"Breaking Bad" ended its five-season run last night with a phenomenal finale.

Before the series returned in August, we counted down some of the series most shocking moments.

Since then there have been plenty more anxiety-ridden moments to keep us on edge.

Now that we've said farewell to Walt, Jesse, and Albuquerque, we're counting down the most unexpected moments from the entire series. 

Don't confuse this list with the overall best moments from "Breaking Bad."

(There are plenty of fantastic monologues and montages that would make the list.)

Instead, these are the jaw-dropping moments you didn't see coming that made each hour-long episode worth viewing. 

Let's begin!

[MASSIVE SPOILER WARNING TO THOSE WHO HAVEN'T SEEN ALL FIVE SEASONS AND SUNDAY'S FINALE!]

30. Walt's first kill.

Season 1 | Episode 1 : “Pilot”

Not only do we find out in the pilot episode that a nerdy, meek chemistry teacher by the name of Walter White wants to start cooking meth, but in the same hour he winds up murdering one guy — and seriously injuring another — with mustard gas. 

He then devises a plan to get rid of the body with hydrofluoric acid! We didn't think the guy had it in him.



29. Walt goes berserk on Tuco's hang out.

Season 1 | Episode 6 : “Crazy Handful Of Nothin'”

After Walt sees Jesse battered and broken in a hospital bed at the hand of unstable, mental case Tuco Salamanca, he decides to pay him a visit.

We know the chem teacher has something up his sleeve, but no one expected him to blow the place up with highly explosive fulminated mercury.

Lesson learned: Don't mess with Walter White.



28. Learning that no one actually dies during the most anxiety-ridden knife fight between Skyler and Walt.

Season 5 | Episode 14 : "Ozymandias"

How was no one injured?? 



27. Walt's diabolical blackmail confession tape against his DEA brother-in-law.

Season 5 | Episode 11 : "Confessions"

Turn himself into the police? Please. That's so un-Heisenberg. Walt concocted a twisted tale about Hank being the mastermind behind the meth empire. White was just a victim of circumstance. 

The only thing better than the actual scene are the memes that have come from Hank and Marie being horrified Walt's "confession."



26. Hank turns the tables on his twin assassins.

Season 3 | Episode 7 : “One Minute”

After Hank receives a creepy warning call about two men out, we figure this is the end of the series run for the DEA agent.

Never count Hank out. Just when we think he's about to get axed (literally), he's able to get the best of his assassin.



25. Jesse kills Gale.

Season 3 | Episode 13 : “Full Measure”

We're equally rooting for and against Jesse. He's never killed a living soul before, but we know if he doesn't succeed in offing the chemist then Walt is going to be murdered.



24. Jesse's friend Combo gets murdered by an 11-year-old on a bike.

Season 2 | Episode 11 : “Mandela”

From the moment we see a young boy on a bicycle at the opening of the episode, interspersed with imagery of Jesse's pal, we get a feeling something bad's going to happen to the kid.

The tables are turned when the kid ends up gunning down Combo for being on rival gang turf. 



23. Walt lets Jesse's girlfriend die of a drug overdose.

Season 2 | Episode 12 : “Phoenix”

As Jessie would say, that's messed up, yo! Walt just watches Jessie's girl die right next to him on the bed. Watches her drown in her own vomit and leaves her there for Jessie to find in the morning. That is cold. 



22. Walt poisons Lydia with the ricin.

Season 5 | Episode 16: "Felina"

We've been waiting since season one, but Walt finally used the toxic drug unsuspectingly on Lydia. 

It's been teased for a long time that her artificial sweetener Stevia may receive an added kick.



21. Realizing Todd's using Jesse as his meth slave.

Season 5 | Episode 14 "Ozymandias" 

Just brutal. This is about as dark as this series gets — and all so Todd can (not) live out some weird fantasy life with meth lord Lydia. 



20. Walt's need-for-speed killing spree.

Season 3 | Episode 12 : “Half Measure”

When Jesse goes to exact revenge on the two men responsible for killing his friend — and a kid — we're worried something bad is going to happen him. During the 11th hour, Walt comes out of nowhere to save the day.

However, instead of swiping up Jesse, he goes to the extreme by running the men over and then gunning down the sole survivor.



19. Walt steals Holly!

Season 5 | Episode 14 "Ozymandias" 

After one of the most intense scenes, Walt abducts his daughter Holly in a panic after the rest of his family turns on him. Holly and Walt unfortunately do not go off on a life of crime together. Heisenberg doesn't do sidekicks. And he's far too dangerous to be around.



18. Two 737s collide over ABQ.

Season 2 | Episode 13 : "ABQ"

This was teased all of season 2 in black-and-white shots accompanied by bits and pieces of a creepy pink teddy bear. We were horrified to learn that Walt indirectly was connected to the crash. After all the man responsible for the crash was the father of Jesse's gf Walt let die.

Fans of the series would note that four of the episode titles over the course of the season would have hinted at the impending scene. Together, they spelled out "Seven Thirty-Seven Down Over ABQ."



17. The realization that Walt actually poisoned a child.

Season 4 | Episode 13 : “Face Off”

It seemed unthinkable, but Walt actually convinced Jesse that Gus poisoned a child when it turned out he was the mastermind all along.

The worst part is that Jesse has no knowledge of Walt's deception.

At San Diego Comic-Con, it was revealed during the “Breaking Bad” panel exactly how Walt pulled it off: a juice box.

16. The exploding head.

Season 2 | Episode 7 : “Negro y Azul”

It was enough that a turtle walked out into the open with a man's head on top of it.

However, no one expected that same head to explode nearly two minutes later, killing multiple drug enforcement administrative members and sending body parts flying.

Actor Aaron Paul thought the scene would never make it to air.

