Walter White And Jesse Pinkman Make A Return
After Breaking Bad, El Kamino and spin-off Better Call Saul, fans are still excited to see the characters reprise. Super Bowl ad this year has made it possible.
We know very well, people hosting Super Bowl parties are there for the commercials too. Companies have found ways to make adverts exciting and they prepare long for some releases with working experiments for football fans and celebrity revivals. PopCorners, a snack-chip making company, put out the ad during Super Bowl commercials featuring the unforgettable characters – Walter White, Jesse Pinkman and Tuco Salamanca from the hit TV show Breaking Bad, and this time they are not upto making Crystal Meth in their RV – The Krystal Ship, but are making PopCorners crunchy non-fried chips.
Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul made this reunion and the ad is already on the top of the list of Super Bowl commercials this year.
It seems like we are watching Breaking Bad again, with everything – the characters, setting and all pitch-perfect signature dialogues – but just the product has changed. The last season has been off the air for more than a decade now, and we still don't want to believe – two of the three characters were dead in the series. In this light, when this commercial is being remembered by millions, let's look at some of the iconic scenes from Breaking Bad, featuring our own – the smart and brutal chemist Heisenberg and his ally Jesse Pinkman.
1. 4 Days Out
In the ninth episode of the S2 of Breaking Bad, in '4 Days Out' the duo is stranded in the desert. They want to finish cooking crystal meth but things tangle.
Believing that he has little time left, Walter White convinces Jesse on the false pretext that their methylamine is spoiling and must be fast put to use. They arrive at their cook site – the middle of a desert – and in just two days cook 42 pounds of meth before the jubilation is cut short when their generator is out of gas. RV is out of battery too but coming out of blood-coughing Walt's frustration, they find a way to jump-start their vehicle.
This episode establishes a bond between the characters. Though Walt thinks he won't be around soon, Jesse proves that they can trust each other to share the money for their crystal meth. At the end of this episode, we find more connected to the partners in crime, meanwhile, Walt's personality becomes sharper from this point.
2. One Minute
In the seventh episode of the S3 of Breaking Bad, in "One Minute" Walter and Jesse confront each other. However, shrewd Walter pacifies Jesse to the partnership.
Hank is tricked into believing that his wife is in the hospital and he takes his revenge on Jesse by beating him up. In the hospital, when Saul and Walter visit Jesse – Jesse who is now not a part of the Super Lab run by Gus Fring – commits that he will retaliate against Hank and work on his own to make meth. Jesse rejects Walter's proposal to be his partner saying he is not interested to work with him anymore and also threats to give him to DEA if Walter or Saul come in his way.
Critics have called this episode a Masterpiece. When Walter says to Jesse: "Your meth is good, Jesse. As good as mine." things get a turnaround. We immediately know the partners are not going to part away this easily and this soon.
3. End Times
In the twelfth episode of the S4 of Breaking Bad, in "End Times" Jesse and Walt come together against Gus. And, Walter plays a nasty trick on Jesse's innocence.
Directed by the creator of the series, Vince Gilligan, the performance on this episode garnered Aaron Paul, who played Jesse Pinkman in the series, Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series. Walter and Gus want to pull off each other's death, however, using a child and Jesse's love for him, Walter is able to mold Jesse's mind and bring him as his aid in killing Gus. Over the series, we see how Walter transforms into a narcissist for his benefit, and even brings Jesse – who points a gun at him at this point – down almost treacherously.
The tension escalates in this series as the gentlemen drug lord Gus Fring wants to finish Walter but wants to operate his Super Meth Lab using Jesse, who wouldn't want any harm to his former partner. The relationship between the duo walks on a tightrope, still, we see some kind of balance keeping them alive.
In this ninth episode of the S4 of the American television drama series Breaking Bad, betrayals come to the surface. And, the partners get into combat.
Gus Fring wants Jesse to be his frontman to lead the cartel for him and go to Mexico to teach others how to cook blue Meth. Jesse is in desperate need of Walter's help or moreover, his formula, but Walter feels betrayed when Jesse loses his chance to poison Gus and even lies that he visited his place. The violent confrontation starts when Walter reveals that Jesse had been tracked by GPS, which ends in Jesse getting the upper hand and bloodily beating Walter.
Coming a long way in the series, the audience expected this – tension escalating and personal ways conflicting with each other. We know, Jesse doesn't want Gus to kill Walter, but Jesse too has a mind of his own to drive the story his way – this episode strengthened the character of Jesse Pinkman.
"Felina" is the grand finale of the hit drama series Breaking Bad, and this brings a 13 hours story to an end. And, we'll say a farewell to our Heisenberg here.
Walter White has escaped his hunt but he still has scores to settle – especially with White Power Prison Gang led by Jack, who had killed Hank. Before killing all the members of Jack's Gang, Walter makes it sure that his family gets the money. Freeing Jesse from the captivity of Jack's Meth Lab, Walter, in the process of getting rid of all of his enemies, gets a fatal injury that leads to his death.
This finale act of the series has been hailed as one of the most successful endings by critics and audiences alike, as it calms all the conflicts at the cost of the death of Walter White – an Anti-Hero of the series.
Breaking Bad is one of the most loved series by fans all over the world. Super Bowl ad reprising the main characters from the series was the smartest move; just like what Walter White's alter-ego Heisenberg would have done to get things work!
