‘Breaking Bad’: Anna Gunn talks of end times and Skyler’s swim

With “Breaking Bad” returning Aug. 11 for the last half of its fifth season, Anna Gunn dropped by to talk about the show’s end and the first batch of episodes that ended last year. Gunn didn’t get into too many specifics about the future (others have plied her with alcohol for details, to no avail, she notes), but she did have fascinating things to say about the chess game her character, Skyler, played with husband Walt over the future and safety of their children.

Listen to the video above and learn about the specifics of filming Skyler’s memorable late-night swim, why Gunn won’t be drinking white grape juice any time soon and her thoughts on Skyler’s mind-set as we approach the show’s conclusion.
