YouTuber Grable424 submitted the below video to an editing competition, and it doesn’t matter if it was the winning submission or not, because it’s one of the greatest fan produced Breaking Bad retrospectives of all-time.
The video details the tumultuous relationship between Walt and Jesse, but does so more from Jesse’s perspective, and it’s very touching. I’ve always considered the two characters to be symbiotic and used to blame Jesse’s lot in life on his own choices, but after watching the series again last spring, I do now see that Walt is mostly to blame for Jesse’s downfall into hell. Although, Jesse is the reason Walt got back into the meth game after he quit, so like the chicken and the egg conundrum, Breaking Bad’s two leads definitely warrant the same type of philosophical debate.
There are a bunch of SPOILERS, so you should only watch if you’ve seen the entire series.
