Despite its quite modest length of 5 seasons and 62 episodes, Breaking Bad became a titan of a show, with a massive impact on pop culture and a wealth of awards, including 16 Emmys.

One of the reasons for its success was its fascinating cast of characters.

While Walter White (Bryan Cranston ), a chemistry teacher who decided to start cooking meth in order to leave his family some money after he got diagnosed with lung cancer, was undoubtedly the central character of the show, many of the supporting characters were interesting in their own.

One of them was Jane Margolis (Krysten Ritter), a love interest of Walter's key assistant, Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul). She was only in the series during Season 2, eventually dying of heroin overdose, but her existence and fate helped to push Jesse down the path which he followed for the rest of the show.

And after exiting the show, Krysten Ritter still kept watching it faithfully until the conclusion, and kept loving it until the very end. And the finale impacted her hard.

"Oh, man, that show is so good," she said in an interview with Collider. "I was like, 'Ahhh!' watching it, and like, pacing back and forth. I watched the season finale twice, maybe three times. I wanted it to go on. I cried. I felt it for days. I was just like every other crazy a** fan. It affected me in every way, and that's rare that that happens."

She then went on to compare Breaking Bad with the classic funeral home drama Six Feet Under and the -survival drama All is Lost, starring Robert Redford, in terms of emotional impact. So, basically she became a super-fan, deeply emotionally invested in Breaking Bad's story. Which is not that common for actors. Even those of them who love their job, often might be indifferent to the story in which they play as a whole, never mind the cases when an actor hates a particular role.

That said, we can agree with her assessment of Breaking Bad's finale, even if we do not express our sentiments so strongly – it certainly was a great, emotionally powerful ending for a great show.
