Walter White's story may have ended, but Jesse Pinkman's continues in El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie. Shortly after its world premiere on streaming service Netflix, fans of the original Breaking Bad series and the critics alike have nothing but well-reception and positive feedback. Now, let us take a look back on some of the most unforgettable and remarkable moments in this sequel to Breaking Bad. (WARNING: This list contains spoilers!)
El Camino; A Breaking Bad Movie took a deeper look at the relationship between Todd Alquist and Jesse Pinkman in a flashback scene. Jesse made an accomplice in disposing of the body of Todd's cleaning lady. However, Jesse finds a gun and the exchange afterward is compelling. Both knowing that escape is now out from the options, the two avoided hostilities. The scene ended in an unlikely embrace.
When Jesse went to Kandy Welding Corporation, he was reminded of how he previously knew Neil. Neil was hired by the white supremacists to build a warehouse contraption so that Jesse could move around and cook meth, while restrained without any chance to escape. To make matters worse, Neil and Kenny bet on whether Jesse can break free. This entire experience of Jesse is hard to watch but is a great reminder of the hell that he survived.
Jesse's biggest loss in his life was probably his one great love, Jane Margolis. His landlord, neighbor, and eventual lover was recovering from addiction when they meet. Unfortunately, her relapse ends fatally. In this movie, Jesse, while driving his way to Alaska, thinks back of the words that Jane was shared with him in a flashback. Jesse has seemingly, and finally taken Janes advice to heart. He appears committed to living his life deliberately and with purpose.
After his time in captivity, Jesse only wanted to have a fresh start (which is easier said than done). Ed Galbraith, also known as The Disappearer, isn't sentimental but shows Jesse support in his own, quiet, way. In one part of El Camino, Galbraith promised to deliver a for Jesse. The letter was addressed to Brock, the boy who became orphaned due to Jesse's criminal ties. Although the content of the letter was unknown, the fact that Jesse overcame his guilt and shame to reach out to the kid says enough.
Aaron Paul did was lauded for his amazing portrayal of Jesse Pinkman, who suffers from an apparent post-traumatic stress disorder because of his past. Though not directly identified in the film, it was clearly seen in the scene when he first woke up at Skinny Pete and Badger. He jumped out and tore all the blinds because of his confusion by his surroundings. Jesse even pointed a gun to Pete and Badger when the two came up to investigate.
Apparently, Jesse already met the "fake cop" before their interaction in the first part of the film. It was Neil, one of the welders who did work for the white supremacists in line with Jesse's captivity. However, Jesse doesn't hold a grudge. In the film, Jesse agrees to a three-way split of the money that he found in the refrigerator with the fake cops. Neil, high on drugs, asked for a shootout for the money, à la western film.
Walter White, who escaped death many times during the course of the Breaking Bad series, died in its finale which left the fans in disbelief. However, he seemed to have resurrected in El Camino, in the form of a flashback. The scene takes place in the early days of Walt and Jesse's unlikely partnership, talking Jesse into continuing his studies. Though it seems that Walter has high hopes for Jesse and his potential, it has also reminded the audience of how little he thought of Jesse's life up to now.
Jesse was last seen in Breaking Bad fleeing from the scene of Walt's massacre of Jack's gang. In this film, he's seen knocking on the door of Skinny Pete and Badger. When Jesse's plan goes sideways because of LoJack, Pete came to the rescue. He gave Jesse money, plotted a car swap, and gave his beanie, making up for an unexpected sentimental farewell.
