GREATEST


SHOW


EVAR


!!!!!!

i wouldn't go that far

the shield & the wire have had much better death scenes

The shield & the wire didn't kill 200 people in a mid-air collision over ABQ


Yeah, and that was pretty lame.

Crudbucket: I was actually specifically mocking the ridiculous and unfounded speculations that there's something more to Gomez than just being Gomez


Why ridiculous and unfounded? Sure, the easy answer is that he's just a reasonably competent partner for a reasonably competent Hank. But how often has this show taken the easy, superficial answer?

Crudbucket: only reason they showed Hank looking at surveillance photos during a briefing meeting was to illustrate his difficulty at adjusting to being a supervisor


Saying there's an *only* reason for any shot in any show more complex than Wheel Of Fortune is overly simplistic. Sure, maybe it's *solely* a heavy handed "SEE HANK ISN'T A SUPERVISOR!" but that's not giving the show much credit, is it? Particularly given how much credit the show has earned a right to have....

Crudbucket: To clue you in on this, his boss spent several minutes yelling at him about the difficulty at adjusting to being a supervisor instead of a street agent, and that the higher-ups want to put an end to the Fring investigation.


Sure.

That doesn't mean he didn't see something, or piece a couple things together, while lost in thought. Wouldn't even be the first "a ha!" moment in the show that tries to redeem him as a competent investigator.

I find it interesting that you're so insistent upon everything being only simplistic, first-read-is-true straightforward storytelling. This program has been much more creative than that, and deserves some credit in idle speculation for more imagination, doesn't it?

Crudbucket: /for extra credit, look up "knowing what the hell you're talking about."


Interesting. Never got into The Wire (somehow working too hard for TV time when it hit, and the dvd rips of season one sit unwatched waiting for the mood to strike)... but you'll note I did say, "wonder if that's true..." before deciding that the hoofbeats of clumsily worded use of one of the most commonly *wildly* misused words were from horses of misuse, not zebras of "every actually-penultimate episode of The Wire had a death." I'm assuming the rest of the show isn't that predictable, given how much of a following it has... but now I wonder. Hmmm.

SFSailor: I think the big question right now is, "who knows how much?" I think the bug was already burned -- did we learn anything from it, any time after its immediate placement? I don't think so -- budget calls, charity fund raising, scheduling, nothing important. Yeah, that could be "wow, Hank's new job is boring," or it *could* be -- "they knew the bug was there, and wanted to see who would pick it up." Incidentally, this supports the notion of noticing the bug in a sweep, but not having a camera until the bug is discovered. On the other hand, knowing who *placed* it, and if they did, who knew, relies on the cameras being there first.


Did we learn anything from it? They learned plenty from it. All those times Mike was listening to it on the computer? He was always one step ahead because he had the bug. Even until the very end, that's why he had time to get rid of all his shiat before the cops came with the warrant. There is no farking camera. This is the new "Jesse's arm moved and he didn't really shoot Gale." They just changed farking camera angles.

SFSailor: At first, I was all, "huh, I wonder if that's true - the penultimate episode usually has someone important die?" ...

... then I realized: You two don't have any idea what penultimate means, do you? Sheesh.


I was going to sit here and educate you about what I was talking about since your reading comprehension is apparently as lacking as your viewing comprehension, but since Crudbucket beat me to it, I'll just tell you to go fark yourself.

SFSailor: Interesting. Never got into The Wire (somehow working too hard for TV time when it hit, and the dvd rips of season one sit unwatched waiting for the mood to strike)...


You wouldn't like it. There aren't enough asinine and meaningless conspiracies to speculate on.

but you'll note I did say, "wonder if that's true..."

And you made a decision without doing anything beyond wondering, like *actually looking up what people were farking talking about*

before deciding that the hoofbeats of clumsily worded use of one of the most commonly *wildly* misused words were from horses of misuse, not zebras of "every actually-penultimate episode of The Wire had a death."

