Welcome to the Nerd Bastards SDCC 2012 Live Blog for the Breaking Bad panel. Our Dev Richards is in the FRONT ROW ready to deliver unto you as many details as we can about the legendary AMC drama’s fifth season. Keep checking back to see what Vince Gilligan and company have to say.
(6:50) Season five trailer has started.
(7:01) Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul walk out wearing yellow haz-mat suits, tossing FAKE meth into the audience. Wow.
(7:05) This is blue FAKE meth, I want to say that because it is very important.
(7:09) Vince Gilligan says Skylar’s character will grow darker this season.
(7:17) Gilligan just said the second episode will have scenes in Germany. Important because the other drug lords are German.
(7:22) Aaron Paul says this season is way creepier than the others.
(7:25) Cranston says that the premier is more intellectual than it is violent. And it’s funnier than you’d expect.
(7:29) Gilligan says the most important line will be Jessie saying “magnets, bitch”. Also we will see some characters returning: skinny Pete and badger. Skinny Pete will have a new aspect to him.
(7:30) We will see more Bob Odenkirk (Saul) this season (which makes sense, what with the rumored spin-off)
(7:33) When asked what subtle clues we will see in the first episode, Gilligan says no clues. It’s blatant. Not like the plane wreckage from season 2. Bam, in your face. It will also involve a household product. I’m betting salad shooter, but I could be mistaken.
Our live-blog got claimed by technical difficulty right as the fan questions started. To catch the rest of the panel check out Hitfix’s Live Blog here.
