‘Breaking Bad’ season 5: Bryan Cranston says finale safe after script theft

Breaking BadWith just a few months remaining now until “Breaking Bad” returns to AMC on Sunday, August 11, it appears as though the secret surrounding how the show ends is still safe. If you recall recently, there was an incident in which some scripts of the show were snatched away from the actor while they were inside of his car, but we’re now hearing that the real story was slightly different than what was originally reported.

Speaking per CNN at the White House Correspondents Dinner on Saturday, Cranston claims that what was actually snatched from him was an iPad containing two episodes of the AMC series, but thanks to the power of technology, they were destroyed before anything could happen with them:

“In this world of electronic incredible ability, [the ‘Breaking Bad’ production team] went into my stolen iPad, with my permission, and erased the scripts that were on it … Just those two.”

While Cranston and many of his co-stars have spoken out about filming and saying goodbye to New Mexico (where the show was set for so many years), they have managed to keep literally everything about the show’s upcoming storyline completely under wraps. All we know is that the show is going to pick up after Hank discovered the copy of “Leaves of Grass” that is literally going to cause everything to unravel for Walter White. We’ve seen a brief look into the future, but so far that is really it.

What do you want to see happen over the course of the series’ final episodes? If you want to hear what Cranston also had to say about the “Better Call Saul” spin-off idea that has been tossed around as of late, be sure to check out the story over at the link here.
