Breaking Bad Season 5: Where Does Evil Take Walter White?

I won.

So Walter White uttered to close a mesmerizing fourth season of Breaking Bad, one that saw him dispatch enemy Gus Fring in one of television's most iconic death scenes.

But did Walter truly win? Will it all be smooth sailing going forward this summer, when the best show on TV returns to AMC, likely some time in July?

Walt in the Lab

“We pick up right where we left off,” Bryan Cranston tells EW of the premiere. “We’re cleaning up the pieces from last season’s huge ordeal where Gus Fring was forced to meet his maker. It’s not as easy as Walter thought. And as we’ve discovered over the years, you don’t really know who Walter White is. I’m still discovering who he is and I’m trying to allow myself to be open to him going darker and darker. There’s physical danger to himself and his family, plus there’s the emotional danger due to his anger and hubris. It’s about the evil that men do and where that takes him.”

While AMC is yet to confirm the schedule, meanwhile, Cranston also said the final season will be split into two sets of eight episodes.

“We’re going to shoot the first eight, then take a four-month production break, then the rest will air next year," he said, meaning the countdown to the summer of 2013 and the end of Breaking Bad's run is, sadly, already on.

I just keep thinking about those video cameras at the restaurant. Gus did not have the time to clean up certain things. Those cameras keep sticking in my mind. I have a feeling that Hank knows something of Walt's involvement, but doesn't want to believe it. I think it showed when he read Gale's journal & asked, "who do you think W.W. is? Willy Wonka, ... Walter White?...". That look, to me, said a lot. They could easily prove he wasn't at the car wash as he claimed to be, Jesse was brought in by the police for Brock's illness & Walt was seen with him at the hospital by the policemen, or cameras there etc...There are a lot of things that point to Walt being involved or at least having knowledge of the "super lab". Like Hank's going to buy that gambling story forever... Again, those cameras...I have a bad feeling about those! CAN'T WAIT THOUGH!!


It would have been cool if Gus had died from the bell the old guy in the wheelchair always rang lodging into his skull from the explosion


I hope jesse never finds out. walt needs to make it out of this alive. i love walt. hes so awesome and jesse. glad they're friends again


This is great I love it but I wish there was more than 8 episodes and I love-hate that I will have to wait to see how it ends! But I love that its not ending just yet! BEST SHOW EVER!!!mm.


They're extending the fifth and final season by 3 episodes to make up for the short first season, consisting of only 7 episodes as opposed to the regular 13, but splitting the final season into two parts nullifies the purpose. I think it's stupid, and I'm very dissappointed. If the world really does end at the end of this year and I don't get to see the end of the series, I'm gonna hate Vince Gilligan forever, despite how much I love him right now for making this show to begin with. *sigh* I'm so mad.


I love this show. I do worry that every scene I see Jesse in next summer I will be holding my breath that he starts to figure stuff out.

Breaking Bad Quotes

I watched Jane die. I was there, and I watched her die. I watched her overdose and choke to death. I could have saved her, but I didn't.


You're the smartest guy I ever met, and you're too stupid to see he made up his mind 10 minutes ago.
