Breaking Bad Season 5: Walter White Gets Cocky in New Poster (PHOTO)
Looks like Walter White has been auditing courses at the Kanye West School for Aggressive Self-Promotion.
In the latest poster for Breaking Bad — whose fifth and final season returns for eight epic episodes on August 11 — Walter White stares menacingly into our very souls, fists balled into weapons of mass chemistry-instruction.
The tagline screams in bright yellow letters: "REMEMBER MY NAME."
Yes, Mr. White! Whatever you say, Mr. White! Please don't kill us, Mr. White!
Walter's transformation from benign high-school teacher to malignant drug lord has been truly captivating, and from the sound of it, it's all going to hell in the show's endgame.
"We often said in the writers’ room that if Walt had a superpower, it would be not his chemistry knowledge or his ability to cook crystal meth but his ability to lie," the show's creator, Vince Gilligan, told Entertainment Weekly earlier this month.
“Walt has been the world’s greatest liar, and I think the person he lies most capably to is himself. So in these final eight episodes, perhaps the lies will cease to find traction and the scales will start to fall away from Walt’s eyes. And when that happens, will Walt really begin to realize who he is? That’s a question that we asked ourselves a lot in the writers’ room this year."
Breaking Bad returns Sunday, August 11 at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
