The funny thing is its not even a plot hole. Nobody knows what happens with Jesse. It's just an open ended ending with plenty of questions. The DEA has the evidence and the killers of the agents, the known/admitted kingpin, everything Skyler/Marie said. They know nothing more than Jesse was a cook.
The viewer can decide what happens and how far they take it vs Jesse. But it's hardly a plot hole. It's just not an "ending". He drove away, nothing more, nothing less.
in the context of my original statement - it's a plot hole. if you go back, you'll see i was responding to the premise that gilligan was presenting a "sunshine and rainbows" future for jesse. that isn't part of the reality he created where consequence exists and as far as the authorities know, jesse was the last person to see hank alive.
this isn't for c2i, since we've established that he doesn't bend on this, but a plot hole is something that defies the reality established in the fiction. so harry potter being a wizard isn't a plot hole. it's just unrealistic in our world. now a "plot hole" happens when we see harry potter use a time machine to solve all his problems in the 3rd movie - and then NEVER USES IT AGAIN, even though it would solve his much larger problems later on. that's the difference. so in breaking bad, the show is about cause and effect, consequence, reactions, tying up loose ends, etc. but jesse just goes on his merry way? not in this world's reality. not how it's been set up over 60 episodes.
