Best Breaking Bad Episodes

The Top Ten
1 Ozymandias

What a masterpiece. The acting, the emotions, the epic moments…it's everything you'll want in an episode. What's incredible is that it has a 10/10 rating on IMDb. So incredible, and a great plot twist.

I don't watch Breaking Bad, I just know that this episode is the only episode of a television show in TV history to get a perfect 10.0 ranking on IMDB, and I wanted to see if it was number 1 on here as well ad if so, how big of a lead it has over 2nd place.

This is, by far, the greatest episode we will ever see in the history of television. This is the episode where all the things Walt had ever done, all the lies he told finally crashed down on him. While this led to an incredible ending where the world's best liar stopped lying to himself, this was the ending of Breaking Bad. This was an extremely cruel and twisted episode, but it was appropriately cruel and twisted. What makes it satisfying at the same time is that we all know this had to happen. This series built up to Walt losing his entire family, and eventually having nothing left, leaving him to finally face the truth in the finale. While it broke our hearts to see Hank go, we all saw this coming. Hank had to die in order for Walt to see that his actions lead to this. Hank had to die in order for Walt to recieve the brutal consequences that he deserved. It satisfied and broke our hearts. It was merciless in its wrath. But that's what made it oh so powerful.

This was an absolute masterpiece. It's the best episode in the entire series, and it's the greatest episode in any show ever. The episode ties up loose ends that the whole series was building towards. It was cruel, but it was the way it had to go; Hank had to die. Walt had to give up Jesse. Walt had to lose his family. It's an awfully sad ending, but it's the consequences of Walt's actions. As Vince Gilligan put it," At the end of the day, Walter White has to reap what he has sown".

2 Face Off

The way Gus went out I was not expecting. This left me and shocking. One of and not if, the best Breaking Bad episode of all time. Bryan Cranston is one of the best actors of all time.

The very ending of this episode left me speechless. I am amazed of how Walt's character has changed from the beginning until now.

Totally awesome and unexpected. Very sorry to see this consummate actor go, but perfect exit for him.

Gus died like a boss, and this is where Walt turns into one mean dude

3 Crawl Space

The ending of that episode with Walt yelling and screaming like a maniac was so terrifying it just makes your hair turn white. Bryan Cranston is the greatest actor ever.

The rising tension is just unbearable, and the ending is metaphorically the death of Walter White, leaving just his Heisemberg persona behind.

That ending is just the single most terrifying and discomforting scene I've ever watched.

Things really started to kick off from this episode.

4 Felina

That final scene with Jesse Pinkman and Walter White really got to me.

Walter: (slides gun over to Jesse) "do it you want this."
Jesse: "no you say it! Say that you want this! "
Walter: "I want this"

Every time Jesse asked Walter to admit the truth like in this scene he had found a loop hole to avoid answering but when Walter knows that he is about to die know matter what happens, he is willing to admit the truth. This episode was so filled with heart and emotion to the best T.V. show of all time.

Such the perfect ending! Walter setting things right with Jesse. Perfect song to end also "I guess I got what I deserved" "the special love I had for you, my baby blue"

So sad when Walt turns back into the good guy right when it's too late, and we lose the greatest television character of all time.

A perfect ending to a perfect show, every loose end left is tied up masterfully. Beautiful telivision.

Out of any episode I've seen, this one certainly resonates the most. The scene where mike comes up behind the main cartel enforcer with razor wire is as terrifying as it is badass. You feel as though Jesse is a catalyst for the audience. He's as caught off guard as we are.

The cartel attack scene was amazing. I lovef to see Gus finally get his revenge. This is also probably the only episode where Jesse isn't acting like a brat.

One of the best episodes, in my opinion. Hits even harder if you've seen BCS.

I hate Gustavo, but my respect for him in this episode is infinite

6 Full Measures

Perfect ending to a perfect season.

7 Crazy Handful of Nothin'

This is not meth... Boom

8 Half Measures

Full of awesome moments. Unforgettable ending when Walter says, "run! " Also the ironic montage of wendy at the opening is a great way to start such a dark show. This shoulod be #1.

Never got so shocked by a TV show in my life as I got with this episode. Everything on it is just perfect.

Just a personal favorite.

9 To'hajiilee

When this amazing episode ends I counting hours for next one!

10 One Minute

One of the best action scenes in the entire series. "You have one minute."

The Contenders
11 Pilot
12 Fly

I like the fact how Jesse and Walt's relationship took a steamy twist in this episode, but that isn't to credit this episode alone, there had been that subtle buildup throughout the show. the actors' performances were mid though, needed more tongue.

This episode really gives characters room to self-reflect and delve into each other's repressed issues, something never really done to such degree in this or any other show.

Not as emotional as Ozymandias or Felina, or as shocking as Face Off or Crawl Space, but I just love the dialogue between Jessie and Walt, this is a great character driven episode.

The fact that they can make an entire show about killing a fly interesting really goes to show the talent of the writers.

13 4 Days Out
14 Granite State

Walt's little chat with Flyn was damn heart breaking. And the final seconds prepare you amazingly for Felina.

A brilliant piece of television, a perfect set up for the masterpiece that is felina

15 Confessions

Though it isn't my favourite it NEEDS to be higher. It has by far in my opinion the best cliffhanger and had me shocked and angry about the reveal of how Walt gave Brock the risen. It was just reveal after reveal and the speech Jesse gives when he's pointing the gun had Saul had me screaming. This needs to be in the top ten with Felina being number 1.

16 Phoenix
17 ABQ

Walter is a genocidal

I loved this episodes ties together all the cold scenes from season 2

18 Peekaboo

I cry every single time watching this episode.. The ending and the whole jesse's story with that little boy is so touching man...

This is the episode where people finally began to take Jesse seriously.

That "pull at the heartstrings" episode.

19 Gliding Over All
20 Grilled
21 Box Cutter
22 ...And the Bag's in the River

Scene in the basement... Top 10 scenes in the series history.

23 Hermanos

Most underrated episode from the show, jesus guys those last 10 minutes are just as intense as Ozymandias, really deserves the top 3

24 Say My Name

My second fave episode, great beginning and ending. You're damn right this one should be higher.

25 Dead Freight

The heist scene is one of the best in the show, if not the single best.

The turning point
