“There’s no purple. I think it’s green or grey, nothing even close to purple. It doesn’t surprise me. I love the last time we saw Mary in Breaking Bad. She’s wearing all neutral shades , beige and white, after she went through the trauma of losing Hank. She had to let go of a lot of crap. Things like that seemed pointless. When I showed up for the costume fitting, our costume designer had picked out the perfect The clothes. All the choices are correct, I don’t think there is any purple in there.”

I can’t imagine what dating is going to be like for her because she’s going to put everyone All like Hank, she’ll do it for a while. But I think she’s going to live a long, happy, fulfilling life. I hope she has some kind of connection with Skyler. It’ll never be the same, but I love the relationship I love that they have that war buddy connection. It was a loss for my character when she realized Skyler was involved. I think it’s hard to forgive, but I hope they have some connection. I want her to see Walter Jr. and baby Holly.”
