Walt is on a power trip. He works for no one.

bojon: Walt is on a power trip. He works for no one.


I'm eager to see what he's got up his sleeve in order to strike a deal with the men from Phoenix and avoid Mike putting a bullet in his head.

God, what the f*ck am I going to do for a year without Breaking Bad?

Next Sunday is the midseason finale, then we have to wait until next July for the final eight episodes.

Almost a year is not a midseason break. It's not even a regular season break.

Yeah, I'm not totally sure why they don't just call it two shortened seasons but it's Breaking Bad and if they say it's for the best, I trust them.

Can someone uh, send me a link? I'm at work. ViolentSalvation helped me out last week, but that site is not streaming tonight for some reason.

Aaron Paul's Twitter feed is worth a look. From a few days ago:
"Breaking Bad is about to Break Bad. The darkness is on the horizon. Can you feel it?"

And from a few hours ago:
"Dear everyone,
If you want to poop yourself watch Breaking Bad tonight. Thanks. Love,
Ap"

Maybe Walt does his big, bad, irredeemable thing tonight?

Are they not going to address the burning question of Walk Jr's morning culinary choices?

Skyler is going to off herself after Jr splatters himself in the challenger.
And she'll rat on Walt in the suicide note.

I say Walt finally decides to go after Skylar using the ricin and one or both of the kids is collateral damage.

Fark. IIRC, the only other times that he's said something similar were before Dead Freight and the opener. Shiat's going to get real tonight.

Scratch that, he said "On tonight's episode of breaking bad shiat hit'eths the fan." last week, which was probably the weakest ep of the season so far. Still, I'm hoping for something nutty.

Given that season 1 had only seven episodes, I'm good with that.

With nearly a year between episodes and probably separate DVD set releases, I can't figure out the distinction. Maybe it has to do with contract wording?

CavalierEternal: Yeah, I'm not totally sure why they don't just call it two shortened seasons but it's Breaking Bad and if they say it's for the best, I trust them.


Because AMC had already taken crap from Walking Dead fans for butchering their budget.

One extra long season of Breaking Bad split in half is just PR spin on their part. It's two shortened seasons.

NeoCortex42: I say Walt finally decides to go after Skylar using the ricin and one or both of the kids is collateral damage.


Possible.
I'm pretty certain that Skyler and at least one of the kids will die at Walt's hands before the season is over.

I've gone back and watched the first season this week. I think you're right. Walt has been playing Jesse like a rented accordion from the very beginning.
 
2012-08-26 10:16:07 PM
Maybe everybody turns on Walt and that's why he's running at the beginning of the season

I found it amusing that, immediately after he assures Jesse that no one else is going to die, he murders their former third partner.

I can't imagine that would go over well with his new Phoenix distribution crew, either.

He's either gonna cover up Mike's death or otherwise make it look like it wasn't his doing.

I think they telegraphed it a bit too much, though. Mike hit every "about to die" flag I can think of.

Bubblegum Tate: ontariolightning: Bubblegum Tate: HempHead: So now that Mike is dead, who is Walt going after with the machine gun in Episode 1?

defending himself against whoever from the cartels is out to avenge Gus. Shouldn't have spilled the beans to the Phoenix drug lords Walt

why would the cartel want to avenge Gus?
he killed that one whole cartel

not that cartel, but whichever higher-ups Gus was associated that made the cartel afraid to off Gus in the flashback


He worked for Pinochet and the cartel dude called him "Generalissimo" on the phone once.

I think my favorite part from the entire series is when Jesses heading to kill the guys that killed his girlfriend's (Andrea?) brother..and Walt just BAM!! Runs them over and shoots the one guy in the head. Freaking awesome!
 
2012-08-27 12:41:08 AM
Walt is such a goddamn asshole. Although this isn't as a douchey move as using the dollar bill from the car wash eyebrow guy in a vending machine.
 
2012-08-27 12:41:16 AM
Still not sure about the m60 - just looked at the dvd again to see. Both ammo cans are labeled tracer, you don't kill people with tracers, you set things on fire with them....

"Say my name."

"Noooooo, you want it. Ant it's okay to want it."

I think the lack of sex with Skyler is getting to Walt.

The box cutter scene where Gus kills Victor is the best TV scene in the history of anything. It's almost as good as the Godfather scene when Connie's baby is Christened.

IMO the best parts are the ones that are unexpected.

Hanks parking lot shoot-out, Gus's two-face moment, the whole cartel VIP getting whacked in one fell swoop, stumpy dragging himself across the floor... Bleeding all over the place. Omg, blowing up tucos office, idk, there are so many good ones!!

I was sitting so far on the edge of the couch that I was practically sitting on the floor. The best part of that scene is that Gus doesn't say a word until he leaves. Such a great performance. It's a shame both he and Aaron Paul are nominated this year, only one can win:(

One hell of a shot, the long one looking out over the river where Mike died. Wow.
 
2012-08-27 12:55:23 AM
Mike was a really great character but I didn't feel much of any emotion in myself when he died

(Six Feet Under) When Nate Fishers wife Lisa died, and he was burrying her and yelling and screaming.. I couldn't stop sobbing for hours. Not for her though, she annoyed me. But for him.

(Smallville) The episode after Johnathan Kent died, watching Clark lose it and cry in Marthas arms
With Johnathan Kent in the backround on a home video tape saying goodbye.. I cried for hours

I haven't felt that kind of emotion in me during any of Breaking Bad so far
Maybe it's not that kind of show

I can't believe none of the press is reporting on the feud between Vince Gilligan and Cranston.

Cranston is always grumbling about Gilligan being in charge of distribution only. Smart players are trying to distance themselves as this ego has its rampage.

