Breaking Bad spoiler, kind of: A Reddit user is really convinced that a Breaking Bad main character will be killed off tonight.
This may “spoil” your dinner, but he (or she) claims that he will drink his own urine if one of the principal players is still alive by the end of the episode airing this evening.
Tonight’s episode is called “Rabid Dog,” and is one of the last five episodes of season five of the hit AMC series before it concludes on September 29. Last week’s show ended with an enraged Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) busting down the front door of Walter White’s home and dousing the place with gasoline. The Pinkman character had an epiphany that White had poisoned little Brock, the son of his former girlfriend.
The fan in question posted the following statement to Reddit about promising to down a urine cocktail if a main character survives the episode:
“A main character will die, I’m sure of it. So sure, in fact, that I’ll take a shot of my own piss if a main character does not die this episode (main characters being any of the White/Schrader family, Jesse, Saul, Gomie, Todd, and Lydia). Being 100% serious here.”
For those who have tuned in late or not at all to Breaking Bad, Bryan Cranston — the actor you might remember as the crazy dentist from Seinfeld among other roles — plays Walter White, a formerly straight-laced high school chemistry teacher in Albuquerque, New Mexico, who initially jumps into meth manufacturing, a.k.a. “cooking,” to create a nest egg for his family after he’s gone. (The White character was diagnosed with lung cancer, and he also has a son with cerebral palsy). With one horrendous and dangerous escapade after another, the show is intense, but it also contains some very dark humor. The generally unpredictable Breaking Bad is part of AMC’s powerhouse Sunday night franchise which also includes The Walking Dead and Mad Men.
Showrunner Vince Gilligan has already promised viewers that they will be satisfied with how the final episodes unfold and how the storylines are resolved.
Do you think this fan is going out on a limb with the Breaking Bad spoiler/prediction that a main character will get dispatched tonight?
