Storyline

Walt is still trying to convince Hank - and to a lesser extent Marie - that they should do nothing and just let nature take its course. He's no longer involved in any criminal activity and will be dead in a few months from his cancer. They're not very receptive to his ideas but when they get home they find that Walt has recorded a video confession admitting to everything - and naming Hank as the mastermind behind it all. Jesse meanwhile has been released from jail. He said nothing to the police or Hank about his business with Walt but seems completely lost. In a difficult meeting with Walt, he agrees to acquire a new identity and start a life in Alaska. As he awaits Saul's contact who will provide him with what he needs, he comes to the realization that it was Walt who tried to kill Brock. Written by garykmcd

Making Confessions!
23 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the eleventh episode of the fifth season of Breaking Bad. If anything can be described as jaw-dropping, it's this wonderful episode. Many things occur in this episode, and all of them will hold your attention. The acting remains excellent, especially as Aaron Paul becomes a "regular" once more and Bob Odenkirk as Saul has his moments in the desert. Dean Norris and Bryan Cranston also deliver top-notch performances.

In this episode, "Confessions," Walt tries to convince Hank and Marie to leave his family alone and allow the cancer to do the work. After they refuse, Walt gives them a DVD essentially blackmailing them. Todd has taken over the business. Walt convinces Jesse to begin a new life in Alaska, but Jesse realizes a hurtful truth about Walt.

Overall, this is a fantastic, jaw-dropping episode. Trying to compute the happenings of this episode may create a mind explosion. That is how great this episode is. The cliffhanger is amazing and it means there is going to be some serious things happening in the final five episodes.

My Grade: A+