When hank comes to serve the warrants, Walt kills himself because of his pride (won't let anyone else take him down), skyler will go to jail, and hank and Marie will be left.

What I don't get is that he wasn't in a public area with the cash, and they never showed them getting a warrant for the bank. What bank on earth is going to let the cops just walk in on someone in the safe deposit vault?

Yeah. I know you shouldn't walk around with that much cash, but you'd think a crooked lawyer would be able to cook up some excuse or have one prepared. Especially when he is caught in the one of the few places where it is acceptable to be carrying around large sums of cash.

It's a reference to the Pine Barrens episode of the Sopranos. Chris and Paulie shoot a guy and he ends up disappearing. The apartment thing comes from some confusion over the guys former employment.

I think the spinoff idea is still just an idea. There's no confirmation of anything. When I've seen it talked about, the wording was very clear that "sure, if this person survives the series, a spinoff could be a fun idea". That's about it. I wouldn't worry about it leading to any spoilers at this point.

He'd farking have to be. Todd strikes me as a particularly simple man. The type of man that has to remind himself to breathe. If you were to place a light tight burlap sack over Todd's head, there would be no struggle or panic. He would assume it was night out and his mind would start to shut down and he'd fall asleep.

Walt's goose is cooked. Did no-one else not see the camera angle when Gomie arrives at Hank's office to tell him about Mike's warrant--right after Walt removed the bugs. It was from up in the corner of the room, where a cam might be. Walt's on tape removing the bugs and Hank looking at the tape will be next week's climax.

I wouldn't be surprised if Todd is writing down the Meth recipe and then is going to try and sell it to the Phoenix crew. With Jesse, Walt had loyalty I can't see Todd be loyal to anyone, and with Mike out the the picture, there's no one to keep him in line..

It was from up in the corner of the room, where a cam might be. Walt's on tape removing the bugs and Hank looking at the tape will be next week's climax.


Yeah, I noticed that, too. It's the exact angle you'd expect from a security camera.

-Was Walt thinking clearly enough to wipe his prints off of Mike's tan "get out of town" bag or take it with him? His prints may be on record from his previous arrest...

- Is little Kaylee's trust now in the hands of the DEA? It would suck if they seized that. That's all Mike was really in it for. Maybe Jesse will do right by her assuming Walt doesn't fark his life up as well.

I don't usually comment in these threads, though I do read every comment every monday because I love the analysis. Well, most of the time.

Nobody's mentioned it yet, but, what happens next? Does Walter turn Mike into soup like all the others and bury the barrel of Mike soup in the desert? What about Mike's car? If Walter doesn't turn Mike into Mike soup, does he make Mike's death look like a suicide? The motive is there, but what about the forensics? It'll be obvious Mike was shot through the car window, and from a distance. No way that wound was self-inflicted. He'd have to enlist Todd to assist in disposal, at least of Mike. Can't just saws-all a car and put that in a barrel and make car soup, can you?

Confabulat: I can't believe none of you are wondering what the hell Hank was seeing in those photos while his boss was trying to get his attention. I freeze framed them but couldn't see anything notable, but I am not a master detective like Hank.


THIS!

I honestly couldn't figure it out. The only theory I came up with, and this is a total shot in the dark, is that Hank was doing a double take on Mike slight resemblance to Walt. But again, that's a theory smothered in weak sauce, since I couldn't see anything that jumped up and grabbed me about the pics.

I thought that the last one he looked at was Mike sitting at the table in the diner (from the first or second episode this season). There is a woman standing in the picture, with her back to the camera, presumably walking towards the table. I think that the woman is Lydia, the attorney for Madrigal. (This was the meeting where she freaked out and told Mike he needed to kill his crew). My guess is that Hank eventually figures this out and then leans on Lydia for information. Given her disposition, she likely will spill the beans on her involvement in providing methylamine to Walter & Jesse.

I think Walt will lapse back into simple Walt for a brief moment. Realizing what he's done, and forget to properly dispose of Mike. Then there will be a news story on someone finding Mike's body. Jess will know it was Walt, and we'll end the 1st half with Jesse going after Skyler as payback, and Hank finding out it was Walt all along.

I had put my money on Jesse dying at the end of the 1st half, but with Mike killed by Walt's hand, I see Jesse and Walt being the penultimate conflict going into what the 1 year flash forward is all about.

Mike made the piss-poor decision of having Walt get his travel bag instead of Jesse. Why would Mike trust Walt for anything at that point, when the only chemistry Walt is good at is turning everything into shiat.

Mike made a biggie-sized mistake and got what he deserved

I don't think he was looking at anything specific. I think he was just lost in thought, thinking "why can't I get anything on this guy?" instead of listening to his boss, which led to his boss chewing him out for his costly obsession with Mike.

Maybe he'll take Mike and his car to the guy that crushes cars (the guy Walt and co. bought the magnet from).

My guess: His left- or right-handedness (I can't really tell from the photos but I'm no master detective) which may come into play if Walt tries to play this off as a suicide next week.

I think it was obvious that he didn't have a choice. Mike really wanted Saul to do it, so as not to involve Jesse, but Walt knew that Jesse would keep insisting that he bring the bag. Walt couldn't allow that since it was already obvious from the earlier scene that Jesse and Mike were bonding to the point where Walt didn't fully think he could trust him. I think Mike realized from listening to the conversation was that he could either take a chance on Walt bringing the bag, or there wouldn't be anybody bringing it.

After the last looks between Skylar and Jesse at the car wash showed, I think it's dawned on both of them that they are two sides of the same coin; Walt's hostages. If anything, Jesse will help Skylar kill Walt or give her the means/info to disappear herself and her kids.

