Did you see Bryan Cranston on Talking Bad Sunday night? He said he doesn't take sides or judge the character. It was a journey and he became Walt for that jouney. From what I have read, Vince did not really see this as a black or white, either or situation. I think the viewers have gone there, siding with Jesse or Walt. Although, I never liked Jesse until late in the series, when he helped Mike out. I then grew to tolerate him. He's always been a loose cannon, but Walt knew that and kept bailing him out.
Remember how Gus wanted Jesse dead and Walt risks his life many times to keep him alive? Big mistake. lol
I think Walt is an example of what people do under extreme conditions. I personally believe that anyone will do anything under the right circumstances.
The guy who plays Gomez was on Talking Bad too and when Don Cheadle was talking about how there was no way that someone didn't die in that gun battle, he said you would be surprised, so that's leading me to believe that Gomez and Hank don't die. That ticks me off. If no one was hit with all that gunfire, then Vince needs a spanking. lol I won't be happy.
