    jeez...there's an extra row for Ira, some costs are per cook and some are flat fees, there's no total, every other row should be shaded, ...

    um...oh...you were making fun of OCD?

    ah...never mind! :p

    To be honest, I left most of it blank and what not. I want to see if someone fills it out. :D

    The actor that plays Skinny Pete used to be a music major. He apparently sings as well.

    To my knowledge, the "standard" for modern construction is 200amp 220v main service. That's actually a good amount of power and since their lab equipment is built/modified specifically for this application, I don't have any issues with it. Also remember that they are scaled way down from what the Superlab was.

    As far as access, yes they could tap into the dryer & oven circuits. I also wouldn't find it unbelievable that they just tap directly to the main breaker as well. One of the lab crates could have their own breaker box with a pigtail to tap into the breaker in the house. It would only take a few minutes to do that. Hell, I could see Walt doing it with a couple of sets of jumper cables. ;)

    Why would Walt want to combine the two? He needs to keep Heisenberg and White as separate identities.

    Also, couldn't they bring a generator to power each cook without tapping into each house?

    LOL! :D:up: And they WERE GOING TO ... and DID! :D:up:

    Exactly. Even though Jesse, Walt & Mike are equal partners, the money guy may appear to be the boss (in Jesse's mind), but Walt needs Jesse to understand that Mr. White is "more equal" and the actual "boss" of the gang.

    Yeah. With Fring they were cooking 200 lbs. every cook (per week?), and currently they were only producing just less than 50 lbs. of meth. So the money is still pretty sweet.

    I expect Saul to be the last man standing ... just like a cockroach emerging after a nuclear holocaust.

    Everyone keeps saying theyre going to use the car wash. They passed up one of those places because of moisture. That would surely be an issue at the car wash. I guess they could buy industrial size humidifiers but that seems like a huge risk and loose end. Remember Hank became suspicious of Gus over some piece of equipment he had purchased.

    Pretty sure if they can wire a bunch of batteries to operate a giant magnet, supplying power to the machinery to cook should be pretty trivial.

    They could even run a quiet generator inside and pump the exhaust out the same way they pump the fumigant and/or meth vapor out.

    I believe it was the salt in the moisture that really was the issue, wasn't it?

    I think you basically answered your own issue within your post. We've had nearly 50 episodes before this season to cover less than a year in real time. We now know that the final 16 episodes will cover more than a year in real time. So the timeline of each episode has to be ramped up quite a bit. In fact, I suspect this episode took several weeks from when Walt got the idea to the time when they actually got everything set up and ready to do the first cook.
    I don't think Walt is going to be happy with that. Walt didn't kill Gus so he could get a 15% raise. I think Walt expected that taking Gus out of the equation and becoming his own boss would result in at least 2x as much money, if not more.

    Let's be clear -- Walt killed Gus before Gus killed Walt. Gus had pretty much what he needed from Walt -- his cook recipe. With Walt dead, Jesse could likely take over. I re-watched "Face Off" a few days ago, and there was the Victor replacement watching Jesse cook that last batch, and even he knew the steps.

    I think Walt thought that taking Gus out of the equation would keep Walt, Walt Jr., Skyler, Baby, and Hank alive.

    Of course. I'm not saying Walt killing Gus was solely so Walt could take over. It was primarily a self-preservation move. But my point is that with Gus out of the picture and Walt now thinking he's the new boss, I don't think he's going to be satisfied with taking all that extra risk yet only making a tiny percentage more money.

    I think it was more about the steam than it was about the salt. At least that's how I understood it when Walt repeated himself and emphasized "STEAM and salt."

    In my opinion, when Walt took out Gus, it was to protect himself and his family. I don't think taking over and becoming the new boss really entered the picture until the dust settled and he was broke and needed to rebuild his nest egg. Only then did he know he could be the new boss.
