Fan Theory: The Perfect Metaphor For Walter White’s Soul (Uproxx)
"This theory, developed over on Reddit, contains a brilliant, spot-on observation, though the theory that comes out of it is a little specious:
MrNat96: The Aztec that Walt drives is a symbol for the status of his soul. For instance, whatever he commits an evil act, he damages the car, and damages his soul. At this point (5x04) Walt decides to sell his car for $50, selling his soul
This is also the moment where Walt chooses to fully become Heisenberg (there are some other possible moments too). He extracts the part of him that is Heisenberg and abandons the rest.
"I absolutely love the metaphor, and given the fact that Vince Gilligan chose a certain car and had it painted a certain color, it’s clearly an intentional connection we’re supposed to get. That White pulls out his Heisenberg hat cements the connection: Walter White is dead. Heisenberg is all that’s left. It’s probably no coincidence, either, that in the very same episode, Skyler — abandoned fully by Walter and saddled with Heisenberg — walks into the deep end of a pool."
"What does Walt buy next? A Chrysler 300, a car strongly associated with America’s gangster/drug culture. It’s also black, just like Heisenberg’s soul. Long live Heisenberg!" – Dustin Rowles
I’ve now finished my new Walter White portrait, very proud of it. I’ve included a little timelapse gif for your perusal.
If you like the portrait and would like to see it on a shirt its currently up for voting at Design By Humans, I’d wager I need somewhere in the vicinity of 100 votes for it to get printed, so tell your friends. Here’s the link to the voting page:
Alternatively if you’d like a print, iPhone/iPad case or a bunch of other stuff you can get them from my Society6 shop, here: http://society6.com/robo3687
There’s a bunch of other portraits there too.
THIS is amazing!
