If we didn’t know any better, we’d think that the opening of this clip from the “Breaking Bad” season finale was from some high-adrenaline action thriller.
Until, that is, you get to the part where Walter White (Bryan Cranston) is getting off the elevator at the hospital. But that’s part of what makes “Breaking Bad” so good — it can shift from action to sharply drawn drama to bleak comedy from scene to scene, or even within scenes.
So it is with this clip from Sunday’s (Oct. 9) episode, “Face Off.” It picks up where last week’s episode left off, with Walt scrambling to remove evidence of his plan to get rid of Gus (Giancarlo Esposito), then meeting up with Jesse (Aaron Paul) at the hospital. It doesn’t look like it will be a happy meeting.
