AMC's Breaking Bad returns for its fifth and final season on Sunday, though the last season will be spread across two summers. Anna Gunn, who plays mother and leading woman Skyler White, discusses the cracks her character will display this season and the show's final evolution.
"I am amazed that this show is on the air – constantly amazed – because on paper this show shouldn't work," Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan told Kurt Andersen. It's no wonder he feels that way.
