Top Ten Moments from Breaking Bad

Breaking Bad is really one great big moment, but anyway here it goes.

*may contain spoilers*

The Top Ten

1 Hank's final moment (Ozymandias)

Hank's last exchanges with Walt and telling off Uncle Jack before he's killed, Hank really went out as the great man he was and Walt's paralleling reaction to Gustavo's in 'Hermanos' was truly powerful. The beginning of where Walt and his surroundings really crumbles. - DamnFineCupOfCoffee

A very emotional and big moment of the show.

2 Gus Fring's last scene (Face Off)

One of the greatest moments of television. - DamnFineCupOfCoffee+3
The most supposing greatest moment on T.V.

The most supposing greatest moment on T.V.


3 The remote-controled M60 machine gun wreaks havoc (Felina)

The final showdown that was built up from the first moment we saw the gun in the trunk was fulfilling and intense. Walt gets his final revenge on Jack and his gang and so does Jesse. And more... - DamnFineCupOfCoffee

The perfect ending, unexpected, shocking and satisfying. The Nazi's dropping like the pests they are as the bullets cut through them like a knife through butter. Jesse going ferrell on Todd after he killed a child, chained him up and shot Andrea infront of him. And finally, Walt shooting Jack in the head mid-sentence (like Jack did Hank), just staring down at him coldly while he pleads for his life. The muscial score is chilling, the intense music as Jesse starngles Todd and that electro-violin that kicks in as Walt picks up the gun. A true work of art, something that will be looked back on as a masterclass on how to end a story

Absolutely! I was in awe during the entire scene.

4 Walter White's death (Felina)
5 Walter's meltdown in the crawl space (Crawl Space)

A sinister feeling started creeping up on me the moment Walter burst out in that maniacal laugh followed by the brooding music, the phone call and then the camera slowly panning upwards and Walter is just staring in silence. What a scene! - DamnFineCupOfCoffee

This was the finest piece of acting I've ever seen in a T.V. show. The music, the acting, everything just done so perfectly.

6 Hank discovers the book (Gliding Over All)

That awkward moment when you realize that your brother-in-law is the meth cook/drug lord you've been searching for for the past year and half

The most important minute of the entire 5 seasons in my opinion

The moment when Hank realizes that Walt is actually Heisenberg. - DamnFineCupOfCoffee


7 The Cousins ambush Hank (One Minute)

The best one by far

Rest in peace car park guy

So many great details made this one of the best and most intense moments of the show. - DamnFineCupOfCoffee

8 The train heist (Dead Freight)

An extremely well made and suspenseful sequence, then we see Todd by the end of it, in a different light. - DamnFineCupOfCoffee

9 Walt's "I am the one who knocks" speech (Cornered)

Just Heisenberg letting his wife know what's up

10 The ricin being used successfully (Felina)

The numerous times the ricin was mentioned and failed to use to any advantage, I felt like it couldn't how gone any better than it did in the finale. It was just perfect. - DamnFineCupOfCoffee

The Contenders

11 "This is not meth" (Explosion)

Great moment but the episode is called Crazy Handful of nothing', not explosion.

Heisenburg's badassness at its finest

12 Walt runs down the dealers (Half Measures)
13 Jesse goes to shoot Gale (Full Measure)
14 The Standoff (To'hajiilee)
15 Walt discovers the plate piece missing (...And the Bag's in the River)
16 The exploding tortoise (Negro Y Azul)
17 Saul Goodman's introduction (Better Call Saul)
18 Gus kills the cartel (Salud)
19 Jesse escapes (Felina)
20 Mike's speech (Half Measures)

This was one of the big messages in the show, we see countless examples of half measures not ending well

21 Gus threatens Walt (Crawl Space)
22 Badger's arrest (Better Call Saul)
23 Roof pizza (Caballo Sin Nombre)
24 Watching Scarface (Hazard Pay)
25 Walt tells Jesse with satisfaction that he watched Jane die (Ozymandias)
