Warning: Breaking Bad Spoilers
It’s tough competition when picking your costume for Comic-Con, however Aaron Paul’s baby daughter knocked it out of the park.
38-year-old Breaking Bad actor Aaron dressed up baby Story as a mini Heisenberg, complete with a yellow protective hazmat suit.
All the pint-sized chemistry genius needed was a tiny push along RV to roll around in and she was ready to start shaking up the drugs scene of Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Luckily, five-month-old Story Annabelle seems much more placid than the darkly complicated chemistry teacher turned meth cook; gazing placidly into the audience.
Fans erupted in thunderous applause as Aaron and Story took to the stage, delighted by the playful reference to the beloved crime drama.
As he took his seat on the panel with Bryan Cranston, Anna Gunn, Bob Odenkirk et al, Aaron joked, ‘Is my wife here? She’s supposed to come pick my baby up.’
Because time is weird and scary, it is apparently now 10 years since we first met the iconic characters Walter White and Jesse Pinkman.
Unlikely heroes both, telly addicts still hold a special place in our hearts for the duo, whose friendship remained touching despite acid bath incidents, old folks home bombings and prison assassinations.
Naturally, the excitement of a cast reunion can only be compared to the thrill felt by Walt at the sight of a sparkling new lab. And fans had questions…
Ever since prequel Better Call Saul proved spin-offs can be genuinely excellent in their own right, fans have been longing for another glimpse of Walter and Jesse.
Of course, Walt is now six-feet-under after having – partially – redeemed himself of his many sins.
However, in the timeline of Better Call Saul, he is still a simple family man and Ned Flanders lookalike seething with quiet rage over the disappointments life has dealt him.
Although creator and writer Vince Gilligan stated neither actor would appear in the fourth series of Better Call Saul, he also teased:
We would be seriously remiss if these characters don’t appear on Saul before it is all over.
I think there is a chance all of these characters could appear on Better Call Saul.

I would personally love to know what happened next for Jesse after he sped away in that car.
We saw his already troubled life descend into a nightmare after he was kidnapped and kept as a slave by the Neo-Nazis and it would be nice to see him return to his wisecracking self.

Unlike his fictional counterpart, Aaron appears to have a very happy home life with his wife Lauren Parsekian and their baby, who was born in February 2018.
Announcing the pregnancy through a sweet Instagram post, Aaron said:
Hey everyone. Look what I did. Words can’t express how excited I am that this little one has entered our lives. Just thought it was time I would share this beautiful news with all of you.
Well played, Story. What a badass way to make an entrance to your first ever Comic-Con!
