Breaking Bad's mastermind Vince Gilligan cooked up one of the purest endings to a television show ever, but apparently he had a slightly alternate felina…uh, finale originally planned!
Vince originally wanted to kill off Skyler! However, in the end, it looked like Anna Gunn lucked out according to Vince:
"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. 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."
Can you imagine Flynn and Holly losing both their parents in one episode? That'd be too much…like Red Wedding levels of traumatizing!
We were already sad as is to see the series come to a close, but that would have made us bluer than Heisenberg's meth.
