Unreal Video Shows Bryan Cranston And Aaron Paul Reading Breaking Bad Finale Script For First Time
| Last updated
A video has revealed the emotional first read through of the Breaking Bad finale by Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul. Watch the footage here... although I must warn you, massive spoilers lay ahead:
Now, not many things have left me as utterly bereft as I felt when I finished the Breaking Bad series.
Not only is Aaron Paul making Bryan Cranston the godfather of his new baby enough to make you weep, but recently reemerged footage of the pair reading the epic script of the Breaking Bad finale is sure to also have you reaching for the tissues.
The clip shows the dexterous duo cracking open a cold one and sitting down to find out the final part of the journey for Walter White and Jesse Pinkman.
Cranston appears as if he's a parent reading a bedtime story to Paul - although, one with a lot more machine gun fire, blood and drug money - shown on the split screen below in the footage.
Paul is slouched in his armchair, mouth agape, hoodie pulled up over his head - the very embodiment of Pinkman - before he reaches the lines where Jesse is stood, at his wits end, pointing a gun at Walt.
Upon Cranston reading the parenthetical, Paul is left with a look of shock and concern spread across his face as he realises what the ending has in store for both characters.
"End of series," Cranston reads, before joking: "Well, I'm guessing there won't be a sequel."
Paul is left rubbing his forehead, lost for words, before he finally mutters out: "It's great. You know, it's perfect."
The clip has amassed over half-a-million views, 20,000 likes and thousands of comments, with fans of the show having flooded to the post similarly overcome with emotions like both the actors.
One said: "Coming together of geniuses is what BB is, period."
Another applauded the length of the series and how and when it decided to end: "A rare series that got to run its course, finish on its own terms, and was amazing from beginning to end. Just perfection all around."
One user said: "Yes, Breaking Bad is still one of the best written TV shows in recent times" while a fourth resolved: "Easily 2 of the most talented actors on the planet."
A lone user went massively against the grain, however, and condemned the season's finale.
"I didn't like the ending. It was still very well written but there was something missing. I just think it needed a more earthy finale where Skylar killed Walt, or something," they said.
