The endgame begins with ‘Blood Money’

Andy Greenwald nails the big confrontation that ended Breaking Bad’s latest episode (Spoilers ahead):

Forget the delicate dance of cat and mouse a generation of TV built on coy delay had prepped us to expect. Here, the cat punched the mouse in the nose and called him a monster. The mouse then stood up, casually brushed himself off, and transformed into Satan. It’s awfully rare to see television so unafraid of delivering on what it has promised. And it’s quite possible that no show has ever promised more than Breaking Bad.
