Remember the Breaking Bad finale? It was a few months ago, yet hardly a day has gone by without some reference to it or another. And now it's time for today's! Vince Gilligan tells Entertainment Weekly that he considered ending the show with a lot more carnage. "In those final months and weeks of breaking the end of the Breaking Bad story, anything and everything was fair game and open for discussion," Gilligan says. "But the more we talked about it, the more we thought, 'You know, we don’t necessarily want the end of this series to be a bloodbath.' At one point, we talked about killing off every major character, and one particularly dark week along the way we talked about killing everybody — having some sort of Wild Bunch bloodbath of an ending." Gilligan et al eventually decided not to kill everyone. Just some people. RIP, Hank.
