What's wrong with Walter? Will Hank react to his great discovery? Will Jesse return to meth business? Whether there will be a jump in time before the final episode? Next creator «Breaking Bad» Vince Gilligan answers burning questions in an interview.
Did Walt actually throw meth business?
You can take his word for it or not. Personally, I believe that when Walt reported this Skyler, he told the truth. Did he cook his last bulk? We are still working on the final episodes.
How often do we see Jesse, since he went out of business?
He is still much to be done. Just because he went out of business does not mean that he will not be on the show. The series would have lost a lot without the acting talent of Aaron Paul.
After the scene with medical examination showed us that Walter has decided to quit the business. Does this mean that the cancer has returned to Walter?
Let's just say we never tried to do pointless scenes. If we decided to put the scenery and shoot the scene, then it must be a good reason ... this scene is not just.
What can you say about the scene at the beginning of the fifth season of the bearded Walter in a diner?
The action scenes are approximately 10-12 months after the event (first half) of the fifth season. So we briefly looked into the future. Did we see the very end? Possible. You'd be surprised how few of the last eight episodes we wrote. So far, we have only a general outline.
Does this mean that we can expect a jump in time?
Probably. Since the events of the pilot episode were about fourteen or fifteen months. So at some point, perhaps, there will be a small jump.
How could always careful Mike to let Walt beat himself?
We all sometimes feel sorry about something. Mike was always physically superior to Walt ... We've seen how he easily chained Walt to a radiator. Turn his back on Walt was a bad idea, but what to do, Mike was full of worries then ... it was a tactical mistake. Conclusion: never turn your back to Walter White.
What will be relations between Walt and Jesse?
In their last scene is clearly present, nostalgia, and the scene was like the parting of the two characters. Jesse got his. This season, he was not so much an assistant as a full partner ... However, their partnership has a crack and will not be restored: Jesse holding a gun in his belt, he does not trust his former partner.
I'm afraid I can only say the following: Seven writers, including myself, have long argued about it. We went through every option. It is difficult to imagine what Hank was thinking ... I think this is the most terrible discovery of his life.
What else can you say about the last eight episodes?
It's over. We learn the fate of all the characters. Writers will be given the best they can. We both fear and relief, knowing that it was past eight hours. There is talk about the film - so far we have not thought of. But now we do not have any restrictions on the plot.
Do you feel the pressure due to the ending?
I understand that you can not adapt to the expectations of the audience. And we must not forget that the show looks a lot of fans, but they are all unique. So please, there is nothing more dangerous than to come up with the ending, which, as you think will please a lot of people. Ending will be judged much more severely than any other previous episode. So the best solution is to try to imagine that there is no pressure.
Should Walt be punished by the end of the series?
He should not. Somewhere in the world right now, someone got away with murder hands. Maybe I can get away to Walter. Nor, for that matter, there was such a satisfactory ending? It's an unusual episode. I'm very proud, but often realize that sympathize with the man who met in life, gone over to the other side of the street ... He's a bad guy. But he's smart, works hard and is experiencing the deepest feelings, so he involuntarily begin to empathize. Sometimes I "support" for him, sometimes I want he to be hit by a car. So is a "satisfactory" ending - the right ending?
Breaking Bad received two WGA awards - for best drama and for the best episode. In this regard, the journalists decided to try the series creator - Vince Gilligan, who spoke about last season and how to roll Walter.
To begin with a short-recall where we left off. Walt (played by Brian Krenson) went to Tio Salamanca in a conspiracy against their common enemy in order to lure out of the lair and lure in a nursing home, "Casa Tranquilo." But there is rather helpless paralytic, fraternized with the authorities, Gus Fring Tio waited in a wheelchair, stuffed with explosives.
In the fifth - and final extended to sixteen episodes - season "we are on the same path, which went on for four seasons" - Gilligan said at the award ceremony WGA, where the authors Breaking Bad grabbed the award in two categories at once.
"We, in fact, took good-natured protagonist, and turned him into a villain. And to the bottom of the black hole into which he jumped without anyone forcing, Walter White has to fall and fall. "
But is it required to keep such a way? Walt threw superboss of laboratory, which is only waiting for a pretext to get rid of, once again won the confidence of Jesse, and for several seasons as the best shot to fame on the continent, the manufacturer of methamphetamine. Why not to stop and did not return to normal life, without waiting for the arrest or death in a gang’s hands?
"Hmm, good question," - thought Gilligan. "Oppression is a line of Walt for the benefit of his family or the fact there are other reasons? Do not implicated here egocentricity and megalomania? Not if he gets on his actions sincere pleasure? Do not intoxicated if his power? These questions, in my opinion, everyone should ask themselves, who faced a choice - take it on or turn back. "
Another question is the answer to which we will look at the swan song of Breaking Bad (which is considered by many to be two verses): who will replace Gus Fring and will become the new real obstacle to Walt for world domination?
Reminding us that Gus was a "wonderful character" played "a wonderful actor," Giankarlo Esposito, Gilligan acknowledged that the death of this "godfather" leaves a huge hole in the soul of the series. "But I want to believe that Walter White, and, perhaps, other characters will be able to patch it."
"Now, everything will be different, but no less interesting!" - Added Gilligan. - "And you're right, we pulled up the bar inexcusable high".
