First teaser for the new season just aired during the Mad Men finale tonight:
And the first three episode-titles of S5 have been released:
[SPOILER=Warning: Spoiler!]1: Live Free or Die
3: Hazard Pay[/SPOILER]
That second title sends shivers down my spine.
I seriously doubt Walt is in for any sort of redemption. I think as he solidifies himself as an evil bastard, the show will switch focus, and become about those around him (Jesse, Hank, Skyler, the Cartel, Mike, and maybe even Saul) trying to stop him. Whether or not they succeed, I think, will the true climax (and point) of the show.
What will Mike do now that Gus is gone? Mike seemed extremely loyal to Gus. Will he come after Walt, or is he now for hire? If he does come after Walt, my guess is Walt will somehow use his granddaughter to get to him.
(He'll recruit Badger and Skinny Pete to kidnap Mike's granddaughter in a hilarious "Baby's Day Out" scenario!)
