Bryan Cranston got to talking about the final episode of Breaking Bad today, and he has some good news: the story of Walter White is only done when he says it's done.

CNN's Ashleigh Banfield had Cranston on as a guest this afternoon, and at the end of the interview she asked him to clarify Walter White's ultimate fate.

Banfield: That final scene, that final image... I wasn't so sure that you died. I really wasn't. Your eyes were open, and I thought, 'What if the police just take him into custody, he gets better, breaks out, and just goes nuts?'

Cranston: Hey, you never saw bags zip up or anything, or anybody say... you know.

The best part of the interview is Cranston's face as Banfield spins out her alternate ending—that is not the expression of a man imagining this scenario for the first time.
