Sunday’s Breaking Bad episode potentially duped thousands of people with GPS coordinates that disappointingly led to Albuquerque Studios and not to lost treasure, unless you count the fact that The Lone Ranger was shot there. But, as Saul Goodman suggested to Walt, you could always send them to Belize—which, according to legend, is not just a sunny euphemism for killing someone, but rather an actual country on the coast of Central America. And what’s more, if you’re in the cast of Breaking Bad, the Belize Tourism Board would be all too happy to send you to Belize—again, in the sense they’d like to spring for your trip, not murder you then cover it up by invoking the name of a random tropical paradise whenever people ask. Or at least, that’s what they claim in a series of tweets, followed by the below letter sent to the New York Times:
Dear Cast of Breaking Bad,
Despite what Saul meant when he suggested that Walt send Hank "on a trip to Belize," we were flattered to be included on your program last Sunday. Many of us are big fans of the show and can't wait to see what happens over the last six episodes. While we hope that some of our favorite characters don't get "sent on a trip to Belize" in the show, we do hope you will take us upon the following offer — we'd like to send all of you on an ACTUAL trip to our country after the season is over.
We figure you will all need a little time to relax after a riveting season and, if you ask us, there's no better place to relax than Belize. It's really the least we can do for the entertainment you have provided us with over the last six years. So allow us an opportunity to entertain you — we have the Blue Hole for Walt, purple fish for Marie, geology for Hank, great music and friendly people for Jesse, delicious breakfast cuisine for Walt Jr., several nice locations to swim for Skylar, colorful clothing for Saul, and the list goes on.
We look forward to hearing back from you. Best of luck with the remainder of this season.
Unfortunately, characters like Badger, Skinny Pete, Lydia, Todd, and baby Holly aren’t mentioned in the letter, suggesting they all probably die this season, or they can pay for their own damn trips to Belize.
On a related note, we like Belize. Please, send us to Belize (the non-murdering-way).
