Breaking Bad’s Alternate Ending

An alternate ending to Breaking Bad has just surfaced on YouTube, in which Bryan Cranston’s Hal from Malcolm in the Middle wakes up during the night and describes his nightmare – the plot of Breaking Bad – to wife Lois (Jane Kaczmarek). The short clip also makes references to other pop culture artefacts – Hal tells Lois that Hank ‘looked like the guy from The Shield’, and she eventually tells him to ‘Go to sleep Scarface’.

Besides it being very cool that the actors took time to shoot this clip – and indulge fans of the extensively circulated thought to relate Breaking Bad’s ending with Malcolm in the Middle – it also adds an intertextual layer to both shows: forever connecting one with the other.
