The new issue of Entertainment Weekly highlights Breaking Bad in their “Winter TV Preview” section, revealing key plot details about the upcoming second season, which premieres March 8.
“Walt and Jesse upgrade their cooking process, pile up the fat stacks, and build their street cred,” creator Vince Gilligan told the magazine, hinting that their move upwards in the drug trade will draw “unpleasant attention” from other drug cartels and endanger the life of Walt’s DEA brother-in-law. As a result, Walt will get some legal advice from a Godfather-like consigliere, Saul Goodman (played by Mr. Show‘s Bob Odenkirk). “Saul hides behind that veneer of buffoonery,” Gilligan explained, “but he’s actually going to give Walt a lot of very sage advice.”
The preview also reveals an upcoming romantic interest for Jesse: A tattoo artist played by Gilmore Girls‘ Krysten Ritter.
Elsewhere in this week’s issue, Stephen King lists in his wishes and hopes for the new year that one of his “favorite returning cable series,” the “incomparable Breaking Bad,” will “kick ass.”