"You're going to cut a guy's head off, then blow up the tortoise?" Paul said to USA Today. "Come on. How do you expect to get away with that?"



15. Walt kills Mike ... for really no reason at all.

Season 5 | Episode 7 : “Say My Name”

It's probably the saddest death we've seen on the show yet.

With three minutes left in the episode, it looks like Mike's leaving town in a getaway car. That all changes when Walt unexpectedly shoots Mike in a fit of rage. 

Walt later apologizes, realizing he's made a mistake, but it's too late.



14. Walt dares Jesse to shoot him point blank.

Season 4 | Episode 12 : “End Times”

The only thing scarier than Jesse holding Walt at gunpoint threatening to shoot him is Walt egging on his former student, urging him to do it. He even grabs the gun and puts it square between his eyes.



13. Todd murders an innocent kid.

Season 5 | Episode 5 : “Dead Freight”

Vince Gilligan went there once and he unexpectedly went there again. 

After the great train heist, a boy on a dirt bike runs into Walt, Jesse, and Todd, exchanging waves with the three.

Before he can take off, Todd pulls out a gun and kills him in cold blood for the simple reason of "no witnesses."



12. Hank gets shot point blank by Todd's uncle Jack.

Season 5 | Episode 14 "Ozymandias" 

One of the many intense moments from this episode.  

We knew Hank was most likely going to bite the bullet — especially after his heartfelt moment with Marie the episode prior — but the way in which he died, was totally unexpected. His last words to Walt? 

"You're the smartest guy I ever met, and you're too stupid to see that these guy's minds were made up 10 minutes ago."

Truer words have never been spoken.



11. Jesse beats Saul to a pulp and covers Walt's house in gasoline.

Season 5 | Episode 11 : "Confessions" 

After discovering Walt lied to him last season and did poison Brock, he went on an all-out rampage against Saul before racing to White's house to douse it in gasoline.



10. Jesse is forced to watch his other love Andrea shot dead.

Season 5 Episode 15 | "Granite State"

Trying to escape from Todd and his uncles does not pay.



9. Walt gives Jesse over to Todd's uncles AND tells him he watched his girlfriend die.

Season 5 | Episode 14 "Ozymandias" 

What a one-two punch. We always wondered if "that asshole Mr. White" would ever tell Jesse he let Jane die — especially after the fly episode. But in the heat of the moment he holds Jesse responsible for Hank's death, so not only does he decide to give up his former partner, but to also kick him while he's down.



8. Walt threatens the lives of Gretchen and Elliott.

Season 5 | Episode 16: "Felina"

Wow. Heisenberg's really going all out hiring hit men to keep watch on his old business partners.

Wait, Walt doesn't really have two guns for hire tailing them? It's just Jesse's old pals Badger and Skinny Pete pointing lasers at them from afar?

This is Heisenberg at his best.




7. Jesse's "Star Wars"-inspired revenge on Todd

Season 5 | Episode 16: "Felina"

We were hoping that if anyone got to take out Todd it would be Jesse. 

However, we weren't expecting him to go Princess Leia and strangle Todd to death with the chains in which he was held captive.



6. Gus Fring's slice and dice.

Season 4 | Episode 1 : “Box Cutter”

After the death of his lab cook Gale, Gus get his hands bloody for the first time as he wordlessly takes a box cutter to henchman Victor in front of Jesse and Walt.

It's a split-second action that even the characters on screen react to in shock.



5. Gus poisoning himself to take out the entire Mexican cartel.

Season 4 | Episode 10 : "Salud"

The only thing more impressive than almost single-handedly taking out the entire crew with poison (Mike and Jesse helped, too), is taking the poison yourself to get the job done. Oh, and then racing against time to save your own skin. What a badass.

 



4. Hank figures out the drug kingpin he's been looking for since season 1 is his brother-in-law Walt.

Season 5 | Episode 8 : “Gliding Over All”

Just when we thought Walt could have his happy ending, Hank stumbles upon a book — in the bathroom of all places — that reveals his brother-in-law's secret double life as a meth cook.

Since the reveal, viewers were left wondering how Hank would deal with his discovery. He probably should have tread lightly.



3. The violent jailhouse slaughter of 10 men in an epic two-minute montage.

Season 5 | Episode 8 : “Gliding Over All”

Multiple stabbings, a bloody brawl, and a man lit on fire. The carefully planned mass murder to cover Walt's tracks is definitively one of the most mesmerizing and terrifyingly twisted moments of television. 

The entire scene takes place in one of creator Vince Gilligan's classic montage sequences.



2. Walt's Scarface-like machine gun rampage.

Season 5 | Episode 16: "Felina"

How do you get back at the men responsible for killing your brother-in-law, robbing you of about $70 million, and stealing your formula for the purest meth?  Take them all out single-handedly in a machine-gun rampage.

Virtually on his deathbed, Walt takes out Todd's Nazi uncles with a remote-activated M60.

Say hello to his little remote-controlled friend.

*Note: In case you weren't aware, creator Vince Gilligan has always compared Walt to Scarface.



1. Gus Fring's face reveal.

Season 4 | Episode 13 : “Face Off”

Even more shocking than Fring's death was the exact moment we saw the explosion that turned our favorite TV nemesis into one of our favorite Batman villains. 

The scene was actually terrifying as the eye muscles are still moving inside his empty eye socket!

Creator Vince Gilligan called the scene one of his favorite “Breaking Bad” moments while actor Giancarlo Esposito told MTV even he was shocked by it.

“You're held in suspense until the camera comes around and I turn a little bit and you realize, ‘Oh my gosh. He's not going to make it through this. He really has lost half of his face,’” said Esposito. “To me, that was the most shocking moment, in the way that it was done, in the way that suspense was held at bay and in the intimate moment.”
