And next season is 16 episodes, and will be the show's final season.
    Thanks for your thoughts. I'll expand a little on my opinion.

    The first season had 7 (not 6) shows. As a pilot season, that's not too uncommon, testing things out. Season 2 was 13 episodes. Season 3 was 13 episodes, and this season, season 4 again 13 episodes. Aug 14 the season was renewed to season 5, as you say 16 episodes - prior to this renewal, it was understood that this season WAS likely the end however. The promotions changed from the end of "Breaking Bad" to the end of this season of "Breaking Bad". That's what I meant with open-ended up there.

    Season 1: set up of all the characters. Extremely well done. You are introduced to each, each with texture and motivation.

    Season 2: evolution of the characters - enmeshment with the plot. Walter White still has a human side, but it is faltering, and that's OK, and not OK.

    Season 3:


    Season 4:


    But these are just my opinions. They're not fully fleshed out to explain all the reasons I feel this way, and to do so would take more effort than a show on TV deserves from me atm.

    But I am glad you are enjoying the show, if I didn't get hooked obviously I wouldn't be tuned in either.

    Fan and critical support of the show is as strong if not stronger than ever. It's worth sticking with and deciding on your own.
    I agree. It's worth the watch.

    My guess:

He's also shown a side that's ethical, sensitive, and prone to deep guilt over his own actions and moral outrage over others'. He's been pretty troubled for much of the series, which may be why he doesn't show that spark and warmth that ESFPs usually do, and sometimes seems more introverted or flat.
    He's got an introspective side that comes from leading with Fi though I think. ISFP's often come across as being pretty extroverted, they are probably the most extroverted introvert IMO.

    I'm not at all convinced Skyler is a Feeler of any sort. One of the comments from an online recap pointed out that a major weakness in Skyler's plans and schemes is in predicting people's reactions. This is typically a strength of NFJs, but Skyler doesn't have it. She plans things out in detail, she sees a lot of possibilities and covers all her bases and crunches numbers....but she slips up when people's unanticipated feelings, behaviour or reactions throw things off. I'll put some specific examples below in spoiler tags (they are from the end of season 3 right up to where we are now):
    Yes these are good points ... I think they set her character up as an ENFJ though, but it's not remaining consistent, somehow?



    But that could still be Fe - what will people think when they see this car? It doesn't fit the "story" ...



    No, that could be Fe too - Fe is very resourceful in matters of people-stuff, it was a good story in that it could be believed within the context of the situation, from the people and practical POV's.

    From your list - yes, I could see Mike as an ISTJ as well.

    Yes, if something doesn't happen soon, he needs to hand in the INTJ card ...
