Wait, what?! Breaking Bad's millions of rabid fans have three weeks to go before the September 29 series finale of the beloved, acclaimed AMC series. Elaborate theories abound about what might befall the intense, dark drama's core characters — and star Aaron Paul apparently loves a good (and sexy!) tease.
The Emmy-winning actor, who plays the tortured burnout-turned-meth-maker Jesse Pinkman on the show, took to his Instagram account on the afternoon of Friday, Sept. 13 to share a completely unexpected photo involving two of his costars. "*Spoiler Alert #BreakingBad," reads the caption for the black and white photo — in which a shirtless Paul, 34, sits up in a bed alongside a similarly topless Bryan Cranston and a covered-up Anna Gunn. Paul stares into the camera with an anguished, confused expression as Cranston, 57, dozes and Gunn, 45, smiles knowingly.
A threesome between Pinkman and chem-teacher-turned-meth-lord Walter White (Cranston) and his angry, complicit wife Skyler (Gunn) is definitely not a plot point any Breaking Bad aficianados would see coming — although it could, perhaps, but a dream sequence.
Or it could just be a Paul/Pinkman prank!
Actual spoiler alert: Do not read below if you're not caught up on current episodes!
On the Sept. 8 episode, the fate of both Walter and Jesse was left dangling as both men — former colleagues in the meth-making enterprise who'd since turned on one another, with a complicated emotional dynamic to boot — were seen in the midst of a desert shootout.
