Just a little something to get you more hyped for tonight’s Breaking Bad
Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan has been known to foreshadow events in the show through the titles of each episode. For example, the downing of the airplane at the end of season 2 was foreshadowed by the titles “Seven-thirty-seven,” “Down,” “Over” and “ABQ.” Tonight’s episode is entitled “Ozymandias,” from the rather awesome Shelley poem of the same name. Here are the closing verses:
“My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!”
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.
Considering where we left off last week, all I can say is “Holy Schnickes.” (Well, not really, because I’m not a 72 year old man from Queen but you get the idea.)
And of course there was this trailer earlier this year.
