7 wild assumptions about the final episodes of 'Breaking Bad'

It's almost as if murderous meth lord Walter White himself was threatening "Breaking Bad" star Laura Fraser. The 37-year-old Scottish actress, worried about giving up spoilers, seemed almost as nervous as her highly-strung character, Lydia Rodarte-Quayle, during a phone conversation from her homeland Tuesday. She didn't spill, but that hasn't stopped me, based on what she said, from making these wild assumptions about the final episodes of AMC's hit drama.

Read my full interview with Laura Fraser here.

New episodes of "Breaking Bad" air at 8 p.m. CT Sundays on AMC.

1. Does Lydia manage to bring Walt (Bryan Cranston) back into the meth biz?
Fraser said: "Interesting. Interesting," and laughed.
Not-so-wild assumption: Walt returns to cooking.

2. Does Lydia manage to bring Walt back into the meth biz?
Fraser later said: "I think she would love Walt to get back and sort this situation out and get the qualities of meth back up. But if she can't, she's going to find another way to do that."
Wild assumption: Lydia gets Jesse (Aaron Paul) cooking again.

3. Does her confrontation with Skyler (Anna Gunn) foreshadow future conflict?
Fraser said: "Let's vaguely say that that does foreshadow a little bit of conflict possibly in the future. Whether that's just in Lydia's mind, or in real life, remains to be seen."
Wild assumption: Remember that kill list Lydia gave Mike (Jonathan Banks) early in Season 5? Lydia adds Skyler to her kill list.

4. Are viewers going to be surprised by what Lydia does?
She said: "I think in the next episode, when I read it I was kind of blown away by how calculating and almost like dark [she was] with such sociopathic behavior. She's become naughtier than normal. When I read it I was kind of a little bit shocked and delighted by it."
Wild assumption: She kills Skyler!

5. What's the most important lesson you learned from doing this show?
She said: "Don't be a murderess."
Wild assumption: SHE KILLS SKYLER!

6. Are you happy how it all ends?
She said: "'I love the way it all wraps up,' she said vaguely, 'for Lydia.' I couldn't have wished for a kind of more fitting ending, whatever that may be. The way it all wraps for her at the end of this final season, I love it. It kind of made me laugh. It kind of felt pristinely perfect for Lydia Rodarte-Quayle to kind of wrap it up the way she does."
Wild assumption: Walt has Lydia committed to the most pristine psych ward in Albuquerque.

7. Was it weird for the upcoming episodes to be missing people as the cast kept dwindling?
She said: "Well, people are dropping like flies towards the end. Yeah. But I can't really say who and what. It was carnage, yeah."
Wild assumption: Bye-bye, everybody. Except Saul (Bob Odenkirk), if the spin-off happens.