The second time I watched last night's episode, the more it looks like this whole damn show has been a big, crazy complicated love story between two men, Walt and Jesse. The reason Walt flips out and kills Mike is b/c Jesse respected and liked Mike more than Walt. You could see the lover's jealousy in those eyes looking out when Jesse shakes Mike's hand for the last time. The knowing glances between Skylar and Jesse, realizing they are in the same position. Hell, Walt seemed to get more pissed off when Gus tried to butter up Jesse than when Ted Beneke slept w/ his farking wife. He killed Gus, didn't kill Ted. The last real emotion Walt has shown to another character was when he accidentally called his son Jesse; those were real tears, not the crap Walt usually throws around Hank or Skylar. I'm betting some liberal arts professor who specializes in homosexual/relationship themes is writing a real doozy.

I can't see Walt trying to play it as a suicide. Who kills themselves with a gut-wound? Also, if it became known that Mike died (which Saul would definitely hear about), there's no way Jesse and Saul wouldn't be able to piece that together.

Walt needs to make Mike disappear. Burying him in the desert is probably good enough for now. The problem is getting rid of the car.

Yeah I know, implausible. I was just trying to think of anything that connects those three photos. All three of them have Mike holding something in one hand, that's all I can tell that they have in common.

Ha, it's probably just a throw-away scene but it's always fun to speculate on little minutae. Only one more episode this year, may as well get a bit obsessive.

The Walt / Jesse relationship is more father / son than anything. Walt Jr. is damaged in Walt's eyes. He loves him, but he is never going to be the man that Walt wanted to carry on his legacy. Jesse is the son that Walt believes he should have had. That is what hurts him so much about seeing him respecting Mike, and why he refuses to let Jesse go.

As to hiding / disposing the body. Don't think Walt has to do either. Hank knows that some elements of the old Fring crew are still in business. He'll write it up to a drug hit because they were getting close too Mike, and in the words of Saul, anybody can be flipped. Walt's real issue is going to be with Jesse, because he will know, or Walt will tell him himself as a way to reassert his status as top dog.

Also, Todd. He's up to something and no way is as dumb as he is playing it.

Taking care of Mike's body would be more of an issue for Jesse and Saul than the DEA. If Mike is dead or on the run, the DEA would still be certain that there's more left of Fring's crew, and it wouldn't change their investigation all that much. However, if he turns up dead, Saul would find out (and tell Jesse). It would be obvious to both of them that Walt killed him. I don't think Walt can afford to have both Saul and Jesse turn on him. If he hides the body, then everybody just assumes things went as planned and Mike is in hiding.

That's not why Walt killed Mike.

Am I even watching the same show as some of you people? I gotta be honest, I get a kick out of reading some of these theories, and agree it's fun to speculate, but holy cow some of you are out there. I'm just going to throw this out there: Walter White didn't buy a giagntic machine gun one year from now for an epic showdown with his wife and/or protege, yo.

All I can offer you is this: Whatever you're thinking? It's probably wrong. That's what's so great about this show, it's really hard to predict most things that happen. It wasn't just last week that half the people on here were predicting some sort of Epic showdown where Mike takes out walt to end the season or series.

But what happened? Everything and nothing instead. Mike didn't go out with a proverbial "bang," he went out with a wimper. There was no great reckoning, there was no epic showdown, no one got their come-uppance. Big, Bad Mike died a lonely old man staring at a river, having been shot by a former Chemistry teacher turned wannabe drug kingpin for little more than insulting his pride. How many of your called that for the penultimate episode of the second to last "season?" Not many, I bet.

I think it was just to illustrate the difference between the kind of cop who he is (which his obsessiveness was an asset), versus the role he has now as A.S.A.C. where it is a major liability. He's not a Cop anymore, he's a politician.

A lot of Walt's plan depends on Jesse. When Jesse doesn't follow Walt's plans, things get a little hectic for Walt. Walt has sought to not only control Jesse, but to prevent other people from influencing him as well. The motivation for this has changed over the course of the show. At first from some kind of admiration, and then from self preservation, and then from necessity. Kind of like Lord Krishna counsels Arjuna as a teacher, and a friend, and a master; Breaking Bad is the Bhagavad-Gita of the meth business.

I kind of thought he would see Mike with the laptop, and then notice no laptop in the inventory of his apartment... and then piece together the counter-surveillance thing. However, Walt took care of the bug issue pretty easily... almost too easy as it were.

I'm split now on whether the flash-forward from the beginning of this season is from the end of the series or will be skipped to after the cliffhanger next week. Now that Mike is gone and Jesse is (for all intents and purposes) out of the meth business, Walt really doesn't have that many people left. All it would take would be Hank discovering Walt removing the bugs (there's a shot from the POV of what could be a security camera in Hank's office while Walt is removing the listening devices) and the death of either Skyler or Walt Jr. to send Walt into hiding, and that could easily in the span of a single episode.

Maybe they represent the loose ends left to clear up? I think there's 7 of Mike's guys left (accounting for the two that were already killed), plus Lydia.

Just a random guess based on the number of people there. You could also argue that the two pigs represent Hank and Gomez as DEA agents, with the rest of the group representing the body count through the rest of the series, or something.

elvisaintdead: Douche. For using "penultimate," if nothing else.


Sorry, I didn't know it was a douche word. I listen to a lot of podcasts, and read TV recaps for the shows I really like. The notion of the "Penultimate Episode" to a season is a common theme of one where someone dies, usually someone unsuspected and Important. It's most notable use was probably in every season of "The Wire," A.K.A the "Pelecanos Episode," named after the guy who usually wrote them.

We've now entered the "burning the furniture" phase of BB where all major characters are in play. I wouldn't put it past Gilligan to kill off Walt well before the series finale. Heisenberg is like the dread pirate Roberts -- a bogeyman to keep rivals in check. There's no reason Jesse can't become Heisenberg.

