That’s right! Over the past 8 years, various fan theories about ‘Breaking Bad’ have got a good amount of attention on the internet. Out of these theories, we bring to you the top 10 crazy theories, which can absolutely reboot ‘Breaking Bad’ Season 6.
- Walter White is alive but paying the price
- Ted is Walt Jr’s real father
- Jesse Pinkman tries to start fresh but eventually goes back to his old ways
- ‘The Walking Dead’ and ‘Breaking Bad’ crossover
- Walt Jr. ends up carrying forward his father’s legacy
With an IMDb rating of 9.5/10, several critics of television shows agree that”‘Breaking Bad’ is the best show ever“. The neo-western crime-thriller-drama series has been an all-time favourite, specifically among the “youthful” audience.
After watching the five-part series and carefully speculating all characters and their ulterior motives throughout the show, fans have shared their wittiest, most dramatic, fan theories. Read on to know more.
1. Walter White hallucinated his death
In the final scene of the show, Walter is seen trying to end things once and for all by taking revenge on Uncle Jack and his gang of neo-Nazis but also attempting to rescue Jessie at the same time. Towards the end, he defeats all his enemies and also succumbs to bullets, eventually leading to his death.
Several fans suggest that after Walter was shot, he was in the hiding but instead of really dying, he ended up hallucinating. This theory is supported by fans who thought the show ended way sooner than it should have. So, if Walter White is still alive, a reboot it is a must!
2. Were Gus and Max romantic partners?
Don Eladio first met Gus Fring in 1989. Gus and Max didn’t directly come off romantic partners. However, after Eladio ordered to kill Max, Fring is heartbroken and took it upon himself to make the gang leader and the entire cartel pay.
Because of this dedication, fans think the two men were romantic partners. But, since Max and Gus are both out of the picture, it would be amazing to see new characters bond the way these two men did.
3. The mystery of Gus’ secret identity
The only known fact known to fans is that Gus was from Chile and that, for some reason, Don Eladio refused to kill Gus when he had the chance. The fan theory around this mysterious road is that Gus was once a Chilean aristocrat who helped the CIA install the dictator Augusto Pinochet in power.
This theory could open many doors from the past, eventually making it one of the storylines for the reboot.
4. Walter White is alive but paying the price
Many fans believe that Walter White survived those gruesome gunshots. Now, whether he hallucinated his death or simply survived somehow, fans are also convinced that his life wouldn’t be any happy.
According to one Reddit theory, it wouldn’t be pretty. Heisenberg would stand trial and go to prison. Although he tries to leave Skyler White with information to cut a deal with the cops, she could also easily go to jail—or lose custody of her children. And the kids would eventually not get the money he left with Elliot and Gretchen.
5. Ted is Walt Jr’s real father
This is one of the many bold fan theories on the internet. According to fans, during her time at Beneke Fabricators, Skyler White and Ted Beneke had a flirtatious relationship with each other which probably led to the pregnancy. It would be interesting to unravel this mystery in the reboot.
6. The entire series was just a dream
This theory has received mixed comments on whether this makes sense or not. According to fans who believe it does, Jesse Pinkman basically fell asleep in one of the classes and dreamed about parts of everything that happened in the series. So, if this were to be considered true, it would mean that Vince Gilligan has some serious writing to do to make it up to the eagerly waiting fans.
7. Jesse Pinkman tries to start fresh but eventually goes back to his old ways
‘El Camino- The Breaking Bad Movie’ was a good surprise that fans did not expect. It definitely answered a majority of their questions about what happened to Jesse Pinkman after he chose not to kill Walter and escaped instead.
The sequel ended with Pinkman wanting to start afresh. However, fan theories suggest that he never succeeded and eventually went back to making and selling meth for survival.
8. ‘The Walking Dead’ and ‘Breaking Bad’ crossover
Now that the cat is out of the bag, believe it or not, fans have suggested that AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’ and ‘Breaking Bad’ are from the same universe.
As fans began to find small similarities like Merle secret drug stash that included Walt’s blue meth, they argued that the blue meth actually caused the zombie apocalypse seen in ‘The Walking Dead’. So, if Walt is really dead, don’t be surprised to see him walking around like a zombie, quite literally!
9. Walt Jr. ends up carrying forward his father’s legacy
The question about who Walt Jr’s father is might come to light eventually. However, theories about whether the young adult’s career seems to be falling in the same path as Walter White’s is gaining momentum. This could mean that he could be the next mastermind working with an ulterior motive.
10. Walt never had cancer
Truth be told, there are many theories created by fans suggesting how he got cancer in the first place. But, if we were to imagine Walt not having cancer at all, it would be a major plot twist that we didn’t see coming.
Nonetheless, season 6 would surely be a treat for the audience and die-hard fans.
