I'm glad there was a payoff from the cliffhanger of Hank finding out WW = Walter White. Hank punches Walter at the end and puts all the pieces together of how Walter has been sabotaging his investigation. But alas, Walter's cancer is back and he is trying to use the sympathy card. Don't know where Jesse's "trying to give away the blood money" storyline is going. And Skyler was actually tolerable this episode.

I loved how Walter pulled a total Gus Fring while Lydia was with him at the Car Wash.

Walter has broke bad, and I think Jesse is "breaking good". His conscience has caught up to him and he hates what he did and wants nothing to do with that blood money. I think he eventually flips on Walter.

Definitely was NOT expecting that confrontation to happen in the first episode. Amazing! This whole time I was expecting the final eight episodes to be a slow march to Hank putting 2 and 2 together. Instead it looks like we're going to get Walt vs. Hank: Last Man Standing. Again: AMAZING!

Skyler's grown on me in the last season or so. She originally handled Walter's cancer diagnosis horribly selfishly but recently she's been much better, even if she isn't entirely likable.

I completely missed the Gus parallel, which is kind of stupid of me given how blatant and wonderful it was. I can definitely see Jesse turning on Walt if he ever gets proof that Mike's dead. It'd be fitting as well given that Mike is probably the one person Walter's killed out of sheer anger/arrogance rather than out of some sense of self preservation.

I watch the show every so often, but something I've picked up on is that Hank is no dummie, he's just matching hits against someone super smart. Walter's pride is the equalizer though - complete with him almost immediately resorting to threats at the end of the episode. I think they be on even footing now.

Jesse is now a liability. Death imminent.

Walt's "Tread lightly" was a HOLY SHIT! moment for sure. Basically telling Hank he can't prove a thing before he dies and challenging him to try. I was also wondering where Walt is going to use his hidden ricin as shown in the future opening segment.

After 5 (or 6, depending on how you look at it) seasons, I hope that Dean Norris gets some sort of recognition during TV awards season. This guy has been such a key supporting character in this series.

Even how Walter vomitted into the toilet was similar to Gus Fring... turned the water from the sink on, laid a towel down for his knees.

from another message board:


    In Breaking Bad, Walt has a habit of taking on some little traits of the people he has killed.

    When Walt killed Crazy 8, he started cutting off the crusts of his sandwiches – just as Crazy 8 had done. Gus drives a Volvo. After Walt kills Gus, at the beginning of Season 5 (at the Denny’s), Walt is driving a Volvo (w/ NH plates). When Mike and Walt meet at a bar in an earlier season, Walt orders his drink neat while Mike has his on the rocks. After Mike is killed, and Hank offers Walt a drink in his office – he asks for it on the rocks.

    At that same scene at Denny’s, Walt arranges his bacon into his new age. Someone else used to do that. On top of that, he’s using Skyler’s maiden name on his fake ID.

    Based on his history of picking up traits from his victims – I believe Walt is going to murder Skyler before the series is over, and it probably had already happened before he showed up at the Denny’s in the Season 5 cold open.

If I remember correctly, at the beginning of the series Hank didn't appear to have much, if any, respect for Walt. He seemed to view Walt as some pussy henpecked geek.

Now compare that with the fear in his eyes when Heisenberg pulled up in front of his garage. He looked like he was about to shit himself.

Vince Gilligan was saying something about how the show was about transformations on "Talking Bad" last night. That's one of my favorite transformations right there.




'But if one is struck by me only a little, that is far different, the stroke is a sharp thing and suddenly lays him lifeless, and that man's wife goes with cheeks torn in lamentation, and his children are fatherless, while he, staining the soil with his red blood, rots away, and there are more birds than women swarming about him.'

I have a feeling Walt got into contact with Saul's "friend" who relocates people into new identities and the family is in New Hampshire (because of the tags on the Volvo). He did all this for his family, so I don't think he would have WILLINGLY killed Skyler. Now, accidentally, on the other hand...

Walt was also wearing Jesse's jacket when he said "Hello" to his neighbor in the flashforward.

I changed my comic book podcast to a Breaking Bad podcast for August. Thankfully, a Breaking Bad comic book is out there to justify my cheapness of not building a new site. Strong language on the reviews. I am doing an episode review later and will edit into this post. As for the episode, shit was on when the garage door came down.

This article made me feel feelings.


    Although the final moments of Sunday’s Breaking Bad left viewers with plenty of questions yet to be answered—chief among them whether Walter’s scheme to move the air fresheners will pay off, or just cost him another piece of his soul—one of the most immediate was the identity of one Kevin Cordasco, to whom the episode was dedicated. Well, The Hollywood Reporter has answered that, and it’s heartbreaking: Cordasco was a 16-year-old Breaking Bad fan who died in March, after a six-year battle with cancer. And as his father says in the article, Cordasco found inspiration (and finally, a good kind) in Walter’s own struggles with the disease: “There was something about the Walter White character … the way he took control of his illness, and his life, that really resonated with Kevin.” Eventually, Cordasco asked his godmother to use her industry connections to help him meet creator Vince Gilligan and the cast of the show he loved so much.

    Not surprisingly, because he is awesome, Bryan Cranston responded immediately, with Cordasco’s father saying, “Bryan and his wife sat with Kevin for hours at the hospital. And then Vince came to our house, along with some of the cast. They even invited Kevin to the writers’ room. He was beyond thrilled.” What’s more, as Gilligan related on the Breaking Bad Insiders podcast, he even offered to tell Cordasco how the show would end, so long as he kept it to himself. And yet Cordasco refused this cop-out, saying he wanted to find out along with everyone else. Which, given the circumstances, is incredibly sad—but also, suitably badass.