My theory? Through an incredible series of events Marie becomes the new Heisenberg and the blue meth starts coming out purple.

I dunno,I mean if you have children the logical thing IMO would be to let the parents know where to pick up the child.It would be less drama for the child to have the parents pick her up in a park as opposed to being picked up in a police station.

This just how I feel.I don't know if have children and it's not my business to know.

That is the way I see the situation.If it was my daughter or grand daughter then I would feel like I should call someone.

I think it's a father son thing. Walt wants a Michael to carry on his legacy, but Walt Jr is Fredo.
Jesse was abandonded by his father and always appreciates every little compliment Walt gives him. Like tonight when Walt told the Phoenix guys he and Jesse were the best meth cooks in America. Jesse had to thank him. Walt didn't want Jesse bonding with Mike for the simple reason he didn't want to lose his son. I think soon Walt will tell Skylar he wishes he had a son like Jesse, to help him, and that will push Skylar over the edge. She'll threaten to go to Hank to prevent Walt from destroying Walt Jr's life by pulling him into the business and Walt will kill her, making it look like suicide.

But what do I know. I also think Walt's return with the big time weapon is to break Jesse out of jail. Walt is arrogant enough to believe he could do it. He'll die in the process and the last shot will be a well disguised Jesse, sometime in the future, putting flowers on Walt's grave. Blue ones

/OOOOOH NOOOOOOO


Thanks for the pic guys. I was hoping the characters would be a bit more obvious -- maybe a line-up of the ones that die, but I guess that would have been giving away too much.

Mr. Bill in back reminds me of Gale. I hope it's not the ones who die since the second from right in front looks like baby Hope.

When it all comes down to it, Walt's life changed when he sold his share of Grey Matter.
He becomes more bitter each week he looks at the stock market and sees it become more expensive.

I can see him launching rockets at headquarters, or shooting guards with guns to get in to the boardroom and killing all the major shareholders including his 2 old friends.

ontariolightning: The Homer Tax: Trocadero: The reason Walt flips out and kills Mike is b/c Jesse respected and liked Mike more than Walt.

That's not why Walt killed Mike.

Am I even watching the same show as some of you people? I gotta be honest, I get a kick out of reading some of these theories, and agree it's fun to speculate, but holy cow some of you are out there. I'm just going to throw this out there: Walter White didn't buy a giagntic machine gun one year from now for an epic showdown with his wife and/or protege, yo.

All I can offer you is this: Whatever you're thinking? It's probably wrong. That's what's so great about this show, it's really hard to predict most things that happen. It wasn't just last week that half the people on here were predicting some sort of Epic showdown where Mike takes out walt to end the season or series.

But what happened? Everything and nothing instead. Mike didn't go out with a proverbial "bang," he went out with a wimper. There was no great reckoning, there was no epic showdown, no one got their come-uppance. Big, Bad Mike died a lonely old man staring at a river, having been shot by a former Chemistry teacher turned wannabe drug kingpin for little more than insulting his pride. How many of your called that for the penultimate episode of the second to last "season?" Not many, I bet.

Now, Say my name.

He's going to blow up Grey Matter headquarters


With a machine gun? He'd better hope there's lots of strategically placed barrels for him to shoot.

Walt's destiny is to become a psycho that CNN analysts analyzes for days after he's committed an atrocity and killed dozens of people, and then after a week, most of the nation will forget about him and then they'll move on to the next psychopath that commits an atrocity.

Nah, I think it would be more about trying to "get the girl." Didn't he have a big-time crush on one of the guy's wives? That's why he sold his share in the first place, because of that conflict.

Oh yeah, Todd is a red strobe light with a foghorn attached. There's nothing about that character that isn't trouble. I can very easily imagine him taking Walt's recipe now that he has it, trying to off (or muscle out) Walt and take over as cook, especially considering the Vamonos company is already doing 90% of the labor, Walt's just cooking and has no friends/muscle of his own.

Yup, that was about Walt's stupid inferiority complex/ego. Mike reminds him of what a schmuck he is under the Heisenberg shell. My already considerable respect for Bryan Cranston grew bounds when he basically transforms from Heisenberg back into pre-Meth Kingpin Walt (hell, into Hal from Malcolm in the Middle) in the moment when he realises what he's done.

Mike's mistake here was that he *knew* Walt was a time bomb but didn't see the specifics of how dangerous that made him to him personally. Mike who can see a trap set by rational enemies a mile away somehow didn't see that poking Walt's fragile little ego would lead to a moment of shear stupidity that would end him.

Walt's farked now (well, more farked). Most of the contacts he has were Mike's people. If he thought that having the Phoenix crew meant it was safe to dispose of Mike, he's about to prove himself very wrong. (If he thought at all. There's premeditation in what he did - he stole the gun - but a second's rational thought would have told him killing Mike was a BAD idea) Not to Mention that Jessie's already started to figure out Walt's number, just not the extent yet. It's only a matter of time before he figures out just what Walt's done to him. Maybe not Jane (how could he ever know Walt was there) but possibly Brock. And while Walt will probably try to make it look like Mike managed to disappear without a trace, I don't see him being able to do that without involving someone else. Maybe Saul (risky, since Mike was Saul's guy. Saul's scared of Walt, but if he sees a way to get rid of him, he will.) I don't see it holding up for long.

It was from up in the corner of the room, where a cam might be. Walt's on tape removing the bugs and Hank looking at the tape will be next week's climax.


Why wouldn't Walt already be on tape planting the bug And why wouldn't he notice a camera in the room? It was just an "artsy" camera angle.

