There's just one week standing between us and the fifth season premiere of Breaking Bad. AMC has given us numerous teasers and trailers leading up to the premiere, the latest of which offers us a few new glimpses of the approaching season and what's ahead for Walt, Jesse, Hank and Skylar.
Moderate spoiler warning!
In the last video we shared, words like "ascendant" and "triumphant" were being used by series creator Vince Gilligan to describe the place Walter White is in in Season 5. Based on this new promo, it seems Walt knows it…
"Because I say so."
If Walt has any shred of doubt about his place or his future in the meth dealing industry, he isn't showing it. Gus' exit might be a way out for Walt if he wanted it, no? Would he be able to walk away from this life at this point without much fallout? Whether or not that's the case, he seems determined to move onward and upward in this business, now that Gus is out of the picture, cashing in on the market while it's hot.
Hank is still determined to track down Heisenberg, and Skylar appears to realize that her family is in trouble. "Someone has to protect this family from the man who protects this family," she said. Is there anyone she can turn to? Or will she need to handle the situation herself?
Breaking Bad premieres Sunday, July 15 at 10/9c on AMC.
