While Vince Gilligan is surely tempted to end every episode of Better Call Saul with his characters standing around asking “Where’s Walter White?” he’s somehow resisted, and the show has been better off for it. Still, Albuquerque is a small town, and it’s likely that Jimmy will run into Heisenberg at the door-knocker store at some point. Probably not in Season 2, but soon.
Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan has confirmed that his anti-hero, Walter White, will make an appearance on the AMC show’s spinoff, Better Call Saul.
“It would be great to see Walter White on Better Call Saul,” Gilligan told the Daily News. “It would be a shame if the show had its run — hopefully a very long run — and he never appeared. I have to be coy…All of the wonderful characters who may eventually appear on Better Call Saul will appear when it is most organic and fitting to the storytelling of Better Call Saul and also when we can work out scheduling issues with actors,” he said.
“I would love to see that personally.” (Via New York Daily News)
The funny thing about being the creator of a show is: You can do that. If you want Walter White to show up, or have Mike become a circus clown, or give Jimmy a fetching new hat, or see how Kim Wexler would do as a professional dune-buggy racer, you can, because you’re their God. Absolute power corrupts absolutely and turns lawyers into dune-buggy racers.
