'Breaking Bad' Creator Envisions Jesse's Future Post-Series Finale
With the end of "Breaking Bad", fans were also brought to the end of Walter White's journey. But there could be more to tell of Jesse Pinkman since he managed to escape from the white supremacist compound where he had been held captive.
In an interview with GQ after the series finale aired, series creator Vince Gilligan talked about what happened to Jesse after being a free man again. "My personal feeling is that he got away," he said, but then shared a worst-case scenario for Aaron Paul's character.
"But the most likely thing, as negative as this sounds, is that they're going to find this kid's fingerprints all over this lab and they're going to find him within a day or a week or a month. And he's still going to be on the hook for the murder of two federal agents," he elaborated, adding, "But yeah, even though that's the most likely outcome, the way I see it is that he got away and got to Alaska, changed his name, and had a new life. You want that for the kid. He deserves it."
Asked what Walter White would had done if he didn't accidentally catch that bullet, Gilligan left it to viewers' imagination. "Of all the things we discussed, I don't know that we ever talked it through. I know that in our minds, he definitely went there to kill Jesse along with everybody else," he said.
"If I had to guess, it was like, 'The cops aren't going to take me, no matter what. I'm probably going to get killed in the midst of this. I may have to shoot it out with any survivors,' or who knows what...," he added, "But, really...it's not. I mean, yes, it's mine. But it's also everyone else's, at this point."
Meanwhile, Bryan Cranston who played Walt recently said that his character's storyline could've stretched even further. "I'm kind of sad that we don't have another year to go, because I really thought that maybe we could do another 10 or 12 episodes," he said at the premiere of "No Half Measures", a documentary on the making of the show's final season, on Monday night, November 25.
Still, he thinks "it's better to be finished early and proud so that the fans and us say, 'I really miss that show' as opposed to saying, 'Is this show still on?' It's better to walk away at a high."
