Best of Breaking Bad, #13: “Krazy-8”

*Spoiler alert: as always, do not read or watch unless you have seen this before or don’t mind spoilers. You have been warned*

Dies.

But we all knew that, right?

Walt killing Krazy-8 in 01×03 (embedding disabled by request, link should work) wasn’t just shocking. It was the moment where I got hooked on this series, and knew from that point that — to use non-PG language — shit was fucked up and would only get more so. This isn’t Walt. This is Heisenberg, feeling out that new identity, and doing something that Walt would and could never do. Walt puts the plate together, realizes what it means, then slips into Heisenberg to survive. What a great way to set up the rest of the series (thus far), where Walt’s survival/what he believes best protects his family leads him into ever more desperate and dangerous territory becomes the driving theme.

A great clip, and wonderful acting by Bryan Cranston here.

*As always, all footage is the property of AMC, and has been embedded from media in the public domain; should that change or should AMC send me a written request to remove said footage, said footage would be removed immediately.*
