Trailer for Breaking Bad movie El Camino

Aaron Paul has revealed which Breaking Bad scene people should revisit ahead of new Netflix film El Camino.

The actor will return as Jesse Pinkman next month for a film that’s set to show what happened to the character following the climax of Vince Gilligan’s hit TV drama.

In preparation, Paul has pinpointed a particularly heartbreaking scene, writing on Twitter: “Here’s a moment from Breaking Bad to slowly prepare you all for what’s to come.”

The scene in question shows Walter White (Bryan Cranston) at his most manipulative. It occurs in the third season’s seventh episode, titled “One Minute”, and shows Jesse – battered and bruised in hospital – breaking down in tears.

“What do you even care?” he asks his meth-cooking partner.” As long as you get what you want, right? You don’t give a s*** about me. You said I was no good. I’m nothing. Why would you want me? You said my meth is inferior, right? You said my cook was garbage!”

To this, Walter turns around and says: “Your meth is good, Jesse. As good as mine.”

It’s one of the best-acted scenes in season three – and going by the turmoil suffered by Jesse, it doesn’t seem the character is in for a nice time in the new film.

In the teaser trailer, Jesse’s friend and former colleague Skinny Pete (Charles Baker) is seen being interrogated about Jesse’s whereabouts.

Bryan Cranston, who starred as Walter White in Breaking Bad, has teased a possible appearance in the movie, while also commenting on what he hopes will happen to Jesse in the film.

El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie will be available to stream on Netflix from 11 October.
