mycathatesyou: Ricin is in his house, in the bedroom. If he kills Skylar, he'll have to raise the baby on his own.


But how much can he trust the baby...
 
2012-07-30 10:06:15 AM  
He claims he just turned 52 in the flashforward - that doesn't mean he really did. If he's under an assumed name/identity, he would get something close to his own age, but I doubt he would pick an ID with his exact birthday on it.

Or Jr. for that matter. He should just drop the ricin in the water supply.

so, am i alone in thinking that just MAYBE mike could have talked to walt about "legacy costs" a little BEFORE he was standing in front of a pile of money to divvy out?

because had i been walt, i would have balked a bit too.

The way he arranged the bacon into '52' and how he was acting made it seem like it really was his birthday. I get the impression that by the time we catch up to the flash-forward, the rest of his family is either dead or in danger and he's been on the run. I would guess he's been running from Gus' higher-ups. It it was the DEA after him, I don't see what good a single gun is going to do.

Grungehamster: Since people were asking about the bee in the preview, that was the logo on the phenylacetic acid tanks that Jessie and Walt were using. Remember when Jessie was in Mexico and they were expecting him to make the phenylacetic acid from scratch and he couldn't? It was because he was used to just getting it out of "a can with a bee on it."

No idea why the hot-water-with-lemon woman freaked out over the symbol, but that is how we know about it already.


also - remember this - the previews farking LIE. my guess will be that the entire teaser was a lie, and all that shiat was just spliced together to LOOK interesting.
 
2012-07-30 10:33:16 AM  
I think the best acted moment of last night was Walt's reaction when Jesse was talking about the agitator motor not fitting in the box and offering the solution. It was exactly the reaction you'd see from a teacher when a student displays mastery of a subject.

Yep, it would have made sense... if Mike didn't purposefully avoid mentioning it, along with all the other back end costs he brought up. I definitely saw that scene as Mike trying to show Walt that he is the one running the operation now and that Walt better not be getting any ideas that he has any leverage in this relationship. Like he said: just because Walt killed Jessie James doesn't make him Jessie James.

Walt said Mike stepped out of bounds; I think he did so on purpose to show Walt that the former chemistry teacher isn't really running the show like he thinks he is.


The pissing contest between Walt and Mike is definitely going to be the one of the hightlights of this season.
 
2012-07-30 10:33:58 AM  
Mike thinks he's in charge and Walt thinks he's in charge.
Nice.

and yet, without walt, Mike had nothing. don't forget that the only reason mike went back to walt was when the DEA took all of mike's money. Mike is swinging his dick around when maybe he really shouldn't, at least yet. He should have discussed ALL the costs with walt BEFORE he "reconsidered", since suddenly walt has 9 guys on his "payroll" that he knew nothing about until "payday". mike needs to remember that walt KEEPS coming back on top no matter who he is up against.
 
2012-07-30 10:40:13 AM  
Walt is going to find a way to fark it up. After Mike was giving the expenses and Walt was crying about the legacy and transport charges. And I knew he would screw it up at the meeting when Mike said "I handle the business. You cook." Then Walt got all smug and said he handles Mike.
I wouldnt mind being one of the exterminator guys. An extra $10k just to do your job and ignore them, sweet deal and however much the owner gets is even better.

MightyPez: bionicjoe: So no one has noticed that Skyler now smokes occasionally & Walt has a cigarette full of ricin?

Well, you know, except he doesn't. He removed the ricin from the cigarette and hid in in an electrical outlet.


So, Skyler is going to smoke the electrical outlet.

By Tommy Westphall's snowglobe, I'd wet myself if he was the one that finally brought Walt down:

I think a lot of fans have been hoping for that starting in Season 1.

Nidiot: I think this might be where Walt becomes a character we no longer can have any sympathy for


And there it is right there. I've been reading this thread and this is (I think) the first mention of the point. My wife asked how it was tonight and after a pause I replied "It too this long but I finally don't root for Walt." A simple answer but since Walt said "I won" he crossed over from hero to anti-hero and now to a guy I really don't like. The funny thing was is that I hadn't even realized it yet. I guess the "moment" was how he left Jesse.

Iksar: ronmexico27: Grey Street: ronmexico27: Trocadero: .
You mean Lance?

Well played.

On a different note, my wife described the episode as "boring." WTF? I thought it was pretty good; you can't have a bunch of murders every episode, and they did a good bit to advance the storyline, imho.

Anyone have any idea what the song was that was playing while Walt & Jesse were cooking? I liked it.


