Breaking Bad was a successful series that ended off with fans wanting more, spurring a spinoff series called Better Call Saul. Though the followup featured the same cast from Breaking Bad, one icon was missing: Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul).
Fret not. A Breaking Bad spinoff film is underway, and it’s called El Camino. The film will touch on the aftermath of the series finale and will even feature Jesse Pinkman.
Breaking Bad first aired in 2008, and since then, there have been a total of 62 episodes to date.
To enhance your viewing experience of El Camino, it’s best to catch up on the series. However, no one has the time to sit through all 62 episodes, so here are some key episodes to watch before the debut of El Camino on 11 October 2019.
Pilot (Season One, Episode One)
Get a hit of nostalgia from the very first debut episode. Though this episode focuses more on Walter White rather than Jesse, we can get a glimpse of how Jesse would often get himself in trouble in ways out of his control.
4 Days Out (Season Two, Episode Nine)
Before you meet the broken-down, traumatized version of Jesse, refresh your memory to the wide-eyed Jesse Pinkman in the earlier series. The character used to be fun and reckless, which was also the reason why Walter and Jesse would end up stranded in the desert without a working RV in this episode.
Peekaboo (Season Two, Episode 6)
In this episode, Jesse goes solo and ends up being faced with a series of misfortunes. This was the point where Aaron Paul stamped his role as Jesse to be a worthwhile character in the series, as the character was supposed to be killed off in season one itself.
Confessions, Rabid Dog, To’hajiilee, Ozymandias, Granite State, Felina (Season Five, Episode 11-16)
It’s only fair to catch up on the last few episodes of the final season to fully understand the continuation which is El Camino.
In episodes 11 through 14, Jesse and Walter’s relationship are shown to turn sour to the point where Jesse would end up being captured by the Nazis, leading to Ozymandias, where Jesse becomes a prisoner to Uncle Jack, Todd and the Nazis.
In Granite State, Jesse struggles as a slave who is forced to cook meth, and in Felina, the duo partner up for the last time to go against the Nazis, which ends with Jesse driving off to what will become of El Camino.
