Breaking Bad Spoilers – First Three Episodes, Lydia And A Photo
More details about the upcoming fifth season of Breaking Bad are coming in. Three weeks to the premiere AMC is releasing, almost on a daily basis now, new photos from the new episodes. Most of the photos don’t give much spoilers, but it’s always fun to see Walt and Jesse busy doing what they do best.
Besides the new photo of the meth chefs at work, the titles of the first three episodes are revealed: Live Free or Die, Madrigal and Hazard Pay. And actor Bryan Cranston says that the season 5 premiere, Live Free or Die, will make us laugh. “As violently surprising as the season-four premiere [Box Cutter] was, this premiere is nonviolent,” says Cranston. “The season-five opener is funny, intellectually curious and stimulating. It’s a really good episode to start us out.”
A non-violent premiere for Breaking Bad? It must be the still before the storm, as both Cranston and Aaron Paul mentioned that there will be quite a few people who will not survive this season. Paul even called it a “Blood Bath” in one of his tweets.
Both show stars also talked about the pre-title sequence of the first episode: “The teaser is so bizarre,” Cranston said. “It tells a lot — and it doesn’t tell anything.”
Here are the plot summaries for the first two episodes:
Episode 5×1, Live Free Or Die: Walt deals with the aftermath of the explosion; Hank tries to wrap up his investigation into Gus’ empire.
Episode 5×2, Madrigal: Walt and Jesse pursue an unlikely business partner; the DEA follows new leads.
And remember when I gave you the spoiler about the Lydia character and the German subplot on the new season of Breaking Bad? Now I can tell you that Lydia, played by the Scottish actress Laura Fraser, will make her debut on the show’s second episode this season (hence, “unlikely business partner” on the plot summary), and she will be an important character, as Vince Gilligan, the show’s creator, says: Lydia is “a former associate of Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito) who’s integral to the proceedings of season 5,” as well as someone who is “nervous about her place in the world.”

Lydia is not the only new character that joins the new season – there’s also Todd, and a bunch of other characters that serve as opposition to the new, temporary King Of Meth.
