I loved watching Breaking Bad and the final scene was pretty much what anyone expected.
For those of you haven't seen Breaking Bad, here is a quick recap. When chemistry teacher Walter White (Bryan Cranston) turns 50 he learns two things: His wife, Skyler (Anna Gunn), is pregnant again, and He has inoperable lung cancer.
He quickly realises that he won't earn enough to pay for his cancer treatment, for his disabled son's special needs and for his wife and their new baby. His brother-in-law, Hank Schrader (Dean Norris), is a DEA agent and spends his time taking down meth labs around Albuquerque. He shows the two families (His and Walter's) a video of a typical take-down and on the bench, along with various drug-related items, is a huge pile of money worth about $700,000.
After seeing that huge pile of cash Walter White teams up with meth "cook" Jessie Pinkman (Aaron Paul) and together they create and sell meth and earn millions.
In the final scenes Walter White has admitted to Jesse that he allowed his earlier girlfriend, Jane (Krysten Ritter) to die, he killed Jack and his crew and in his final act goes to inspect their "cooking" equipment where he collapses and presumably dies. Jesse Pinkman has killed Todd (For killing his latest girlfriend) and makes his get-a-way in a stolen car. So what could happen next in Breaking Bad: Season 7 ?
- Jesse becomes a normal citizen and lives happily ever after. Unlikely as it would be very boring and just isn't Jesse's way !
- Jesse uses the chemistry knowledge handed to him by Walter and becomes another "Heisenberg". Quite possible as Jesse became quite skilled.
- Walter doesn't die from his bullet wounds or the cancer but disappears to another county (or country) and re-starts "cooking".
- Walter doesn't die from his bullet wounds or the cancer but ends up in prison and re-creates another empire (a bit like Prison Break).
- Walter doesn't die from his bullet wounds or the cancer but teams-up with Jesse again and starts the whole thing again somewhere else.
- A movie is made instead called "El Camino" which starts the moment Breaking Bad ends, this is very much a "what happened next" double-episode, which means, short of resurrecting Walter White, El Camino does precisely what you want it to.
