As the chemistry teacher-turned-meth king in AMC's dark drama, Walter White (Bryan Cranston) has turned many heads -- and done away with a few. But it's his street-savvy student-turned-partner, Jesse Pinkman (Paul), that has, oddly, brought some much-needed heart to the series. He's undergone quite the transformation in the show's run -- from punk drug dealer to the wounded conscience of the series.
The second half of the fifth and final season debuted Sunday night. In it, there's a lot less "yo!" and funny one-liners coming from Pinkman and a lot more agonized reflection as he starts to question everything.
We'll talk to Paul about the end of the "Breaking Bad" run, where Pinkman is headed this season, his favorite Pinkman moments and why-oh-why he didn't stop by our neighborhood when he made it rain money in the streets. We promise not to tread lightly.
