Pretty low key episode. We know that Skylar is on Walter's side as she wouldn't confess to Hank. Saul suggested to Walter to send Hank to where Mike went and Walter drew the line that they don't go after family. Walter ends up burying all the money he had at the self-storage facility, memorized the coordinates and bought a lottery ticket with these GPS numbers. Meanwhile, Lydia finds out where the sub-standard meth were being manufactured and with the help of Todd and friends eliminated these guys. Jesse Pinkman is nabbed by the Cops or DEA and the episode ends with Hank going in to question him as the two investigators went to take a smoke break.

Let's also not forget that awesome scene between Skyler and Marie, possibly topped by Marie angrily telling Hank to catch Walt. Arguably Betsy Brandt's best moments on the show.

This episode was also some of Anna Gunn's finest work on the show. I thought at the start of the scene we were going to get Marie talking Skyler round, then with every word from Marie started remembering just how far into this she was and how long she's (willingly or otherwise) enabled Walt's life of crime. She certainly isn't a willing member of Team Walt but at this stage she doesn't feel like she has another choice.

Todd showed a much more caring side than we've seen before when he was shielding Lydia's eyes from the massacre. Sure, he was chiefly responsible for the massacre, and he did shoot a kid that one time but....call it even?

I swear when the credits rolled it felt like 20 minutes had gone by. These episodes are ridiculously good.

There's a whole 'lotta great acting from people who do not have all that much dialogue. Skylar sitting there crying, answering every single one of Marie's questions without uttering a word. Jesse with this constant look of anguish - did he even have a single line or word in the entire episode?

I got a bit of a Dexter-vibe from Todd in that scene - almost as if he knew this is how a real person would act, but yet he had know idea as to why she wouldn't want to see the carnage. Lord, is Lydia in way over her head. She's a bit like Walt in some ways - a seemingly everyday, average person who has turned to this life of horrific consequence just to make money.

Walt's beginning to panic... and you can see the edges starting to tear ever so slightly. To think we have 6 episodes and 11 months to go...

*Hank enters the room with Jesse*
Me: "I've been waiting for this all year."
*Credits roll*
Me: "MOTHERFUCKER!"

In 5.8 "Gliding Over All", Marie told Skyler that "It has been almost three months, right? Almost three?" re: them having the kids. It has to be at least three months since Walt's 51st.

In episode 5.4 "Fifty One", on Walt's 51st birthday, Skyler jumps into the pool and gets Hank and Marie to take the kids. In 5.5 "Dead Freight", we see the kids at Hank and Marie's place.

By my count, we have about eight months, at most, until the flash forward. Why eight? Hank took a couple weeks off from work to gather evidence on Walt before their confrontation last episode.

I always thought of him as more of an overgrown man-child trying to act as he thinks the grown-ups around him would want him to, but in light of what he's done Dexter might be a better comparison.


    Lord, is Lydia in way over her head. She's a bit like Walt in some ways - a seemingly everyday, average person who has turned to this life of horrific consequence just to make money.
I was wondering if we'd hear from Gus' Chilean connections that were alluded to in season 4 but that would just muddy things unnecessarily now with Lydia and Hank's storylines featuring prominently. Lydia is horribly out of her depth but she can at least rely on more competent assistance than Walt at this point (not that Huell and Kuby aren't outstanding in their own way).

Gilligan has said in interviews that Gus' connection was Augusto Pinochet.

A few things for me to echo:

1. The acting these two episodes has been ridiculous. Everyone has been awesome. It is scary how good these two episodes have been.

2. I yelled "motherfucker" also when they went to commercial. I thought for sure we would get Hank/Jesse.

3. I think Todd and Lydia are over their heads. However, I think Lydia knows it while Todd is blissfully unaware of how bad things are going to turn out.

4. The scene with Marie and Skylar came thisclose to topping Walt and Hank from last week. I loved it when Marie slapped her and when she told Hank to get Walt. Marie's best scenes ever.

5. I am 100% positive time moves faster watching this show as every time i look at the clock, like Leroy said, it feels like the episode is ending and I just settled in.

6. I did not realize it until Leroy stated it but I do not think Jesse said one word. That was unreal and I was shocked I did not pick up on it. Watching him unravel has been mesmerizing.

6. I have watched a lot of TV over the course of my life and I can say easily this is the best show I have ever seen. It has been consistently strong every season and the acting and writing are second to none. At this point, Breaking Bad is just adding distance between first and second place.

7. I am tired of guessing how this will end because I am always wrong. When co-workers ask me what I think I tell them I have no clue and I love it.

8. Sunday night can not come fast enough.



Life is hilariously cruel.

by the way, dont go using Walt's GPS numbers to go find the money. The actually location using the numbers is:


Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read
ABQ Studios in Albuquerque, NM, where Breaking Bad is filmed

Lydia, I agree with.

Todd - I think Todd is playing along, which is why I think of Dexter. He seemed genuinely shocked that Mike and Walt were upset when he killed Drew Sharp ('Oh, so were not killing kids? My bad...'). He seemed pretty baffled that Lydia wouldn't want to survey the carnage she helped orchestrate after his folks wiped out the meth producers.

I think he's got that Howdy Doody look down, which makes it easy to underestimate him, yet underneath is a strategically minded psychopath who is strongly connected to some pretty nasty dudes.

Granted, I doubt he'll survive through the next 6 episodes, but I don't think he's as unaware as people may think.

We talk about the Walt/Hank fall out, who is worse Skylar or Mrs. Schroeder from Boardwalk Empire and Josh is sick of your fucking zombie stories. All this and a side of Walt Jr...International Kingpin. Enjoy.

I loved the first two seasons. I can not wait for season 3. I'm glad Curtis kept his word and got rid of the popularity contest finale for season 2 that they had in season 1.
