“Breaking Bad” Fans…Even the Creator Doesn’t Know How It’s All Gonna End!

Hey, "Breaking Bad" fans! If you've learned anything from the show's latest season finale, it's that you should have no idea what to expect! Don't believe me? Well according to a new interview, even the show creator has no idea what's going to happen!

Hey, “Breaking Bad” fans!  If you’ve learned anything from the show’s latest season finale, it’s that you should have no idea what to expect!  Don’t believe me?  Well according to a new interview, even the show creator has no idea what’s going to happen!

According to MSNBC, despite there only being 16 episodes left, creator/showrunner Vince Gilligan has no idea how the show is going to wrap up:

“Wish I did…I have certain hopes and dreams for how the characters will wind up, but I don’t have anything nailed down plot-wise.”

That’s not to say that he’s not thinking about it…Gilligan says that the ending “keeps me awake at night. It gives me nightmares. The closer we get to the final episode, I assume the worse it’ll be. But that’s why we’re ending after 16. You want to go out with fans of the show still being fans. The best we can do is be disciplined and honest in our storytelling, and not go for the bells and whistles. Let the chips fall where they may.”

One thing they know they’re not going to go for is shock value.  Gilligan says that despite everything that’s happened over the past few seasons, nothing is deliberately written to get a rise out of fans:

“We don’t set out to make the show shocking…I know you’re rolling your eyes when you’re (reading) this, but it’s true. We’re telling a very dark story and we’re involved in a very dark world, and to paint it as anything less than unpleasant would be disingenuous. We’re looking to be showmen and women, trying to give the audience something to talk about the next day around the water cooler. But the ultimate goal isn’t to be gruesome or bloody — it’s to be dramatic.”

Respectful…and despite all the fun he’s having and fans clinging to the show…well…like drug addicts…Gilligan says he knows when it’s time to hang up the rubber gloves:

“It’s been the best job I’ve ever had, and I suspect I’m going to look back on it with a great deal of nostalgia. But after 16 more episodes, it will be time to end it all. It was always intended to be a finite, closed-ended show. You have to know when to hold ‘em and when to fold ‘em.”
