My God, what a final 15 minutes. I don't think I took a breath during that last stretch. When Hank was, understandably, savouring the moment of catching Walt, I was shouting at my TV for him to get the hell out of there. I don't have a good feeling for Hank and Gomie here. Hank's greatest moment - finally catching Heisenberg by brilliantly outsmarting Walt, which pretty much no one has been able to do this series - and he may be gunned down moments later by neo-Nazi scum. Amazing episode.

So it turned out last week's setup episode was REALLY a setup episode.

I was pacing around the living room, which a TV show hasn't made me do in a long time. I really thought, when Hank called Marie, that he was going to die on the phone and that she was going to hear it.
But the other moment I was screaming at the TV was when Walt was spilling the beans to Jesse on the phone, just rattling off all of the people he has killed on Jesse's behalf.

Steven Michael Quezada, who plays Gomie, mentioned on Talking Bad that Gilligan tends to put these characters into corners in which the odds seem insurmountable, yet somehow they come out of it. Having said that, I think Gomie is a goner, and Walt somehow is able to save Hank by calling off the dogs.
The pacing of these episodes is just great. Three more to go.

For a guy we know very little about and who has just been introduced Uncle Jack is really interesting. I don't think we are going to get there with only three episodes left, but I would love to know his back story, where he came from and what makes the guy tick.

Wow, the one weekend I go to Vegas and such an intense episode. My friend warned me the last 15 is crazy and that made me freak out even more watching it, as Hank and Gomez kept stalling... thought for sure someone was going to die this episode. Can't wait for next week.

What got me was how calm and cool Todd was during the shootout. It was almost like he felt it was a video game and not real. I feel Todd may have a huge role over the last episodes.
I do not think I am overstating this at all when I call this the single best show ever in the history of television drama. I do not recall any series being this consistently good over this long a period of time.
Due to the lateness of the recording, we get to talk about the Saul show. Josh gives a vague spoiler about the show's end. Joe plugs his conspiracy show and Robo-Todd. We can build him faster, stronger and more creepy.
