Aaron Paul Talks about His Reaction to the Final Eight Episodes of BREAKING BAD

     June 28, 2013


This August, TV’s best drama will begin to come to a close.  The final eight episodes of Breaking Bad are coming, and we can only hope that creator Vince Gilligan sticks the landing because he certainly has the cast to make it happen.  While there are plenty of great supporting characters, the show has always rested on Walt (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse (Aaron Paul), and it’s a great credit to Paul that he can hold his own against his more experienced co-star.  Gilligan originally intended to kill Jesse off in the first season, but the show probably wouldn’t be half as good without him.  He’s the remaining voice of conscience among the criminals—the person who is affected by almost every single death, and wants to see himself as the bad guy even though deep down there’s goodness in him.

So what does Paul think about the way the show will end?  Obviously, he didn’t go into any detail, but he did comment on his reaction to the series’ conclusion.  Hit the jump for what he had to say.  Breaking Bad will return for its final episodes on August 11th.

While talking to Paul recently, Steve asked the actor, “What is it like for you knowing the end of a show that all of us love?  Is it weird walking around knowing all the secrets and not being able to say anything?”  Paul replied:

It’s great.  I don’t have a problem not telling people because I don’t want to ruin it for anybody.  Everyone asks me, but they don’t really want to know, and I know that.  It’s not that big of a deal.  Before I read the final eight episodes, the final eight hours of the show, I was thinking to myself, ‘This is so tragic.  I can’t believe this show is ending.’ I didn’t want it to end.  But after knowing how the final eight hours play out, I couldn’t be happier with the way that it ended.  Hopefully, you all agree, and I feel pretty confident you will agree.
