As viewers are eagerly awaiting the second part of "Breaking Bad" final season this summer, Entertainment Weekly asks some celebrity fans to imagine how the crime series should end. With his skills as a writer and a comedian, Conan O'Brien's vision of the show's conclusion is an unordinary one.
"We all know that Gus Fring didn't die," he begins sharing his take on the series' ending. "He crawled to safety and, using Los Pollos Hermanos chicken batter, reconstructed his face. With his partner Mike dead, Chicken Face Fring teams with the tortoise carrying the severed head. Together, this unlikely pair murder Hank as he sits on a toilet, searching for more clues in the complete works of Emily Dickinson," he continues, making a reference to a great poet.
The "CONAN" host further elabotares the characters' fate, "They kill Jesse at the groundbreaking of his 'Yo Bitch' Frozen Yogurt for Women shop, while Walt escapes and flees to a remote Caribbean island where he beats cancer, only to be eaten by a shark with cancer. Fring and the Head-Tortoise inherit the car wash, marry, and you can follow their mishaps in the Breaking Bad spin-off Tortuga and Me."
The real version of the "Breaking Bad" conclusion, however, will only be revealed when AMC airs the final eight episodes of the show beginning Sunday, August 11 at 9 P.M. ET/PT. The cable channel has also announced an accompanying half-hour talk show, "Talking Bad", that will air live following each new "Breaking Bad" episode.
Series creator Vince Gilligan recently talked about the proposed spin-off centering on Bob Odenkirk's shady criminal lawyer Saul Goodman. "Nothing's written in stone, but we are working away on it," he revealed.
"My writer and producer, Peter Gould, who created the character of Saul way back in Season 2, he and I have been talking, trying to figure out what a Saul Goodman show would look like. What would be the details of it, the particulars of it? And we're getting together to hash that out every chance we get," he further shared.
"So we just have to figure out exactly what kind of story we're telling. Is it a story about his creation of his own character? Because Saul Goodman, as he explains in his first episode, is not his real name. He is a self-created character, much like Heisenberg. Do we tell the story of his origins? We're still trying to hash that out. But there are a lot of fun possibilities."
