Breaking Bad 5.15, Granite State Review

Spoilers for those who have not seen the episode yet.

The penultimate episode of Breaking Bad may not be as intense as the groundbreaking Ozymandias, but it takes its time building towards the finale while examining the devastation Walter White has left behind him. He’s in a very precarious state, wanting revenge against Jack and his gang but being in a very powerless position for him to do anything about it. For the first time in a long time, we saw shades of Walter White rather than Heisenberg.

It’s interesting though the full scope of what he’s done and the ramifications for his family still haven’t hit him yet. He thinks the phone call from the end of last week’s episode will be enough for Skyler to escape the justice system, but Saul rightfully tells him sooner or later the government will go after her.