He would be on tape, but it's unlikely someone would watch the footage unless something was wrong or they suspected they were being bugged. When they do their routine bug sweep and there is no bug found, no one watches the tape. Business as usual. The data from those tapes is probably re-written over constantly as well.

There's no security camera. Walt wouldn't plant a bug in full view of a security camera. And there's no point in having a security camera if no one watches it.

Well, ok, yeah. Except at one point Mike ostensibly worked for Saul (it was Saul who sent Mike to Jessie's to clean up after Jane's death) while really working for Gus. Maybe it would be more accurate to say Saul was to some extent Mikes's guy. The broader point - Saul will be made very unhappy and skittish by Mike's death. And while he's not really the type to *plot* Walt's death, if he sees an opportunity he'll absolutely take it.

To elaborate - Walt needs to and will try to cover this and has covered up murders before, but not by himself, and not from the very people who helped him dispose of the previous bodies. He'll absolutely try to make it look like Mike skipped town and covered his traces, but I think somewhere along the way he misses something and Jesse and/or Saul figures out that Mike's dead, and they know Walt went out to meet him.

Also, Walt unwisely bragged about Fring's murder in this very episode. I don't think he's stupid enough to brag to Jesse or Saul, but I don't put it past him to reveal it to someone else.

I would think still think Saul would. He knows Mike's lawyer is in custody. He knows Kaylee's trust is probably with the DEA. He knows Kaylee is all Mike really cares about. He has a drawer full of burner phones, one is probably Mike's line to him. Mike had many hiding places and drop spots, I would think that if he were alive, he'd eventually reach out to Saul to make sure his granddaughter is taken care of.

Um no he didn't unless all those safety deposit boxes were in his name and families NOT in his name had access to them (lawyer said they came in to collect the cash). Also, when you place 5 million dollars into a bank account, the IRS quickly takes notice.

Um no he didn't unless all those safety deposit boxes were in his name and families NOT in his name had access to them (lawyer said they came in to collect the cash). Also, when you place 5 million dollars into a bank account, the IRS quickly takes notice.


If he hasd other money for Kaylee, he never would've gone into business with Walt in the first place. Are you even watching the show? Jesus. The DEA took all his money that Gus set up for him. The IRS didn't notice because it was a secret offshore account. The sum total of Mike's earnings were in that duffel bag. He never would've called Saul or Jesse again. That was made crystal clear. The only way anyone finds out Mike is dead is if Walt farks up in the body disposal.

When the magnet made all the evidence move in the first episode it revealed an offshore account number in Fring's picture frame.

That money was taken, that's why Mike decided to change his mind and work with Walt.

Since Mike's lawyer flipped I'm sure he has told the DEA about the safety deposit boxes. Even if he didn't we have to assume that the DEA will have the authority to confiscate the money from the boxes.

There were multiple accounts discovered by the DEA. One was in Kaylee's name. Watch the show, then opine. That's how it works.

Didn't read all the comments but I'll add this.

Walt didn't kill Mike because of the 9 names. Walt is smart enough to have already known he could get the names from Lydia.
Maybe because Mike and Jesse were getting along too well, don't know. As far as letting Mike ride off into the suset or
killing him off, either was no danger to Walt or Jesse. The 9 guys are the problem. Walt just wanted Mike gone.

Notice the way Walt was dressed when he killed Mike? Went back to the chemistry teacher look. I guess to try and make you feel sorry for Walt
for messing up.

Mike was one of my favorite characters and as much as I hated to see him get killed, he was a murderer and a scumbag just like Walt and Jesse
and deserved what he got just like Jesse and Walt deserve the same. The look on Mikes face as his granddaughter was playing between him and the cops crushed me. Like a part of Mike had died because he knew he'd never see her again.
 
2012-08-27 07:13:48 PM

NeoCortex42: Otto_E_Rodika: The Walt / Jesse relationship is more father / son than anything. Walt Jr. is damaged in Walt's eyes. He loves him, but he is never going to be the man that Walt wanted to carry on his legacy. Jesse is the son that Walt believes he should have had. That is what hurts him so much about seeing him respecting Mike, and why he refuses to let Jesse go.

As to hiding / disposing the body. Don't think Walt has to do either. Hank knows that some elements of the old Fring crew are still in business. He'll write it up to a drug hit because they were getting close too Mike, and in the words of Saul, anybody can be flipped. Walt's real issue is going to be with Jesse, because he will know, or Walt will tell him himself as a way to reassert his status as top dog.

Also, Todd. He's up to something and no way is as dumb as he is playing it.

Taking care of Mike's body would be more of an issue for Jesse and Saul than the DEA. If Mike is dead or on the run, the DEA would still be certain that there's more left of Fring's crew, and it wouldn't change their investigation all that much. However, if he turns up dead, Saul would find out (and tell Jesse). It would be obvious to both of them that Walt killed him. I don't think Walt can afford to have both Saul and Jesse turn on him. If he hides the body, then everybody just assumes things went as planned and Mike is in hiding.


MIKE'S BODY is going down the same well as the lap top and guns went.

One more time, because I genuinely suspect that you're just really farking stupid and not a troll; there were multiple accounts discovered by the DEA. One was in Kaylee's name. The DEA took all of Mike's money, forcing Mike to go into business with Walt against his better judgment. In this episode, they took all of his money again, forcing him to go on the run with a duffle bag. Obviously, the lady at the bank told the DEA about all the safety deposit boxes. No one ever expects to hear from Mike again.
 
2012-08-27 07:37:02 PM
I think it's being overlooked on how Jesse would find out about Walt's games and poisoning Brock.

Saul knows. He had his fat goon lift the rison cig off Jesse, and he has to have been involved in poisoning Brock. Once it comes to light Mike is dead, Jesse and Saul will know it's Walt. Saul will then come clean with Jesse, and that will put Jesse over the edge.

