The end is nigh for the one who knocks. New episode titles, summaries and pictures have been released in the run up to Breaking Bad’s final eight episodes.
The new series, premiering August 11th on AMC, will see the story of Walter White, a chemistry teacher-turned-meth lord, come to its dramatic conclusion with a finale that creator Vince Gilligan admitted made him cry.
The new pictures are a mix of screenshots and promo images; none of which are particularly spoilerific but one does, intriguingly, show a bearded, disheveled Jesse Pinkman alongside Walt’s brother-in-law Hank.
A bit more spoilery are the episode titles and summaries that have also been released for the series, which stars Bryan Cranston (Walt), Aaron Paul (Jesse), Dean Norris (Hank) and Anna Gunn (Skyler).
The final episode titles and summaries are below. They’re purposely vague but do not read if you’re not up to date or hoping to go into the final series knowing absolutely nothing.
