“Breaking Bad” delivered its greatest episode with “Ozymandias”
In last night’s episode, says Tim Goodman, “it was like every moment contained a line or an action that you couldn”t believe was playing out– partly because we”ve all been waiting for them to unfold, pretty much since the show began but most definitely, and with authority, in this final season. This, with two episodes to go, felt like the biggest reveal in all five seasons — the writers flipping almost all the cards over, playing their hands, ending the suspense (and yet, most people were still probably barely breathing or stuck to the ceiling).” PLUS: “Conan” welcomes “Breaking Bad” creator and cast the day after Emmys, “Ozymandias” director Rian Johnson tried to avoid learning the ending, Were those Walt’s pants?, this episode yanked our hearts into our throats, one of the most emotionally destructive yet dramatically satisfying hours of TV, “Breaking Bad” props sell out for a New Mexico charity, how Jesse’s scene was shot, it was a parade of your worst nightmares, Was that Heisenberg or Walter White?, and this one of the best yet most sickening episodes of this great show.
