The Brotherhood of Walter White's Abandoned Pants

Breaking Bad

Did you catch Walt rolling his money-filled tragedy-barrel past his old pair of pants from Breaking Bad’s first episode last night in between your bouts of panic-vomiting and clutching your throw pillows to your chest for comfort? We didn’t either, but Twitter did. Twitter catches everything. You could call it an Easter egg, but Heisenberg would kill that magic bunny and bury him in the shadow of a mesa if it so much as looked in the direction of his stash. He’s come too far for some buck-toothed rodent to mess with the security of his family’s future.
