It’s been 15 days since the mid-season finale of Breaking Bad aired. I’m sure you still have many unanswered questions, some of which Vince Gilligan has answered. But while you’re pondering those loaded Chekvhov’s Guns or if the Pink Bear will reappear, there are some ways to help cope with your Breaking Bad withdrawls.
Take, for instance, the image above: That’s from Jimmy Kimmel’s Twitter account, “foreshadowing” what we can expect when Kimmel hosts the Emmy Awards next Sunday. But it’s not nearly as cool as this Tweet from Aaron Paul:
That four-year-olds parents must be so proud. “Look! A guy who plays a meth dealer on TV tweeted about our kid!” I think I’d probably put that tweet in the family Christmas card.
Finally, I just spotted this over on Reddit. It’s been around for a while, but it’s new to me: Walter White’s arc set to a Hans Zimmer score. It’s beautiful and heartbreaking, and has a way of transforming Walter White from a anti-hero/evil villain into a mournful tragic hero. It’s kind of beautiful, actually.
I’m going to go cry now, and maybe inject the season four DVDs into my veins.
