Are We Near the End of Times?
20 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the twelfth episode of the fourth season of Breaking Bad. I expected something along the lines of a swifter episode, but I'm happy for this episode because despite not much happening, the intensity goes through the roof. This is the kind of episode which I think will give us a big finale. The acting and the screenplay are magnificent, and I loved how they poked fun at Nazi Germany in this episode.

In this episode, "End Times," Skylar and the kids head to Hank's place to be placed under protective care. Walt stays home to protect his family from Gus's anger. Meanwhile, Jesse's girlfriend's son, Brock is poisoned and Jesse blames Walt. Walt is able to bring Jesse to his senses and together they devise a plan to bring Gus down.

Overall, this is a fantastic setup episode. I am eagerly awaiting the finale of the season. The episode goes by slow, but I feel like it's an important episode to explain what is about to come. I rate this episode 10/10.
