Vince Gilligan has thrown some clues on us at the end of El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie and those could mean a sequel for El Camino.
Do you remember the ending of Breaking Bad? When Jesse Pinkman finally managed to run away from Walter, the prison, and that world, driving away in a car and throwing dirt and symbolism on our face. We never knew what it meant, until we came to know about El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie being planned by Vince Gilligan.
The car Jesse took was named “El Camino”. El Camino is a Spanish word, which in English means “The way”. The name of the movie that got made to presumably conclude Jesse’s storyline is also named “El Camino”. And in the movie, we saw Jesse making his way out of the world of Heisenberg.
However, to our ignorance, there were similar kinds of clues at the end of El Camino movie, which might hint at various possibilities of El Camino’s sequel.
- Clues hinting at the possible sequel for El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie
- Jesse’s letter to Broke, a possible clue for the sequel of El Camino?
- “Alaska The Last Frontier” a possible name and clue for El Camino’s sequel?
- Flashbacks from Breaking Bad sprinkled throughout the movie
Clues and Spoilers in El Camino that might hint at the possible sequel for El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie
Vince Gilligan had given us “Breaking Bad”, one of the greatest television shows in the history. There were many things playing in favour of the show, and one of them was symbolism and foreshadowing, hints sprinkled throughout the story, that we recall at a point and realize that it was a spoiler and build-up for this moment in the show.
That realization amazes us, and what’s more, it gives us spoilers for the future if we could catch it. We have caught some of such spoilers in the form of clues and hints thrown at us in the ending of El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie and all of it hints towards the possible sequel for El Camino movie.
Jesse’s letter to Broke, a possible clue for the sequel of El Camino?
Before the very final scene of El Camino movie, when Jesse reached Alaska and was about to bid goodbye to Ed, he hands him a letter. A closeup to that letter in Ed’s hand shows us that Jesse had addressed that letter to Broke, son of Jesse’s late girlfriend.
What could be in that letter? An apology? Location of Jesse and a way for Broke to reach him? Some financial help? If that letter had something very obvious, then Vince would have shown it to us. Or, if that letter had nothing of much importance, Vince wouldn’t have chosen such a specific time and way of showing it to us.
The letter most possibly contained spoilers for the audience. The letter could be the foreshadowing of what’s coming, a sequel to El Camino.
“Alaska The Last Frontier” a possible name and clue for El Camino’s sequel?
We have seen Vince doing the foreshadowing stuff with the name of the car “El Camino” at the end of Breaking Bad. The same name became El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie. It was no coincidence. It was our smart man Vince Gilligan. At the end of El Camino as well, when Jesse prepares his Ute to drive off on the roads of Alaska.
The camera zooms in very specifically on the truck’s license plate. And we could see “Alaska – The Last Frontier” written on the license plate. What could it mean? Jesse is in Alaska, driving off in a car in the similar way he did in the finale of Breaking Bad, and the camera precisely shows us something written on the license plate of the truck he was driving.
Was is a possibly a clue for the sequel for El Camino, or a possible name “Alaska: The Last Frontier” for El Camino’s sequel?
Flashbacks from Breaking Bad sprinkled throughout the movie
El Camino had several flashbacks from Breaking Bad. All flashbacks had Jesse spending some good time with his former partners. The movie starts with him spending some time with Mike, confessing their ifs and buts. Towards the end we see him with Walter, eating in a restaurant somewhat during season 2 of the show, and listening to what Walt has to say about him.
The ending flashback has him with Jane, the girl he loved the most, talking what Jesse should do with his life. All these flashbacks could simply mean recalling to his good times before concluding his story in a happy state. Or, it could mean something more.
All the flashbacks have someone telling one thing or another to Jesse. Mike, Walter, Jane, all of them in the flashbacks were insisting Jesse on doing things, and Jesse recalling them at such an ending point might also hint towards the continuation of his character.
What if all these are a clue to the sequel of El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie?
