Holy WOW.  This show has no problem taking it to the next level.  However tonight they took somewhere I never thought they would go.  Walt poisoning the kid last season was bad.  What happened tonight was shocking!

I'm moving into loving the show but hating the man that Walt is evolving into.  Despite Walt's evolution, there seemed to be a bit of innocence in his ways (even with poisoning the kid...he knew the kid would be alright).  The innocence was lost when debating the approach to the heist. He was all in until Jesse spoke up with plan B. The writing and acting is coming off as brilliant once again.  

I love that when Walt gains more power he is becoming less in control of things. Unlike previous seasons when he had no power and was able to take control of things.  This is nothing new for this type of character.  However this crew is pulling it off perfectly.  Kudos to the team.

I'll save the write up for someone else. I'm just floored with tonight's episode. Jaw dropping floored.

Yeah, they are not really holding back this season. I just didn't see that coming...

None of the recent episodes feel like a full hour to me. Every time the show ends, I keep thinking that only a half hour has passed. They are just really great episodes.

They've already had several allusions to how Walt may come tumbling down. They've referenced Scarface, Heat, The Caine Mutiny... all of which have some connection with deception and betrayal, or at least perceived betrayal.

I think the big, wait-for-it, be-all moment will be the moment when Hank FINALLY realizes that Walt is Heisenberg. And my hunch is that the bug Walt planted in Hank's office will get found, and Hank, who really is no dummy, will remember Walt clutching that picture and the watch (and the cars), and then it will FINALLY hit him. That's the moment I am looking forward to this season.

What I love is that this season it is JESSE that is the idea man had has really evolved from that jackass from season 1.

Considering that it has been 1 full year since S1E1, (and the flash-forward from S5E1 is another year in the future) Walt, Sky, and Jesse have come along way in a short time.

Walt went from being someone with no control in his life and just trying to provide for his family after his impending death to beating cancer (for now) and becoming a drug kingpin who needs total control of everyone and everything.

Jesse was an impulsive punk, "Cap'n Cook", and now is someone that Walt has been sort of grooming into his image. Kind of like the son he really wanted. Every time he tries to go it alone, pull away from Walt, or just tries to have a life outside of cooking, Walt pulls the strings until he comes back to the fold. There will be hell to pay if Jesse ever finds out what Walt has been doing.

Sky went from a loving wife and mother trying to deal with her dying husband to finding out that she doesn't even know who Walter is any more and right now is just trying to do the best she can to make sure her kids get out of this safe and unharmed. I have a feeling that her fear of Walt will end up being his downfall.

Only 3 more episodes for this half of the season and then we have to wait until NEXT SUMMER to get the conclusion. I can not wait for next week. I second the observation that the episodes move so quick. All this season I was shocked that episodes "ended" when they did because it didn't feel like an hour, that's for sure.

Hands down, my favorite series ever. The acting, writing, and pacing are top notch.

EDIT: Oh, in case no one has noticed, Lydia was Kate the Blacksmith from "A Knight's Tale"

I think Hank might ratchet up obfuscating stupidity a bit, and later on we proceed to find out he knew the bugs were there the whole time and laid a trap for Walt.

Or Walt comes to a difficult decision, and has Hank killed.

I might be in the minority, but last night's episode was the first of this season that didn't drag ...

Landry Jones FTW.

This season has been great. I didn't think there would be much juice left after Gus got blown away, but the darker that Walter White gets the more this show amazes. He's getting greedy now and that's not a good thing for everyone around him.

I really thought Todd was going to be an undercover operative who was working on the house burglaries and got mixed up into something bigger, but it shows what I know. I still think Walt Jr get hooked on the Blue stuff.

Only three more episodes until the extended hiatus. That's going to be the worst part of this season.

Every character seems to be doing a 180.

Walt was a henpecked husband with no control. Now he's a ruthless kingpin.

Hank was a boorish oaf of a cop, but has become a more disciplined person.

Jesse was a scumbag loser, but is becoming the conscience of the show. Shooting the kid is not gonna sit well with him.

Wait! We get eight episodes then we have to wait 10 months for the last eight? I knew about the split season.... But really next summer??? What the hell? That gap makes the gap in season 2 of "The Walking Dead" seem like nothing.

I'll still watch, but damn!
