'Breaking Bad' At Comic-Con: Walt Reaches The Point Of No Return And More Deaths In Season 5

"Breaking Bad" panel at Comic-Con: Stars talk Season 5

"Breaking Bad" kicks off its final season this Sunday (July 15, 10 p.m. ET on AMC), and creator Vince Gilligan and stars Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Dean Norris, Anna Gunn and RJ Mitte were on hand at Comic-Con to tease the show's big ending.

But first, there were costumes -- it is Comic-Con, after all! Cranston and Paul came out in hazmat suits, holding a fake baby, while Norris had on a long wig and a cape, bearing his midriff. There were standing ovations all around.

Check out this pictures for proof:

Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul just came out dressed in their meth lab outfits and I am dead.

Gilligan was very honest about what goes into making "Breaking Bad" so great: "It's a lot blood, sweat and tears. And six great writers."

But have we seen Walt (Cranston) at his worst? "He may get worse, yet," Gilligan said, later adding that this season is all about winning and what it means to stay on top. "Walter has found a new power, and it’s his ego," Cranston said.

That doesn't bode well for his relationships, something Gunn echoed when talking about Skyler (Anna Gunn). "She wants to protect her family, and if that's at the cost of her relationship with Walt, then that's what she's going to do."

"This entire season is just creepy. Unsettling," Paul said.

Part of the unsettling factor? Delving into the aftermath of Gus Fring being gone and the German company that bankrolled him. Madrigal, Gus' bankroll, will be playing a big part this season of "Breaking Bad," and there will be a lot of German subtitles according to Gilligan. Lydia (Laura Fraser), a former associate of Gus, will also play a role this season.

Another new face? Jesse Plemons' new character, Todd, is "incredibly important," according to Gilligan.

"The most revealing teaser 'Breaking Bad' has ever shown," Cranston said, via Hitfix. Gilligan added that there's a shout-out to the pilot in the opening scene that contextualizes things.

What could it be? Here's a hint:

A certain household product that also appears in the very first episode will be a huge player in the new season.

As for the increasingly awful Walt, Gilligan says "Breaking Bad" Season 5 is the point of no return.

Walt does something this season that made Vince Gilligan realize he'd lost all sympathy for Walt.

So expect even more tension:

Cranston says that Season 5 has more tension and stress than ever. Which for Breaking Bad... damn!

Paul previously told GQ that there are even more deaths in "Breaking Bad" Season 5. But could one of those deaths be the main character? Cranston made this comment at Comic-Con:

Bryan on the end: "Perhaps the happy ending would be that he died."

Tune in to see how it all goes down when "Breaking Bad" returns with the first part of its fifth and final season on Sunday, July 15 at 10 p.m. ET on AMC.
