Our favorite meth cook-in-training had some tragic moments, some comic moments, and some tragicomic moments.
On Friday October 11, Netflix will debut El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie. It stars Aaron Paul as Jesse Pinkman, the long-suffering, sarcastic, assistant meth cook with a heart of gold on Breaking Bad.
Originally, Jesse was supposed to die at the end of the first season. But thanks to Paul, whose performance elevated Jesse from a supporting character to a co-lead, we got five full seasons of an Emmy-winning, career-defining role. Jesse had layers, and as Walt became more monstrous with each subsequent episode, Jesse correspondingly became more sympathetic. He sought approval from a series of father figures, from Walt to Gus to Mike. But now, all three men are dead, and in El Camino, Jesse will have to stand on his own.
Here are the 10 most memorable Jesse Pinkman moments from Breaking Bad.
