    Re: Breaking Bad

    A few of you have said Jesse outsmarted Walt. I disagree. Jesse stumbled into a situation that Walt couldn't have conceived. I give full credit to Hank for how they "nabbed" Walt. The interesting thing here is that, of all the changes between all the characters, Jesse has remained the same. He is still too stupid and naive to realize when he is being used. The irony here is that the "bad guy", Walt, cares about Jesse and the "good guy", Hank, doesn't (Hank has admitted such when he didn't care if Jesse got killed in the public square as long as he got Walt).

    Agreed on all counts. I was mostly disappointed with Walt not only leading them right to the money without taking even one step to make sure he was at the hiding place, and then confessing a ton of his crimes on the phone call to Jessie, which I assumed was wiretapped, but now I am not so sure.

    Re: Breaking Bad

    Walt cares so much about Jesse, who is "like family," when he talks to the Nazi about murdering him, he sounds like he is putting down the family dog. I guess Saul's Old Yeller analogy was spot on at least for how Walt feels about Jesse.

    Re: Breaking Bad

    I'm thinking about recording the last 3 episodes so there is not as much buildup.

    Re: Breaking Bad

    I still think Todd's crew takes Hank prisoner, but now I am thinking that Walt ends up saving Hank and possibly dies in the process.

    Re: Breaking Bad

    OR Hank does get killed and Marie goes apesh*t which leads to Skylar turning him in, and Walt Jr. finding out about the whole thing... damn it why isn't it next Sunday already!!! On another note, my mommy attended a Breaking Bad viewing party last night at a local bar/restaurant and quite a few former cast members were there so she got some autographs and pics taken. Pretty gnarly.

    Re: Breaking Bad

    I'm hoping that Walt survives all this and is standing alone at the end of the last show. Hank can't possibly survive a shootout with 8 assault weapons with a single shot pistol but I guess stranger things have happened in this series.

    Maybe Walt Jr will take Jesse's place and the two White men will continue to run their drug empire off into the sunset so things are set up to start another series of shows 5 years from now.

    What if they've secretly shot a season 6?

    Re: Breaking Bad

    Walt has a huge gun and some ricin. I also think he uses the ricin on himself and then goes to cleanup whatever mess comes out of these next couple episodes.

    It's hard to say who will be alive and who will be dead, but I think he goes after Todd and his uncle, and perhaps Lydia and anyone else she is working with.

    Re: Breaking Bad

    The last day on set... (first spoiler isn't a big one, the second one is a little bit)

    they shot THIS upcoming episode, not the last one in the series.

    Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul said in an interview that they were in a trailer and the director yelled "cut!" at a scene with just those too that was very climatic and they just cried.




    So needless to say, this episode is gonna be awesome

    It was Jesse's idea to go after the money rather than Walt directly. It was Jesse who led Hank to Huell. We don't know who hatched what aspects of the plan, but I doubt Jesse needed any kind of ****** for that phone call. And Walt stupidly (and predictably) lost his mind and led them straight to the money. The ONLY reason he isn't going to prison right now is that Todd's crew came even after being told to stand down. In other words, Walt got ridiculously lucky.

    And yeah, Walt cares deeply for Jesse. I mean, we all think we want to kill people we love. Walt's just doing it for real. Hank doesn't care about him, either. Nobody truly cares about Jesse.
