Viewing parties were held all throughout the Delaware Valley, and some local bars, like the Old Eagle Tavern in Manayunk, even passed up on football in favor of a day-long marathon of the final season.
Every TV in the building was set to AMC, as fans of the series gathered around the bar.
Erin Wallace is the owner at the Old Eagle Tavern, who put together the show-inspired menu:
“We did a couple fried chicken specials for Los Pollos Hermanos,” she said. “So we have a fried chicken platter with mashed potatoes, coleslaw and gravy. We have fried chicken tacos.”
So how did fans want to see the story of Walter White come to an end?
“I have a sneaking feeling that Walter, even though he’s going to lose his family, is going to get away with it,” this fan said.
“They’re both going to die. That’s what I think,” this other fan predicted.
Fans seemed to be in agreement that regardless of the outcome, they were just happy to have been along for the ride.
