[WARNING: Mild Breaking Bad Season 4 Spoilers]

The ongoing stand-off between Walter, Jesse, and Gus will reach its breaking point in the Breaking Bad season 4 finale.

After Sunday’s shocking episode found the one-time partners in crystal meth cookery putting their disagreements behind them in order to kill the would-be drug kingpin, Gus is going to have to watch his back now more than ever.

After Walter’s (Bryan Cranston) failed attempt at killing Gus (Giancarlo Esposito) with an improvised car bomb, the pair soon realize that it’s not going to be easy to take down their former boss.

Fortunately, Walter and Jesse (Aaron Paul) aren’t going to have to go up against Gus on their own. Thanks to the ever-helping hand of Saul (Bob Odenkirk), the duo adds a surprise co-conspirator to help in their efforts.

You can watch a sneak peek at Sunday’s finale, in which Walter attempts to find Saul, below:

But is the help of Saul’s surprise confederate enough for Walter and Jesse to bring down the meticulous drug kingpin. And, more importantly, was Gus really behind the poisoning of Andrea’s son, Brock? Fear not, as all will be revealed – according to series creator Vince Gilligan.

Speaking about this Sunday’s finale, Gilligan says that it will be absolutely clear how Brock was poisoned – and who was behind it. Unfortunately, that’s all he’s willing to reveal about what’s in store for the highly-anticipated finale.

That being said, Gilligan did speak generally about what type of conclusion viewers can expect to see. Besides saying that he’s hoping everyone will be saying “Wow” as the season comes to an end, he does admit that the finale will probably leave fans wondering what next year’s final season of Breaking Bad will be about.

Of course, this sense of the unknown is hardly something that’s new to the series. Each season finale leaves fans saying “Wow” while wondering what exactly is going to happen next season – so this is Gilligan’s way of more-or-less saying that the finale will be amazing, as usual.


The Breaking Bad season 4 finale airs Sunday @10pm on AMC

  1. Breaking Bad is possibly the greatest show ever made.

    • Agreed.

  2. As great as seasons 1-3 were this season has topped them all. There have been at least 5 episodes this season that have had my stomach in knots. Unless next season completely drops the ball I will agree with the comments above this that say Breaking Bad is the best drama ever on TV.

  3. I politely disagree. As big of a fan of BB that I am, I found this season to be slow to come to a boil. Far too many artistic video effects and character “reflections”. For comparison, look at how the new episodes of Sons of Anarchy are being played out. The character depth is still there, but the narrative is moving at a perfect pace. I hope that the final season of BB keeps me glued to my chair the way that the first 3 seasons did…

    • Your kidding right? Last season was way slower paced, remember the fly episode? If they progress the story too quickly the show will become crap. I’m with kevin, this season is as good if not better than the previous 3.

    • I’m with everyone else on this, how the hell is this season not any better then 1-3?! Season 4 has been the best season by far, and has firmly planted this show as one of the greatest I’ve ever seen.

  4. Umm…it’s Vince Gilligan, not Gillian.

  5. ‘Fly’ was brilliant, Season 4 is as good as ever. Done.

  6. I too think that this season is the best by a long shot (not to say that the past three seasons were anything short of amazing).

    This show is simply phenomenal. I watched all of the episodes within 3 weeks- once an episode ended i just went to the other, ver, very addicting.

    While, I cant wait for the finale and personally I think that they will kill off Gus. How I see it is that next season will be about discovering who Walter White really and his continual battle (to his ultimate death) with cancer. I dont think that Gus will be involved with next season too much and I feel that Walter and Jesse will take over his business and become the big time drug dealers- until they get caught/die

  7. I’m positive Walter poisoned the kid. I can see him justifying doing it to get Jessie back on his side.

    Gus is calculating enough to do it yes…but why risk the relationship with Jessie over such a hail mary attempt to get him to kill Walt?

    The more I watch the more I like Gus. This show is seriously like reading a great book.

  8. The best show on tv. I can’t wait for the next season. I think Mike might be looking for some payback at Walter and Jesse, simply because he was a loyal employee to Gus, and because Walter was responsible for killing Gus. That puts Mike out of work now.
