Only eight episodes remain in all of 'Breaking Bad,' set to kick off its final run on Sunday, August 11 with any number of surprises in store for the endgame of Walter White and Jesse Pinkman. One finale surprise we hadn't expected however, that may prove a clue the ultimate 'Breaking Bad' end, acclaimed TV journalist Charlie Rose will put in an appearance for one of the final eight episodes.

The news comes to us from The Huffington Post, who caught a slip-up from the journalist at the Queens' Museum of the Moving Image exhibit "From Mr. Chips to Scarface: Walter White's Transformation in 'Breaking Bad.'" There, Rose mentioned he'd appear in the second to last episode of the series, while 'Breaking Bad' creator Vince Gilligan downplayed that Rose would necessarily play himself.

Interestingly enough however, Gilligan had previously joked to Vulture of which 'Breaking Bad' character would be best served by their own reality TV series, remarking "I'm not that up on my reality television. However, I'd love to see Wendy the Meth Whore on 'Charlie Rose.'" Might we take that to mean that the Heisenberg case eventually achieves national acclaim, and forces Walter White into hiding in the manner we've previously seen in flashforward?
