6. Walt’s First Kill
Walter White made a number of fateful decisions during his transformation into Heisenberg, with some particularly memorable kills playing a huge role in him going from mild mannered science teacher to drug kingpin. However, the first may have been the most significant, especially as it came so early in the first season and led to a very gory disposal process.
After listing the pros and cons of keeping Krazy-8 alive, Walt realised he had no other choice than to kill the drug dealer. After choking him to death, the science teacher crossed a line he would step over many more times. The fact that this was followed with Walt and Jesse using acid to get rid of the body showed that Breaking Bad wasn’t afraid to go to some dark places.
