    Pretty cagey. I didn't expect Walt to full on implicate Hank. It's a stop-gap measure for sure, but still.

    Another great episode. The train keeps rollin' full steam.

    Marie was wearing black, lots of other people were wearing purple.

    Aaron Paul killed it in this episode. I've been waiting for Jesse to turn on Walt for like three seasons now. I hope he follows through with torching the house.

    Yeah!


    Walt's "confession" was awesome. Pin it on Hank!! Yeah, that's the ticket. he took the money for his medical bills. And Marie knew about it. DOH! :D



    I don't quite get why Jesse all of the sudden realized the ricin cigarette. Did they lift it JUST NOW, right before he was about to go away? We've seen him check to make sure it's there before and freak out when he doesn't find the pack of cigs right away.

    We have seen the house in the future. It's not torched.

    What's the deal with the Ricin cigarette? Didn't that end up in Walters wall outlet a while back? Did jesse have it on him?

    Jesse had dope in his pocket. Then it was missing. He realized Huell lifted his dope. Jesse then looked at his cigarettes, remembered the last time something from his pocket went missing and remembered that Huell had patted him down. He put two and two together and realized Huell had lifted the ricin cigarette back at the end of season 4. And the only way Huell would know to do that is if Walt told him to.

    Was the scene where Hank, Marie, Walt, and Skylar were sitting at the restaurant similar to one earlier in the series? (The location, I mean, not the substance of their discussion). I had major déjà vu watching it.

    Great episode. Edge-of-seat stuff, for me.

    I love seeing the characters piece things together: Hank and the insurance money. Jesse and the ricin cigarette.

    I thought they put it back. or at least, a dummy/decoy.

    Here's the history of the ricin cigarette, from the Breaking Bad Wikia (which will likely be updated again momentarily to reflect what happened tonight).

    No, Walt "found" it in the roomba after Jesse "lost" it.

    Can someone explain the diner scene to me. Did the blond kid/cook blame the killing of the desert boy on someone else? Did those two guys look like under cover cops or what?

    Solid episode. I miss the free wheelin Jessie of old though and only Sol for light relief Badger etc. MIA.

    There was some pretty blatant and unsubtle foreshadowing in that opening scene. Not completely sure what the point of that was outside of directly coming back later.

    They were part of his gang, they just came from killing everyone last week, hence the blood on the shoes.

    So the killing of the cooks at the buried bus last week was the small change in management. What did they say about the dirt bike kid at the train heist? I still feel like I am missing something.

    I'm still a little confused


    Jesse got what he thought was the original ricin cig out of the roomba. Didn't he put it back in the pack? There is mention of other ricin, but there was more ricin than the single cigarette.

    So, did jesse never really ever put the Roomba one back in the pack? Did he put it back in the pack, but then figure it all out just now, shortly before getting picked up, even with the cigarette in the pack? They never showed the cigarette tonight. To me, that suggests it was NOT in the pack. Am I really wrong in thinking it made it back into the back after he got it out of the Roomba? I know the summary above doesn't say he put it back, but that doesn't mean it didn't happen. Maybe the summary jsut didn't include that detail.

    I don't think Todd ("Landry") mentioned the kid on the dirt bike at all. I was WAITING for him to say something, but unless I seriously am brainfarting here, I don't think he ever did.

    After they found the (fake) Ricin (Walt planted) in the roomba, they flushed it.

    Jesse has not had a ricin cigarette or had the ricin since he lost it/it was stolen on season 4.
