My love is stronger than my fear of death

The Breaking Bad series finale was slightly better for Marty Robbins fan like me.

Warning: The spoilers below were provided by Marty:

Series creator Vince Gilligan had Walter Hartwell White steal a car with a Marty Robbins tape inside and played a few recognizable seconds of El Paso. Walt later hummed the song in a preparation scene for the episode's climax.

In El Paso, the protagonist runs from a crime on a stolen horse, but later returns to town because he needs to see his love Felina and ends up taking a bullet in the side but rides on to his death. I'm not going to spell out how Breaking Bad ended, but the final episode was called Felina and anyone who could figure out that the song was foreshadowing while they were watching it was treated to a richer experience.