The Homer Tax: Trocadero: The reason Walt flips out and kills Mike is b/c Jesse respected and liked Mike more than Walt.

That's not why Walt killed Mike.

Am I even watching the same show as some of you people? I gotta be honest, I get a kick out of reading some of these theories, and agree it's fun to speculate, but holy cow some of you are out there. I'm just going to throw this out there: Walter White didn't buy a giagntic machine gun one year from now for an epic showdown with his wife and/or protege, yo.

All I can offer you is this: Whatever you're thinking? It's probably wrong. That's what's so great about this show, it's really hard to predict most things that happen. It wasn't just last week that half the people on here were predicting some sort of Epic showdown where Mike takes out walt to end the season or series.

But what happened? Everything and nothing instead. Mike didn't go out with a proverbial "bang," he went out with a wimper. There was no great reckoning, there was no epic showdown, no one got their come-uppance. Big, Bad Mike died a lonely old man staring at a river, having been shot by a former Chemistry teacher turned wannabe drug kingpin for little more than insulting his pride. How many of your called that for the penultimate episode of the second to last "season?" Not many, I bet.

Now, Say my name.

That's exactly what they were for.

Now that Mike is dead and the money is gone, the 8 dudes in prison have no reason not to talk. Now Walt has to go after them too.

This is my prediction of how things go down: Walt and Lydia go after the 8 in prison and take a few out. Word gets out that the money dried up and they prison dudes are getting picked off. Todd puts two and two together. Todd and his "prison connections" go after Walt.
That's why Walt is armed to the teeth; because he's now got an entire crime syndicate after him.
Walt goes out in a huge gunfight ala Scareface, and Todd pops him from behind. Walt never sees him coming.

Are you guys dumb?

The idiot lawyer always went to take care of 9 accounts every two weeks or monthly or whatever.
The DEA knows he's the lawyer for the 9 guys.
When idiot lawyer arrives at bank after Mike got his 5 million, he told the fat woman "oh and this time I need 603" as in Kaylee's box.
When Gomie snatched him up, he was just depositing for the 9 guys again.

Gomie/DEA never knew about Kaylee's money. They just took the 9 guys' money.

Also when Saul and the boys are talking afterwards, they never refer to Kaylee's box being taken. They just talk about the 9 guys.

Saul said they confiscated Mike's bankroll and then Walt said the 9 guys will flip.

Kaylee's money wasn't part of the "bankroll" since it was a 1 time payment.

And again, Mike would NOT leave town if it meant Kaylee would be penniless. He'd have struck a deal with the DEA and sent Walt into hell. Kaylee is the only reason he's even dealing with Walt again in the first place.

MagSeven: -Was Walt thinking clearly enough to wipe his prints off of Mike's tan "get out of town" bag or take it with him? His prints may be on record from his previous arrest...

- Is little Kaylee's trust now in the hands of the DEA? It would suck if they seized that. That's all Mike was really in it for. Maybe Jesse will do right by her assuming Walt doesn't fark his life up as well.


I think that box is safe. Remember how explicit lawyer guy was about it being full? He didn't have lady open it the time the cops were there, just the usual ones. They also have no surveillance pictures of person associated with that box. DEA had a cork board with nine people walking in to collect, but nothing about that last box, not even a spot to put the picture when they finally got it.

Not Available: I thought that the last one he looked at was Mike sitting at the table in the diner (from the first or second episode this season). There is a woman standing in the picture, with her back to the camera, presumably walking towards the table. I think that the woman is Lydia, the attorney for Madrigal. (This was the meeting where she freaked out and told Mike he needed to kill his crew). My guess is that Hank eventually figures this out and then leans on Lydia for information. Given her disposition, she likely will spill the beans on her involvement in providing methylamine to Walter & Jesse.


They were sitting at a booth at the diner, not a table.

rocky_howard: eddiesocket: It will almost certainly never be mentioned again. Saul said they confiscated all of Mike's money. Neither the bank lady nor the lawyer have any reason not to tell the DEA about that box.

Saul said they confiscated Mike's bankroll and then Walt said the 9 guys will flip.

Kaylee's money wasn't part of the "bankroll" since it was a 1 time payment.

And again, Mike would NOT leave town if it meant Kaylee would be penniless. He'd have struck a deal with the DEA and sent Walt into hell. Kaylee is the only reason he's even dealing with Walt again in the first place.


What deal could he strike that would persuade the cops to let Kaylee keep drug money? And why again would the lawyer not tell the cops about the box? And how will Kaylee ever learn about the box, come to think of it?
Saying Mike "would never do that" makes no sense. He did it. Certainly, he's got to know that there's at least a very strong possibility Kaylee's money is gone. And yet he still ran.
 
2012-08-27 09:14:53 PM
I've tried to keep up with the thread while working, but has anyone covered how Kaylee will know that she gets the money when she turns 18?

Was the idiot lawyer supposed to inform her on her birthday, or was this one of the things that Mike was still paying Saul for?

Hadn't refreshed before posting, I too want to know the answer to this question.
 
2012-08-27 09:16:50 PM

Confabulat: I thought about that too, but with the music and the way Hank was looking back and forth, like he was piecing something together, and the way the camera focused on those three photos in turn, makes me think he saw something, or we could see something. Might be reading too much into it, but Breaking Bad doesn't usually do things without a purpose.

My guess: His left- or right-handedness (I can't really tell from the photos but I'm no master detective) which may come into play if Walt tries to play this off as a suicide next week.

Shot in the dark.


Mike is getting into the safe car in the first picture, not the car the cops surrounded at the park when he was visiting the kid. Is Hank noticing all these cars, lost in the third picture trying to see what kind of car is out the window?
 
