Vince Gilligan on 'Breaking Bad' season five:
“You can look forward to even more crazy sh*t! We’re definitely going to see Walt winning more, and the question of season five is what does it take to stay at the top? I think at the end of season 4, we see that Walt has won. He explicitly says so. What that means is that he defeated Gustavo Fring in this season-long existential chess match that they were playing. Now that they have won and he is ascendance, what does that mean for his life? What does it mean for him and his family? Now that Walt is the king, what will he do with that power and will it be as easy to maintain that control as it was to wrestle it out of Gus Fring’s hands in the first place?"
Bryan Cranston (Walter White) on 'Breaking Bad' season five:
“You will sh*t, uncontrollably, watching this new season. Walt gets a bevy of hookers, he goes crazy! [Laughs] No, with Gus gonenow, Walt is more in control this season and we get to see Skyler becoming more of his equal. Also, characters from earlier in the series may be popping inagain – like Jesse’s friends Skinny Pete and Badger. Anything can happen now, and will.”
Aaron Paul (Jesse Pinkman) on 'Breaking Bad' season five:
“You never know anyone’s fate on this show… but we know it’s not going to end pretty. The countdown is on. It’s a bloodbath, I’ll tell you that. It’s brutal. Each season, Vince keeps pushing the envelope with darker and darker stories. But we’re not being dark for the sake of being dark. We’re trying to tell an honest story. And all these actions have circumstances the characters have to deal with. It gets very heavy andvery dirty this season, like nothing we’ve seen before.”
Betsy Brandt (Marie Schrader) on 'Breaking Bad' season five:
“Last season was all about Marie taking care of Hank after the shooting. This season it’s about more caretaking; more about the family. She’s more defined. We see the best side of her because if she’s not taking care of someone, she’s just thinking about herself. Now she’s kind of the stable one! There is also a streak of melancholy about the children of her own she doesn’t have.”
