As if we could ever forget Walter White's name...
A new teaser poster for the final eight episodes of AMC's epic meth drama "Breaking Bad" has hit the internet, offering some kind of clue as to what lies ahead when the series enters its final stretch in August.
The poster features series star Bryan Cranston with his fists clenched, and the slogan "Remember My Name" plastered over him.
Setting aside the question of which name we're being implored to recall -- Walter White, or his alter-ego Heisenberg? -- the poster could be a call-back to the first half of the fifth season, when White's DEA-agent brother-in-law Hank appeared to be putting together the mystery of White's secret identity as a meth dealer. As fans will no doubt recall, Hank appeared to have a "eureka" moment when he discovered a copy of Walt Whitman's "Leaves of Grass" that White's former meth-cooking assistant Gale Boetticher had given to him, with an inscription made out to "W.W."
Or, it could just be a shout-out to the theme song from the 1980 big-screen classic "Fame." It's hard to tell what kind of twists the series will take in its final episodes.
