With the return of the Emmy Award winning series Breaking Bad set to premiere this summer, AMC is giving fans a sample of the upcoming final season. AMC has already released the ill-omened “All Hail The King” official season 5 poster – now the network has put out a set of new promo shots that certainly make it seem that ol’ Walter White (Bryan Cranston) has finally given his evil alter ego Heisenberg control of the wheel.

The new images feature Walter and his young partner Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) ominously peering through shattered meth-blue colored glass. Smells like symbolism to me – possibly a shattered relationship? Maybe so, if Jesse finds out about a certain secret Walter has been keeping.

If that wasn’t enough to satisfy your Breaking Bad season 5 craving – AMC is also giving us a taste of the forthcoming season by releasing six new images of the first episode titled ‘Live Free or Die.’ AMC is still very tight-lipped on what we can expect from the fifth and final season, especially the ultimate fate of Walter White.

Last season saw Walter ascending through the drug king ranks and now it looks like Walter’s biggest enemy may just turn out to be himself. AMC has announced that the fifth season will be split into two parts beginning July 15th of this year and concluding with the remaining eight episodes next summer.

Here are photos of the first episode of season 5 “Live Free or Die” (click for larger version):

Your guess is as good as mine as to what they are really doing in that junkyard – but it should be noted that Mike (Jonathan Banks) is looking a lot less dead than we thought he would be after getting shot up in Mexico. As the eerily calm Mike has always described killing as ‘business’ and nothing personal, he may be looking to offer his services to the new meth king.

Breaking Bad season 5 premieres July 15th @ 10pm on AMC.
