Thursday, May 29, Bryan Cranston stopped by CNN and decided to blow up the Internet. When asked point blank if Walter White was dead, Cranston answered, "I don't know," and when it came to the possibility of a "Breaking Bad" movie, he replied," Never say never."
With that, Twitter went on an emotional roller coaster, which we've broken down into 10 stages of acceptance.

Stage 7: Denial
I'm hoping Bryan Cranston was just misquoted or winding up the journalists.
— Daniel Burden (@Danburden1138) May 30, 2014
I'm going to assume Cranston was just throwing the reporters a bone, hoping they would stop asking him Breaking Bad questions for a while.

Bryan Cranston hinted that Walter White might not be dead, and if that's true I swear I will engineer a virus to wipe out all nerds.
