Breaking Bad’s Famous Garage Scene Made Even More Tense

Breaking Bad

When Breaking Bad returned last fall for its final episodes, the midseason premiere ended with an intense confrontation between Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and his brother-in-law Hank Schrader (Dean Norris), which culminated in Walt’s instant-classic “tread lightly” line.

At a tense moment in the scene, Hank grabs a remote and closes the garage door—and that move gave YouTuber Frank Fenimore other ideas about how the stand-off could have gone down.
