Breaking Bad had its fair share of tragic moments throughout the series. There was plenty of death, violence, and loss to go around, and the show famously got very heavy at times. Perhaps to lighten the mood, fans have taken many of these tragic moments and turned them into memes.
Some images from Breaking Bad scenes have been used over and over. Others are original artwork used to add a bit of humor. And while Breaking Bad might not strike people has one that lends itself well to memes, fans still managed to take some of the most horrid moments of the series and make them funny enough.
Jesse Pinkman had an especially rough time on Breaking Bad. After he came to the realization that Walt was the one who poisoned Brock, he went to Walt’s house with gasoline to burn it to the ground.
Hank managed to stop him in the nick of time, but Jesse’s frustration with all the terrible things Walt has done finally boils over with the iconic line, “He can’t keep getting away with it!” Reddit user u/hey_girl_ya_hungry combined this sad scene with various suspenseful movies to create this meme.
One of the earliest tragedies of Breaking Bad occurred when Jesse’s girlfriend Jane died during a heroin trip. The resulting grief caused her father Donald, an aircraft controller, to fail to stop two planes from crashing into each other, resulting in 167 deaths.
This meme points out that although Donald appeared in only four episodes, he caused the deaths of far more people than the show’s drug dealing main characters.
Poor Gale really was such a nice guy. In a series full of violent people and borderline sociopaths, a guy who just likes to make coffee, read books and sing to Italian music was a nice break.
Gale is polite, intelligent, and eager to please. Unfortunately, he got caught up with Walt and Jesse and ended up dead. This meme really captures the disappointment that the nicest character in the series met such an unfair end.
