“Breaking Bad” is coming to a close, but the next few episodes will offer up some jaw dropping character plots leading to one grand finale. While folks wonder how this show is going to end, a few theories on that subject have recently popped up and they make sense.
According to Digital Spy on Sept. 13, the theory of Marie showing the DEA Walt’s confession tape is just one bizarre possibility. Another theory suggests that Skyler and Lydia have a face-off. Some “Breaking Bad" fans think that Walt and Jesse will be forced back together to cook. This goes along with the theory that Walt’s guilt will become so overwhelming that he can’t think straight; setting himself up for the final fall.
On theory in particular holds a lot of water because of Walt’s past habits. The theory that Walt kills Skyler isn’t too far-fetched. When Walt kills someone, fans see him engage in the same behavior that the person he killed did right before he died. After one of Walt’s kills, you see him taking the crust off the bread when making a sandwich, just like the guy he just killed did.
In the flash-forward offered up a while back that gives you a peek into the ending of the show, Walt is sitting in a dinner with a full head of hair. He is arranging his breakfast plate so the bacon forms the number of his age, just like Skyler used to do for him on his birthday. She would make the number of his age with bacon strips on top of his breakfast.
This suggests he killed Skyler. While the show can end in a thousand and one ways, Walt killing his wife, the mother of his kids, would be the ultimate behavior that he would have to justify. That is what he’s been doing all along, justifying all his illegal behaviors. Will it be Skyler’s death he justifies in the end?
There's one person Walt can't kill off and that's Saul Goodman, his lawyer. With Saul getting a spinoff titled "Better Call Saul," he has to stay alive, but he could always go into the witness protection program and start fresh as a crooked lawyer elsewhere!
