What Do You Think Will Happen? Market Research Says Fans Believe Walter White Will Survive ‘Breaking Bad’ Finale

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist September 27, 2013 at 10:19AM

He poisoned a child, murdered Mike, watched Jane die and done shortage of horrible, awful things, and yet Walter White remains one of the most complex characters we've seen on television in quite some time. With "Breaking Bad" set to say goodbye in just over 48 hours, excitement and speculation is running rampant about how it will all end. We've stuck with Walter through five seasons, and while he remains the protagonist of the show, the man trying to fight cancer and provide for his family has morphed into an ego-fuelled, hubris-driven monster, with our sympathies draining along with it. Or have they? According to some timely market research, it seems there are a good chunk of fans who'd like to him live.

Breaking Bad

He poisoned a child, murdered Mike, watched Jane die and done no shortage of horrible, awful things, and yet Walter White remains one of the most complex characters we've seen on television in quite some time. With "Breaking Bad" set to say goodbye in just over 48 hours, excitement and speculation is running rampant about how it will all end. We've stuck with Walter through five seasons, and while he remains the protagonist of the show, the man trying to fight cancer and provide for his family has morphed into an ego-fuelled, hubris-driven monster, with our sympathies draining along with it. Or have they? According to some timely market research, it seems there are a good chunk of fans who'd like to him live.

Online market research firm Survata surveyed 721 people planning to watch the finale on Sunday, and asked them witch ending they would prefer to see. The answer? A rather surprising 24% want to see Walter gets his money back from Jack Welker, dodge the fuzz and ride off into the sunset. While we're still stuck on why anyone would want to see Walt get away with his misdeeds rather than pay for them, it's not an outcome that we think is likely to happen. 

That being said, when asked what they think will happen in the finale, 20% say Walter will survive one way or another. And well, yeah, that's certainly a possibility, though at the end of last week's episode, it seems he's headed into a death wish from which he won't survive (and we'd wager a few more bodies might stack up along the way).

You can see the full survey results below, but what do you think will happen? Weigh in with your predictions and we'll see when the dust clears on Monday. [via Warming Glow]
