Aaron Paul Releases 'Breaking Bad' Teaser Photo of Jesse Pinkman Once Again Donning a Yellow Lab Suit
‘El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie,’ which somehow managed to film entirely in secret, is exactly one month and two days away from being released on Netflix, which means that fans of the series will inevitably be treated to delicious little morsels of promotion on a near-daily basis from here on out.
First, Bob Odenkirk dropped a (likely strategic) bombshell on The Hollywood Reporter, revealing that the entire filming and post-production process had already been completed. Next, Netflix dropped a teaser trailer revealing a release date of October 11th. Now, Aaron Paul dropped a teaser photo on his Instagram page which shows Jesse Pinkman once again donning one of the infamous yellow lab suits he and Walter White used while cooking up some of that sweet crystal blue persuasion.
At least one report speculates that the image may be from Season 3 and fans certainly expect the movie to feature flashbacks. However, Jesse had shaggy hair throughout the first three seasons. In Season 4, Jesse indeed sported a buzz cut similar to the one in the photo, but he and Walter wore orange jumpsuits while cooking in Gus’s lab. In Season 5A, Jesse had a buzz cut AND the duo wore the same style yellow lab suits as shown in the photo, but they were using houses shrouded in fumigation tents for their cooks at the time, not a warehouse. By Season 5B, Jesse was once again looking like Shaggy.
So is the photo just a cheeky bit of foreplay from a previously unseen flashback, or is Jesse Pinkman once again cooking meth in his own private domicile refusing to be harassed? Fortunately for fans of one of the greatest series in television history, there isn’t a very long wait to find out.
