Breaking Bad is nearing its conclusion, and spoilers are running rampant as fans try to guess what could happen to Walter White, the high school chemistry teacher turned meth kingpin.
The highly rated show has only four episodes remaining, and there is still a lot up in the air with Walter and his drug-dealing partner, Jesse Pinkman. The anticipation has sent Breaking Bad fans into a frenzied attempt to find meaning in the bits and pieces of information that have come out through producers and the stars of the show.
Even the title for the finale has led to some speculation. Breaking Bad producers revealed that the last episode will be titled “Felina,” which one Reddit user decoded as elements from the periodic table:
Other users pointed out that “Felina” is an anagram for “Finale.”
The stars of Breaking Bad have offered some hints at finale spoilers as well. Actor Bryant Cranston said his character, Walter White, is in good shape through the first half of Season 5, with his main rival Gus Fring dead.
But Cranston said there will be trouble ahead in the Breaking Bad finale.
“It would be [Walter's] greatest wish for the last few months of his life to be able to have a boring mundane world to live in… knowing that his family is taken care of for the rest of their lives,” he said in an interview with Nightline. “He’s not going to get it…. There is going be some trouble. There’s going to be some bad things happening. It’s Breaking Bad, not Breaking Good.”
So could Walter White die at the end of the show? Cranston won’t say one way or the other, but said the outcome would be fitting either way.
“It would make sense if he is [killed]. In some way it would make sense if he isn’t,” he said. “Either way, I’m along for the ride.”
Aaron Paul, who plays Jesse Pinkman in the series, also said the show is headed for an explosive conclusion.
“Each season of Breaking Bad gets progressively darker and this final season, each episode just gets more and more intense,” he said, via the Daily Express.“And just hold on because it’s about to get really, really, really crazy.”
Fans will get a chance to see if the Breaking Bad finale spoilers will come true when the series ends on September 29.
