With only two more episodes left until the series finale, what did we expect from the cast and crew of Breaking Bad? Did we really think Walt and Hank could have rekindled their brotherhood after five years of lies?
Gilligan put it perfectly as he described how the final season of Breaking Bad would pan out. “Once this thing gets going, and it gets going very quickly, it just rolls along like gangbusters,” the show’s creator told The Daily Beast.
And he wasn't kidding. As the showdown between outlaws and the DEAs took place, we knew that poor Gomez was done for good, but we definitely weren't ready for the death of Hank. “You're the smartest guy I ever met,” Hank tells his brother-in-law after Walt pleaded to bargain $80 million for his brother’s life, “and you're too stupid to see: He made up his mind 10 minutes ago.” That made two of us, Walt. Tears streamed down our — uh, we mean Walt’s—face as Uncle Jack put a bullet through his brother’s head.
But Hank’s death just marked the beginning of the drama-infused Season 5, Episode 14. By the end of “Ozymandias,” we had watched Walt finally confess to Jesse how his late girlfriend really died, Skyler pull a knife on her husband, and Walt Jr. (aka Flynn) call the police on his beloved father, which resulted in Walt kidnapping his daughter. But it was the very last scene of Breaking Bad that pulled at our heartstrings. After five years of dodging bullets and cooking the most coveted meth for the sake of his family, Walt leaves and selflessly takes the blame for everything that has gone wrong, giving his family some semblance of peace.
But that's all set to change in Season 5, Episode 15 titled “Granite State.” According to the official Showtime synopsis, this is what we can expect to occur in next week’s episode: “Events set in motion long ago move toward a conclusion. (The Granite State is New Hampshire).”
It sounds like Walt has picked up and moved to New Hampshire, but Saul assures his client that no good can come of his disappearance. “You’re worried about your wife and kids. If they don’t have you, they’re going after her. There are two DEA agents missing — presumed dead. How much time have you got left?” the lawyer asks in the Breaking Bad promo for “Granite State.” We have to wonder who “they” are and what Walt could possibly have left that anybody would want. OK, yeah, he still has $10 million left to his name, but we’re pretty sure the former high school chemistry teacher wouldn't be frivolous with that cash and has most likely put it in the bank for his children.
What do you think will occur in Breaking Bad’s Season 5, Episode 15? Will Walt come back to his family during next week’s show? Leave your predictions in the comments section below and don’t forget to watch Breaking Bad on Sunday night at 9 p.m. on AMC.
