Spoiler Alert: Go back the way you came if you aren’t caught up with Breaking Bad’s incredible fourth season.
The anticipation for Breaking Bad’s fifth and final season grows by the day. AMC, very good at marketing their product, is doing its part to fan the flames, in the form of a 30-second Youtube advertisement. The first actual promo video for the upcoming fifth season is centered around one of the biggest “OH-MY-FUCKING-GOD-DID-THAT-REALLY-JUST-HAPPEN-WOW” moments in television history: Gustavo Fring getting his face blown half-way across the country. As series fans know, this conclusion leaves a sizable vacancy at the head of the Meth big boy table, and if we’re to believe the trailer’s “All Hail The King” talk, Walter White is ready to be that dude. The clip doesn’t go into further detail – the Walter-Jesse relationship is, unfortunately, left unexamined – but does a good job at highlighting how far White has come from the first season.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have about 13 episodes to re-watch.
Breaking Bad airs July 15th.