2012-08-27 09:19:09 PM

that bosnian sniper: EddieMoscone: And I said to my wife during Todd's first cooking experience, "That kid is major trouble."

Oh yeah, Todd is a red strobe light with a foghorn attached. There's nothing about that character that isn't trouble. I can very easily imagine him taking Walt's recipe now that he has it, trying to off (or muscle out) Walt and take over as cook, especially considering the Vamonos company is already doing 90% of the labor, Walt's just cooking and has no friends/muscle of his own.


My thought exactly. Todd is the Spider in the Glass Jar, he's helpless if contained, but if you let him out (Teach him how to cook) he will be deadly. Todd will be the knew Kingpin.

angrycrank: There's premeditation in what he did - he stole the gun - but a second's rational thought would have told him killing Mike was a BAD idea


Stealing the gun was to make sure Mike didn't use. Walt left it in the car when he went to talk to Mike, and only went to retrieve it after Mike pwned him. He was outmatched in the hand off.

Also, as a follow up, does Hank know anyone else suddenly getting lots of cars? Where is all the money?

ckevinc: I thought all the safety deposit boxes were for the families of the 9 in jail. I think I remember Mikes lawyer saying
something to the effect that the boxes were empty and that everyone was making their regular pick-ups, meaning the
families of the 9 in jail. Anyone recall how many boxes were unlocked?


All 9. The board at the DEA office when Walt is there lists 9 numbers with 9 photos.

Good question. Also, what money was he paying Saul with if he had every last dime in a seized account (remember he said something along the lines of "I'm paying Saul, he'll bring the Go bag"? Like I was saying, it makes a lot of sense for Mike to have multiple accounts and stashes of cash all around. Like how Walt and Jesse used to stash some of their earnings in Saul's safe. Mike seems too resourceful to put it all in one place or account. Especially if the DEA hit him hard financially once before.

I don't know. 1) Walt wouldn't have thought Mike had any reason to shoot him at that particular time. Yeah, he threatened him a bunch of times before, but he always had a reason. Mike wasn't so much into killing people unless he was paid to or they needed killing. No reason for him to do that when he's fleeing and Walt had just brought him the go bag (well, other than Walt being a crazy motherfarker, of course.)

But more importantly, 2) I don't think Walt would have thought Mike was unarmed (other than the gun in the bag). Since he had a legal concealed carry permit, he could still carry a legally registered gun in spite of the search warrant etc.

Who knows what Walt was thinking. But I think at some level he planned to at least threaten Mike with the gun if not kill him.

I think Walt's plan was to threaten to kill Mike if he didn't give up the 9 names. Or maybe he just wanted the gun. He wasn't holding it originally; he had to go back to his car to get it. It definitely wasn't a planned murder, at any rate.
 
2012-08-27 11:35:59 PM
Just re-watched the episode. Whatever flaws it may have notwithstanding, I've gotta say that the "soundtrack" that plays over the ending credits is... moving. It's like you're listening in on Mike's thoughts as he waits to die.
 
2012-08-28 12:33:14 AM

ontariolightning: Degenz: I bet in the end Jesse will be the one who kills Walter...and probably winds up farking Skyler.

Jesse won't kill Walt
Hank will

Walt will pull on Hank and will go out via a cop shooting
Hank & Marie will take Holly


Walt lives. Everyone around him dies, including Hank.

eddiesocket: MagSeven: eddiesocket: angrycrank: The broader point - Saul will be made very unhappy and skittish by Mike's death

There's no reason for Saul or Jesse to ever know Mike died.

Mike pays Saul. Saul may think Mike may have just left town at first, but I'm sure he'd expect him to call to check up on personal affairs (particularly matters that relate to Kaylee that the other lawyer dropped the ball on).

Mike was leaving town for good. That's why he wanted the bag with the money and passport. Neither Jesse nor Saul ever expected to hear from Mike again.

angrycrank: I don't think Walt can effectively cover it up.

Todd and a barrel ought to do the trick.


And the car? It has a shot-out window, so can't just be abandoned. The scrapyard people knew Mike and probably his car too. And Todd? Todd is either a complete moron or has his own agenda (or maybe both). Walt would be a fool to rely on him to help cover up Mike's murder. Trust him, and he lets it slip accidentally or on purpose sooner or later.
 
2012-08-28 01:54:48 AM
Last episode Mike and Jesse advised Walt to not park at the Vamanos Pest building, yet right after they talk to the PHX guys they pull up in Mike's car.

Did I miss something?

The whole point of the scene is that Mike is willing to leave her. If he stays, he knows his goose is cooked. If he runs, he still has a chance to help her in the future. What a genius actor like Jonathan Banks gives you in that scene is amazing. Mike knows this is the last time he will see his granddaughter. He wants to say goodbye but can't. He is a criminal first, and self-preservation becomes his primary goal, though you can see it tears him up to do so. I don't think Mike is thinking about the money at that point. He is only thinking about what he is going to lose. His granddaughter if he runs. His freedom if he stays. Mike makes his choice. You can see the rage in him later when he is talking with Walt. He's as pissed about having to leave his granddaughter behind (his life that he says was good under Fring) than about losing the money.

I'm reminded of DeNiro's line in Heat when he said you cannot get attached to anything you are not willing to walk away from in 30 seconds flat. That's Mike.
 
2012-08-28 04:17:09 AM
It's possible that Kaylee's drug money trust fund is still intact. Her drop was one time only so the lawyer wasn't caught putting cash into box 603. The lawyer is already giving up the 9 guys' accounts and Mike so it's not like he needs to volunteer info about Kaylee's money. The bank lady might have given up all the box numbers, but she might have also given up just the regular numbers.

