The ‘Breaking Bad’ Alternative Ending You Didn’t See
A DVD extra from the “Breaking Bad: The Complete Series” DVD box set, out November 26 includes a different fate for Bryan Cranston’s Walter White.
Similar to the iconic ending of “Newhart” (which referenced the earlier The Bob Newhart Show), this alternate ending to the show itself imagines that the entire narrative of “Breaking Bad” was a dream experienced by Cranston’s previous character– Hal from the 2000-2006 Fox comedy “Malcolm in the Middle”.
It substituting fried Twinkies for Bob’s Japanese food. Waking up terrified from his nightmare, Cranston’s Hal remarks that he was “this meth dealer,” before being comforted by his wife, Lois (Jane Kaczmarek), who reminds him that he can’t cook anything, let alone meth, and that he’s definitely not married to a “tall, beautiful blonde” woman.
