Breaking Bad “Say My Name” A Turning Point In The Series
SPOILER ALERT! This last Sunday nights episode “Say My Name” of AMC’s popular show Breaking Bad was a definite turning point for me. As a viewer who has seen every episode, I’ve always been pulling for Walter White and Jesse. I wanted to see them make money, I wanted to see them be successful and not get caught. After the last episode, I hope Hank catches Walter White and he ends up crying in a jail cell.Or maybe better off dead, that way Jesse might have a chance to get out of this alive. Hats off to the creator Vince Gilligan and the rest of the staff. I’ve never had such an emotional roller coaster ride in a series as Breaking Bad. Throughout every point of the series, I have found myself disliking and loving every character. And it’s so seamless the transition.
I remember when Skyler started cheating on Walt, man was I pissed! Now I feel so bad for Skyler, and hate Walt. Jesse was just a punk loser at the beginning and now he is the only moral compass left. Mike was going to off the guys and was enemy #1, and he eventually became my favorite character.
That’s where the turning point was for me. When Walter in anger shot and killed Mike. That was when I just gave up on Walt and hoped Mike would have been able to get a shot off. I was worried this entire time of watching Breaking Bad that how was I going to handle the eventual demise of Walt. Now I’m looking forward to it. I think that’s what Vince Gilligan and the staff at Breaking Bad were striving for – bring the audience together and enjoy watching Walter get whats coming to him.
One thing is clear: They have done a great job at turning a mild mannered school teacher into a monstrous drug villian.
