Well, tomorrow is the final Breaking Bad episode. I figured I’d go ahead and post this early. If you don’t want spoilers up to and including the series finale, go away.
Felina could simply be an anagram. Vince Gilligan mentioned this. It could mean Blood (Fe), Meth (Li), Tears (Na). There’s been enough blood throughout Breaking Bad and will presumably be some in the finale. Lithium isn’t usually in meth, but there are Nazis this season and the Nazi method of meth does use litium. Sodium is definitely in tears. So I don’t know.
Is Walt making using the Nazi method to make meth? I don’t think he is. It’s possible he used that method in the first few episodes before they got methylamine, but based on my limited knowledge of cooking meth, I’m fairly sure that is not part of it. But what do I know?
Could have something to do with the Marty Robbins song “El Paso” which is about a girl named Feleena. I believe there was a companion piece called “Feleena”.
If it’s not just an anagram I suspect FeLiNa is the secondary meaning. Many Breaking Bad episodes have dual meanings for the title so it would not be surprising if there is one. I’m fairly one an additional character named Felina will not be introduced.
Gilligan mentioned “woodworking” as the hint for this episode. Elliot’s office is wall to wall wood bookshelves. Walt was clearly pissed off at Elliot and Gretchen at the end of Granite State.
Also, according to the gentlemanly Uncle Jack, Lydia is “so uptight she’s probably got a wood-chipper as a coochie”. Fairly certain that’s not it.
We’ll know soon enough, but what a series this has been.
