season; the emotion on his face and the tears in his eyes before pulling the trigger was one hell of a way to send off one hell of a season and keep us all counting down the days until season four premieres. On that note, it was announced just before the finale that the show has indeed been renewed by AMC for a fourth season.
