Breaking Bad has returned for its final bow. The critically-acclaimed AMC drama kicked off the first of its last eight episodes in the series last night (Aug. 11), returning binge viewing fans to the world of Walter White (played superbly by Bryan Cranston), everyone’s favorite high-school-chemistry-teacher-turned-drug-kingpin.
If you haven’t seen the show at—or went through part 1 on Season 5—stop reading this NOW! Something big and surprising happened at the end of Sunday’s episode that U.K. fans are just now getting a chance to enjoy. And we here at VIBE are not spoilers! Now, that we’ve gotten rid of the stragglers, the show picks up with Hank (Dean Norris) finally being hit with the hammer of truth that his brother-in-law Walt is the meth king of New Mexico known as Heisenberg.
Directed by Cranston himself, the mid-season opener titled “Blood Money,” is full of high tension moments, sheer WTF-moments, and a hilarious Star Trek pie-eating story told by Jesse Pinkman’s friend Badger.
As Breaking Bad fans come down from last night’s euphoric high, we take a look at the most noteworthy reactions to the mid-season premiere.
