Breaking Bad Season 5 Episode 10 He has a machine gun, a fake drivers license and an unkempt appearance so we already have an idea that things are going wrong for Walter. The first episode in Breaking Bad’s two-part fifth season, which aired over a year ago now, began with a tantalizing prologue: Walter White, his hair regrown, CLICK HERE TO WATCH FULL EPISODE===> http://tiny.cc/vv13xw CLICK HERE TO WATCH FULL EPISODE===> http://tiny.cc/vv13xw CLICK HERE TO WATCH FULL EPISODE===> http://tiny.cc/vv13xw CLICK HERE TO WATCH FULL EPISODE===> http://tiny.cc/vv13xw a scruffy full Breaking Bad Season 5 Episode 10 beard across his grim face, eating at a Denny’s. It is his 52nd birthday (so we’re a good year in the “future”); he’s traveling the Southwest from New Hampshire, according to this driver’s license and his car’s plates. And in that restaurant’s bathroom, he makes a purchase: an M60 machine gun. That prologue was never hinted at again in the episodes that followed, but there is a mirror image of it in the first scene of the season’s back half — a scene that follows Walt back to what was once his Albuquerque home, and makes clear precisely how far he’s fallen. Of course, that heavy weapon in the trunk was the first thing viewers remembered when the partial season came to a close last fall, with Hank discovering that engraved copy of Leaves of Grass among Walt and Skyler’s toilet reading, and the sudden realization that, wrap-up montages to the contrary, Walter White wasn’t going to get away clean after all. But we knew that. Vince Gilligan and his writers tipped their hand right away, clear back in that opening, and what remains of the White home in episode nine, “Bloody Money,” confirms it. Deeper in the episode, once the timeline returns to the point where we left off, proper time is spent with Hank as he carefully pieces together exactly what he’s discovered, and who his brother-in-law is. (Perhaps the greatest pleasure of Hank’s character is how, over the course of the show, he’s become a great investigator — the hero of the story, going from the buffoon to the protagonist while Walter has transformed from hero to villain.) Those scenes are enjoyable, but in a peculiar way, because we are one step ahead of him. Yet as per usual with Breaking Bad, the thrill is less about what’s going to happen (we know at least the broad strokes) than how it’s going to happen.And beyond the obvious question of what will become of Walter White (gunned down by his brother-in-law? Dead of cancer? Rotting away in a tiny cell? Floating away in a boat full of cash?), and exactly how much wreckage he’s created, there is the matter of Jesse Pinkman. We’ve become so obsessed with Walter’s fate that we may not have properly considered his young protégé, who has still not recovered from the events of the previous season; we’ve seen Jesse burned out, a shell of himself, but it’s no longer the exception to his personality. He and Walter share a scene in the next episode that is one of their grimmest, full of lies and deception and accusations and things left unsaid. And, eventually, Mr. White just loses his patience. “You need to stop focusing on the darkness behind you,” he tells Jesse. “The past is the past.” That line may well hold the key to exactly what these final episodes of Breaking Bad will be. This is a thoroughly moralistic show, and much of its genius lies in how stubbornly it insists on considering consequences. Throughout its run, Gilligan and his writers follow through not just on the logical domino effects of split-second decisions and rotten luck, but on the hefty psychological repercussions of its characters’ actions. The darkness behind these two men is considerable, more than any of us could imagine having to bear. Jesse can’t stop focusing on it, can’t let it go. Walter White is more than willing to; it comes easily to him. The question is whether his horrifying past is, in fact, just “the past” — and whether it is through with him. With Breaking Bad, television’s finest drama, winding up for the beginning of its final season this Sunday, Flavorwire is taking a look back at five years of America’s favorite meth-cooking cancer survivor, and preparing for the last eight episodes of his story.Emily and Matt, It’s an understatement to say that I’m looking forward to the final eight episodes of Breaking Bad. I feel the same way as I did as a kid on Christmas Eve—I’ll soon know what’s been kept under wraps for so long. Only instead of gifts and lovely grub, this reveal will surely involve sadness, horror, and bloodshed. Still, like those long-ago Christmases, the