In the script for the Breaking Bad series finale, creator Vince Gilligan left the fate of Aaron Paul’s Jesse Pinkman up in the air for the viewer to lớn decide: “From here on, it’s up to lớn us to lớn say where he’s headed … I lượt thích to hotline it ‘something better’ and leave it at that.”
But Gilligan did not leave it at that. Instead, he wrote and directed a two-hour feature called El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, on Netflix và in limited theatrical release now. The highly anticipated thriller continues Jesse’s story, chronicling his great escape after Walter trắng (Bryan Cranston) and a trunk-mounted machine gun killed off Uncle Jack (Michael Bowen) và the trắng supremacist army who kept poor Pinkman trapped in a cage, cooking the signature xanh crystal recipe on pain of death — not just his death, but those of the ones he loves.

While Gilligan’s original vision for Jesse’s ending was open to interpretation, the man who first dreamed Heisenberg into existence made it clear in his script he saw a brighter road ahead for Mr. White’s star pupil. Would the outcome of El Camino impact Jesse’s ending for the worse? Did Gilligan think better on cutting Jesse some slack, & instead decided khổng lồ revert to lớn his original vision for the character by torturing him beyond belief, almost as agonizingly for the audience as for poor Jesse himself?
The answer to those questions — the final fate of Jesse Pinkman — now stands revealed, thanks to lớn El Camino…
Two men posing as police officers — Neil and Casey (played by Scott MacArthur and Scott Shepherd), Kandy điện thoại Welding employees who did business with Uncle Jack’s crew — roll up khổng lồ Todd’s apartment in search of the money. After a tense standoff, they reach terms with Jesse: he can take a third of the money, as long as he shows them where it’s stashed. No one is especially thrilled with the deal.
Jesse spends the rest of the afternoon visiting vacuum retailers, hoping khổng lồ find the cleanup guy Saul (Bob Odenkirk) once told him about, so he can buy his way khổng lồ freedom. Eventually, Jesse finds the right man:Ed Galbraith, played once again by “Granite State” actor Robert Forster. Ed won’t take Jesse until he has enough money to lớn pay for the time he ditched the opportunity khổng lồ escape in season five’s “Confessions,” as well as the new disappearing costs. Jesse is $1,800 short of the expense, sending him back out into the world lớn get the right amount of cash.
The film reaches its climax when Jesse steals a pair of guns from his parents’ houseand shows up khổng lồ Kandy mobile Welding, where he plans to lớn score more money from Neil & Casey. He tries lớn ask them nicely, but a coked-up Neil has a different plan in mind: a gun battle, wild west style. Neil likes his odds, with his eyes on Jesse’s antique luger — but what he doesn’t tài khoản for is the second gun, the revolver held in Jesse’s pocket. Like Walter White’s machine gun in the trunk, Jesse uses the hidden weapon lớn blast Neil out of existence the second he tries to draw. Jesse’s forced to lớn kill Neil as well, và when the dust settles, he’s able lớn score the money needed khổng lồ get out of town.

In the closing scenes of the film, we see Jesse in two earlier moments of his life featuring two of the most significant people from his past — Walter White & Jane (Krysten Ritter) —offering different pearls of wisdom. In a scene set within the events of season two’s “4 Days Out,” a proud Walter says he’s happy Jesse “didn’t have khổng lồ wait
In the end, Jesse takes Jane’s advice, and chooses his final destination: Alaska, the last frontier, the place he said he wanted lớn escape lớn all the way back in “Confessions.” (The first scene of El Camino reveals Mike as the originator of the Alaska suggestion; so perhaps the real lesson is don’t go where the universe tells you to go, & don’t choose yourself; let Mike Ehrmantraut make all your decisions for you. Good advice!) Before they part ways, Jesse provides Ed with a letter for Brock (Ian Posada), the contents of which are kept hidden from the viewer. Ed promises he’ll send the letter once he goes on a trip lớn Mexico đô thị in a month’s time.
The film’s final image mirrors Jesse’s final Breaking Bad appearance, behind the wheel of a vehicle — except this time, there’s no howling, no tears streaming down his face, no need for speed. This time, at last, Jesse is at peace — và this time, what Gilligan wrote about Walter trắng in the series finale script now applies to Heisenberg’s most notable student: “He got away.”
