'Breaking Bad' Finale and Spoilers: 'It's Really Good,' Says Betsy Brandt

The final episode of hit AMC drama "Breaking Bad" air this Sunday in the much anticipated series finale. Actress Betsy Brandt, who plays Marie Schrader on the show, recently discussed what it was like filming the final episode was like. She also revealed a bit about what fans can expect from the finale this Sunday.

It seems that the finale of "Breaking Bad" will be quite the tear-jerker. When asked how many boxes of tissues viewers will need by Entertainment Weekly, Brandt indicated many.

"I think you're going to need a lot. Regardless of how it ends – and the ending is good, it's really good – [but] one of the things I'm most proud of on this show is the story and how much everyone has grown to love these characters. My character isn't the easiest person to love. And listen, there are people that don't love her, but there are so many people who do and I love them all. My ending would probably be completely Pollyanna so it's good I don't write the show because I want them all to win. I want them all to survive and win," the actress said.

Brandt discussed what it was like to film the final episode of "Breaking Bad."

"I wasn't thinking 'Oh this is the end,'" she said of the filming. "I was thinking about the moment. But then after it was over I just thought, 'Oh my God. That's it,'" she explained.

She also spoke about the scene she had the hardest time filming as the show came to an end.

"My hardest scene was the restaurant scene. … I told Walt he should kill himself. I told Bryan [afterwards], 'Can I hug you?' I said it over and over again, and I felt so sick. I hate looking [Cranston] in the eye and meaning it when I say it. And he was very sweet. And I love him," Brandt said.

"He's such a a great actor, a great man and a great friend … It would be much easier to walk away if there weren't such great memories. Vince Gilligan, he made this show about a high school teacher who cooks meth and it changed all of our lives," she added.

The "Breaking Bad" series finale, titled "Felina," airs Sunday night at 9 p.m.
