After the shocking, dramatic death of Hank (Dean Norris) at the hands of soulless Todd’s ex-con uncle and his gang, it’s clear that “Breaking Bad” creator Vince Gilligan is pulling no punches when it comes to the last few episodes left in the series.
And sadly, it all comes to an end on Sept. 29, 2013, when fans will learn just who will live on in the “Breaking Bad” ether, and whose lives will come to a screeching halt.
Entertainment Weekly’s PopWatch decided to ask fellow staffers to predict what they believed would take place on the last “Breaking Bad” ever and got answers like the entire series was a dream because Walt was in a coma the whole time from Katie McMahon, to Grady Smith’s idea that Walt (Bryan Cranston) rescues Jesse (Aaron Paul), kills Todd (Jesse Plemons) and his rowdy cohorts, and then Jesse kills Walt and leaves the area with Brock. Then Huell, Saul’s formal bodyguard, leaves the motel he’s holed up in and heads to New Hampshire.
With the rollercoaster ride that’s been the last few episodes of “Breaking Bad,” these two predictions could actually be plausible, but only time will tell as the clock ticks down to the highly anticipated finale.
And for those who think Saul is totally going to live because Bob Odenkirk’s signed on to an AMC spinoff series, “Better Call Saul,” think again. Saul’s fate is also in question because the new show is reportedly a prequel and all took place before any encounter with Walter or Jesse.
The “Breaking Bad” series finale entitled “Felina” airs at 9/8c on AMC.
Immediately after the episode, AMC is airing a special one-hour episode of the final “Talking Bad” hosted by Chris Hardwick with guests Vince Gilligan and members of the “Breaking Bad” cast.
