the season starts off with walt turning 52 and he looks to be on the run, presumably trying to get away from the authorities or a rival cartel…we won’t really know until the second half of the season, evidently.
the first few episodes took a little while to get rolling. or maybe it took a while for me to get back into the swing of the show. but by the end of the season i was wanting more just like always. just like always bad shit happens and walt needs to solve the problems he’s created for himself, jesse and whomever else is sucked into his black hole of a life. it’s truly a cautionary tale. seeing skyler on the edge of a nervous breakdown, jesse being pushed to the edge again, and the children out of the house…it starts what will likely be a season long collapse from walt who gradually gave into ego, greed, and self-pity. the series could just be called “breaking.”
