In the run-up to the conclusion of Breaking Bad, all we know is this: The final episode will be called “Felina.” We can only speculate as to the meaning of this mysterious title.
Is it a (misspelled) reference to the character from Marty Robbins' songs, who compels their doomed fugitive hero to flee to New Mexico?
Or to the WWE and TNA professional wrestler?
Or to the DC Comics superheroine, who was once a martial arts instructor in Mew Orleans?
Or to the Filipino TV show about “a woman who was born with cat looks”?
Or to the Pokémon character, Professor Felina Ivy?
Or maybe “Felina” is simply an anagram of finale? Only time will tell.
