Fans of the AMC show "Breaking Bad" saw a gruesome end to one of the main characters when Season 4 ended Sunday night.
Appropriately titled "Face Off," the season finale offered closure for a long battle between drug kingpin Gustavo Fring (Giancarlo Esposito) and mild-mannered chemistry teacher-turned-ruthless meth cook Walter White (Bryan Cranston) when Gus is finally put in a body bag.
"I knew they couldn't stretch out the story line too much longer," co-star Aaron Paul told "Extra's" Maria Menounos.
"It's that 'Oh my god' [kind of] moment," Cranston told MTV News. "What's great about it is, for some reason, I didn't see it coming. You have a situation where Walt is trying to make this bomb. He has a detonator. It doesn't work because [Gus] didn't go to the car, so now he has to think up some ulterior motive."
"We lose Gus Fring as a character, but I've gained Giancarlo Esposito as a friend," Cranston added. "That's more valuable than anything. He's a wonderful man and a terrific actor, a very gracious, very giving, spiritually sound guy who's just embraceable. I have that [friendship] to look forward to."
