"Wait, Jesse! Jesse, just listen to me. Jesse!"
It's a bleak winter's day in Albuquerque. The Sandia mountains that loom over the city are fringed with snow. A biting wind howls along empty streets. There is an eerie feeling, as if the city is in hibernation. The only people in sight belong to a crowd in Civic Plaza. They're filming a scene for the final series of Breaking Bad, and at the heart of the group stands Bryan Cranston in character as the show's antihero, Walter White. His head is shaved, he has a tightly cropped goatee beard, and all his clothes are black. With his mobile phone pressed to his ear, he has a fixed, glowering look on his face.
