    I think so but since I was not sure, I didn't commit too that!

    Earlier in the episode, a docile Walt meekly accepted a HJ for his birthday. At the end, the "took" his wife in an authoritative and passionate way and she responded to it with surprise and welcome. This time was similar yet very very different.

    "Walt is that you?"

    Her surprise that this was her docile husband and he wasn't quite docile.

    It was discussed on the podcast for this episode (Madrigal) that the final scene with Skylar and Walt actually went longer but had to be cut for time. In the longer version, Walt continues with his advances and Skylar, obviously not in the mood, reaches behind herself and gives him a preemptive HJ before he can take things farther.

    I'm glad they had to cut it, then. The creepiness/rape of the scene would have been totally ruined and become much less powerful.

    Not the way they describe in the podcast - it was even more creepy than the edited version. They described it as "rapey." They were still happy with the edited version, too, as they felt it conveyed the same thing they were going for in the longer original.

    Not sure how that would work. If she's volutarily giving him a HJ, even if she felt pressured to do so, that takes away any "rapey" feel from the scene and makes her a willing partner, IMO.

    This episode motivated me to replace the batteries in my 3 Roombas and get them working again. So nice to rid my house of excess dust, dirt, & dog hair.

    But loved the fix to this post. Though it wasn't a ricin cigarette, it was a salt filled, fake ricin. :p

    wow...I'm sorry, but your opinion is dead wrong! :)

    Being in the same room as him makes her shake with fear. Any sexual acquiescence on her part is out of sheer terror. Absolutely "rapey" in my book and in court as well.

    If she is doing it because she is afraid of him it's not voluntary, therefore very rapey. Maybe you have to be a woman to get it.

    A wife giving her hubby a HJ because she isn't exactly in the mood means he kinda'-sorta' raped her? :confused:

    Yeah, I get the idea that she is starting to fear her hubby, but I think "rapey" (i.e. pertaining to rape) is not the right word. It's a bit ... heavy-handed ... so to speak. She didn't tell him "NO!" and he proceeded to force himself on her.

    If you think Skylar is a wife who just "wasn't in the mood" then you are misunderstanding a great deal of the show.

    She wasn't "wasn't in the mood" she didn't want him to touch her. In any way. We had seen that already from the hugs he gave her and she just stood there.

    If a HJ is going to stop me from getting physically entered by someone I am scared and disgusted and confused because he is not the man I thought he was (or raped as they might say), then I would do the HJ.

    I guess he doesn't watch the show that closely...

    No, that's not what brought them back to Madrigal Electromotive. ME was clearly an investor of LPH, and more likely, Gus had a Cayman bank accounts (for Herr Schuler) which drew the DEA back to ME to investigate. Or maybe ME was a depositor to the Gus's account. The "air filter" lead from Season 3 was a dead lead, and had really very little to do with Season 5 (other than confirming that Hank was totally correct in his suspicion). Clearly, the DEA had evidence that Herr Schuler was connected to the meth production, as the CEO said he "acted alone" (but as the audience knows, he at least he worked with Lydia at ME, maybe others).

    Really, that took you a couple of viewings to figure out? It was pretty obvious to me, and I'm assuming most other people.

    No, that wasn't Herr Schuler looking at the photo of himself and Gus, it was the Polizei waiting for him in his office/reception area.

    I missed that. I thought is was Herr Schuler as well. But you're right, he was never in his office and the picture would not have been in the bathroom!

    Schuler went back to his office (but did not go inside). From his vantage point, looking through the windows of his office, he could see the police looking over his things (and paying particular attention to his photo with Gus). He decided not to enter his office, and instead turned, grabbed the nearby AED, and headed into the bathroom. He already had an excellent idea what they were there about, because as his assistant told him in the tater tot room "they're back again. This time three of them."
