I really don't know where the show goes from now. Things are pretty wrapped up at this point.
I saw a couple of people saying that sort of thing after the fourth season, with some even suggesting that it should be the series finale and a fifth season would ruin the ending, and I don't understand the sentiment. Breaking Bad wasn't about the conflict between Gus and Walt, Gus was merely an obstacle to overcome so that Walt could become the meth kingpin himself. It was a great season finale, but I feel would have made for a poor series finale.

Ok, they were talking about Gus dying then. They were talking about somebody dying!
They were talking about Brock, who is alive. That scene revealed that Gus didn't poison Brock, thus Jesse's motive for helping Walt take down Gus was flawed, so Jesse attempted to rationalise his complicity in the crime. It set up the reveal that Walt was actually the one who poisoned Brock to trick Jesse into helping him kill Gus.

It was kinda an important scene.

The rest of the show is a light hearted rom-com after the unexpected introduction of Hugh Grant in 501.

Oh, sorry, you said no spoilers

Re: Starting Breaking Bad (NO SPOILERS!)

I've just seen 5.6 and Jesus Christ.. i thought with the season 4 finale most of it was settled and there were just a few loose ends to tie up but damn do they ever increase the tension.

I can't wait to catch up the the current episode so i can finally talk spoiler free and don't have to tip toe around certain sites.

Definitely one of the best shows i have ever seen because it only gets better each season instead of the other way around (most shows have a stellar first season but then gradually drop of to be somewhat in the middle or totally go off the rails.. BSG an example for the first and Lost an example for the latter). It fully deserved every award it got and Bryan Cranston/Aaron Paul are one of the most awesome/terrifying duos in current TV.

Just finished 5X5 where they rob a train. That was exciting. And what a tragic ending. And no, it's not Walt's fault, it's the dumb blonde guy's!

Shit. You're about to get to the part where Walt wakes up and says "we have to go back to the island, Skyler!"

Re: Starting Breaking Bad (NO SPOILERS!)

Just saw 5X9. I can't believe they let the cat out of the bag right out the gate like that. I thought the final episodes were going to be about Hank spying on him and building his case... now I don't know what it's going to be about...

Re: Starting Breaking Bad (NO SPOILERS!)

OK! I am officially caught up with the series! I just finished the last new episode. Much as I hate Walt for killing Mike, I felt really bad for him when they found out where the money was. But the moment Hank had a touching I love you moment with his wife I knew he was a marked man. That was a bit of a silly shoot out. Hundreds of bullets and NOBODY GOT HIT?! I expected Hank and Gomey to go down with the first volley.

Re: Starting Breaking Bad (NO SPOILERS!)

It's TV, it's OK to be a little silly. The fact Todd got there so quick is a little far fetched too.
