Vince Gilligan Confirms Fate Of Breaking Bad’s Huell
Last time we saw Breaking Bad‘s Huell (Lavell Crawford), he was taken to a safe house by a DEA Agent, where he was told to remain. The fate of the character was one of the hit series’ few loose ends and the subject of many jokes and memes by fans.
Now, finally, series creator Vince Gilligan has confirmed what happened to the character in the official Breaking Bad book.
In response to the question “Is Huell still waiting for someone to come back for him?” Gilligan said: “”Yes, sadly he’s waiting morosely on that sofa, looking like a lost puppy… [Laughs] No. It’s likely that Agent Van Oster keeps in touch with DEA headquarters. So when he learns Gomez and Hank have gone missing, he would in short order tell his superiors what they were up to.
Within a matter of hours, really not that many in story time, Huell will be taken back to HQ. They’ll question him, find out what he knows — which isn’t much — and he’ll be let out on the street.
Right now, he’s doing what Huell does best, whatever that is. He’s out and about as a free man.”
Here’s hoping Huell shows up in Better Call Saul!
