A recently released "Breaking Bad" Season 5 Part 2 trailer reveals insight into what fans can expect in sixth and final season of the show. The AMC-hit drama will be taking an ominous tone for sure, given that Walter White (Bryan Cranston) is reciting the Percy Bysshe Shelley poem "Ozymandias" from 1818. The Season 5 part 2 premiere of "Breaking Bad" will air Sunday 9/8C on August 11, 2013 on AMC. The series finale will air on Sep. 29, 2013.
If you, like us, cannot wait for the "Breaking Bad" Season 5 Part 2 premiere, then read on to learn about six things season 6 will bring:
1. Walter reciting the poem by Shelley may seem unrelated, but if anything, it is incredibly symbolic. In the poem, Shelley is thinking about the inevitable decline of leaders and their empires. Does this foreshadow to the downfall of international drug cartels? Most likely.
2. Hank (Dean Norris) will be dealing with the truth about Walt and there will be a showdown.
"In many ways, fans knew this moment was coming for a long time. It's been right under Hank's nose for a while now, and subconsciously he was probably picking up the signs even if they were not registering in his brain," The Hollywood Reporter said. "Who knows if the final eight episodes will be one heavyweight championship fight after another between Walt and Hank, but we all knew it was coming, and when there's no longer any point for either man to deny the obvious, look the hell out."
"There's going to be a big Walt-Hank showdown," a show creator revealed. "Obviously now that Hank is on to it, he needs to deal with that situation. It's like a freight train, man."
3. There will be eight total episodes and the first episode, according to the New York Daily News, foreshadows the other seven, much of that drama will be psychological." In fact, the final eight episodes will reportedly "zoom right in on the core characters, the ones we've followed on Walt's march toward purgatory."
4. The ending is, according to Cranston, appropriate.
"It really is. You watch this -- there's no apologies," said Cranston. "[Creator] Vince [Gilligan] was able to write to the ending that he wanted, and we're very pleased with that."
"It is an amazing ending. It is an amazing, amazing play-out," added RJ Mitte, who plays Walt Jr. "... I really want people to see it and have the same reaction that I had."
5. There will be deaths.
"As the movie title goes, there will be blood," said series creator/executive producer Vince Gilligan. "To my mind, that's not the most interesting thing. It's the emotional moments and the character moments. ... We've got some stuff that I think is going to be truly satisfying and truly shocking and jarring. It does not always center on moments of violence." And these moments will come flying at you at "breakneck speed," he warns: "I have surprised myself at how much story there was left to tell and how quickly we tell it. You need to really settle down on the couch and pay close attention because it's going to come at you fast and furious in the final eight episodes."
6. Digital Spy has released episode descriptions of the final seven episodes:
