Amazing Breaking Bad Alternate Ending Leaks Online

Submitted by on November 19, 2013 – 10:05 amOne Comment

While fans were sorry to see Breaking Bad go, reactions to its finale were pretty universally positive. Just as some had called Bad the best television show of all time, many were saying the ending was equally satisfying. But that hasn’t stopped star Bryan Cranston and an old friend from coming up with an alternative.

In a video posted online, Cranston appears with his former Malcolm in the Middle co-star Jane Kaczmarek, in a three-minute clip that suggests Breaking Bad was all a dream in the mind of Cranston’s character from the popular sitcom that ran from 2000-2006. Cranston wakes up in bed as Hal, his character from Malcolm, next to Kaczmarek, who played his wife Lois. He then tearfully (and hilariously) describes his vision of himself as a murderous meth dealer, who encounters a cop who “looks like the guy from The Shield,” and a little “man-child” who uses “The B word” a lot.

The whole scene is a reference to the famous ending of the series Newhart, which showed protagonist Bob Newhart waking up in bed with the actress who played his wife in his earlier TV Series, The Bob Newhart Show.

But Cranston’s scene contained some Breaking Bad in-jokes too, including a racy “I am the one who knocks” euphemism, and a final shot of that iconic black hat.

The scene is reportedly meant to be an extra on the upcoming Breaking Bad complete series DVDs. Sony has taken down the clip, but not before it was posted in several other locations.
