One marvellous margherita!

Do you need help getting over Breaking Bad?

Breaking Bad

WARNING: POTENTIAL SPOILER AHEAD!

So, Breaking Bad… wow, that was intense.
By now, you should have all watched the very last episode, the season 5 finale… and boy, what a way to go.

We’re all in the same boat right now, not quite sure what to do with ourselves and feeling a bit numb but we think the light at the end of tunnel will return… eventually.
