Well, I didn’t see a thread for this, and the first episode for the new season is due this Monday (April 10).
I was/am a huge Breaking Bad fan, and have fallen in love with this series. I do wish, however, that Gilligan and the other writers/producers would move things along at a slightly faster clip, or all the makeup artists in the world will not make the timeline believable. Plus, to be a bit morbid, some of the key characters are…getting up there in years.
That said, I’m super excited about the new season. I’m looking forward to seeing Jimmy’s further transmogrification, maybe Chuck’s irrevocable implosion, the introduction of a couple Breaking Bad baddies, and I expect to see why Kim eventually decides to let Jimmy stew in his own juices.
It’s been a very interesting ride so far. I very much enjoy the way that Jimmy’s relatively moral decisions actually push him towards a less moral overall way of life…I enjoy the way that Jimmy’s occupational successes push his brother further into neurosis, and Kim straddling the line as best she can.
Overall, however, I expect to see Jimmy evolve into primordial Saul this season. I can’t say, however, that I’m looking forward to that “last straw” that pushes him over the edge into debauchery. But I’m certainly curious to see what it is. My guess is that it will be some sort of Mexican standoff between him, Kim and Chuck, but I can’t guess what.
Looking forward to Monday night!
