The clip takes place right after the July 15 premiere’s cold open segment (a scene that’s going to have more fans speculating about Mr. White’s future than anything we’ve seen since season 2’s infamous opener with the torched toy in the pool). Since we’ve only seen a trailer with a few seconds of fleeting new footage so far, this clip should be quite a treat for Breaking Bad fans.
