We only just said goodbye to Breaking Bad, but already the pangs of withdrawal are beginning to set in. Though we've seen the last of Walt, Jesse and their mixed-up meth world, the brilliant actors behind the series will continue on in other projects — some are already back on the small screen! Find out where you can see your favourite Breaking Bad stars next.
Breaking Bad's finale aired last night after five seasons of the central character Walter White's ups and downs as a burgeoning meth kingpin in Albuquerque. We're rounding up the highlights from the big TV event, including Aaron Paul's hopes for what his character Jesse Pinkman will do next.
Breaking Bad is coming to an end today, and fans around the world are anxiously wondering how the series will come to an end. To shine some light on the upcoming finale, we've rounded up some of the most intriguing and realistic fan theories that are floating around online and broken them down to see what will actually take place today. Anything can happen, so leave your ideas in the comments!
Warning: if you aren't all caught up on Breaking Bad, there are major spoilers ahead.
Walt Will Die
One thing many of the popular theories have in common is that Walter White will die in the series finale. The question is how Walt will pass away. He has broken bad more than ever, seems to be at a very low point, is clearly quite sick, and has made many enemies.
Walt Will Go Out in a Blaze of Glory
One realistic theory is that Walt, armed with his guns and ricin, will bust into the Aryan Brotherhood's compound to take them all out in a violent blaze. Somehow during the destruction, Walt will be killed.
Why It Might Happen: While working the red carpet at the Emmys last week, Bryan Cranston hinted that there will be a lot of death in the episode. When asked if there is an opportunity for a sequel, Bryan said, "If we manage to survive the holocaust."
Why It Won't Happen: It just seems a little too obvious, doesn't it? Plus, Walt getting ahold of the ricin implies that he might not be taking a guns-blazing approach in his revenge run.
Walt Will Kill Himself
Another theory is that Walt will kill himself using the ricin from his bedroom, possibly when he starts to feel the walls closing in on him either by Uncle Jack's crew, the police, or some other force. He already knows he is dying, so why not control his own death?
Why It Might Happen: We know Walt has the ricin and he is controlling enough to want to be in charge of how he will go out.
Why It Might Not Happen: Ricin takes hours, if not days, to kill someone. Even if Walt did use it as a way out, he would be languishing for some time, so it wouldn't be a quick way out of a bind. And if he was going to kill himself, wouldn't he have done it already?
Walt Will Die From His Cancer
It seems like the most obvious, and least satisfying, end for Walt to die from his cancer. Walt may plan for his revenge, only to die, alone and disgraced, because of the illness that forced him into this mess in the first place.
Why It Might Happen: It would be the ultimate blow to Walt's ego if he was taken away by something beyond his, or anyone else's, control. Plus, wouldn't it be one final way to catch the audience off guard if they are prepared for Walt to get murdered or kill himself, only to have him die because of his cancer?
Why It Might Not Happen: Having Walt go out quietly would not be enjoyable for the audience. Despite Walt's descent into evil, we still want his death to mean something. Plus, dying from cancer is a long process, and he would presumably kill himself if he saw the end on the horizon.
From the underdog winning streak to the crazy after parties, the Emmy Awards certainly made for a memorable night in Hollywood. We've rounded up the best pictures from the evening, including quite a few moments you may not have seen during the telecast, like Sofia Vergara's sexy dance with Eric Stonestreet, Aaron Paul's photobomb of Bryan Cranston, Veep's winners Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Tony Hale basking in their victories, and more!
Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, and the rest of the cast of Breaking Bad had a lot to smile about at the Emmys this year. The guys didn't win any individual awards this year, but Anna Gunn joined their Emmys club with her statuette for outstanding supporting actress in a drama. Of course, the real icing on the cake was when Breaking Bad won the night's top honours with the award for outstanding drama series for the first time. Take a look back at their big night from the red carpet to the after parties.
Breaking Bad is back for its final chapter tonight, and you can see pictures of the episode right here. Walter White and Jesse Pinkman don't appear to be in a happy place in "Blood Money," which airs tonight on Showcase at 6:30 p.m. (and repeated at 10:30 p.m.). Check out all the pictures of them and Saul Goodman, plus heaps of desert-themed gallery shots of the whole cast, and let us know how you think this is all going to pan out for our favourite meth dealers.
It's time for the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour, and TV stars are already beginning to stop in for the fun. Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul took the stage together to talk about Breaking Bad's final season. Patrick Dempsey showed up to talk about racing at a Racing Le Mans panel, but mostly to charm us with his beautiful hair and smile. Meanwhile Lori Loughlin and Candace Cameron Bure serendipitously got together for a mini Full House reunion, just on the heels of the spectacular Jesse and the Rippers reunion performance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.
This is only just the beginning for the TCA Summer Tour, which goes on through next week with more and more stars rolling through. Check out all the stars who have showed up so far, and brace yourselves for the stars still to come!
The 2013 Emmy nominations were announced overnight, recognising the best shows and actors on TV.

He's just one of several stars who shared their reactions to the good news.

Bradley Cooper was in good spirits at the Independent Spirit Awards in Santa Monica, CA, today, sporting a stylish three-piece suit. The actor joined Bryan Cranston on the carpet for a pleasant exchange that had both actors laughing, then caught up with his Silver Linings Playbook co-star Chris Tucker. Their film is up for several big awards today, including best feature, best screenplay, and best actor for Bradley.
Silver Linings Playbook and Beasts of the Southern Wild are the only best feature nominees that are also up for a best picture Oscar tomorrow. Bradley is also in the running for the Academy's best actor award, and he'll face off with Daniel Day-Lewis, Hugh Jackman, Joaquin Phoenix, and Denzel Washington for the honour.
Ben Affleck premiered his Argo at the BFI London Film Festival last night. He was joined at the Odeon Leicester Square theatre by his leading men Bryan Cranston and John Goodman. Ben brought the thriller, which came in at the No. 2 spot at the US box office last weekend, to England after a stay in France with his wife, Jennifer Garner. Ben and Jen's romantic trip to Paris lasted only a few days, but they were able to fit in a shopping excursion to Chanel and even a romantic dinner date. The London Film Festival has also brought some Australian stars to England, including up-and-comer Alice Englert at the Ginger & Rosa premiere, and the stars of The Sapphires at their red carpet event.
