'Westworld': Aaron Paul on That 'Cage' Line That Has Fans Drawing 'Breaking Bad' Comparisons (Exclusive)
Entertainment

Was Caleb Nichols Jesse Pinkman in an alternate life? And does Dolores know all about it? Sunday's episode of Westworld included a reference to Aaron Paul's former show, Breaking Bad -- though it wasn't intentional (or even on Paul's radar). "They put you in a cage, Caleb, decided what your life would be," Evan Rachel Wood's Dolores told Caleb in the episode, as he officially joined her fight against Incite. "They did the same thing to me." Fans have been joking about that line since it was included in Westworld's season three trailer, noting that Paul's Jesse was locked in a cage in Breaking Bad's fifth season. While they couldn't get enough of the imaginary Easter egg, Paul told ET it hadn't crossed his mind. "You know, I never really ever thought about that, but yeah," he told ET's Leanne Aguilera at Westworld's season three press day earlier this month. "It's just so crazy what a science fiction show Westworld is, but it feels like it's really based on sort of a distant reality -- which is terrifying."

"And tonight, we hope the music we bring you can do just that and provide a little escape for your family as you get together."Before introducing the episode, Seacrest explained the Hawaii-set showcase of the season's Top 40 was "shot back in January, so enjoy the music."It was clear that Idol would have to address the coronavirus outbreak, which has led to the temporary suspension of production on the current season of the show. This may mean that live episodes -- and thus this season's winner -- won't be determined for some time to come, once the outbreak has subsided and TV productions begin again.
