Aaron admitted when the show wrapped in 2013 he thought it was goodbye and I was OK with that, so we better count the good influencing skills of Vince.
Aaron told The Hollywood Reporter of his thoughts after the El Camino idea was brought up: Im like everybody else on the planet – I think Vince and the rest of the writers really nailed the landing with the ending of Breaking Bad, and why mess with that?
But its Vince were talking about. I would follow Vince into a fire. Thats how much I trust the man. I would do anything that he asked me to.

All I had to do was just memorise these words and then play them out when they yelled “action”.
And we cannot wait.
