"Breaking Bad" concluded last month, but we have analyzed the finale numerous times and of course watched it again and again. If you have not watched the finale then "Breaking Bad" spoiler alert for you (proceed with caution).
Actor Bryan Cranston, star of AMC's drama television series 'Breaking Bad', arrives for the premiere screening for the show's fourth season in Hollywood, California June 28, 2011.
At the Austin Film Festival, the Writers Guild Foundation showcased the screenplay for "Felina," "Breaking Bad" finale episode written by show creator Vince Gilligan. An enthusiastic fan was able to click photos of the script's last two pages which were later posted to Reddit. The images unleash new insight from the show creator on the final episode's shocking scenes.
Gilligan beautifully painted the scene of wounded Walt White taking his last steps in Todd's lab where Jesse had been cooking. "He's back with his True Love. Jesse left in the middle of a cook, so Walt continues it. He taps at gauges. He checks temperatures... He's at peace. The cook is going well. He taught Jesse well. All is as it should be."
In another scene, Gilligan wrote about Jesse Pinkman zooming away from the compound. In an interview with EW, Gilligan revealed that the romantic in him wanted him to get away with it and move to Alaska and lead a peaceful life with nature. In the leaked script, he writes, "From here on, it's up to us to say where he's headed. I like to call it 'something better,' and leave it at that."
Walt's final scene in the finale of "Breaking Bad" is poetic in every sense. "Walt's hand rests against it like a cowboy's hand rests on the neck of his horse."
Gilligan described Walt's expression during his final moments as "one of faint satisfaction."
But wait, Walter got away.
Gilligan's description of Walt's final scene as cops arrive at the scene - "They're too late. He got away."
"Breaking Bad" spinoff titled "Better Call Saul" is in the pipeline. It will see Bob Odenkirk as Saul Goodman.
