7 'El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie' Predictions Based on the Trailer (PHOTOS)
We all know that anytime Skinny Pete is around that Badger (Matt Jones) isn't far behind, so it's safe to say there will be more than one interrogation taking place over Jesse's whereabouts. And if that's the case, expect some good comedic relief from what's sure to be a dramatic TV event.
Hank & Gomie Live On
In the trailer, there's one detail some less eagle-eyed fans may have missed, and that's the presence of two more Breaking Bad
characters that are sadly no longer living in the world created by Vince Gilligan. Hank (Dean Norris) and Gomie's (Steven Michael Quezada) photos are hanging on the wall outside of the room where Skinny Pete's being interrogated, implying that despite their current state, they'll play some role in the story.
One component that we could see come into play is Better Call Saul
's black-and-white present timeline sequences. One thing we know is that Jesse still holds Brock's (Ian Posada) poisoning against the lawyer-in-hiding. If the fugitives were to cross paths in the film, it would be a great segue way for Saul
to reintroduce Walter (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse for Season 5, as Vince Gilligan has said that the original series characters would make an appearance in the spinoff at some point. It is neither confirmed nor denied that Bob Odenkirk will appear in the film but in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter
, the actor mentioned the film as though he knows about the story but is not necessarily in it, so there's a chance he may not be involved. Only tuning in on October 11 will give fans a definite answer.
When fans last saw Walt's wife and former accomplice Skyler (Anna Gunn), she was living in a low-income housing unit with kids Walt Jr. (RJ Mitte) and Holly, but this was before Walter's massacre at Jack's compound. Perhaps she'll be integral in providing information about Jesse as feds continue their search for the evasive criminal, even if she's playing dumb for her own self-preservation.
While the drug empire that Walt and Jesse built is part of the main reason why they were being sought out by law enforcers, it was the murder of Hank and Gomie which pushed the case over the edge. Considering what fans know of Marie's (Betsy Brandt) personality, it wouldn't be surprising to see her involved with the investigation and search for Jesse since she probably believes he's partly responsible for her husband's death.
Over the Border
Since Albuquerque's proximity to the border of Mexico has played a role in the series, there's a possibility that Jesse could seek refuge in the neighboring country to avoid authorities. While that remains fairly vague at this point in time, we do recall Jesse's race to freedom in the titular El Camino during Bad
Walter's Final Words
For fans hoping to see a Walter White return, there's a slim chance that he could in fact appear. Since Bryan Cranston has maintained that fans never saw Walter "officially" die, perhaps authorities that find him at Jack's compound could try questioning Heisenberg about his former protegee's whereabouts. It would be nice to see Walt defend Jesse one last time, but this can only be predicted. No matter what, the film will hopefully include Cranston's iconic antihero in some way before El Camino
The first trailer for the buzzed-about Breaking Bad movie surprised everyone when it was released Saturday, August 24, and despite its vague content, there's a lot to take away from the minute-long segment.
Featuring the interrogation of Skinny Pete (Charles Baker), the trailer confirmed what many already knew — El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie will focus on Jesse Pinkman's (Aaron Paul) post-series storyline. Apart from the appearance of Skinny Pete, there were a couple other nods to the original series in the first teaser.
From Gustavo to Gale, a lot of familiar faces appear in the AMC spinoff.
According to Netflix's logline, El Camino follows the story of Jesse after his dramatic escape from captivity at Uncle Jack's (Michael Bowen) compound. Before moving on, Jesse will have to come to terms with his past in this thriller written and directed by series creator Vince Gilligan.
