The first episode of season 5 2nd half was already aired (in the U.S) on August 11. In this episode, Walt tries to adjust to life outside of the “business” and meets with Jesse to hopefully talk through some of it. Hank grapples with a troubling lead that still requires real evidence to pursue further. In my opinion the series is just as explosive as ever. Was good to see the Walt and Hank confrontation so early on. this episode was also the sort-of premiere, so there’s not as much to analyse since we’re just being introduced to the current situation. As the season picks up pace there’ll be more to discuss. can’t wait for the next episode.
