Thanks in no small part to Reddit, wild fan theories about the origins and meanings of our favorite movies and TV shows are now all the rage these days. The vast majority of them, if not all, are of course complete horse shit, but that doesn’t make them any less entertaining. Take this one, courtesy of Netflix, which has now seemingly jumped on the fan theory bandwagon, for example.
Thought up by fan Donna Dickens, this mind-bending theory postulates that Breaking Bad is about a whole lot more than Walter White starting as a bumbling chemistry teacher and turning himself into a fully-fledged monster. It states that, in fact, he turns everyone else into fully-fledged monsters with his Blue Sky meth, kickstarting the zombie epidemic of The Walking Dead.
It might sound like a bit of a stretch, but it lays down some interesting evidence including crossover characters, suspicious drug habits in The Walking Dead, and even a possible zombie in Breaking Bad. Find out about the full theory by watching the video above, then let us know what you think in the comments below.
