Todd will either bring down Walt, or create a new set of headaches for him.
Saul said that the DEA got Mike's nest egg. It remains unclear if that includes Kaylee's next egg.
You mean like every other major scene in the show?
Right, that's what I thought he said.
Sometimes these threads can really suck the fun/life out of this show.
I agree that there was a logical reason to kill the boy. But the vast majority of human beings I know well have a strong aversion to harming children. Most people would not just shoot a kid even if there was a highly logical reason to do so. I don't know many home robbers, but I would tend to give them the benefit of the doubt and not assume that most home robbers are psychopaths. So, yes, seriously.
It's moving from sometimes to oftentimes.
Todd will get hired by the dealers after learning the cook and Walt will die.
Did Walt go to meet Mike with the intent of harming Mike?
Did Walt return back to Mike's car (when he shot him) with the intention of harming Mike?
I interpreted that scene as Walt having no intention to harm Mike, either initially or when he went back to the car, but that he was simply trying to play the part of Heisenberg and act like a badass. However, when he got to Mike's window, he was startled, the gun went off, and Mike was shot. I don't think Walt had any intention of that happening.
That's hard to say: Did he take the gun to protect himself incase Mike wanted to kill him, or did he take the gun to force Mike to give him those names?
I agree with the poster who said that is the problem with having a loaded gun in your posession....it might lead you to do somethign you wouldn't normally do.
Walt seemed genuinely upset so I'm leaning towards not intending to shoot Mike but things getting out of control when Mike wouldn't give up the names.
I personally don't think there is any chance that Todd learns how to do the cook. He had the same look on his face going over his notes as I do when I look at electrical diagrams....
That might have been after the first cook. However since Walter wants to do two a week, I think you could get the gist of what needs to be done in about 2 months. You might not understand 100% the why of each step, but know what to do in each step.
Well, Walt took the gun out of Mike's bag. Not absolutely an indication that Walt intended to harm Mike, but a maybe.
Then when Walt went up to Mike's window, I think, yes, Walt intended to shoot and intended to harm Mike. Walt was peeved and was acting out. He was shaken after pulling the trigger but I believe he intended to pull the trigger.
It's also possible that Walt intended to kill Mike during the meet up, then he got cold feet but after the argument he was angry enough that he went ahead and shot Mike. Walt knows that if Mike gets caught, Walt is screwed, so it would make sense that he would want to take out Mike - apart from acting on emotion.
I didn't get how Walt didn't see Mike get out of the car, as the driver's door seemed to be in Walt's line of sight, but I didn't bother rewinding to look again as it didn't seem to matter given the way things worked out.
The "52 Ways to Organize" page (as per the link in the Happy Hour thread) has a link to this, which is mildly amusing:
35 Reasons Why Aaron Paul Should Be Your Favorite Actor On Television
The way I saw it, Walt had no intention of killing Mike. The only reason he shot him was because of his ego - Mike should have kept his mouth shut. Walt did give Mike his bag of money after all, minus the gun of course. If Walt had planned to kill him, why hand him the bag at all? Just walk up and shoot him. Or better yet, why even risk going to the airport at all? Walt put himself at a pretty big risk had DEA or police been watching the car at the airport.
But if Walt doesn't get out of his car with the bag, Mike is then suspicious and on the defensive, and Mike is likely to have a gun on him and not simply be relying on the gun being in the bag. Even if Walt planned to kill Mike all along, it seems to me that Walt would have taken this step to ensure that Mike didn't shoot him first.
One could also ask why Mike agreed to let Walt bring him the bag. Seems to me that the Mike we know would not have done that. Walt's the last person he'd want to do that. (I would have had Huell do it.) But that final confrontation needed to happen, and that's how we got there.
Why was the shady lawyer taking goodies to the bank lady? I kept thinking she was doing something illegal for him, but then you'd probably need more than a few cookies to make you break the law. So he's just a nice guy?
She wasn't doing anything illegal and I don't believe she knew he was doing anything illegal. What he was doing was at least a little suspicious - most people don't bring in big cases and access several safe deposit boxes on a regular basis. My take on the goodies was simply that he wanted to be on her good side. If he's her favorite customer, she's more at ease and less likely to think he's up to something.
I guess more likely he is just trying to make sure that the people he sees frequently like him. That is probably a good idea when doing what he does. But he didn't take advantage of it in this case -- it should have been obvious something was wrong when she gave him the cold shoulder. He should have turned around and gone out the door.
Exactly. I think he's just a genuinely nice guy. I also think he knows that the teller knows that when he shows up with a suitcase and wants her to open nine different boxes at once, there's a high likelihood that what he's doing is illegal. So he's probably bringing her the treats to just keep her on his good side and keep her from asking questions or getting suspicious.
