Two years later and we're still not close to being over it.

For extra emotion we recommend hitting play before you start scrolling. We're sorry.

1. The look of utter confusion and despair in Gale's eyes.

2. When Walt and Walt Jr had a heart to heart.

3. When the scale of Walt's crimes finally dawned on Hank.


4. And he was left truly broken.

5. When we realised that even evil, murderous drug kingpins have been through heartbreak.

6. When Walt let Jane die.

7. Ruining Jesse's life in an instant.


8. And when Walt took joy in his actions.

By this point Walt had done almost every terrible thing you could imagine, but this was arguably his most malicious and cruel moment. Particularly considering that it was Jesse on the receiving end.

9. When Skyler realised who she was married to.

10. This scene, which, if we're honest, we're definitely not over.

11. When Hank and Marie thought the nightmare had ended.


12. Unaware that these would be their final words to each other.

13. When we realised what Todd was capable of.

We were all Jesse at this point.

14. When Mike died for nothing.

15. When Walt Jr said what we had been thinking for three seasons.


16. When Walt was, for once, powerless.

17. And Hank knew his time had come.

18. In this moment Walt's entire empire crumbled to nothing.

"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away."

19. The looks on the White family's faces as everything fell apart.


20. And even Skyler was surprised by Walt's actions.

21. When Marie's worst fears were realised.

22. When we saw how far Walt had fallen.

23. When Jesse was at his lowest point, and then this happened.


24. The last words Walt Jr ever said to his father.

25. When Walt was honest with Skyler, and himself, for the first time in years.

26. And Walt said goodbye to his children.

27. The look that said it all.

28. When Jesse realised what it meant to be free.

29. And, of course, when we said goodbye to Walt.

And also to what is arguably the greatest show ever to grace a television screen.
