Breaking Bad's 8 Most Bitchin' and Bold Twists!

Breaking Bad Plot TwistsFiery graves and poisonous plants and gunshots gone awry are just a few of the things that make AMC’s Breaking Bad (which kicks off its final run this Sunday at 9/8c) the most deliciously dark, addictively twisted series on TV today.

They’re also a major reason why we’ll miss following the saga of Walter White and his sidekick Jesse Pinkman when their meth-fueled misadventures come to an (inevitably) tragic end in just eight short weeks.

As such, we’ve compiled a tight collection (with the caveat that the options for this one are endless) of Bad‘s eight most bitchin’ twists from the past five seasons. (We’re pretty sure Jesse would approve of the title.)

From moments that defined the series to those that broke our hearts and crushed the characters, our picks  take fans down a pretty devastating — but enjoyable! — memory lane.

  • Number 3 broke my heart! It took me 2 days to recover from it.. Tour de force of acting by Aaron Paul!

  • This is a good list. I also think of Gus using poisoned tequila to take out most of the cartel in Mexico, and the crazily choreographed jail killings that Walt orchestrated. There are so many startling set pieces on this show!

    • That was heart breaking & I really felt for Gus after seeing his backstory

  • I’ll never forget the S2 finale with poor Jesse in rehab crying in Walt’s arms screaming how much he loved Jane and she loved him. I cried for days.

    • Yeah but that’s not exactly a twist.

  • Jeez, there are so many. I guess Jesse killing Gale is my #1 with Gus’ killing and Hank’s toilet revelation close behind. Although it’s not a twist, Jesse’s “Dead Dog” scene is one that still haunts me more than any other.

  • I was so happy when Walt let Jane die. I was actually telling him through the TV, “DON’T SAVE HER! DON’T SAVE HER!” because I really hated her character.

    • Haha, me too! Although, Aaron Paul did some of his best work after her death.

      • Agreed, though the actress was good and I just didn’t like her character, but Jesse’s transformation after her death was fantastic!

  • My favorite was Jesse killing Gale, I didn’t like Gus’ death only because him walking out of the room was a bit much

  • Best moment is when Jesse and Walt ran train on Taa

  • Killing No. 6 was so horrible and haunting, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to watch the show again. (But yeah, I’ll check out the last season, to see how things end.)

  • Not only did Walt let Jane die, but he’s the one who knocked her into that vulnerable position when he was trying to wake Jesse. She was on her side before Walt accidentally rolled her onto her back.
    Still so many things for Jesse to discover about Walt.

  • This is bar none the absolute best program to ever grace the television screen. It will be sorely missed. I can’t wait to see how it all ends!
