Bryan Cranston hints at more Walter White
Better Call Saul might not be the only place where Breaking Bad folks could show up in the future. (Spoilers for the finale follow, although, like, you know what happened in the finale by now, right?)
Bryan Cranston implied on CNN Thursday night that Walter White may not have died at the end of the series, despite what the episode seemed to suggest. Wait, what?
Host/superfan Ashleigh Banfield put the point to Cranston: “Your eyes were open and I thought, ‘what if the police just take him into custody, he gets better, breaks out and just goes nuts?'” (The interview is not yet online.)
Cranston played along, noting: “Hey, you never saw bags zip up or anything.”
Banfield: “Is he dead?””
Cranston: “I don’t know.”
Banfield: “No movie? No nothing? No Walter White ever again?”
Cranston: “Never say never.”
Sure, Cranston was likely just humoring her. In the finale script’s last pages, there seems to be no uncertainty about White’s fate. But who knows? Watch the “Felina” ender below, then debate if there’s any way for White to rise again.
No further word from Cranston on Jesse’s fate post-end of episode, but that’s likely because we all know he got away and was able to live a productive, happy life. The end.
Walter White descends into the criminal underworld.