anticipation has me goofily excited and, I admit, a little worried that after all that buildup, I’ll wind up disappointed. At the end of the first half of the final season, Walt had mopped up the remnants of Gus Fring’s organization by slaughtering his men, and he had shifted from ruling the Albuquerque meth biz to conquering a whole new continent, thanks to Lydia’s business connections in the Czech Republic. He told Skyler, “I’m out,” and he seemed to mean it. And then Hank used the bathroom, read the inscription inside Leaves of Grass, and realized that his brother-in-law, Walter White, was the drug kingpin he’s chasing. My guess is that in the coming episodes we’ll move from Walt Whitman to another 19th-century writer, Herman Melville. Hank is Capt. Ahab, and Heisenberg is the white whale he needs to land. (Heisenberg even took away his legs—though in Hank’s case, it was a temporary loss.) After Episode 408, we talked about all the things that could go wrong with Hank’s pursuit—after all, it really doesn’t look good for a senior DEA agent to be so closely linked to an international drug kingpin. My concerns were alleviated when I interviewed Vince Gilligan shortly after that episode aired. When I asked him to describe Hank in a few words, he said, “Truth at all costs.” That doesn’t sound like a guy who’ll allow family ties to derail justice. It’s time to sharpen your harpoon, Hank. "Breaking Bad" season 5 part 2 premieres Sunday, August 11 at 9PM ET on AMC. "Breaking Bad" season 5 part 2 returns for its penultimate season and will feature the final chapter in the Walter White (Bryan Cranston) story. We already received some "Breaking Bad" season 5 part 2 spoilers during Comic-Con 2013, but we got a mash-up compilation of scenes rather than a trailer that would hint at what to expect in the premiere."Episode 9 titled "Blood Money," will show Walt and Jesse adjusting to life finally out of the business, while Hank struggles with a shocking lead. Fans know that this lead will most likely be right where episode 8, "Gliding Over All," left off - with Hank discovering that Walt is Heisenberg. Since the synopsis says that Hank will struggle with the lead, could it mean that he won't be taking immediate action and possibly try and help Walt out?" We agree that Hank will certainly won't take immediate action in "Breaking Bad" season 5 part 2, after getting over the initial shock, he will need to build evidence to demonstrate his suspicions and build his case. It's no small matter to accuse his seemingly mild-mannered brother in law of being the most notorious drug lord in the Southwest United States. NJ.com received a preview of the "Breaking Bad" season 5 part 2 premiere, "Blood Money." They haven't posted a full recap, but apparently after Walter returns to his family and stops being Heisenberg for a year, at some point everything goes wrong. In the first episode of "Breaking Bad" season 5 we saw Walter on the run eating a birthday breakfast at Denny, mournfully ripping up the bacon the way Skyler used to. In the second "Breaking Bad" season 5 part 2 preview, we see more of how bad things have gotten. Walter returns home (we're not sure how the timeline continuity is working here yet), he founds the house boarded up and fenced up. We don't know what happened exactly, but it is clearly linked to his brother-in-law Hank discovering his identity as Heisenberg. Whatever has happened, it appears that Walter is on the run from the law and possibly rivals who want his meth again.At the end of "Breaking Bad" season 5 part 1, Walter showed little inclination for quitting his illegal activities entirely. It will be interesting to see what drove him to these circumstances exactly. As for Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), in the "Breaking Bad" season 5 part 2 preview he still seems torn by guilt over the death of the boy who saw them at work in the train heist. He seems to be trying to spend the $5 million share he got the best he can. When it comes to the big plot spoilers for "Breaking Bad" season 5 part 2, apparently it's not a surprise, but it comes fast. NY Daily New reports, "The biggest plot development, which we won't reveal here, won't surprise viewers. Its speed and ferocity might. If this first episode foreshadows the other seven, much of the drama will be psychological. While Bryan Cranston's Walter White tries to ignore the toll of his chosen course on those around him, the wreckage has begun piling up." It is hard to say exactly what this is hinting at, but whatever it is, Walter won't walk away unscathed. That we know.
