Seeing how last year's thread worked fairly well, I figured another should be created for the final eight. The continuation of season five (or the beginning of season six - whatever you want to call it) starts August 11th. 

There has been very little shown of the new episodes. Most of it seems to be hush-hush, aside from a couple of vague promo pictures and cast interviews. 

Anyways, it shouldn't have to be said, but I'll say it anyways (or just paste what the mods had to say in last year's thread):

We're begging you--PLEASE make sure you add spoiler warnings in this thread. Failure to do so will result in unwanted time off. We're frigging serious about this, so consider yourselves warned!  

If you're discussing a promo for the following episode, please USE A SPOILER TAG. Some of us don't watch these promos.

Here's a refresher for those who may not how to post a clickable spoiler warning:

[spoiler] insert spoilers here [/spoiler]

Stakes will be high. The end game is in sight.

MOD EDIT: We were wondering when someone was gonna make this thread.  Thanks for adding last year's warning, too.  Being that the show's premiere is only a week away, we're gonna go ahead and sticky this now, to keep down the number of multiple threads.  

EDIT 2: Regarding the time limit of how long spoier tags are needed and for what episodes, here's the response:

 

 [QUOTE="dave123321"]So what stuff can be said without the need of a spoiler tag? Obvs anything pertaining to more then just pure speculation about unaired stuff, but what about episodes already aired? Hallenbeck77

Anything from Seasons 1 thru the first half of season 5 is open. Everything from the premiere onward MUST be in spoiler tags.
Can we discuss the latest episodes freely once they air on the east coast?dave123321
Wouldn't be fair to those who live on the west coast, would it? Spoiler tags are definitely gonna be needed from the season premiere onward until the weekend of the next new episode. On the Saturday before the next new episode airs, you can discuss the episode openly.

I'm assuming it's going to pick up right where the mid-finale left off. There's obviously going to be a time gap sometime during these episodes to get to Walt's 52nd birthday.

[spoiler] It's not a guarantee that he knows, or what exactly he will take away from reading that.  Since it's the last episodes I think that's a fair assumption, but I wouldn't be surprised if Walt initially comes up with an at least fairly believable lie.  Have you heard of the Gretchen theory?

I don't really wish to speculate on what's going to happen next. I just hope the quality of the show is maintained and no sharks are jumped in these last 8 episodes.

Anything from Seasons 1-4 is open. Everything from Season 5 and onward MUST be in spoiler tags. Since we're going to try to keep all discussions about the show in this thread, it'll be fair to those who wanna talk about it, but might not be completely up to speed yet. After the show premieres this Sunday, we'll loosen the spoiler tag rule for the first half of Season 5.

yea same.

though i was kinda mad. before they added the Breaking Bad episodes, they had added the final season of Fringe. i was elated. then next day i come to find they had been removed. looked it up and they accidentally added the Fringe episodes without the permission or something like that. made me sad.:P

I'm still kind of shocked in how fast everything went since the two last seasons. Then again how much more could you put on this story? I can't wait for it, big fan, hate for it to be the last.

Just out of curiousity, what are your thoughts on the proposed Breaking Bad spinoff series? It looks like it's had a good chance of happening, according to this story on The AV Club.

On one hand I think it's awesome and I'm excited for it.  On the other hand I'm worried that there is no way it can really live up to, and be as great as Breaking Bad.  Saul is easily one of my favorite characters on the show, but I'm not entirely sure if him being a main leading character will ruin some of his charm.

I wouldn't mind watching it. Saul Goodman is a great character. Still, it seems like the easiest thing to do would be to do a "wacky client of the week" kind of show, rather than a show with any real momentum or character development. And those kinds of shows tend to get old, in my opinion. If they actually have a story that they want to tell, I think they should go ahead with it. But if the whole point of this show is "more Saul Goodman", then I'd be worried about it becoming stale.

sammyjenkis898

[spoiler] Perhaps, I should be more clear.  I am sure that  Hank knows something, and I think it will trigger his obsessive nature that we've seen in the past.  I still think that if confronted by Hank initially, Walt will have a reasonable alibi for why he has the book.  I doubt this will sate Hank's interest at all though.  My personal opinion though, is that for Hank to immediately jump to the conclusion that Walter is "Heisenberg",  is a bit of a leap.  

To insantly think that his mild mannered brother-in-law is the Meth Kingpin he's been chasing for over a year would take a lot.  Does he also realize Walt is responsible for killing Gus Fring, and countless others? How much exactly does the book tell him?   I know that there's clues such as the dinner table conversation, the book, marriage crisis, "gambling" etc, but think, would you automatically assume that a member of your family is a huge drug lord?  I feel rather, that this is the push that gets the ball rolling where Hank begins fully putting the pieces together.

It is easy for us to envision Walt as a drug dealer, manufacturer, and killer because we've seen what he's done.  Hank still sees Walt as his family-member and hasn't witnessed all of that.  Imo, for Hank's very first thought to be after seeing the book, that Walt is "Heisenberg" is unrealistic from a family dynamic perspective.  It simply arouses suspicion, and as well know, when it comes to Hank that's all that's needed for him to begin an investigation.

i gotta say, when i first saw Saul. i figured he'd only be in like one episode. was annoyed a bit by his character.

but now after watching the whole series so far, i gotta say, he has been a very important asset to the show. and has grown on me.

just think, where do you think Walt and Jesse would be had they never crossed paths with Saul?
