‘Breaking Bad’ season 5, the FINAL season… We’re all looking forward to it, wondering what lies ahead for Walt, the ultimate of protagonists (one that’s so multi-dimensional, it’s clear he’s a good guy who’s still capable of bad things).
As the story of Walt comes to an end, we look back fondly at the series and share our favorite parts of the show:
We all love him. He’s the comic relief in amongst the drama and madness. From his cheesy TV commercials, to his nonchalant nature to all of Walt and Jesse’s highly immoral antics. When there’s a problem, we can all bet that Saul will come up with a perfect yet suspect way of solving it… as long as he gets paid of course! It’s that underlying motivation that holds his character at the core. That ensure he always stays true to the Saul we all know and love.
THE BATH TUB SCENE
Why was Walt so insistent on Jesse finding those special plastic tubs from the hardware store, when he had a perfectly good bath tub upstairs?
Well we soon found out why didn’t we? Oh that mess than came pouring down was the most gruesome sight since ‘Carrie’ on her prom night.
This was one of the most unforgettable scenes of ‘Breaking Bad’ and yet symbolic of the trying times to come for the meth lab partners.
THE WRONG GUY
Speaking of unforgettable scenes, who could forget the one where Badger was talking to the wrong “Heisenberg” at the bus stop?
Badger was one of those other great supporting characters that added that much needed humor into a heavy and intense situation.
These scene was in the same episode where it started off with the hilarious opening when Badger first got busted by the undercover cop, at the same bus stop we might add… And look at who’s picture is plastered over the bench Badger is sitting on! Nothing goes unnoticed in this show, they certainly make every line, every prop, every moment count… And that, my friends is what writing for this industry is all about! Making it count!
Hector Salamanca. Who would have thought a character who never spoke a word could make such an IMPACT (excuse the pun).
AND, who would have thought that he would get his own sweet revenge on Gus in Season 4’s last episode? Boy was it good!
The tapping of the bell… Walt’s explosive that just wouldn’t blow up without several attempts, worked so harmoniosly with that infamous “ping” of Hector’s bell.
Then the final, most shocking moment, when Gus appeared from out of the rubble, still able to fix his tie! -We thought he was like the Terminator, forever unkillable… until… until the camera angle moved to show us…
