The Desolation of Heisenberg

Okay, probably the last BREAKING BAD entry for a while, non-fans.

Here's a Times Arts Beat Q&A with Vince Gilligan.

More interesting, IMHO, is the Rolling Stone Q&A with Gilligan, which complements the larger Rolling Stone BREAKING BAD article I linked to the other day. Here's an excerpt [SPOILER IF YOU HAVEN'T WATCHED THE SEASON]:
Bryan Cranston mentioned that he asked you a bunch of questions about the flash-forward. When he asked, "Why am I back?" you told him, "To protect someone." Is that an answer that you're gonna stick with?

I wouldn't shy away from sticking with that, just because it's been in print, but we really are – we're questioning everything at this point. It doesn't give me great pause to have that out there. But having said that, we're not, at this point, afraid to change it, either. Our prime directive here – our mandate – is to make the ending as satisfying and as dramatic as possible. To that end, we've got a lot of good ideas, I feel, but any minute that a better idea comes along, we'll jettison the good idea for the better idea, no matter where it may take us. So could go either way. Could wind up being exactly that, or could be something different.
Worth reading the full Q&A at RS.

(Yes, I spent more time creating the GIF than actually composing this entry.)
