Bryan Cranston is currently in the midst of promoting Breaking Bad, and he's been discussing the highly anticipated series finale. After nearing the final season, Cranston and his co-star Aaron Paul have been giving their thoughts on the possible ending of the show, but neither of them will say anything concrete - obviously.
When Cranston is actually asked about what his expectations on the show's ending were, he explains, "I honestly didn't know what would happen, or how. Aaron and I constantly teased each other: "I bet I kill you." And he'd go, "No, no, no, I kill you. My guess would have been that Walt survives. The one person who should die, because of the toxicity he's created, who almost wishes he would die – "Enough already! Let me out of here" – it wouldn't get past me, if that's the guy who survives. And the innocents – the Jessies, the Skylers – I think they go. That was my guess."
He also discusses sympathy for his character, Walter White, and says he might change his mind about his actions if he were given time to think about it. He says, "I mean he's a bright man, so if he slowed down and had time to reflect, he'd probably talk himself out of what he's doing.."
Breaking Bad's series finale will air in three weeks, on September 29th. The showrunner has already been discussing a possible series spin-off based on the character of Saul Goodman, but this will definitely be the final hurrah for Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul - not the least because their film careers are taking off.
