However, this recent mugshot from the Galesburg Police Department would appear to suggest otherwise, as dear ol’ goodie-turned0baddie Heisenberg is alive and well, doing the same dirty business he’s been known for for years.
The Galesburg Police Department have released a mugshot via their Facebook page which shows a man wanted for a parole violation in relation to meth possession, and well, you take a look at him.
Walt’s on the run!
According to police reports, the man in question is actually Todd W. Barrick Jr, not the infamous chemistry teacher. However, with that classic bald head and goatee combo you’d be forgiven for thinking it was our beloved antihero.
Needless to say, social media caught wind of this mugshot and said what we were all thinking.
One person said: “Heisenberg is alive!”
Another wrote: “This new Breaking Bad movie looks like it sucks!”
Other users even gave some suggestions to police on how to find Barrick Jr.
“Have you tried Albuquerque? Perhaps at Los Pollos Hermanos?” one person joked.
Of course, this comes at a time when Breaking Bad is hot in the news, especially after the trailer for the Netflix film recently dropped.
The trailer suggests that the movie follows Jesse’s escape from captivity, with Skinny Pete refusing to tell police what he knows in regards to Pinkman’s whereabouts.
From the trailer and what Aaron Paul has said, we can only guess that this movie is more about Jesse Pinkman’s life, and how he is going to fare without Walt, rather than focusing on the volatile relationship between the two.
Shortly after the trailer was released, Aaron Paul tweeted about what to expect from the movie, hinting that there’s one scene in particular viewers should re-watch before seeing the film.
He tweeted, alongside a video of the scene in question:
‘Cats out of the bag…and the bag is in the river. Here’s a moment from Breaking Bad to slowly prepare you all for what’s to come.’
The scene Paul is referring to comes from the episode One Minute, aka season 3, episode 7.
During the episode, Jesse is brutally beaten by Hank Schrader for trying to sue the DEA to get the government off his back.
When Walter White visits him in the hospital to offer him a partnership in their drug cooking business, Jesse goes off on one about how meeting Heisenberg has destroyed his life.
This is what Jesse says during the scene:
“Ever since I met you, everything I ever cared about is gone, ruined, turned to sh*t, dead. Ever since I hooked up with the great Heisenburg. I have never been more alone”.
Is anyone else massively unenthusiastic about this film? I just don’t care about it – the show finished so long ago I’ve lost any attachment I once had to the characters.
Having said that I will no doubt lose my marbles should Walt make an appearance.
