‘Breaking Bad’ Season 5 (Part I): A GIF Retrospective

By 08.09.13

To provide a different sort of look back on Breaking Bad, I’ll be creating season-by-season GIF highlight guides leading up to the final eight episodes.

Last season ended with Walt as a winner. This one starts with a guy full of hair and a fake ID buying an M60, so clearly something has changed. I’m sure we’ll find out more about this development in the next eight weeks, but first we deal with the aftermath of last season’s explosive ending.

Reluctantly, Mike Teams Up With Walt And Jesse. We Also Learn How Magnets Work.
