It’s been almost six years since Breaking Bad was filmed, but fans haven’t stopped thinking about the award-winning crime drama. What exactly happened to Walter White in the series finale? What is the backstory of Gus Fringe? And what did the Jessie Pinkman doodle mean?
While Vince Gilligan’s new Breaking Bad movie El Camino provides definitive answers to at least one of these questions, these fan theories provide some alternative answers, even if they break the boundaries of logic and sanctity along the way. Read on to discover Walt’s surprising source of cancer diagnosis and why pink is always bad news.

1. WALTER WHITE PICK UP TRAITS FROM THE PEOPLE HE KILLS
Walter White is an unpredictable man, but strangely consistent in one thing: after killing someone, he copies him. Remember how Crazy-8 loved his sandwiches without the crust? After killing Walt, he begins eating rindless PB&JS. Walt also picked up Mike Ehrmantrut’s drink order and Gus Fringe’s car, leaving many fans wondering if Walt steals personal characteristics from the people he kills.
2. GUS FRING WORKED FOR THE CIA.
Who was Gush Fringe before he became the ruthless leader of a meth / fried chicken empire? By the way, we know it is from Chile. We also know that all the records of your time are gone. And we know that Don Aldeo, the cartel boss, refused to kill him when he had the opportunity. Since Don Eladio has no qualms about ending the competition, Gus must have some form of protection. Could it be from the United States government? A detailed theory from Reddit suggests that Gus was once a Chilean aristocrat who helped the CIA establish dictator Augusto Pinochet in power.
3. MADRIGAL BUILT DEFECTIVE AIR FILTER THAT GAVE WALTER WHITE CANCER
Madrigal Electromotive is a corporation with diverse interests. The German parent company of Los Polos Hermannos shipping, fast food, and industrial equipment … including air filters. According to a fan theory, Gray Matter, the company that Walter White partnered with Elliott Schwartz, bought and installed defective Madrigal air filters while Walt was still working at the company. The filter eventually caused Walt’s lung cancer, propelled him into the illicit drug trade, and eventually into the Madrigal trade.
4. COLOUR IS A CRUCIAL ELEMENT IN THE SERIES
The color is a code from Breaking Bad. When a character chooses the voice, they usually undergo something (eg, JC) or chemo (vault). Your wardrobe may get darker as your stories become skewed, as Mary drew her trademark from purple to black while in protective custody. Also, death is caused by pink posters, whether it’s on a teddy bear or a Saul Goodman button-up shirt.
5. BREAKING BAD AND THE WALKING DEAD EXIST IN THE SAME WORLD.
Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead aired on AMC, but according to fans, they don’t have it all. There is a large body of evidence linking the two programs, and one of the most important links is Blue Sky. Bad and Jessie have business cards in the single-colored crystal meth holder, but it’s also Merle Dixon’s drug of choice on The Walking Dead. Coincidentally, his drug dealer (“a white kid” he calls “bitch”) sounds like Jessie.
