Breaking Bad has unveiled the first new photograph of its upcoming final eight episodes, and it looks like Jesse is a hot mess and Walter is being a dick about it. So it's fair to guess that there's no great change of heart coming from Walter in these final episodes.
Breaking Bad will resume the second half of its fifth season on August 11th. A spin-off based on the character Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) is currently in the works, and series creator Vince Gilligan will also write and direct the show's very last episode.
Breaking Bad follows protagonist Walter White (Bryan Cranston), a chemistry teacher who lives in New Mexico with his wife (Anna Gunn) and teenage son (RJ Mitte) who has cerebral palsy. White is diagnosed with Stage III cancer and given a prognosis of two years left to live. With a new sense of fearlessness based on his medical prognosis, and a desire to secure his family's financial security, White chooses to enter a dangerous world of drugs and crime and ascends to power in this world. The series explores how a fatal diagnosis such as White's releases a typical man from the daily concerns and constraints of normal society and follows his transformation from mild family man to a kingpin of the drug trade.
