Spoiler: Bryan Cranston says "never say never" to the return of Walter White

05.30.2014

Bryan Cranston solidified his career with BREAKING BAD. The actor had a deep filmography prior to the AMC drama series, but it was his performance as Walter White will go down in history as one of the best acting jobs of all time. But, BREAKING BAD ended it's run last year with one of the best series finales of all time. But, as those who have seen the final scene know, it also was a pretty final finale. Or, was it?

Stoking the exact type of thing the Internet thrives on, Cranston made comments during a recent interview with CNN that could be construed in many different ways. Host Ashliegh Banfield specifically called out the closing scene of the series that appears to show Walter White dying on the floor of a meth lab as police surround his body. Cranston confirms Banfield's comment that we do not see a body bag and even says "I don't know" when she asks if the character died. Then things get really interesting.

Banfield: “No movie? No nothing? No Walter White ever again?”

Cranston: “Never say never."

With the spin-off prequel BETTER CAUL SAUL set to air in the Fall, Cranston could be truthfully hinting that we may see the man who would become Heisenberg once again, but he could also just be playing along for fun. Cranston was rumored as a potential Lex Luthor and just starred in GODZILLA for director Gareth Edwards. While seeing him as Walter White would be awesome, I would rather let the series be where it is. We don't need everything tied up with a bow to make for a good ending.

But, still...

NO NO NO

In the history of bad ideas, this is a massively HORRIBLE one.

Breaking Bad was the show that actually got me watching TV series again. It was excellent and ended on the perfect note. Walter White's story has been told and there is no reason whatsoever to go back to it again. Plus, Cranston is a phenomenal actor and you really want to see him take on other roles and stretch rather than get typecast.

OH FUCK NO!

Please Odin, don't let this happen! Breaking Bad is a near perfect series, with an arguable perfect ending. Bringing Walt back would tarnish it's legacy. Fuck this shit, fuck it right in it's asshole!

I think the only way he could show up in Better Call Saul, would be if they do a back story on Jesse, or a few of his friends and show Walter as their teacher.

Breaking Bad is one of the most perfect series I have ever seen. From start to finish it was fantastic in every way, from the brilliant acting to the plot twists (almost nothing that occurred was expected, including the series finale which, again continuing the perfection, wrapped the series up with absolutely no loose ends). If they do bring Walter White back, I hope they have a damn good and innovative explanation. I really do not want the series cheapened by some stupid gimmick. That said,

Breaking Bad Spoilers

He's definitely talking about Better Call Saul. But, we don't know for sure Walter White died. The screen cuts to black just as the officer checks his pulse. We can easily assume he died, but he could just as easy be alive.

I'll say it: NEVER.

i would LOVE to know how many zeroes were on they check they gave Vince Gilligan to go along with an AWFUL idea like "Better Call Saul". Seriously. We saw Jesse and Walt meet Saul for the first time. What are you gonna do? Have them JUST ALMOST MEET to tease the audience? Have him somehow involved with some low level dealer they dealt with before? This is what's wrong with tv/movies. Breaking Bad is over. It was an amazing, unbelievable, outstanding show. Don't fuck up the canon with this

Better Call Saul...

Before you all get bent over backwards, I think he might be referring to Walter showing up on Better Call Saul, which is a prequel to Breaking Bad.

Ah now.

I've watched all of Breaking Bad but i think it's a bit dry to put the labelled spoiler in the title along with a pic from the last scene. Probably a load of people going to say it's been available for ages but I still don't think that's an excuse.

As for him coming back I think it would diminish Walter's story a bit to have him return. I'm not a big fan of prequels anyways though.

Yep, can't wait for the new series in which Walt and Dexter become lumberjack buddies.

The finale was perfect. Please don't bring the show back. It was perfect the way it ended.
