These are just my guesses.What happens to Skyler?
Well we don't know but we can guess. There was a case against her but she wasn't in jail. They probably had all the evidence they were going to get against her, but Walt left that message about how he was forcing her to do it the whole time. If I had to guess she probably got a plea bargain and is on probation or something. She doesn't have any of the money or the fronts anymore I would guess and is basically starting over with nothing. The message that all Walt did in the end HURT his family, should be pretty obvious.
Whether his kids ever get that trust fund he left with the Gray Matter folks or whether they turn it over to the cops the moment he walks out is up for speculation. I kind of want that one both ways. Walt was a monster, he was evil, but as much as I don't want anyone to gain from what he did, I don't want it to hurt his family so much either. Skyler was hardly innocent (and I really didn't like her as a character which doesn't help) but Walt Jr. and Holly didn't have jack to do with it, and Walt Jr. screaming at Walt in the phone call is what Skyler should have done the moment she found out.
Of course Walt Jr. was supposed to get dismembered at the end of Season 1 originally so.....maybe nobody was ever supposed to call Walt out on how much he hurts everyone. What happens to Saul Goodman?
He's managing a Cinnabon in Oklahoma.
Nah, I'm pretty sure he's fine. He's got tons of resources and no morality and unlike Walt is not too proud to actually stick to his new identity. I bet he's doing pretty decent. Also we may find out in the spin off Better Call Saul
which I'm sort of looking forward to, although it may be all before he meets Walt. Still, I think Saul's the kind of guy who is quick to lower his expectations and I imagine he's pretty happy with whatever he's got going on. He probably isn't going to have anything to do with any drug dealers anytime soon though! But my most pressing question is what happens to Jesse Pinkman? I want him to have a happy life so badly, because he seemed like a relatively nice person. (And he was very cute. >_> )
I, yeah, pretty much me too exactly. I was disappointed he didn't get an epilogue. In his last moments though, he's free. I like to imagine it stayed that way. And its not just being free of the Nazis, he's free of Walt. And in the end he didn't pull the trigger, he was the better guy (he was always the better guy, but this should prove it to him at least).
The series creator actually answered this in an interview:“My personal feeling is that he got away,” Gilligan told the magazine. “But the most likely thing, as negative as this sounds, is that they’re going to find this kid’s fingerprints all over this lab and they’re going to find him within a day or a week or a month.
“And he’s still going to be on the hook for the murder of two federal agents,” he continued. “But yeah, even though that’s the most likely outcome, the way I see it is that he got away and got to Alaska, changed his name, and had a new life. You want that for the kid. He deserves it.”
I would love to imagine Jesse in Alaska, spending his time by himself or working with kids, dating a nice local girl that gets him the way Jane did. Although letting Jane die was the first thing Walt did that made me really hate him.
As far as being under duress. Well, I mean, sort of but probably not really. There were some things that Walt definitely threatened him about, but a lot of it Jesse only really agreed to do because he was part of the whole scheme too. He tried to quit a lot, had really obvious problems with a lot of the stuff people did, but ultimately he never really walked away. I mean he has a shot I guess but...it's pretty iffy. I mean even Skyler isn't going to walk away scott free here, I very much doubt Jesse gets away with anything. Especially murdering Gail, Walt wasn't even there at the time, hard to say a guy forced you to do something from the other side of town.
I don't see Jesse as the type that would want to go to prison. He wants to give all his money to the people he hurt, he wants to try to fix what he did wrong. Him going to prison doesn't fix anything. He's really not a danger on his own. I can see him selling all he can of what he has left (although I'm not sure how he does with without Saul) and giving all the money to the people he hurt and their families (or trying to), but I don't see him surrendering. He's finally FREE in the last moment we see him, he isn't going to give that up, and he shouldn't!
