“Breaking Bad” receives a poetic promo for the final episodes. Walter White is facing his final days as the clip teases his descent to darkness. The teaser features shots of a desert landscape while White is reciting Percy Bysshe Shelley’s “Ozymandias”, the title of the third to last episode. The famous sonnet tells of the inevitable decline of all leaders and of the empires they build.
Part of it reads:
“And on the pedestal these words appear: ‘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.”
The final eight episodes of “Breaking Bad” will start airing Sunday in the US, August 11 on AMC.
