'Breaking Bad' creator on Jesse Pinkman's fate

Vince Gilligan hasn't broken all the way "Bad."

When it comes to the fate of Jesse Pinkman from his acclaimed AMC drama "Breaking Bad"– which just ended its run in September after five explosive seasons - the series' creator wants to go against the obvious and believe everything turned out all right for "the kid."

While Gilligan and his team intentionally left the fate of Pinkman (as played by Aaron Paul) open to interpretation by viewers, Gilligan's "personal feeling is that he got away."

Admittedly, the most "likely thing, as negative as this sounds, is that they're going to find this kid's fingerprints all over this lab and they're going to find him within a day or a week or a month," Gilligan tells GQ magazine. "And he's still going to be on the hook for the murder of two federal agents. But yeah, even though that's the most likely outcome, the way I see it is that he got away and got to Alaska, changed his name, and had a new life. You want that for the kid. He deserves it."

What do you think - does that match up with what you've envisioned?
