The Most Plausible Fan Theories About Breaking Bad

List Rules
Vote up the fan theories that you think actually have some merit.

From Easter eggs of the smallest minutia to grand, sweeping conspiracy theories, these Breaking Bad fan theories truly leave no stone unturned. You won't find any bombastic, cheesy theories here - nearly every Breaking Bad fan has heard of the possibility that Jesse could be Walt's unknown, biological son. Yet is that actually plausible? Doubtful. The theories on this list earned their spots based on their high probability factors and factual merit. You'll even find theories that the show's creator, Vince Gilligan, has refuted (such as Walt freezing to death in his car and having a hallucinatory fantasy dream), as well as fan theories and Easter eggs he's publicly confirmed (like a call back to another series he executive produced, The X-Files).

So scroll through the list and vote up the most plausible Breaking Bad Easter eggs and fan theories, and add your own in the comments. What happened to Jesse after the events in the series finale, "Felina"? What really caused Walt's cancer? Who is Walt Jr.'s actual biological father?
