“Felina” is an anagram for “finale.” If you’re a Breaking Bad fan, it could also be interpreted as a nod to the chemical elements Fe (iron/blood), Li (lithium/meth), and Na (sodium/tears). It’s also the name of a character in the Marty Robbins song “El Paso,” which just so happens to have been featured in Breaking Bad’s final episode.
According to Vimeo uploader Bonnie Rose, this is the key to unlocking the mysteries of the show. When synced up with scenes from all of BB‘s seasons, the song perfectly tells the story of Walter White, if you accept that Felina is Walt’s blue meth.
Here’s a brief explanation from Bonnie Rose (sic throughout):
When Stephen Colbert talked to Vince Gilligan about the song El Paso used in the season finale of Breaking Bad, he asked if Felina was Jesse or the blue meth, and Vince basically said Felina was the blue meth.. Viewed that way, the song El Paso matches up with not only the scene it was used in and the season finale, but the entire series. Or at least I was able to shoehorn it all in, I have no idea if this is how the creators meant any of this. So I put together the rest of it, just the way I saw it, to the whole song before and after the actual scene from the finale.
Like most things with Breaking Bad, it really only raises more questions. Namely, whether the writers were really brilliant enough to have this planned all along, or whether it was just a perfect coincidence.
