AMC has released a new (and very dark) trailer for the final season of their hit show Breaking Bad. In it, Walter White (Bryan Cranston) ominously reads “Ozymandias,” the classic short poem by Percy Bysshe Shelley that describes the “inevitable decline of leaders.” The final eight episodes of Breaking Bad premiere starting Sunday, August 11, 2013 at 9/8c.
“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.
