VIDEO: See How the Prison Scene from the 'Breaking Bad' Finale Was Shot
Well, that's that. The first half of "Breaking Bad" season 5 is over, and now we begin the long wait until next year.
But if you're already feeling some withdrawal, here's some extra content from the mid-season finale episode to give you a little more "Breaking Bad."
First up is a behind-the-scenes video from the set while the crew was shooting that terrific prison sequence. As you saw in the episode, there were plenty of opportunities for special effects, what with all the shanking and the fire. If you're wondering exactly how they managed to set a guy on fire, they go over that in the video.
The video also confirms that the scene with Jesse's uncle and the cut-aways to Walt during the sequence were all very much an homage to "The Godfather." That's not too much of a surprise, as this season of "Breaking Bad" has been one big love letter to crime movies.
The second video is an "inside the episode" installment, featuring interviews with the cast and a quick recap of the major events of the finale. That includes a quick explanation from Vince Gilligan and Bryan Cranston of what exactly lead Walt to make his decision, and how the death of Mike affected him more than his other kills.
