When he arrives at the open grave in his “Breaking Bad” trailer, we see that fear doesn’t do what Walter (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse (Aaron Paul) say. love to do what he did. From that initial fear comes the opportunity to manipulate money, and most importantly, a relatively familiar safety net.

The fact that both versions of the story he tells are true is a real testament to how contradictory Jimmy’s personality is. He can easily get stuck in the blame game, but there’s also a big part of him that knows he needs to be held accountable for everything he’s done, no matter what. crime or not.

There really is no other option for him but to give up everything for the good.
