Vince Gilligan Cried Writing the End of Breaking Bad

Writer Vince Gilligan accepts the Writers Guild Award for Drama Series onstage during the 2013 WGAw Writers Guild Awards at JW Marriott Los Angeles at L.A. LIVE on February 17, 2013 in Los Angeles, California.

We hate to constantly remind you of sad news, but Breaking Bad is almost over. (Well, first it has to start back up again. But then it will end, as all things do, to everything there is a season, sunrise, sunset, etc.) And if it's bumming you out, take heart: It's bumming out creator Vince Gilligan, too. "I haven't told my crew this," he tells THR. "I actually cried writing the end – 'The end' on the last episode," he says. Oh god, it's really happening.
