Last week on “Breaking Bad,” the pollos finally came home to roost.
Ted (Christopher Cousins) may be dead. Gus (Giancarlo Esposito) fired Walt (Bryan Cranston) and put a hit out on Hank (Dean Norris). Skyler (Anna Gunn) hired Sal (Paul Odenkirk) who hired goons to make sure Ted paid the IRS, but did nothing to stop him from dramatically tripping and falling over his own carpet. Walt got Sal to alert the DEA that Hank and Marie (Bestsy Brandt) were in danger. Jesse (Aaron Paul) is officially Da Man. Then, as Walt prepared to take all of the money he had stashed in the basement and buy a new identity, he learned that Skyler gave a big chunk of it away. Cue the maniacal laughter. Walt’s web of lies is unraveling. The series has finally hit such an intense, fever pitch that there are no lame filler scenes that AMC can pull out for the preview of this weeks episode, “End Times”.
Watch as Walt continues freaking the hell out as he realizes that everyone he loves is in danger, thanks to him, and there is no way out. It looks like he is finally showing concern for someone other than himself, attempting to get the hell out of dodge and stay away from Hank and Marie.
Will Walt, Hank, Jesse and Gus all survive the episode? Will Skyler manage to cover for Walt’s disappearance? Will Gus kill Walt’s kids? Will Hank figure out that the call is metaphorically coming from inside the house? Tune in Sunday.