The way it's cut, it's not clear whether Walt went to retrieve the gun or was carrying it all along (I thought the latter when I watched, basically because I was sure Walt was going to kill Mike from the time he opened the bag and saw the gun. So when I was watching the scene, Walt's body language suggested "guy who doesn't usually carry a gun carrying a gun." And I kept thinking "Now. He pulls out the gun now". And then Mike walks away, and Walt does, and I sigh with relief, and then...goddammit.) So the way I saw it, he turned toward his car to leave, then changed his mind and walked back to Mike's car. But the interpretation that the gun was in the car is equally plausible.

That's one of the great things about the show. Vince Gilligan himself has he doesn't know if Walt planned to shoot Mike or not. I definitely don't think he consciously planned it. But bringing a gun - Mike's gun - to an encounter with him? I DO think on some level he knew he could kill Mike at that meeting. Even if he just thought he might threaten Mike with the gun - Mike's not the kind of guy you point a gun at unless you mean it.

Yeah, maybe. They did make a point of saying that box was full after the previous drop, so the lawyer probably was not making a deposit into that specific box on the trip when he was caught. With probable cause, though, they could get a warrant to search bank records and find Mike's connection to box 603. It's possible they don't do that, though, because they think the 9 boxes they got the lawyer depositing to are it, and Kaylee's fund gets missed.

Why do you think Hank asked Walt jr if he wanted to watch Heat a couple of episodes ago?

Vince Gilligan is a genius at foreshadowing. Which combined with the Scarface scene in the first episode + Walt carrying an M60 (not unlike Tony Montana) in the flashforward, makes me think he's really going to do a massive shootout at the end.
 
2012-08-28 08:41:44 AM
Stupid TiVoing and not being able to participate in the thread live. Still, interesting points made, and it's fun to read the wild guessing.

Doubt anyone's still around, but...

Crudbucket: I think we can pretty much confirm that Gomez is secretly a DEA agent.


If you meant FBI or Internal Affairs, I think you might be on to something. Especially with the throw-away (?) mention of the FBI in the budget conference call.

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.

The interesting thing to me is -- who and when? If there's security in Hank's office, does Gomez know? Is there a set-up in place trying to find out if Hank is dirty, as someone already has an idea who Heisenberg is and that Hank is related to Heisenberg? Or does Hank know Walt is Heisenberg, and is trying to cover up or complete a case? The "oh, sure, I'll go get coffee" the *second* time was definitely "yup, but I was waiting until you asked," unlike the first time, where he seemed genuinely awkward, sympathetic and wanting to get the hell out of there.

I think Gomez could be working on Hank, or Hank could be working on Walt, or some combination. We'll see.

Also torn between Hank studying the pictures and noticing Walt's resemblance to Mike (something they've clearly been stepping up intentionally, while Mike doesn't age much at all), and recognizing Lydia -- did they already know Mike and Lydia knew each other, or did he just notice that (or just be on the verge of noticing)?

And as for Todd.... Yes, this is definitely trouble, and a *terrible* mistake on Walt's part, but one in a series of bad decisions. Walt thinks he's holding Todd as the spider in the jar, but once again, he is wrong -- just as he was with Jesse, Gus and Mike. Todd is holding the jar. Lots of signs point to him being filled with potential, not dumb as he looks.

Mike's death was wonderful -- really didn't think he'd be out before the end, but he's made a series of bigger and bigger oversights / bad decisions, and had clearly lost a step. An accidental, casual, impulsive death at the hand of perhaps his least clueful threat. And even then, at least he got to die with some dignity. "Shut the FARK up." Perfect. Added bonus: It's another lovely little instance of Walt thinking he'd solved a problem and been helpful ("call Mike, tell him to run!") having horrible unforeseen results ("ooops, Mike's dead").

The only thing that disappoints me is that (a) the "meth lab in various yuppie houses" and (b) "Walt decides to train Todd" are both such terrible ideas that they seem out of character, to the point of threatening my willful suspension of disbelief. I don't get either of those ideas, and don't think Walt, Jesse or Mike would make them -- even though they're stressed, desperate and leaderless. Don't get it.

And, yeah, I would -love- to see Marie wind up somehow in charge, just for the visual of the cutover to purple meth, but as much as I want to, I don't think I see it happening... even in some kind of "I get to keep the baby, and everyone else in my life is dead; ok Walt, I guess I have no choice but to help you cook" way. But the purple meth would be fun!

But, bottom line, I am pretty sure that (and hope that) whatever happens is completely and utterly unpredicted by any of us. The only ending I kinda hope they avoid is a, "yup, the more things change, the more they stay the same... just another day in the meth business -- now it's just Todd in the goofy hat, carry on" non-resolution. Probably the most honest one (various people dead, Walt's formula continues on unrelenting), but I'm hoping for more than that.

But I really had to reply because of these gems:

FinFangFark: I see Jesse and Walt being the penultimate conflict going into what the 1 year flash forward is all about.


Interesting. So Walt v. Hank, say, as the final conflict? Or do you think Hank will already be out of the way, and Todd v. Walt? Or Walt's out, too, so Todd v. Saul? Hmmmmm.

The Homer Tax: The notion of the "Penultimate Episode" to a season is a common theme of one where someone dies, usually someone unsuspected and Important.


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 actually specifically mocking the ridiculous and unfounded speculations that there's something more to Gomez than just being Gomez. Kinda like the one you just launched into. I don't know what show you're watching. And the only reason they showed Hank looking at surveillance photos during a briefing meeting was to illustrate his 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. 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.

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.

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.

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.
 
2012-08-28 12:25:56 PM

SFSailor:

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?


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.
 
2012-08-28 12:30:53 PM

SFSailor: 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?


There's zero evidence to suggest Gomie is a plant. People just want it to happen because it would be cool.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
