Fans are anxiously awaiting the return of "Breaking Bad." Beginning in August, the final eight episodes of the AMC original series following the life of a chemistry teacher turned crystal meth king pin will come to an end. It's been an epic ride, and the reminder of season 5 will surely draw a phenomenal conclusion. AMC has kept the final episodes shrouded in secrecy, however, a new photo from the set offers fans a quick glimpse of what they can expect from the returning episode. It's not much, but it's something.

The photo features what appears to be a frantic Walt (Bryan Cranston) trying to convince his former sidekick Jesse (Aaron Paul) to help him. It's unclear what Walt needs from Jesse, but judging by the look on his face, it can't be good. Like most of Walt's wild endeavors, his proposal likely puts both of their lives on the line in a very unsavory fashion. It looks like "Breaking Bad" will be picking up right where it left off. Check out the photo below.
The second half of the fifth and final season of "Breaking Bad" will begin August 11, and creator Vince Gilligan promises that all unanswered questions will be addressed during the series' spectacular conclusion.
"Anyone anxious that there won't be resolution enough at the end of these eight episodes can rest assured that the story very much reaches resolution," Gilligan told The Daily Beast. "It will not end in any kind of open-ended sense."
Although Gilligan was wary to not give away any of the finale's secrets, he did describe the finale as "victorious."
"I'll say this much," he said. "I'm surprised by how victorious, in a certain sense, the ending feels to me." This could mean that the normally dark drama will end on a high note, leaving fans with a feeling of satisfaction and understanding, a rare and unique occurrence for "Breaking Bad" fans. Could this mean that Walt gets away Scott free? Could he leave his meth empire behind, rekindle his relationship with Skyler (Anna Gunn) and live happily ever after? That seems too good to be true, especially in the wake of his mass killing spree and his DEA agent brother-in-law, Hank (Dean Norris), hot on his tail. We'll just have to wait and see.