Took me a hell of a time to find it. Shazam got it wrong, and a Google lyric search didn't do much good. Finally found it on an AMC wiki board. "On a Clear Day You Can See Forever" by The Peddlers. From 1968. Found an MP3 on Google. Watched the video on YouTube. I was surprised the lead singer's a white guy. Great tune from a band I never heard of.


Awesome find. Thanks!
 
2012-07-30 11:33:58 AM  
I haven't sympathized with Walt since the beginning. I want Jesse to be the last man standing.

Every time I want to not root for Walt, he pulls something like what he did with Marie and *totally redeems himself*. I might not be rooting for Walt the man, but I'm totally rooting for Walt the Character Arc.

Skylar is a weak link. I think she needs to die, I think Walt knows it, and I think he's going to kill her and make it look like a suicide - Maybe for the 8-ep mid-season finale?

Landry!!!!

I am starting to think this way too. I'm actually rooting for Jesse now. I think too many overlook him, and he'll do something pretty drastic this season. While he is ever loyal to Walt, I think that Walt is starting to make him very nervous about his place in the organization. On top of that, he has built a strong relationship with Mike. Mike recognizes what Jesse is capable of and actually treats him with respect, almost like he's training an apprentice. This could be the final 'showdown' we are headed for: Walt v. Mike/Jesse

mycathatesyou: I haven't sympathized with Walt since the beginning. I want Jesse to be the last man standing.


Jesse's the only one who deserves to be left standing at this rate. He wanted to back out many times, but kept getting talked into it, and pushed to go farther towards the dark side, by Walt. I don't know if Jesse will be the one to eventually stop Walt, but there certainly has to be a major confrontation sooner or later.

If Jesse decides to side with Mike when the shiat hits the fan, Mike could try to use Jesse to off Walt the same way Walt tried to use him to get rid of Gus.

phimuskapsi: SkylineRecords: We've gone this far in the post, and no one has mentioned that Skinny Pete plays piano beautifully???

Yeah that part shocked the hell out of me, was not expecting that.


It sort of makes sense, though. One of the themes of the show seems to be people not taking the opportunities they could. Walt was a gifted chemist who worked on a Nobel-quality project, but walked away. Jesse was a slacker in school and always seemed like a worthless druggie, but over the last season or so, has shown that he can be very bright when he commits himself. Skinny Pete could have probably made an honest living as a pianist, but chose a life of drugs instead.

Speaking of which, do we really know why Walt left Grey Matter? Do we just assume it was because of a love triangle with his two friends? It seems like helping to set up a company like that would have allowed him to move to another prestigious position. Or at least something better paying than a high school teacher.
 
2012-07-30 11:44:51 AM  
I think Walt will try to make Jesse do his dirty work again first by offing Mike.
 
2012-07-30 11:45:08 AM  

violentsalvation: VTGremlin: I thought it was pretty awesome when Marie hugged Walt like he was the victim and then he walked into the hallway and struck the stereotypical man about to beat his wife pose. Good shiat.

He should have hit the liquor, not the apple.


It could symbolize something, like "the fall." Just postulating here.

Mike can't make enough money to avoid the DEA and take care of his granddaughter without Walt's product to sell.

Walt can't make enough money to cover his losses and live the life he wants without Mike's connections and enforcement ability.

Both are very talented at making powerful enemies, somehow surviving impossible odds, and leaving their foes as bloodstains on the curb. Seriously: look at how many times Mike has been outgunned and somehow took everyone out. There are a few times that Walt considered going after Gus before last season's finale, and Mike stepped in before Walt even tried to act to let him know he'd fill him full of bullets before he made a move and ...


Mike saw Jesse make that product in Mexico without Walt. I'm not sure why Mike is bothering to deal with Walt at all at this point.

I was curious on the Gray Matter question and did some research. Apparently they touched on this briefly in S3. Basically Walt was dating this girl, Gray Matter started to run into issues and then his partner swoops in, takes the girl. Walt gets pissed and leaves the guy. Guy makes tons of money (think back to S1) and marries the girl that Walt loved. Then offers to pay for his chemo and stuff in S1. But it is rumored to be answered more fully this season...

I assumed that Walt needed something more stable after having Walt Jr (and the associated medical costs) than a start up that could always be chasing funding. I think there's some resentment toward Walt Jr for it.

Yeah, that's about what I figured happened. But even with all of that, there's no reason Walt couldn't have ended up somewhere better than teaching HS. He still had a record of excellent work experience. The whole thing just seems a bit odd.

I have a strong feeling, after the last season and most of this one, that this isn't Walt's first rodeo on the "Gray" side of the law. Maybe they were working on weapons, or maybe that's where the blue meth originally came from, etc. etc.
 
2012-07-30 12:04:48 PM  

mycathatesyou: I think Walt will try to make Jesse do his dirty work again first by offing Mike.


