    If anybody here doesn't already know, Ozymandias was the ancient Greek's name for Rameses II, the most likely candidate for the Pharoah of Egypt during the time of Moses and the Exodus (the Pharoah goes unnamed in the Bible). The king of Egypt who worshiped himself as a god, but ultimately every significant thing he did out of his own vanity turned to dust, much like Walter. His desire for power and his inflated ego blinded him to his relative insignificance.

    I don't think there has ever been more hype for an episode of television than the week before "Ozymandias" dropped, and this ad capitalized on it in the best possible way

    Anyone notice the change in intensity when Bryan Cranston switched from narrating the poem to quoting Ozymandias? It's as if Walter White is lamenting his sins while Heisenberg is raging against the dying of the light.

    In the end, nothing remains. Nothing you do will matter in the far future. The future. Our worst fear is yet our only path. We are given one instinct upon our advent to this world, and that is to survive. And we are left with one certainty, and that is we won't.
