Breaking Bad - Season 5 - Interview with Vince Gilligan about Season Premier

Thanks to Josh for the heads up.

Zap2it asked series creator Vince Gilligan about the flash-forward scene, and he explained his thinking in opening the season with the sequence and talked a little about when the show will circle back to it. (Short answer: Eventually.) But first, let's break down what happens in the scene (go here to read a full recap of the episode).

(It should go without saying that there are spoilers below, but for the record: There are spoilers below.)

Walt is apparently celebrating his 52nd birthday at a Denny's somewhere in California. The series began with Walt's 50th birthday, so it's now two years since we first met him -- and based on the events of the first four seasons, roughly a year ahead of the show's present day. (The waitress also calls him "Mr. Lambert.")

Walt looks very different than he does in the present (i.e., in the picture above): He has a full head of hair again, along with a full beard, he's looking pretty ragged in an oversize jacket and jeans, along with different glasses than he normally wears.

Things really get interesting when an unnamed character played by "Supernatural" and "Deadwood" veteran Jim Beaver walks in the restaurant. They meet in the bathroom, where they exchange a few words and what looks to be an envelope full of cash. "I got your word this won't wind up crossing the border?" Beaver's character asks. Walt replies, "It's never leaving town."

"It" turns out to be a really large gun Beaver's character has left in the trunk of an old Cadillac. Walt exits the restaurant, grabs a bag out of the trunk of a Volvo with New Hampshire plates, matching the state of his fake driver's license (New Hampshire's "Live Free or Die" motto gives the episode its title), and tosses the bag in the trunk with the gun.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.
