While fans are seriously engrossed in the final episodes of "Breaking Bad;" they are also a little confused. The title of the latest, and shocking, episode was "Ozymandias," and it has left a number of people scratching their heads. Well, TIME took it upon themselves on Sept. 16, 2013, to explain exactly what the title of the episode means and how deep it truly is.
"Ozymandias" is actually a 200-year-old poem that was written by Percy Bysshe Shelley and based on Ramses the Great. The same Percy Bysshe that was married to Mary Shelley, author of "Frankenstein."
The poem "Ozymandias" tells the tale of a traveler who has seen an ancient monument in the desert. All that is left of the giant statue are the giant legs of a king, "Ozymandias, King of Kings." Civilization is nowhere to be found where the king once ruled.
There is an inscription on the pedestal that says the stone king once surveyed great enough works to force his enemies to have terror at all times. It states that the mighty one has fallen, and all that he has done in his life has fallen as well.
In turn, this could not spell good news for Walter White on "Breaking Bad."
Everyone that now understands what "Ozymandias" means has been led to believe that the only person who could possibly step into that role of the fallen leader is Walter White. Will this come to pass? Who created the statue of the great Ozymandias?
Only the remaining episodes of "Breaking Bad" will answer those questions.