So, rather than actually read and respond to what I wrote, you responded to what you thought I was doing? You're a farking douchebag. Seriously, you are the worst kind of person. You are completely wrong. Not only did I use the word "penultimate" correctly, I correctly used it to accurately describe what I was talking about. When proven completely wrong, you couldn't even mea cupla. Farking twit.

I'm assuming the rest of the show isn't that predictable, given how much of a following it has... but now I wonder. Hmmm.

Again, you wouldn't like it. Saying "Someone dies" in an episode of "The Wire" is like saying "McNulty is an asshole" it's true for pretty much every episode. There's a particular significance to the person who dies in the penultimate episode of "The Wire" and it's usually someone you didn't expect. That said, you still shouldn't watch it, you wouldn't like it.

Will you two cut it out before I have to pass around the "Talking Pillow"? ;)

And I figured out what the M-60 is for. Walt is going to keep it in his house so Skylar will feel safe and let Walt have the kids back. Junior will then wear a pith helm and turn anyone that goes near his breakfast into tomato paste.

SFSailor: recognizing Lydia


That's not Lydia in picture; it's the waitress or something. The diner scene had booths. Mike is sitting at table in picture.
 
2012-08-28 12:20:37 PM  

NeoCortex42: Just to clarify something, I'm pretty sure there's only 7 loose ends left.

Lydia gave Mike the list of the 9 guys that worked with him. Chou got killed, and the guy who killed Chou got killed by Mike.

With Todd's prison contacts, and the fact that the loose ends are in separate facilities, it's not that unreasonable to think they could all be taken out before they catch on to what is happening. Unfortunately, the window is pretty small since they will know very soon that their lawyer has been picked up and is flipping, with all of their money confiscated.


The original list had 11 names, 12 if you count Mike. Pay attention.

No, it doesn't. What makes this show fantastic is that it *doesn't* do stupid reveals about the "true, secret identity" of anyone. The entire point of the show is Walt's secret identity, and we know all about that. Everyone else is exactly as they're painted. Gus was a kingpin. Hank is a DEA agent, and his partner is, too. Skylar is a shrill controlling harpy who has lost control. Saul is a scumbag lawyer. Having one of them turn into some kind of secret agent would be cheap, and this show has never done that.

The resolution of this is when we get to witness their discovery of Walt's secret identity.

/ They all die, leaving Walt alone.

Also, Mike obviously would've shaken a tail on him before meeting Lydia.
Maybe Hank did see something; the music certainly implied it. But it's just as likely they were farking with us.

Really? You sure? I'm pretty sure Lydia said "9". At any rate, it makes sense that the lawyer would still be paying off the families of Chou and the other guy to keep them quiet.

It would not be cool, it would be stupid. See Rent Party's above post for my thoughts. They don't do stupid surprises, and any time they've ever had a "shocking" moment, you can go back and find evidence that foreshadows that particular moment. There is zero evidence that Gomie is mole/plant/informant or anything other than a DEA agent.

Okay, I just re-watched the diner scene. My mistake. No idea why I was remembering it wrong. You're right, there were eleven names initially.

Well, "Boxcutter" was initially called "El Topo". Which is "the mole" in Spanish. Never got an explanation of the switch. And Gomie does seem to pop up at intriguing moments.

I could be an asshole and pull a *citation needed*, but since I don't want to and I'm too lazy to look it up, I'll take it that you know what you're talking about. That being said, how do you know that "the mole" was referring to Gomie and not someone else?

Killing Mike leaves Walt completely defensless to whoever wants to come along and take over his business. Walt fancies himself a badass, while Mike was a genuine badass.

Ted gave Skylar a taste of power, so he had to live. Mike gave Walt the illusion of power, so he had to die.

Yep, and Mike was ready when Hank arrived with the search warrant. And Hank was plenty confused that Mike was so calm and there was no evidence in the house. 100% proof that Hank didn't know about the bug.

Mike got shot. When we last saw him he was bleeding on the table while they worked on Gus. We were never lead to believe he was dead and then he magically came back because of the bullet proof mcguffin nobody knew about.

Gilligan's story lines do not go that way. They never have. I can't recall a single instance of that kind of stupid "plot twist" in the entirety of the series.

