First up: in case you happen to be dumb enough to even be reading this post without finishing season four yet, **there are spoilers within.** Now, for everybody else, it’s just two weeks until we catch up with Walter White again in “Breaking Bad” season five, and holy fucking shit, we’re stoked.
AMC, who are pimping the show hard with the season premiere already slated to show at Comic-Con a day before it hits televsions across the nation, have now dropped a two minute clip from the first episode. First off, it looks like it’s picking up not long after the events of the astonishing season four finale, with Walt Jr. (RJ Mitte) informing his Dad that Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito) is dead and was a major drug dealer, with Skylar (Anna Gunn) unable to keep from saying (under her breath), “He knows.” The event has also turned Hank (Dean Norris) into something of a hero after he was dimissed by many after trying to tie Gus into a drug ring. Turns out he was right, and we’re guessing he will only be more emboldened to bring down whoever else is connected with Gus.
Of course, how Walt (Bryan Cranston) handles all this remains to be seen but if season four taught us nothing else, he will sink to any depths necessary to protect his family, himself and his business, of which he shows no signs of letting go. As he said in a previous teaser for the season: “There’s a market to be filled, and currently, no one to fill it.” “Breaking Bad” cooks up on July 15th at 10 PM. Watch below. [Collider]
