BREAKING BAD IS BACK!!!!! The second part of season 5 begins tonight on AMC. I feel like it has been a year since this show was off the air. I knew about this show but never got on it for some idiotic reason. Thank God for me being a student and having winter breaks off because December 2012 is when I finally got it together and watched the show.
For anyone that has waited for this to return, you will not be disappointed. When we last saw them, Hank (Dean Norris), Walt’s DEA brother-in-law, had just stumbled upon a huge clue that made him realize that Walt is Heisenberg; Walt (Bryan Cranston) killed Mike (Jonathan Banks) and had also had all of Gus’ former employees killed in prison. He also paid Jesse (Aaron Paul) all the money he owed him and told Skylar (Anna Gunn) that he retired from the business.
The episode back will not disappoint. I had the pleasure of going to the Los Angeles première about 2 or 3 weeks ago and watching it with the cast (I met Aaron Paul – the nicest guy ever). The episode starts with a small recap of the entire show and then resumes from where it ended with Hank in the bathroom figuring out that Walt Heisenberg. I won’t say anything further about the episode but I’ll just say this – the end of the episode is EVERYTHING.
AMC is showing all the previous season 5 episodes today at 12:30/11:30am leading up to the première of part 2 at 9pm/8c. If you don’t want to wait, the entire series is on Netflix to binge on. Also be sure to catch Talking Bad after the episode airs where the last 8 episodes of the series will be discussed.