Ted was only "presumed to be dead" by us. For your theory to be true, Walt would have to watch Mike fall to the ground and then immediately turn around and leave. He won't do that. He'll get rid of the body.

The "making of" video with Jonathan Banks crying and the cast in black arm bands suggest that Mike is, in fact, deceased.

2012-08-28 09:35:19 PM  
Finally finished watching the entire series so now I can read this thread....everyone's gone but I still am going to make a prediction...I don't know if anyone else has mentioned it, but I didn't see Walt get rid of the poisoned cig....his wife Skyler (stuid name) has started smoking more and more and getting to be way to biatchy...if she threatens too much to either turn Walt in or get the kids out of his life for good, she's going to end up sucking on that Resin cig and end up dead.

Also, Walt really has turned into an irredeamable bad guy...nothing about him anymore makes him the hero of this story. His brother in law is now the hero of the story, and eventually he will bring Walt down, or Jessie will end up shooting Walt. either or.

Wolf892: Finally finished watching the entire series so now I can read this thread....everyone's gone but I still am going to make a prediction...I don't know if anyone else has mentioned it, but I didn't see Walt get rid of the poisoned cig....his wife Skyler (stuid name) has started smoking more and more and getting to be way to biatchy...if she threatens too much to either turn Walt in or get the kids out of his life for good, she's going to end up sucking on that Resin cig and end up dead.

There is no ricin cigarette. There was a vial of ricin hidden in a cigarette. He took the vial out of the cigarette and hid the vial in an electrical outlet.

ckevinc: Quick thought. What if Mike wasn't killed?
Could've had a bullet proof vest on and was only slightly injured and played dead


Given Walt's penchant for acid-vat disposal, Mike would be kicking himself for not thinking his cunning plan all the way through.

It will still end up killing her though...

Crudbucket: "He closed his eyes before he pulled the trigger to just wing the kid. You can totally see it if you watch frame by frame and squint and tilt your head to the left a little bit."


It was me that made that statement, and I corrected myself within a few hours of making it after noticing the bullet hole in the back of the kid's jacket.

The ricin may, or may not end up killing Sky, but there have been way too many people talking about a ricin laced cigarette so it needs to be pointed out YET AGAIN that there never has, and never will be a ricin cigarette.

I just had a thought.

At the beginning of the series when Sky is biatching at Walt about using the wrong credit card to buy ink or paper for the printer they were obviously super strapped for cash.

How did they manage to maintain their pool in ABQ while being so poor?

Anyone from that area know what the water costs would be?

You know, I never thought about the pool. Let me speculate.
- They don't use it that often anymore. Maybe for BBQs, but not the family. Walt Jr. doesn't strike me as a swimmer.
- during droughts, they just let it dry up. It's just not that important to them.
- Walt is a chemist. He either has access to or can cobble together, great pool cleaning/algae killing agents at a fraction of the price. This keeps the pool looking great even when no one uses it.

Am I even watching the same show as you people?

Walt 'keeps the pool looking great'? Are you trying to say Walt has control of the pool? You are crazy.

Things we KNOW about the pool:

The pool is blue (like the meth - obvious color link should make the rest of this post no surprise to any fan of the show that is paying any attention)
The pool has tried to kill Skylar (probably because Skylar was starting to distract Walt)
When the pink teddy bear was floating in the pool, it is foreshadowing that the pool will eventually kill the baby (probably to remove any distractions from Walt's life, focusing him solely on production)
Rearrange the letters in pool -> polo ->Pollos Hermanos. Clearly the pool was Fring's boss too.
We have seen plenty of camera shots from inside the pool. The DEA is watching the pool, they suspect something is up.
Were else has the pool shown itself openly? That's right - when Fring took out the Mexican cartel. Also, the plane crash happened DIRECTLY above the pool. Coincidence?

The pool is the real kingpin people.

And you could say bathtubs and barrels filled with liquid are mini-pools, so it's been the pool killing all those people.

We're through the looking pool, guys!

I bet the pool ends up smoking the ricin cigarette.
