Could Giancarlo Esposito return as Gus Fring in the final episodes of Breaking Bad?

09.13.2012

Gus Fring will go down as one of the greatest villains in television history. Giancarlo Esposite portrayed Fring with such a ruthless demeanor that made him the perfect foil for Bryan Cranston's Walter White. By the end of last season, Fring was no more and Esposito had moved on to a role on ABC's ONCE UPON A TIME and NBC's upcoming REVOLUTION.

But, is there a chance that we could still see Gus Fring on BREAKING BAD in the upcoming final episodes, set to air in 2013?

EOnline revealed this scoop on Monday: Giancarlo Esposito tells us "there has been talk" and "there has been certainly ideas floating around" about his big bad character returning in some capacity for the very end. And Giancarlo is so on board with that, saying, "I want to come back in Walt's [Bryan Cranston] dream and haunt him."

Dream or not, it would be awesome to see all of the characters who have died either directly or indirectly because of Walter White come back. That would complete White's rise and fall over the course of the show.

I only ask that Fring look like he did after the bomb went off. Best scene ever.

Extra Tidbit: Can you believe that the entire span of BREAKING BAD (not counting this season premiere's flashforward) has taken place over the course of a single year?

Agreed, but I'd hope they have the same restraint I do, and skip over any Breaking Bad news that would be particularly spoilerish. Having recently seen Season 4, I don't read the Season 5 news, except this, which isn't likely that spoilerish in nature.

Such a wonderfully written, and acted out character.

A common element to the series has been to have dead characters appear in flashbacks. Gale came back in Season 4, Tortuga and Combo made appearances in Season 3. Definitely helps deepen the continuity, expand the characters and keep every episode feeling like a piece of the mosaic.

Fring is clearly intended to represent what Walt is on his path to becoming. So it only makes sense to have the awesome Giancarlo Esposito come back for a bit. While I'd also geek out at seeing Mike come back,

While I'd also geek out at seeing Mike come back, the end of his character arc was just perfect IMO and would be happy if they let him rest in peace.

BTW, loved Giancarlo's guest spot on Community.

I don't normally complain about these things but both the title of this article and its picture are incredibly insensitive to those who aren't caught up with the series. Come on, guys..

Holy hell, JoBlo. Aren't you guys supposed to be movie fans? Why would you post a picture on the front page with Fring's face blown off? Thank God I'm current on the show. EW did the same thing. It's incredibly frustrating to see such a lack of common sense from fellow fans. Whatever.

Back on topic: No. Just no. In a show as realistic as Breaking Bad there'd be no scenario where Fring would or should come back. Unless it's in some kind of dream sequence or hallucination or

I certainly hope so.

He'd said on twitter a while back that he'd he appearing in flashbacks or something. His character is too rich to leave behind entirely. Also, the first half of the 5th season just concluded. Bitching about "spoiling" things that happened in the 4th season is silly. Either keep up or don't be quite so sensitive.

I'm glad our writers are using spoiler tags and whatnot before posting a story so as to not spoil it for those us who are anxiously trying to catch up! Thanks buddy! When I hear about a character maybe coming back to a show usually instills that something down the line may have happened to that character up until now.
