When last we left our antiheroes, Walter White (Bryan Cranston) was doing some creative bargaining with his murderers-to-be and Jessie Pinkman (Aaron Paul) was about to kill the competition, so that Walter’s plan would work. Cliffhanger though it was, we know how that will pan out (to a certain degree), else the show as we know it would end. Now we don’t know exactly how Jessie and Walt will squeeze out of this, the umpteenth seemingly impossible situation in three adrenaline-fueled seasons, but we do know Walt’s heart will go on. (Ooh, that was bad.) Except, how much bargaining power will the boys gain, having pissed off Gus (Giancarlo Esposito) to the point that he put out hits on them both? Meanwhile, as soon as he’s back on his feet, Hank (Dean Norris) will be sniffing their trail again, Skyler (Anna Gunn) is way too involved in the family business and who knows when the next cartel psychopath will emerge?
Though there doesn’t seem to be new footage here, the trailer will remind you of why you watch this show; if you don’t watch, kick yourself in the ass and hop to it.
