“Alaska: The Last Frontier” a possible name and clue for the sequel of El Camino?
Vince Gilligan, at the end of Breaking Bad, had left some symbolic clues for us that came true after 6 years in the form of El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie. The man probably did it again with the end of El Camino movie. Though we have been told that El Camino marks the closure of Jesse Pinkman’s storyline, we seriously doubt the man, and thus, are trying to pick up some clues he must have thrown at us.
Where does “Alaska – The Last Frontier”, a possible name for El Camino sequel, appears in the movie?
Remember the scene when Jesse walks out of Ed’s truck and sees the sun of Alaska for the first time in El Camino’s ending? It’s when Ed drops him thousands of miles away from the world he was running from. It was meant to be a closure for the story of Jesse Pinkman and his miseries. Jesse bids a Good Bye to Ed, and he gets into the mini-truck that Ed has arranged for him to travel on the snowy roads of Alaska.
He pulls the truck in reverse and is about to set off for his happy journey. And just at that point, the camera very particularly zooms at the license plate of the truck Jesse is driving. It stays there for a moment, and we can notice something very specific written over the license plate of the truck.
It was written, “Alaska – The Last Frontier”. This could be just a random tattoo over the license plate. But as we know that nothing is random in the Breaking Bad universe, and considering the camera movements of that shot, it seems like that was intentional. It could be a name to the sequel of El Camino, “Alaska: The Last Frontier”.
Why do we think “Alaska: The Last Frontier” could be the name for El Camino’s sequel?
Other than the fact that the name appeared at the ending of the movie, on the license plate of the truck Jesse was driving, and with a very particular zoom-in shot, there are various logics that concretes this theory.
The proceedings were similar, although drastically opposite in nature. In Breaking Bad we saw Jesse taking the car to run away from Walter and that world. The car was named El Camino, which later became the name for the movie. Also, the word El Camino translates to “The Way” in English, which symbolizes the way Jesse is going to take to run away from that world. At the end of El Camino as well, the proceedings were similar.
Jesse finally managed to escape that world, and now he is not running away, but travelling far away from that world. The foreshadowing in Breaking Bad’s ending with the car “El Camino” gets mirrored with “Alaska – The Last Frontier” written on the license plate of the truck Jesse drives off in.
Also, keeping the current setting in mind, if a sequel to El Camino: A Breaking Bad movie will be made, it has to take place in Alaska. Thus, knowing that “The Last Frontier” means the last place to be held or explored, can mean the last fight for Jesse.
What could be the other interpretations of “Alaska – The Last Frontier” other than a name for El Camino’s sequel?
There might be other and more obvious interpretations to what we read as “Alaska – The Last Frontier” on the license plate of the truck, in the ending of El Camino. The word “Last Frontier” means a place last to be settled in or explored. Jesse is in Alaska at the end of the movie, and he has managed to escape the word of Heisenberg finally. He is now peacefully driving off from his miseries into the new world of peace, taking some good memories, as shown through flashbacks, with him. Thus, Vince Gilligan might be making a symbolic statement about the closure of Jesse Pinkman’s story forever.
“Alaska: The Last Frontier”, do you think it’s a possible name for El Camino’s sequel? Or if it’s simply a statement for the closure of Jesse’s story?
