Storyline

Walt survives the gun battle in the desert but others do not. Jesse survives but Walt wants him dead and expects Todd's uncle Jack to go through with their deal. Something far worse is in store for Jesse and Walt takes the opportunity to tell him about Jane's death. Meanwhile Hank's wife Marie visits her sister Skyler at the car-wash to tell her Walt has been arrested. At Marie's insistence, Skyler tells Walt Jr. about his father's secret. By the time Skyler and Walt Jr. get home Walt is already there and wants them to pack and leave with him. He soon realizes it's all over and leaves, but takes baby Holly with him. With the police now involved, Walt makes one last phone call to Skyler. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

Series creator Vince Gilligan said in an interview that, "Ozymandias is the best episode we ever have had or ever will have." See more »

Goofs

Skyler refers Holly as an 18 month old baby to APD as Walt takes her away. She was born in Season 2 probably 6-7 months after Walt's cancer was detected (50th Birthday). He celebrates his 51st Birthday in Season 5 Episode 3 so it's mathematically not possible that Holly is 18th months old. See more »

Crazy Credits

When the opening credits begin after the first commercial break, the names of the first three actors appear in the normal sequence with normal timing. At the moment when the name Dean Norris would normally appear, the camera shows Walt looking at his own reflection in the rear view mirror. The name does not appear, and Walt turns the mirror to the side. The camera focuses in on the mirror's new reflection, an empty spot in the New Mexican desert. We then see Walt pause for several moments. Finally, as Walt begins to move on, the name Dean Norris appears on the screen. See more »

I feel sick
16 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

Like a crystal meth user, watching Breaking Bad gives me the same mix of both euphoria and a feeling of intense despair.

I watched this episode over 2 hours ago, and I still feel sick.

Heart rate: Up. Respiration: Up. Trembling: Intense Fear and anxiety: Immense. Desperately waiting and counting the hours until the next fix.

I am hooked. I am ruined. I am destroyed.

I am bad...

As I have journeyed through the series of Breaking Bad, I have nervously watched as Walt fought cancer, cooked his meth, evaded the establishment, built his wealth, lost his wealth, built it again, dispatched his foes and always prevailed. His loyalty to Jesse always seemed to prevail.

Like me, did you find yourself moving away from Walt, and heading towards Jesse, and perhaps even Hank? I think I even felt a pang for Skyler.

And now? I still feel sick
