Breaking Bad, It's About To Get Real
Everything up until this point has been perfection. I cannot gush over this show anymore than I already do, save the point when I start writing fan fiction and drawing hearts around Aaron Paul's name on my notebooks. But I feel like, with just six episodes left, we are now getting smacked (literally) with the reality of the situation. It has all been fun and games, dangerous, deadly, criminal games, and there have been hardships for sure. But it all worked out somehow. Even the period of distress between Skyer and Walt, the way to solving it was clear cut; he needed to get out of the business and so he did and reparations were made. But now, the cat is out of the bag. The truth is so much scarier than any Gus Fring, Tuco Salamanca or "the Cousins." The truth is what Walt has been really fighting and now the battle is at his front door.
This is a fantastical show; how any of this could logically happen, I don't know. But facing the truth is a very real concept that we have all contended with, and when we've been evading it, truth and consequences for our action is frightening as all hell. This show just keeps getting better and better.
