We should’ve known that Breaking Bad wasn’t going to be able to keep its dramatic ending a secret. It was only a matter of time, what with social media and all, before someone slipped up. And it looks like the guilty party is Aaron Paul.

Although he was nice enough to give fans a “Spoiler Alert” notice on his latest Instagram, even that was probably a bit of an understatement considering the photo he posted:

So it looks like Jesse and Walt finally made up by taking their love to another (perhaps unexpected) level, and we can only assume Skyler was there so that she would agree to keep quiet. How could she not after all that good lovin’, amirite?

Also, let’s analyze: Is Jesse unknowingly smoking the ricin cigarette? And does the fact that Walt’s smoking at all (um, hello lung cancer) mean that he’s given up? Scenario: Walt and Jesse give in to their passion and then both commit suicide knowing that life doesn’t get any better than that. Or perhaps Skyler lured them both into bed, and she walks away the mastermind? OR they’re smoking only to ensure that Skyler smokes some ricin? Wait, you can smoke ricin, right?

What do you think of this phenomenal Breaking Bad ending, PopWatchers? Is it everything you hoped for (but with more nudity)?
