Re: Breaking Bad Season 4 Premiere Sun 10pm AMC (Spoilers!)
Possible ending of Breaking Bad foreshadowing:
During his insider podcast, creator Vince Gilligan, placed significant importance on the name Lydia, as a clue toward the ending of S5. As an avid reader, and follower of history, the tale of Lydia came to mind. The land of Lydia is known in Greek Mythology for its two Kings, Midas and Croesus... the story of Croesus…
The story of King Croesus:
1. According to Herodotus he was the most powerful man of all antiquity
2. He becomes blinded by his power and his willingness for complete control, even after the advice of his elders and the wise man, Solon.
3. Shortly afterward, his beloved son dies in a freak accident
4. In response, his wife commits suicide, leading Croesus alone with his only daughter, he then falls into a state of rage and recklessness, declares all out war on his inferior enemy, and because of his ignorance, leads to his complete downfall. In the end he is allowed to live, but would have preferred death. ( the story is also explained by Tolstoy in his work, Croesus and Fate.
In addition, at the beginning of episode 5.1. Walt says he is staying in town to protect one person… In a recent interview, Hank foretells the significance of Holly and the threats against her life.
