These Breaking BadThe Walking Dead Shared-Universe Theories Are Sure to Make You Go ‘Huh’

Things have been pretty grim on The Walking Dead lately, so to lighten the load, how about some wildly speculative fan theories? Netflix put a host of them together in a neat video that makes the case for a The Walking Dead–Breaking Bad shared universe. Now if you’re thinking, Hm, that seems nebulously plausible in a difficult-to-disprove sense but also not that likely in a hard-to-affirmatively-prove sense, you’d be about right.

Uncover your pushpin-covered conspiracy cork board, and watch above.
