SPOILERS ahead from El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie.
El Camino ended with Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) starting a new life in Alaska. Before driving away, Jesse gave Ed Galbraith (RIP Robert Forster) a letter to mail to someone. That someone was young Brock Cantillo, the son of Jesse's ex-girlfriend Andrea. Little Brock was put through so much suffering on Breaking Bad, and Jesse wanted to leave him with a few words. What did Jesse write in the letter? Well, we were supposed to hear it.
El Camino shows vacuum salesman/disappearing guru Ed reading the letter, which appears to be pretty long and hand-written. I do agree that it's sad that the voiceover was cut. Is there such a thing as a deleted scene for a Netflix movie? If so, please let us stream it, or release the audio -- or a full transcript.
You'll recall that Brock was poisoned by Walt (Bryan Cranston) on Breaking Bad, and his mother was killed by Todd (Jesse Plemons) as punishment for Jesse running away from the white supremacist compound. So Brock's tragedies are related to Jesse but not really Jesse's direct fault. Still, I can understand why Jesse would want to apologize as best he could and explain this was never what he wanted.
El Camino brought back several Breaking Bad characters -- including Walter White, of course -- and ended Jesse Pinkman's story by giving him a new beginning. I wish we could've seen more of his life in Alaska, but maybe we'll get another story someday -- or revisit him somehow via Better Call Saul.
Gina grew up in Massachusetts and California in her own version of The Parent Trap. She went to three different middle schools, four high schools, and three universities -- including half a year in Perth, Western Australia. She currently lives in a small town in Maine, the kind Stephen King regularly sets terrible things in, so this may be the last you hear from her.
