To at the present time, I nonetheless can’t get Gus’s scream out of my head simply earlier than the bomb goes off. There’s additionally that scrumptious reveal whenever you see half of Gus’s face, solely to see the digicam transfer and also you witness the total horror. Yowza!
9. Hank’s Loss of life – Season 5, “Ozymandias”
Hank and his companion, Gomez, are concerned in a shootout with some white supremacists. Gomez buys the farm, and Hank will get his subsequent. In the meantime, Walt is pressured to look at his brother-in-law die.
This scene nonetheless sticks with me as a result of Hank’s loss of life was teased within the earlier episode, “To’hajiilee”, however there was no method they had been going to kill off Hank. No method in Hell. After which, they kill off Hank. Even after 5 seasons of homicide, Hank’s loss of life was nonetheless surprising, and made even worse by Walt’s responsible face, since he knew it was all his fault.
8. Jesse Kills Gale, Season 3, “Full Measure”
Walt is nervous that Gus will kill him as soon as Gale learns to cook dinner meth similar to him. So he decides to kill Gale. However after circumstances involving Victor and Mike get in the best way, he tells Jesse that he has to do the deed himself. Jesse goes to Gale’s home and tearfully shoots him.
This second sticks with me as a result of it completely broke Jesse. Like Jesse stated, he wasn’t a assassin, and he was pressured to kill Gale, who was additionally fully harmless. Nicely, in addition to the entire cooking meth factor, however nonetheless! Apart from that, Gale was innocent. He didn’t need to die.
7. Leonel Drags Himself on the Ground With Severed Limbs – Season 3, “I See You”
Leonel and Marco Salamanca (higher referred to as “the Cousins”) go after Hank on Gus’s command, however Gus warns Hank prematurely, giving him the benefit. Marco dies, however Loenel will get crippled. As soon as within the hospital, Loenel sees Walt, who he was initially despatched to kill, and crawls away from bed with amputated legs, dragging blood throughout the ground.
This was a visually surprising second. Seeing Walt’s troubled face was disturbing sufficient however watching Loenel dragging his bloody stumps throughout the ground nonetheless offers me chills.
6. Walt Poisons Brock – Season 4, “Finish Occasions”
Walt nervously spins a gun in his again yard, ruminating on what to do about Gus. The gun ultimately factors to a plant. In the meantime, Jesse is satisfied that Andrea’s son, Brock, is poisoned by a ricen cigarette. However we discover out that Walt really poisoned Brock with a Lily of the Valley plant.
By this level, Walt was already a scoundrel, however to assume that he would poison a toddler simply to maintain Jesse near him was unfathomable. Even Scarface doesn’t harm youngsters!
5. Gus Slits Victor’s Throat – Season 4, “Field Cutter”
Following Gale’s loss of life, Gus needs to ship a message to Walt and Jesse that he’s not messing round. So he slits his assistant, Victor’s, throat proper in entrance of them, stone-faced.
I knew Gus was hardcore, however I didn’t know he was this hardcore. Watching Victor, who tried to show his price by cooking meth himself, die at his impassive boss’s hand, proved simply what sort of sociopath Gus actually was.
4. Walt Berates Skylar Over the Telephone – Season 5, “Ozymandias”
In a match of insanity (or crafty) Walt kidnaps his daughter, Holly, after his spouse tries to stab him and his son calls the police. He later calls her and berates her over the cellphone, however solely as a result of he’s conscious that his cellphone is tapped and he needs to guarantee that she isn’t implicated in his crimes.
This scene is an emotional intestine punch. Holly says her first phrase (“Mama”), and watching Walt cry, even after every part he’s finished, hits me proper within the feels. Plus, it’s disturbing to look at 5 seasons price of misdeeds lastly crashing down on Walt in a single episode.
3. Tortuga’s Head Rides a Actual Tortuga – Season 2, “Negro y Azul”
Tortuga (performed by Danny Trejo) is a cartel member turned informant. And for some cause, the cartel isn’t completely satisfied about this. In order that they decapitate him, strap his head to an actual tortuga, and plant a bomb to the turtle. Hank is fortunate to make it out of this encounter alive.
Decapitation all the time sickens me, so seeing the happy-go-lucky Tortuga meet such a grisly demise nonetheless startles me. Plus, seeing a transferring head (only a head!) by means of binoculars offers me the creeps! And to assume that this scene began out as a joke within the writers’ room!
2. Todd Shoots a Baby – Season 5, “Useless Freight”
After efficiently robbing a prepare stuffed with methylamine, Walt, Jesse, and Todd are able to rejoice. However then a child on a dust bike who seemingly witnessed the entire thing, waves, and Todd waves again. After which, he shoots the child in chilly blood.
I generally surprise who was the larger sociopath on Breaking Bad—Gus, or Todd? I typically haven’t any qualms with seeing adults get murdered in TV reveals and flicks. However youngsters? No. Children, I simply can’t abdomen. So seeing Todd mercilessly kill a toddler with no regret disturbed me on an emotional degree. The present was now not enjoyable for me. Compelling, sure. However not enjoyable.
1. Walt Watches Jane Die – Season 2, “Phoenix”
Walt thinks that Jane is unhealthy for Jesse since they’re each heroin addicts. Plus, she’s blackmailing him in order that Jesse will get the cash that he earned.

When he tries to wake Jesse, he knocks Jane over and she or he begins to choke on her personal vomit. Somewhat than attempting to assist her, Walt watches her die.
This was the second that I started to surprise, “Wait. Is Walt the unhealthy man of this present?” I additionally bear in mind screaming, “Do one thing!” at my tv as Jane began choking. I used to be disturbed the entire night time after this episode, and it each made me respect the present extra, but it surely additionally sickened me that I had rooted for this man at one level. After seeing this episode, I believed, nope. No extra.
And that’s the checklist. What do you assume is probably the most disturbing second of Breaking Bad? Pontificate within the feedback.
