‘Breaking Bad’ Final Season: Did Bryan Cranston Secretly Reveal Walter White’s Fate?
Less than two weeks away from the final premiere of ‘Breaking Bad,’ and so far AMC has kept new footage and spoilers to a minimum. We’ve seen some incredible teasers to be sure, but what of those eager to learn the fates of Walter White and his family in ‘Breaking Bad”s final eight hours? Series star Bryan Cranston recently put forth his own theory on the end, which hits both literally and figuratively close to home.
For as much as Walter White must meet his fate, from either cancer or a hailstorm of bullets, Cranston thinks Walt’s fate would be worse if his family suffered the consequences. Speaking at a recent New York Times press event, Cranston revealed his own dark thoughts on ‘Breaking Bad”s ultimate end, specifically whether or not Walter White would end up dead.
I think there’s a good case for that, that maybe that’s a fitful end. And yet what if the thing he wanted the most, which was the togetherness of his family — what if he lived and they didn’t? Wouldn’t that be a worse hell to be in? Or maybe he should die, I vacillate on this.
Harmless joke, or knowing omen? Meanwhile, among the recent photos and teasers of ‘Breaking Bad,’ executive producer Peter Gould ominously warned of the final episodes, “We wouldn’t have brought an M-60 into the show if we didn’t know we were going to have a hell of a finish.”
While we wait for new ‘Breaking Bad’ footage and the August 11 premiere, check out Cranston’s appearance with David Letterman yesterday, which goes behind the scenes of his Comic-Con 2013 Walter White cosplay! Do you think Walter’s family will be the ones to suffer in the end?
