Sunday night's mid-season finale of AMC's Breaking Bad, starring Bryan Cranston, 56, as consummate meth kingpin Walter White, Aaron Paul, 33, as dealer-with-a-heart-of-gold Jesse Pinkman and Anna Gunn, 44, as the indignant spouse unwillingly caught up in a life of crime, may have left fans with more questions than answers heading into next summer's final demi-season, but creator Vince Gilligan, 45, is right there, willing to iron out some of the confusion.
Fans of the AMC hit Breaking Bad who did not see the most recent episode, “Say My Name,” should stop reading now because major spoilers lie ahead. In "Say My Name," Walter White (Bryan Cranston) further cemented his place as a cutthroat meth kingpin, wrapping up the episode by killing hitman Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks) when Mike dared to suggest that Walt might be suffering from an inflated ego.
It's no secret that Vince Gilligan's Breaking Bad is getting darker, Walter White (Bryan Cranston) is getting crazier and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) is getting closer to finding out the truth about his best friend / worst enemy.
If you're a fan of Breaking Bad, starring Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Dean Norris, Betsy Brandt and Bob Odenkirk, chances are you're not the delicate type, but get ready — things could get a whole lot worse in the two-part final season (broken up into eight episodes this summer and eight episodes next summer) of the hit AMC show that returns for its fifth season premiere on Sunday night, reveals creator Vince Gilligan.
In 12 days, Vince Gilligan's Breaking Bad, starring Bryan Cranston (Walter White), Aaron Paul (Jesse Pinkman), Anna Gunn (Skyler White) and Bob Odenkirk (Saul Goodman), will finally return to AMC for season five, and now an early clip of the show's season premiere, entitled "Live Free or Die," is making the rounds online.
The first two minutes of the Breaking Bad season three premiere are as offsetting as a Martin Heidegger lesson on the first day of a college Philosophy course. Both your professor and Breaking Bad mastermind Vince Gilligan are thrusting you into a gut wrenching head-trip, resulting in an intelligent and delightfully bizarre TV drama that steers clear of misplaced one-dimensional quirkiness.
The question Breaking Bad has been posing since it began in 2008 is simple: How far will some people go if they have nothing left to lose? When we were first introduced to Walter White, he entered a life of crime out of what he believed to be necessity.
