Don Eladio says he didn’t kill Fring because “I know you who are.” So what does that tell us? It tells us that Fring is someone that the head of a drug cartel refuses to kill. Well, there aren’t many people who are off limits to a cartel kingpin. They kill their rivals, they kill politicians, there has to be a really good reason that Eladio didn’t see fit to kill Fring, and it wasn’t because he thought Fring could make him money, because if that was what he wanted, he would have taken Fring’s offer. ~ Reddit

“I’d like to think Jesse got away. I like to think he kept driving. But we all know he has no money, he gave it all away, and we also know his fingerprints are all over everything where Walt was found dead. They’re gonna be searching high and low for Jesse, so I don’t know. I like to think he was building something in Alaska…but he could be locked away in a prison somewhere. But we don’t like to think about that version of the show.”

And finally…
