Now that it’s 2013, we need to face that Breaking Bad will soon return for it’s final episodes. Theories abound about the never predictable show but they’re just theories. With several questions still open, there’s no way to know how Vince Gilligan plans to wrap everything up. Unless you just ask him.
Gilligan doesn’t reveal spoilers about the drama’s final scenes but he does speak to what his goals are.
“It’s going to be polarizing no matter how you slice it,” Gilligan told Vulture, “but you don’t want 10 percent to say it was great and 90 percent to say it sucked ass. You want those numbers to be reversed.” According to Gilligan, he’s looking for something less Scarface and more along the lines of Casablanca.
“No one gets everything they wanted. The guy doesn’t get the girl, but he has the satisfaction of knowing she wants him. And he doesn’t get her because he has to save the free world. What better ending is there than that? I’m not saying we’re going to approach that or reach in that direction. Our story doesn’t line up [with Casablanca]. But we’re looking for that kind of satisfaction.”
So there’s still a chance for a shoot-out with neo-Nazis. Cool.
