The episode was not confusing.

It wasn't confusing at all if you watched the damn show instead of yapping online during the whole thing, idiots. It was really pretty clever.

I can honestly predict someone will blame the writers of Breaking Bad for not spelling it out clearly enough for them. I can pretty much guarantee that's your standard TV viewer. "Wait, what? I have to infer things from previous seasons? That's not how I do TV buddy! EXPLAIN MOAR!"

This. I tried the whole Interactive thing too and fark that. Even though it only says something every 5 minutes or so, it's still too distracting.

The writers on Big Bang Theory know what they're doing. You don't even need to see the episodes in order and they're just as entertaining. These hacks at AMC could learn something.

Wait... Walt is Heisenberg?

I gotta start paying closer attention to the details.
 
2013-08-27 03:14:56 PM  
It's the Dexterization of TV, in which every incident that requires even the tiniest bit of inference or thought must be broken down and fed back to the audience in bite-sized crumbs. Then repeated as a preview at the beginning of every new episode so that nobody forgets.

Bullshiat! I always get confused because I don't know which one Penny is farking at the time.

/I always think it's hilarious when Jesse goes up to Penny's door and yells "Yo, biatch, open up!" three times in a row.
 
2013-08-27 03:17:54 PM  
Never mind Jesse - between the ricin cig and now the weed, Huell's a pretty badass pickpocketer.  If I ever end up squeezing past him in a doorway, I'm totally checking my pockets.

If you're like the average Farker, there's no way you and Huell are going to be in the same doorway at the same time.
 
2013-08-27 03:23:04 PM  
I was confused by one thing - since Walt has cancer and is undergoing chemo, how does he have big enough balls to film that confession and send it to Hank?
 
2013-08-27 03:29:50 PM  
All the .gifs I've found are far too big, so this will have to do:

Here's how TV viewing works for a lot of modern internet people (Farkers included):

"OMG that was a great scene!"

"This Skittles commercial is so played out."

"What do you think Walt Jr. will have for breakfast next?"

"He will have a Skittle pancake! haha omg what just happened? I so wasn't paying attention!"

"Dude."

Yeah, I bailed on the thread the last half hour. You can't really comment like on "Walking Dead" or "Mad Men".

I got it immediately and now I feel superior and smart and full of self-esteem.

I'm confused by my feelings for Anderson Cooper, too.

Or is that not what you meant?

I enjoy those threads by not reading them during the show (I mean, seriously, why are people reading their computer while watching a dramatic production?  Are these the same people that are texting in movie theaters?).  Then I go back after the episode is over and read the reactions and look for funny .gifs.

2013-08-27 03:43:23 PM  
There was nothing confusing about it. Walt lied and said Gus poisoned Brock, Jessie believed it because he had no idea how Walt would have lifted the ricin out of his pocket without him noticing.

Huell takes Jessie's weed without Jessie realizing it until he's waiting for the vacuum cleaner repair man to show up. The realization that Huell is a great pickpocket, and the last time he saw the ricin cigarette was around a time he was in Saul's office constantly = Jessie going HOLY CRAP HUELL JACKED MY SMOKE FOR WALT!

I don't understand the confusion.

Only thing I'm confused about is why we're seeing Seasons 1 and 2 scardy cat Walt and not 3 and 4 evil Walt. Its like the writers flipped a switch and he's back to self-doubt and half-baked lies.

Same here. I usually like to check in on the threads and speculate before the show, and sometimes I'll even refresh during like the 30 minute commercial break, but I don't get how anyone sits and comments on Breaking Bad online without missing half the damn show. Everything is too intricate for that, but hey, why don't you exclaim more cause Marie is wearing purple instead of watching the damn show.

Did you not watch his confession? There's no scaredy cat Walt.
 
2013-08-27 03:45:04 PM  
It really is not that confusing.  Hank was smoking the ricin cig at his house while Marie was shoplifting the clothing that Walt lent to Todd and Jesse that he got back in time to buy the M60.... it aint that hard.

Didn't the doctors tell Jesse that Brock was poisoned by castor beans and not ricin?

Simple. Walt is not used to someone hunting him, only the other way around. Knowing that Hank knows, Jessie is becoming a wild card, and things are slowly falling apart = Walt in panic mode. He's still a methodical evil genius though, as evident from the confession video.

Well they do resemble tombstones which could signify Jesse's impending demise (which didn't happen cause he figured out too much at the worst possible time). Jesse Pinkman had a chance at a happy ever after in front of those stones, but he did not get it. That's it for him. No Alaska for our boy.

They might resemble tombstones and might have significance for that reason, but what are they in real life?  I want to know what they actually are, nit what they might symbolize.

It's because he's not cooking anymore.  He's not in charge anymore.  Walt is only unstoppable when he's Heisenberg, but he retired.  Now he's back to being normal, (mostly) law abiding Walter White.  The times he comes out and asserts control?  That's Heisenberg trying to reappear, e.g. the confession video.

Jesse's realization was no different than Hank's. Neither of them have all the pieces of the puzzle but both suddenly realized who Mr. White really was instinctively and truthfully.

I sometimes imagine Michael C. Hall sitting there as he's doing voiceovers for scenes suddenly throwing his script into the air and shouting "I CAN'T TAKE THIS ANYMORE! THIS IS TOO STUPID!" and then the producers waving his paycheque at him until he sits down grumbling.

I did.  If you remember, Jesse originally accused Walt of having Huell steal the Ricin cigarette from him, but Walt dismissed that as crazy because A) he has no reason to steal the cigarette, and B) how could Huell be that good of a pickpocket.

Turns out, Huell IS that good of a pickpocket, and now Jesse has confirmation that it was done on Walt's orders.  That means Walt knew from the start that Gus had nothing to do with the kid's poisoning, and was manipulating Jesse the entire time.  That's a HELL of a realization to make: that the guy you considered a friend blatantly manipulated you and lied to your face about it.

That is a terrible way to watch anything other than terrible TV. If you're spending your time on a Fark thread talking about a show? You suck at watching a show. I bet you needed the ricin explained too, or did all the Farkers clear that up for you so you didn't have to think about it much?

I do know that, compadre. But Brock being poisoned by lily of the valley (just looked it up, it wasn't castor beans) and not ricin means that the logical leap to "Walt did it" has like three more steps. Maybe he was all amped up and overly suspicious of everything that Walt did, but even given that, it's a stretch. Hell, his ricin cigarette was in the pack. Huell's a good pickpocket, but to be able to lift a single cigarette (out of a pile of identical ones) seems super improbable

See, this is the sort of scene that Farkers are too busy yapping during to actually notice, then they get all annoyed cause they don't understand what's going on. Dumbasses.

Again, it's just like Hank with the Walt Whitman book. Everything fell in place with Jesse. I'm guessing it hasn't with you yet.
