No longer do we have to count down the days until Breaking Bad is back, pleasuring our brains with awesomeness — we can now count down the hours. No more pre-season speculation, no more trailers, no more posters: those are all a thing of the past, because tonight at 9 p.m. EST, Walter White & Co. will be back in our lives.

Over the past couple of weeks, the Breaking Bad of GIF-makers, Chet Manley, has been delivering season-by-season GIF guides. They’re all fantastic and you should definitely check them out, but in honor of tonight’s premiere, I thought I’d boil down five seasons worth of Breaking Bad plot into only 25 GIFs. A whole lot’s missing, but it’s enough of a reminder of where we are and how we got that. It’s almost here, you guys.
