    I thought it was just a typo. He was one of the few (or only) not hurt.

    Meant NOT hurt.
    You are right about the GPS but if a little investigation (buying from Skymall) may prove to be in Walt's favor. Again all suppositions.

    ...and someone else pointed out in a prior thread, there is a similarity (physical) between Walt and Hank. Add facial hair and some sunglasses........

    As seen in the Funny Or Die video. I thought he did a passable Vince Gilligan, too.

    Yes, there are so many things that could point right to Hank in all this. Walt knew that. Hank knows it too. He knows he's been bested. Cannot wait to see how this plays out now.

    Hank does not tell superiors, I'd bet my methylamine.

    I can see Marie dropping an anonymous tip (without Hank's knowledge) on Walt.

    But that would just accomplish exactly what she is afraid of--- that the DEA finds out before Hank goes in and tells it all. Hank would be toast.

    Marie is fixated on getting custody of Walt's kids. I'm not sure that she can see the big picture with Hank.

    I was searching pics and found a couple of him with longish hair. Interesting. I also watching a movie called Last House on the Left and he was a bad dude in that. Ironically he got his face beat up in that movie and looked more like Jesse then.

    I had just seen him as the smarmy Mormon guy in Big Love when I watched him in the Breaking Bad pilot, and my first reaction was "This guy? C'mon." But he won me over pretty quickly. The different roles just proves what a great actor he is.

    My rewatch is all Slaughterhouse Five style - I'm watching a few scenes here and there out of order.

    Just saw the desert scene again.

    1) Didn't notice Saul'a license plate before.. LWYRUP. :)

    2) While I agree with Jessee that Walt was obviously acting in Walt's best interest at the beginning of that conversation, I gotta disagree with whoever said that they thought a look of Walt's indicated that he was considering snapping Jesse's neck. Absolutely no way. Rewatch the scene.

    Yeah, and I think we've seen that before if I'm not mistaken...

    And I agree with this...when the hug first began, I wondered, but as it continued to unfold, it was VERY apparent that was NOT the case.

    Yes. On the other hand, there's not much doubt in my mind that there was not an ounce of sincerity on Walt's part...he was straight-out trying to manipulate Jesse. It wasn't sinister, it was just awkward...and as I suggested earlier, Walt just ain't the hugging type. He isn't as good at it as he would have needed to be to really sell it.

    Agreed. No malice, all manipulation.

    It really is interesting how some people can get entirely opposite opinions of what's going on than others, watching the same scenes. :)

    Jesse is like a son to Walt. Though that's part of the problem... son vs. partner. Walt's never been good at showing his emotions to anyone.

    I agree. Jesse is family to him. He wouldn't anymore kill him than he's willing to do Hank. That isn't saying he's not willing to manipulate and ruin their lives to keep himself afloat.

    Interesting discussion about that scene on this week's podcast. Aaron Paul said they filmed it several different ways: one with Jesse fighting to get away from Walt the whole time, one with Jesse not fighting but clearly realizing that Walt is manipulating him, one where Jesse just breaks down and sobs, etc. Aaron actually didn't even know which one they ultimately used in the final cut until he was doing the podcast, which is hosted by the show's editor.

    So that tells me that in the script, there wasn't a clear description of what the emotions were supposed to be for that scene, and they just decided to try several different ways and see what worked the best.
