Even two weeks later, the 'Breaking Bad' finale continues to resonate with fans and build a legacy for creator Vince Gilligan as one of the more visionary TV creators of our time. Gilligan's work is far from over, however, as a lengthy new profile with the 'Breaking Bad' showrunner reveals the true secrets behind Walter White's final stand, and offers revealing new insight into the proposed 'Better Call Saul' prequel spinoff.
'Breaking Bad' has finally cooked up its last batch of episodes (discounting the spinoff), and while many continue to argue about the purity of Walter White's last stand, most agree the Emmy-winning AMC drama stuck the landing better than most. We'd previously heard creator Vince Gilligan discuss several alternate endings as well, but it seems the writers also had in mind multiple trajectories for Walt's big gun, including a prison break for Jesse, and other endings that saw either Skyler or Walter Jr. bite the bullet!
And so, it has come to pass that 'Breaking Bad' aired its series finale "Felina," putting a conclusive cap on the tale of Walter White that wrapped things up in a surprisingly clean manner. Given the chaotic nature of the series however, creator Vince Gilligan, as well as stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul had plenty to say about the roads not traveled by the 'Breaking Bad' series finale, as well as insight into unexplained character moments, inspirations, and the likely futures of those left standing.
‘Breaking Bad’ season 5 cooks up its eighth and final episode of the season and series, “Felina,” as Walter returns to New Mexico to make things right with Skyler, Jesse, Elliott and Gretchen Schwartz, Lydia, Todd, Jack and his men, before finally ending the journey where it all began.
Last week’s ‘Breaking Bad’ episode, “Granite State,” saw Walter settling into his new isolated existence in New Hampshire, while Jesse’s desperate attempts to escape captivity had deadly consequences for Brock and Andrea, so how does “Felina” finally close out the series? Now that Walter has made his final stand, how does it all end for ‘Breaking Bad’?
Read on for your in-depth recap and review of everything you need to know about ‘Breaking Bad’ season 5 episode 16, series finale “Felina”!
'Breaking Bad' star Bryan Cranston already has his next gig lined up with a return to 'How I Met Your Mother,' while Aaron Paul tears up the cinematic roadways in the 'Need for Speed' movie, so what's series creator Vince Gilligan up to? How about producing a new detective drama for CBS titled 'Battle Creek,' recently given a straight-to-series order based on Gilligan's decade-old script?
Devastated though we may be that 'Breaking Bad' will soon come to a close, leaving our jaws on the desert floor with each subsequent episode, we didn't think the real nightmare would ever come to pass. Spinoff series 'Better Call Saul' has officially been greenlit at AMC as a prequel to the story of Walter White, and there doesn't seem to be enough blue stuff in the world to cope with the news.
For as much hype as 'Breaking Bad' will build for the final eight episodes premiering on August 11, it's looking more and more and more like Walter White's story won't be the last we see of the 'Breaking Bad' universe. Series creator Vince Gilligan's proposed spinoff with character Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) is reportedly moving "full speed ahead" at AMC, whether we want it to, or not.
Last year's 'Firefly' 10th anniversary Comic-Con reunion panel may have been the talk of the town, but this year X will really mark the spot. Legendary sci-fi series 'The X-Files' will hold its own 20th anniversary reunion panel at Comic-Con 2013, but who will show up to celebrate 'The X-Files' legacy? Will the truth really be out there?
It's hard to believe only eight episodes remain in the whole of 'Breaking Bad,' the first of which will premiere later this summer on August 11, and series creator Vince Gilligan certainly isn't short of story. Gilligan recently spoke out about the final eight episodes' "breakneck" speed, and what might prove to be a surprising victory for the New Mexican meth kingpin -- amid all the bloodshed, of course.
There's only eight episodes of 'Breaking Bad' left to go, and we're dying to know what's going to happen in the show's final hours, but yesterday's teaser and poster offered precious little insight into what will happen to Walter White and Jesse Pinkman. The show returns on August 11, but will 'Breaking Bad' deliver a conclusive ending, or leave viewers as conflicted as 'The Sopranos' did?
