With the series finale of “Breaking Bad” drawing nearer, viewers are anxious for the big finale, to say the least. The show has won seven Primetime Emmy’s – three for main character Bryan Cranston, who plays Walter White, two for supporting actor Aaron Paul, who plays Jesse Pinkman and two for Outstanding Drama Series. In honor of the show’s ending, here is a small recap and a preview of what to expect:
Walter White started out as a humble chemistry teacher at a local high school in Albuquerque, New Mexico. When he did not have sufficient funds to pay for his lung cancer treatment, he turned to cooking methamphetamine. After joining forces with his former trouble-making student, Jesse Pinkman, the duo’s enterprise started out relatively small, with the two making their infamous blue meth in an RV. As time passed and more dealers became interested in Walt’s meth, he began to cook in a full laboratory. Now, viewers realize that this decision was the cause of his downfall.
Season 5, one of the craziest seasons yet, has plenty of unexpected plot twists and revelations, making the ending incredibly hard to predict. Many people expected Walt to get caught and arrested by his brother-in-law, Hank, who works for the Drug Enforcement Agency. However, in episode 11, Walt gives Hank a video confession that shows “proof” that Hank is the mastermind behind the meth operation. Hank has been working on finding Walt for years and now Hank will surely be fired, if not prosecuted, for being part of the scheme.
Another theory that some people predict will occur in finale encompasses a final showdown between Jesse and Walt. The team broke up after Jesse realized that Walt had been manipulating and killing people behind his back. This will then draw Jesse into collaborating with Hank to try to bring Walt down from his throne of greed and control.
The season finale will surely be one of the most shocking episodes viewers have ever seen. The show’s creator Vince Gilligan has always kept the show’s viewers at the edge of their seats, and with all of the crazy twists and turns that have been thrown at the fans since episode one, all viewers alike are sure to be surprised at what Gilligan has in store for them in the series finale. Additionally, the “Breaking Bad” producers dedicated the season premiere to the late Kevin Cordasco by showing his name and a picture in the ending credits. Tune in on Sunday Sept. 29 at 6 p.m. to see the highly anticipated finale.
