In a new interview with GQ, series creator Vince Gilligan finally spoke out about Jesse’s fate. Or, at least, his own vision of it.
“My personal feeling is that he got away.”
In the final pages of the series finale script, Gilligan wrote that it’s up to us to decide where Jesse went, but he likes to call it someplace better. So his words to GQ mesh with his original writings. But he wouldn’t be Vince Gilligan if he didn’t add this:
“But the most likely thing, as negative as this sounds, is that they’re going to find this kid’s fingerprints all over this lab and they’re going to find him within a day or a week or a month,” he said. “And he’s still going to be on the hook for the murder of two federal agents.”
That’s not as rosy an outcome as fans would want for Jesse, but Gilligan’s got a point. Still, he remained optimistic about the character. Whether it’s true or not is up to us.
“But yeah, even though that’s the most likely outcome, the way I see it is that he got away and got to Alaska, changed his name, and had a new life. You want that for the kid. He deserves it.”

Seyfried will portray the now-grown daughter in present-day Manhattan as she battles the aftermath of her troubled childhood.

Crowe and Keith Rodger will also exec produce via their Fear of God production shingle, along with Romilda De Luca. Andrea Leone Films will also co-produce and handle Italian distribution rights.
Paul is playing Seyfried’s love interest and the role should come naturally given that he played the same part in HBO’s “Big Love.”

If you thought Aaron Paul lost it over magnets, wait until you see his reaction to a magic trick by illusionist David Blaine. Breaking Bad stars Bryan Cranston and Paul join Blaine for his upcoming special, David Blaine: Real or Magic (airing on ABC Nov. 19) and Blaine surprises the duo with quite the card trick.
In the clip, Blaine asks Paul to shuffle a deck of cards. After spreading out the deck, the trio realizes the cards are “almost like a flush,” says Blaine. “Not quite though,” says Cranston.
“You know what? What’s that game … it’s like poker but it’s on a bill?” Blaine asks.
“Liar’s poker, you play with the serial numbers on the [dollar] bill,” Cranston answers.
“Where’s that bill you signed before this began?” Blaine asks Cranston.
“You’ve never seen this before I pulled it out of my pocket,” Cranston says.
Surprisingly the numbers on the bill match those face up in the deck of cards.
“What!!?” Paul says. “Wow, wow, wow! Holy s–t. I shuffled that!”
Even Paul’s wife, Lauren Parsekian, is equally as shocked. “This is like one of those moments, where I feel like I watch magic on TV, I’m like everyone’s in on it, for sure. No one is in on it! This is f–ing crazy!” Parsekian says.
