Topic: Why S05E09 and not S06E01?

Forgive my ignorance, but why was this called episode 9 of season 5 instead of just episode 1 of season 6?

Was there some kind of special reason that I dont know about?

Surely after such a long break it makes sense to start a new 'final' season?

Because it is still the fifth season order. AMC renewed BrBa two years ago for 16 episodes, 8 last year, 8 now.

Ok, so 8 episodes for season 5 and 8 episodes for season 6, that's 16 episodes, unless something is wrong with my math.

Still doesn't explain why they didn't just start season 6 and use S05E08 as the season finale. It's not like any of their seasons have been long in the first place. I just think it's weird numbering.  tongue

Only season 1 had 7 episodes. The rest had 13 each.
Season 5 has 16.

it's because they started off season 5 episode 1 with the flash forward of walts 52nd birthday at the Dennys and completing what they have started with that.  Also it'll probably make more sense with the DVD/Blu-ray box set sales later ;-)
