Breaking Bad fans were expecting a Jesse/Walt/Saul Goodman coming back on the final season of Better Call Saul, it was still a great surprise when the dysfunctional duo showed up on the latest episode of the hit AMC series. And it was also a good reminder of just how long it has been since we first met Walt and Jesse about 15 years ago.
Despite the fact that they did minimal de-aging, it’s still a little harsh to see the actors jumping right back into a scene from over a decade ago. Fans on Twitter had fun with a 40-something actor getting back in the mood of his 20-something character.

Meanwhile, everyone had nothing but nice words for Bryan Cranston, who seamlessly became a solid season two version of Walter White.
It is terrifying how Bryan Cranston hasn’t missed a fuckin beat in 9 years #BetterCallSaul

Bryan Cranston could be 90 and still look exactly the same as he did in 2009. Aaron Paul, I love you, but you can’t pass for 25 anymore ❤️ #bettercallsaul
