Afternoon Links: There’s Always More Breaking BadEW.com

Paul is so good at tearing up that he even gets a little misty listening to Cranston read Jesse’s fate. Apparently the clip is part of a two-hour documentary about the making of the final season, which sounds sensational. In ancillary BrBa news, Vince Gilligan re-upped with Sony Pictures TV today, signing an eight-figure deal that will keep his future TV projects in-house.
