When I heard this theory, and checked it out in depth, I was pretty awestruck. I like to think that as a TV journalist, I am pretty good at figuring stuff out. So how did I not know that Breaking Bad and Walking Dead took place in the exact same universe, with Breaking Bad acting as a potential prequel to Walking Dead? Here, check out the evidence.
In the first episodes of The Walking Dead, Merle laid out a bag full of drugs when they were all on the roof, fighting. At the bottom of the bag was some “Sky Blue”. The blue meth Walter White makes on Breaking Bad. Well, well. That is clue number one. Second clue is when Glenn steals the Charger in the second episode of season one, do you know who’s got that same charger? Walter White’s son, Flynn (as he likes to be called). Yup, exact same red Dodge Charger. That is two points in the “same universe” category, and recently, the dropped point three.
Remember when Daryl and Beth were getting drunk on Moonshine, and Daryl began to tell Beth a story about some drug dealer who almost shot his brother in front of him. Well, this ties it all up. He explains that dealer as being a skinny blonde kid, and when Daryl quotes what the kid said to his brother, he uses a certain keyword that Aaron Paul was well-known for using on Breaking Bad. I wont spell it out for you here, because this is a family site, but I think you get the point. Crazy, huh?
What if the blue meth is somehow linked to the outbreak? I know, insane, but they started it.
