How Will 'Breaking Bad' End?

We're just days away from the Breaking Bad Season 5 Part 2 premiere, which means we're just days away from theorizing about every inch of every frame of the critically acclaimed AMC drama. After all, what will happen at the end of the series has been kept as under wraps as Walt's second life as a meth kingpin. But what theories are circulating the net about the end? Read on to find out how Breaking Bad might close its final chapter, and then start creating your own crazy theory. Images: AMC

Walt Will Murder Skyler

One astute Breaking Bad viewer points out that Walt takes on characteristics of those he kills. (Making him 2013's answer to Heroes' big bad Sylar?) Krazy 8 cut the ends off his sandwiches; Walt started doing so after strangling him. Gus drove a Volvo; Walt started doing so after blowing him up. So does that mean we should worry about Skyler, having learned in Season 5 Part 1 that Walt will begin using her maiden name in the future, when he's hiding both his identity and a machine gun in his trunk? Yes. Yes, I think we should.

Things Will Get Bad When Walt Wears Green

Green might be the color of envy, but, in Walt's case, it might be the color of death. It's at least an important one for the meth kingpin, considering he wore it when almost killing himself in Breaking Bad's pilot, right after killing Gus, and in the Denny's where he's on the run from... someone. Dustin Rowles at Uproxx notes the color typically corresponds with a battle with someone — police, Gus, and a mystery subject in the future. One thing's for sure: When Walt's wearing green, we'll likely see a lot of red.

Walt Will Die of Cancer

It seemed pretty obvious from the flash-forward scenes — see the mysterious pills Walt popped in the Denny's bathroom. And what better way to wrap up Breaking Bad than to prove all of Walt's attempts to save his family and make millions was for naught?

What Goes Around Will Come Around

Quite literally. One fan predicts the final season in Season 5 Part 2 could see Walt right back where he began, by an RV in the middle of the desert, begging his family for forgiveness as sirens blare in the distance. This time, though, they would actually be coming for him.

Walt Will Get Away With It

But how, now that Hank knows Heisenberg's true identity? Well, fans might remember the police officer accepted what he thought was Walt's lottery winnings to help pay for physical therapy. Hoping to keep from implicating himself, Hank could stay quiet, helping Walt continue to collect millions to help his family survive after he dies — whether that's of cancer or by someone else's hand.

Walt Will Start Working for the Good Guys

One viewer has pointed out what looks like a wire on Walt's person during his future Denny's scenes. Now, we could in fact be seeing Bryan Cranston's microphone, but Walt's changed identity — and Hank's knowledge of who he is — could mean the former family man has decided to start working for the DEA. But what would lead him to stray from his dreams of becoming as big as Grey Matter? The murder of Breaking Bad's most innocent character of all: Holly. After all, Dean Norris, appearing on NPR, teased a "chilling scene involving that baby" during Season 5.

Jesse Will Kill Walt

Another popular theory sees Jesse as the one murdering Walt. But only after he finds out Walt was not only the man who poisoned young Brock, but also responsible for Jesse's girlfriend, Jane, dying of an overdose. After all, Jesse's already killed once, when he was forced to take down Gale. Then again, if there's anything he likes less than Walt, it's pulling the trigger.

Holly Will End Up in a Happy Home

Hank and Marie have already proven they could be good parents to baby Holly, so it's natural to assume they might end up getting custody of the infant after either her parents die, or are arrested by authorities. Or maybe Marie will simply shoplift Holly?

Walt Will Become Hal

One of the most entertaining theories to hit the Web predicts Walt, forced to work for the DEA in order to bring down the rest of the drug world, goes into witness protection and becomes... a suburban dad named Hal. Meaning that, yes, Breaking Bad was a prequel to Bryan Cranston's Malcolm in the Middle all along. Image: FOX

Walt Will Kill Himself

Though Walt neglected to do so in Breaking Bad's pilot, some feel the character's guilt might lead him to actually pull the trigger this time. So long as his suicide becomes a suicide mission, bringing down plenty of others with him.

Walter White Will Become Tio Salamanca

My prediction for the finale of Breaking Bad? Walt suffers the worst fate imaginable: He loses his family, and control of his drug empire. How? After his family is killed, Walt, riddled with a terminal illness, becomes weaker and weaker until he's relegated to nothing more than a wheelchair (with a bell attached) to communicate with Todd and other lesser meth businessmen. Walt wants you to remember his name — but he would hardly want anyone to remember him as a man unable to do anything at all.
