It’s over, and I needed a proper goodbye.
Entertainment Weekly: Were you satisfied with Skyler’s ending? Were you surprised she lived?
Anna Gunn: Yes, I was happy to see that she lived. I don’t know what kind of life she has in front of her to be honest. But I do see some hope. I think Skyler’s a tremendously strong person, and I think that Marie is a tremendously strong person, and I think that there is hope that possibly the two of them can somehow mend what has happened between them. Maybe that’s just my sense of hopefulness as a human being, but I feel like they are and always have been such close sisters in that they are now really all that they have left, and they are going to be the ones to protect those children, and so you have this sense that perhaps they’ll pull together and that they’ll make sure that those kids are okay and that they’ll stick together. I was certainly satisfied with the way that the story was told all around. I thought it was a really perfect ending in terms of storytelling. I thought it was sad, really sad. So seeing her in that really depressing apartment and seeing her as a shell of her former self. There was a real heartbreaking quality to the fact that she knew that she had fallen down the rabbit hole and not only had her whole existence been turned upside down, but she had been responsible for some of it. And you wonder how will she recover from it and how will she go on and there’s so many things that you don’t know and unanswered questions … that there’s a real sadness about that, I think, but that’s part of the beauty of the storytelling.
