In a chat with TV Guide, showrunner Vince Gilligan weighed-in on two of Breaking Bad ‘s most talked about arcs — Walt’s cancer and the ominous flash forward.

Can we expect for the following episodes to give us more preview of Walt’s dark future? Plus, will Walt ever get rid of that stubborn lung cancer?

Read Gilligan’s thoughts (spoilers) below:

“Look to last year for the shape of [the season],” creator Vince Gilligan says. (Season 5 opened with a flash-forward, but didn’t return to it again until Sunday’s premiere.) However, as noted by Walt’s return to chemotherapy, his health is of supreme interest to Gilligan & Co. “I don’t know if lung cancer is ever cured,” Gilligan says coyly. “It’s a very insidious thing and you never know when it’s going to rear its ugly head. We always kept that in mind and we want to pay off that initial story engine.”

‘Breaking Bad’ airs every Sunday on AMC.
