Do you think the show Breaking Bad could survive if Jesse got killed at the end of this season?
AMC (ended 2013)
All the characters on Breaking Bad are damaged goods, to some extent. While everyone else tries to maintain control, Jesse is volatile. He's not very bright, and really doesn't care. Kind of like the Joker in a deck of cards. The show needs him.
They could possibly make it work considering the loss to Walt would be huge. But down the line, i think viewers will miss their chemistry (yeah its a pun but i couldnt put it in a better way). I like that they are giving more screen time to other characters like Walt's lawyer, but Jesse is too important to kill off.
If I had to guess I'd say no, they won't kill him off, but if they do so be it. The show could definitely go 4 seasons and finish up and I'd be quite content. He's integral in a lot of ways because of the dynamic he brings out of Walter, but based upon Walt's recent behavior that could change.
I don't think they will kill him. I mean. Now he's in deep trouble. The only way I see that could get him out of trouble is by killing Gus...right?.
And Gus...is like he have chains on Walter and the show might get boring...Now is OK. But I really don't see him another season. Cooking in a safe place and getting paid without getting in too much trouble ain't fun to watch.
So i don't think they'll kill Jesse.
Skyler now knows Walt's secret. She wants to help him laundry the money he earned by cooking and she seems to be acepting more and more each day about her husband being a meth cooker. My point is that the writters might kill him off and made Skyler the new Jesse. I don't know if that would work, but in my head sounds interesting.
The Walter/Jesse dynamic makes the show. It wouldn't be the same without him. They won't kill him, of course.
Yeah, the show needs them. The only people that could die would really be Walt Jr, Skylar, Hank & Marie. Mainly Walt Jr and Marie.
Skylar: Most likely won't die as they are setting it up for next season when she helps Walt.
Hank: Already almost died, and is now recovering/recovered. Probably won't try to kill him anymore.
Walt Jr: Hasn't really moved along any real plot lines. And if he did die, it would create some great TV. Think how pissed everyone would be.
Marie: She hasn't really done much, but I guess more than Walt Jr. I guess if she died, people would be mad, but killing Walt Jr would be MUCH more intense and since Walt Jr is the smallest "main" character on the show it is really a win win
Not losing much, and gaining a great emotional period of episodes.
