BREAKING BAD's Vince Gilligan Reveals Which Character Almost Got Killed Off Finale
Last Sunday, AMC aired the fifth and final series ending for its hit drama BREAKING BAD. Following the broadcast of the 'Felina' episode, the network earned record-breaking ratings as viewers tuned in to see the fates of their favorite characters.
Breaking Bad scribe Vince Gilligan later revealed some alternative endings for the finale, including killing off Anna Gunn's character Skyler. "I was leaning toward that and the other writers were like... that's a bridge too far. [They said,] 'Let's not do that' - and they were right" shared Gilligan. "I think that would have been very unnecessary. We talked about a possible version where Skyler and Walt are tied up at a Motel 6 kind of place and he's talking to her [from outside] a bathroom. He finally forces the door open and she's in a bloody tub or something like that."
