Wow, after 3 episodes of Jesse not talking he really exploded this episode!

Instead of showing us immediately what happens with Jesse and Hank, they show Todd tell 2 other guys how they did the train heist. Todd also left a message for Walt about what he did, eliminating the other guy and taking over operations. I'm sure these guys will intersect with the main storyline eventually.

Back to Hank and Jesse. Hank goes in and turns off the camcorder and offers Jesse immunity if he confesses against Hank. Jesse tells him to eat it. Before Hank can really entice Jesse with the idea of putting Walt away, Saul Goodman barges in with the 2 officers that were originally interviewing Jesse. Since Hank has a history with beating up Jesse, Saul was able to shut the interview down with threat of suing them.

Cut to Walt at home. We finally hear Walt "Flynn" Jr after 3 episodes. Walt goes into the bathroom to try to cover up his black eyes (from Hank's garage beatdown) with make-up but Walt Jr was about to go to Aunt Marie's house to fix her computer and have dinner so he had to grab Jr before he gets out of there. Of course, Walter is the master of psychology and guilt trips Walt Jr to stay on his own free will on account of Walter's cancer coming back and him passing out last night.

Walter and Skyler films Walter in his bedroom, supposedly confessing to his crimes. Marie and Hank meet up with Walter and Skyler at a Mexican restaurant and when things start to get intense, the waiter keeps interrupting to lighten up the mood. lol Walter wants Hank and Marie to leave the kids alone. Marie got really pissed and told Walt he should just kill himself since he wants Hank to wait for him to die from cancer, get it over with. Walter leaves a DVD for them as he leaves with Skyler. Hank and Marie plays the video at home and Walter is confessing... that Hank is the mastermind of the whole meth operation, and Hank is responsible for Gus Fring's death. He also dropped the bomb that he has been paying for Hank's medical bills with drug money. When Walt tried to get out, Hank beat him up and threatened his family. Marie suggested that Hank comes clean and give the confession to his people before Walter can use it against them but the fact that his medical bills were paid from drug money puts a squash to that idea...

Walter had Saul get Jesse out of jail and Jesse and Saul meets up with Walter in the middle of the desert. Walter tries to convince Jesse to get a new identity and start over, saying he wishes he could change places with Jesse and have his whole life ahead of him. Jesse gets emotional because he sees through Walter and Walter is trying to work him with his "father figure" talks. He wants Walt to just tell him straight up that if he doesn't disappear, he is going to kill him like he killed Mike. Jesse just wants Walt to ask him for a favor instead of making it sound like it's what's best for Jesse, not Walt. They hug it out.

Walter goes to call Skyler to work the cash register as he has to go to chemo but Skyler was all out of it, her eyes were glazed over. She finally snapped out of it and went to the register. Saul and Jesse goes over what he has to do to disappear. He can't be late, there's no UNDO. Asked if Jesse has a phone and because Jesse didn't, he gives him a disposeable phone with Hello Kitty on it. lol Jesse lights up a doobie and Saul had him put it out. The guy won't take him if he is high. Saul demands the bag of joints but Jesse ignores him and puts the bag in his pocket. He bumps into Huell as he tries to walk out the door. At the pick up spot on the highway, Jesse grabs his pack of smokes... then he is looking for his bag of joints and he can't find it. I can just imagine that scene from Scott Pilgrim when the meter in his brain went from "No Clue" to "Gets it." A van stops to pick him up but he walks right past it.

Jesse barges into Saul Goodman's office and beats the crap out of Saul. Saul goes from a gun in his drawer but Jesse gets it first and fends off Heull and the secretary. He finally figured out that Heull took his box of cigarettes, took out the cigarette with the ricin, and Walt used it to poison Brock. Saul admits to all this. Jesse leaves and Saul calls Walt immediately.

Skyler can't seem to get her mind right, giving a customer a 5 instead of a 1 dollar bill. Outside of the carwash, you can see Walt speed into the front and slowly and calmly enter the door. He tells Skyler he is going to check on the Coke machine's latch but in reality he has a gun in there (now frozen). Guess he is getting ready for the wrath of Jesse Pinkman. Meanwhile, Jesse speeds to Walter's house, knocks down some garden lamps, and breaks out a gas can from the trunk. The show ends with Jesse pouring gasoline all over Walt's house.

Awesome episode. Walt is the master manipulator.

We all know from the flash forward that Jessie doesn't set the house on fire. I am guessing that he sees Walt Jr and/or baby Molly, since kids are his weakness.

WOW.

Each time I think the acting and the writing in this show can't get better, I am happily proven wrong.

I could FEEL Hank just seething at Walt at the Mexican restaurant and barely holding back from getting up and beating him to death.

And then to see him completely defeated in the next scene watching the DVD was outstanding.

Usually in a show like this, there is a weak link or two. This show has none. There is not one thing about these episodes I would change.

As for how it ends, I still remain blissfully clueless as to how it will all go down. I only know that I will enjoy it 100%.

Only 7 more days to the next episode.

Can't believe Aaron Paul went from:

to winning an Emmy and killing it on this show.

Another great episode.

Todd speaking about Mr. White instead of Heisenberg is probably a key piece to that conversation. Todd name dropped his real name, even if his last name.

Finally Jesse talks outside of the first episode where he called the (assuming) homeless guy back, so that he could hive give him some money.

The demise just gets better and better. My prediction is that Walt lives while losing everything. In the end it means nothing for him. Then it's just a fight to stay alive.

Nice finger blocking the camera! Punk is so pissed off on Raw and on Twitter but he is always cheesing it up at the sets of his favorite shows.

So I need to clear up some confusion I have ... what's the actual timeframe from when Walt stole the ricin-cigarette to when Jesse discovered it?

“End Times,” Season 4, Episode 12, is where Brock was poisoned. That was about 2.5 months before Walt's 51st in “Live Free or Die,” Season 5, Episode 4.

From that point, Hank and Marie hold on to the kids for 3 weeks, then a few weeks pass after Hank reads the book, so it is about 6 months or so from Huell stealing the ricin when he frisked Jessie the first time to the 2nd time when he lifted the pot.

One of the show recaps I read this morning suggested a nice feature for the Season 5 DVD would be an hour of spliced together close ups of Hank's face while he's seething at Walt.

I don't have much to add here other than it's becoming nearly impossible to describe watching this season without delving into hyperbole. I'm just dying to know what happens while simultaneously never wanting the show to end.

That pretty much sums it up. It's hard to think of new ways each week to describe how great this show is.

I love the fact The Hug did absolutely nothing to relieve the tension I felt in that seen because there was still part of me waiting for Walt to turn. Awesome job by all involved.

A couple of weeks ago I really wanted Jesse to survive, but it's becoming more and more obvious the Jesse we knew and loved died some time ago. He's a shell of a man at this point and there is no escape for him.

Rallo dying was funny - unfortunately, it was a lot of work to get there. I didn't hate this episode as much as you did, but yeah it was mostly "just there."
