New BREAKING BAD Teaser Hits The Internet
Breaking Bad, the best show on the air since The Wire wrapped up, is coming back soon. But it never feels like soon enough. Like some sort of possible lover, answering texts months after you confess your undying love for them, dammit, Breaking Bad! Don’t you feel the same way?
Like everyone at the Complex, the mere mention of Breaking Bad makes me weak at the knees, dreaming of a glamorous life where I too can manufacture meth and have no one who loves me that I haven’t horribly hurt.
The preview of the new season of Breaking Bad has just come online, and while it doesn’t show much, it pretty much got me on edge already. The teaser in question, (embedded below), is a tiny snippet of a scene with Walt (Bryan Cranston) menacing his lawyer, Saul Goodman (my favourite current aptronym, played by the awesome Bob Odenkirk).
While the scene barely lasts 17 seconds, it perfectly encapsulates the transformation of our favourite bastard, Walter White, and the slow shift in power that has been happening over the course of the series.
For those of you who can’t watch embedded video, it comes down to this: Saul: “You and me? We’re done.” [Walter stands ominously. Presses his face against Saul’s in a way that shouldn’t be sexy, but hey, if you’re into that thing, will probably get you some more rewatch value in this.] Walt: “We’re done when I say we’re done.”
Cranston’s line delivery in this is sensational, as always. What this means for the upcoming season is uncertain, but it certainly seems like the doomed Walter White is continuing his spiral towards total corruption, and that this year will only push forward with more of the uncompromising storytelling that has been the show’s calling card these last four years.
Breaking Bad returns in a month, on July 15th, with its fifth season, which was set to be the “final season.” And sure, it’s still the final season. But, as is the way with lucrative properties like this, the “final season” has been broken in half, with the first eight of the season this year, and a possible year-wait until the second eight episodes of the season.
So, if you’re in the rather common situation I’m in, you’ll need to renegotiate with the hitman who you’ve paid to kill you in order to give your family that life insurance boon, to hold off on your murder for a year to see this season through. Which I’m about to do, right after I devour this delicious-looking bomb-shaped cake that’s been left on my doorstep.
