Watch this and have an A-1 day!

Holy moly - someone on social media linked to this and it's just so cool. It's the table read for Breaking Bad episode 509, "Blood Money". This is the episode where Hank has just discovered Heisenberg's true identity and they have their first confrontation as predator and prey, and we all know what that led to. It's also where we learn that Walt's cancer has returned.

It's really interesting to see what they had in the script that late in the game that didn't make it into the final cut. LOL at Peter Gould filling in as Badger, Bob Odenkirk in costume, and everyone laughing at Badger's Star Trek spec script. It's crazy how intense Aaron Paul is even during the table read - he's in full on-camera performance mode and brings Anna Gunn to tears. The absolute dread in the silence when Walt and Hank are facing off in the garage is hair-raising. And how great is Betsy Brandt as Lydia Rodarte-Quayle?

Enjoy, and have an A-1 day!
