So wild it just might be true
In the past 10 years, AMC has brought us some of the most popular and influential TV series of our time.
Breaking Bad premiered in January 2008 and told the story of Walter White, a high school chemistry teacher turned drug dealer and kingpin. Considered one of the best TV shows of all time, it focuses on White’s transition from your average, middle-class man into a more sinister figure, as well as the concepts of good and evil, as well as who determines which is which.
Based on the comic series of the same name, The Walking Dead is another exceedingly popular TV show that follows sheriff’s deputy Rick Grimes who is learning how to survive in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by zombies.
Though the two realities sound entirely different, fans are starting to theorize that the shows may take place in exactly the same universe and that the events of one directly impact the start of the other.
Breaking Bad is all about drugs. More specifically, it’s about Blue Sky, the special meth that Walter and Jesse turn into an empire.
It’s interesting, then, that in Season 1, Episode 2 of The Walking Dead, we see a bag of the same exact drug in Merle’s stash.
Just an Easter egg, or something more?
But that’s not the only interesting thing about Merle’s drugs.
Daryl later explains that they bought it from a tiny white guy who said, “I’m going to kill you, b*tch.”
As any fan of Breaking Bad will know, Jesse has an affinity for calling people “b*tch.” Though separated by a few states, this could easily explain how Blue Sky ended up in Merle’s hands.
The Red Dodge
In Breaking Bad Season 4, Walt buys his son a red dodge with black stripes. No biggie, right? Well, Walt later goes to return the car, but an employee named Glenn says it will cost him several hundred dollars in restocking fees.
Later, in the second episode of The Walking Dead, we see a character also named Glenn steal a red Dodge with black stripes to escape imminent danger.
Just a car, or is it a key?
At this point, I know what you’re thinking. These examples are pretty neat coincidences, but if there’s one theory you’d really like to hear, it’s how the zombie apocalypse started in the first place. Oh wait, this theory covers that, too. Keep reading.
