We’re less than three weeks away from the premiere of Season five of Breaking Bad, and that’s got to be bittersweet as creator Vince Gilligan has said that the fifth (though broken into two eight-episode chunks) is the last. So much has happened since Walter White (Bryan Cranston) was first diagnosed with cancer and decided to make meth to leave something for his family. And now there’s a teaser for the new season…
If you haven’t caught up with Breaking Bad, it follows White as he gains more power in the meth industry: going from an amateur with the best meth on the market to one of the primary makers of the product under the watchful eye of secretive drug kingpin Gustavo Fring (Giancarlo Esposito), along with him is his former student Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), who first got him into the game. From this teaser it looks like in the fifth season that White – seeing a power vacuum – has decided that he’d rather be the king than walk away.
That isn’t the only teaser, though many previous ones have been recaps of what’s happened before. Take for instance this teaser, which recaps all the deaths that have happened so far (and if that doesn’t make it plain enough, MASSIVE SPOILERS follow):
Point blank, Breaking Bad is one of the best shows on television, and one of the Great shows. It’s on AMC, and the new season starts July 15. If you haven’t started watching, you’ve got just enough time to play catch up.
Where would you like to see Walt and Jesse go this season?