That's where it'll all get hairy...Walt will try to have Jesse do it, Jesse respect Mike b/c Mike looked after him, and that'll be the inevitable Breaking point (pun intended) we've seen every season, where Jesse and Walt duke it out. Sal will either confess to Mike or Jesse that it was Walt's plan to poison Brock, and I have a feeling Walt will kill Jesse, which will turn to a pissed of Mike, who will kill someone close to Walt (Skylar?) and Walt will go on the run.

Let's not forget the DEA breathing down Walt's neck. I have a feeling it'll come to light soon that Hank figured it all out, that Walt was Heisenberg, and will get his back since Walt took care of him after the shootings.

We fast forward to the 52nd scene...I think Walt's had enough of being on the run, and is going after Mike, and that's how it ends.

Of course, I'm probably wrong (and of course there will be farkers that will confirm that), and The ended will be Jesse v. Walt to end the show.

Breaking Bad was a colossal flop on UK tv, likely since the show doesn't make any sense there because of the National Health Service.

Think about it: In a world of universal health insurance/health care, none of the plot would have happened at all.

Jesse knows the recipe, but Walt knows the chemistry. If things needed to be improvised or adjusted, Walt is infinitely more valuable than Jesse.

FinFangFark: We fast forward to the 52nd scene...I think Walt's had enough of being on the run, and is going after Mike, and that's how it ends.


I have a feeling that in that situation, Mike would be very capable of disappearing to the point where Walt couldn't find him. The only way Walt gets the drop on Mike is if it's a sudden shootout or if Walt tries to kill him secretly (ricin or conspiring with Jesse). If Mike and Walt part ways as enemies, the advantage has to go to Mike.

I don't think that's the case. The primary motivation for Walt initially wasn't so much paying for treatment as it was supplying his family with money after he dies.

Oh, absolutely. If Gus was pretty much running his own thing, the executives could have probably gotten away with just being ignorant of what was happening and maybe getting a slap on the wrist. I have no doubt that the operation went all the way to the top. I'm sure Pollos Hermanos wasn't the only shady business they ran.

I liked how one of the restaurant brands you see at Madrigal's HQ is Burger Matic, the logo for which is, of course, a stylized "BM".

cochlear: try fect taa daa: anyone catch the title of that book the camera focused on?

A well- read copy of Walt Whitman's "Leaves of Grass". Why?? I have no idea.

Also, did anyone catch that they were watching the SAME PREVIEWS FOR AMC'S "MOB WEEK" that we were!? wow.


Gale had once recited a poem of Whitman's to Walt, when they were cooking it. I think the implication is that the poem/Gale meant enough to Walt that he picked up a copy of the book for himself. Looking at the book as he unpacked brought back that memory of Gale, hence the pause and smile. The whole segment seemed to be there to remind us that Walt is capable of killing someone that he likes, possibly foreshadowing the death of Skylar or Jessie....

I'd put money on Skylar dying by Walt's hand. The way she's going, Walt will see her as too much of a risk to keep around. I don't think Jesse is going to die, but if he does it would be while trying to carry out some order from Walt. I think Walt wants Jesse alive because he thinks he has him so wrapped around his finger, that he's the only person he actually trusts not to betray him.

I don't care how much of a heartless asshole Walt becomes, I will always be a fan of his character and be on his side. I relate to him way more than anyone else in the show, by a long shot.

Of course, the irony of your post is that it's not Walt's intelligence that will be (and has been) his undoing, but his arrogance.

I haven't made it through all of the comments but let me ask, just why should Walt and Jesse just take Mike's word for it that the money he took from their cuts is going where he claims it is going? I would think a little proof/assurance/insurance would be a justifiable request.

Exactly...Walt shows his superior intellect in solving problems, but then there are moments he goes pouty face, and acts out like a child for the sake of his ego. We found it endearing in the early seasons because it made what appeared to be a weak frail man into a stronger person. There was a breaking point where that same quality has become the center of many of their problems, and will ultimately be why does him and his family in.

But that doesn't excuse his dumbass wife. She busted his balls constantly about manufacturing meth, but have no problem take all that money to help her piece of ass out of prison. My wife and I feel zero sympathy for her.

gunga galunga: titwrench: This whole series is going to end right back at season 1 with Walt waking up from some sort of fever dream brought on NY his cancer meds and he is going to roll over, look at Skyler Lois...

"Lois, I had the strangest dream last night."
"Unless your dream going to make breakfast for the boys, Hal, I'm not interested."


I like yours better. Old school Bob Newhart.

Also, next time I am talking to a salesman, I am totally working "Yo, I'm trying to do business over here, biatch!" into the conversation.
