Breaking Bad is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, and the series could have ended in a very different way. In fact, the men behind the series went through several ideas before they went with the ending they had planned.
“Catlin: There was debate about that, and there was one pitch that he would die ignominiously on a gurney in a hospital, sort of pushed aside as a John Doe while life continued without him. I think the thinking behind that was, so much of what he chased was a sense of status and a sense of importance. It would have been more grim for him to be just tossed aside and overlooked at the end.
Schnauz: There was the other pitch where he had been shot, and crawled into a restaurant, sort of a “Blood Simple”-esque scene, ending up underneath …
Gould: … a Pollos Hermanos table.
Gilligan: I run into more people who were sorry he died at the end. This whole thing about “Geez, is he really dead or not?”
