Warning: This post contains spoilers and violent content from Breaking Bad.

It’s been six years since the Breaking Bad finale aired and fans finally learned the fates of Walter White (Bryan Cranston), Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) and Heisenberg’s inner circle. But while Walt was all but confirmed to have been killed by a stray bullet during his carefully orchestrated massacre of Jack Welker’s (Michael Bowen) gang of White Supremacists, Jesse’s final moments were more ambiguous.

Now, Jesse is returning to the screen in El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, creator Vince Gilligan’s movie sequel to his revered AMC drama. El Camino will hit Netflix on Friday, Oct. 11 and is set to pick up immediately after the events of Breaking Bad‘s finale, with Jesse speeding away from the neo-Nazi compound as police close in on it. But just because Jesse’s free from meth-cooking enslavement doesn’t mean he’s gotten out of Dodge — he’s still a known accomplice of the former most-wanted drug kingpin in America.

Jesse isn’t the only Breaking Bad character who will make an appearance in El Camino. Gilligan told The Hollywood Reporter that “more than 10 familiar characters” will show up in the movie.

Considering Jonathan Banks already revealed that the deceased Mike Ehrmantraut will return, it seems likely that there will be some flashbacks featuring Breaking Bad‘s dearly departed. (Recall Krysten Ritter’s Jane, Jesse Plemons’ Todd and Emily Rios’ Andrea.) But there are also several still-living characters who could pop up.

Before you watch the movie, here’s a refresher on where the storylines of some of Breaking Bad‘s most significant, still-living players left off in the show’s final episodes.
