    I've been really enjoying the nighttime pool shots - I don't know whether it is an intentional choice on the part of the show runners, but the crystal blue pool water at night looks to me like a sheet of Walt's meth. We've now had Skylar's desperate suicide ploy, drowning herself in it, and Walt's more quiet contemplation of it. (I'd argue it is not a coincidence).

    She just as easily could have said, I can get you 100 more gallons, his supply was going to run out at some point and she was the supply line, rather then the writers introducing the international aspect, and there wasn't any real need to ramp up the money to a certain amount, as they didn't even name the amount it is. They could have said he made that much money with the Declan gang it wouldn't make a difference.

    Aren't we talking Breaking Bad here?

    Easy, the Czech "declan" find outs from the madrigal deliverer about Lydia, Czech "declan" gets Lydia talks about Walt, Czechs show up in ABQ.

    This is the show that Hank is the almost direct cause of a plane jetliner crash.

    Yes, that was just an example that good drama shows often throw in unfinished plot lines.

    For example, In BrBa, what happened to the cartel(s)? They're gone, as far as we can tell, but you know there are still operating. Declan even thinks the cartel got Fring. But we haven't seen the cartel since last season, and I doubt we'll see them again in any real capacity. If the cartel was out to kill Fring as everyone thinks, don't you think they'd be after Heisenberg (still)?


    That's "easy"? There is no Czech "Declan".. the people in CR are just low level dealers/sellers. They have no vested interest. If they get good stuff to sell, they'll sell it. They have no power or control. Sure, they might want to get more just because it's a good money maker. What are they going to do in ABQ? Threaten Walt? If they kill him, they get nothing. If they let him live, they get nothing. It's really not their decision.

    Even though you mean Walt, I can't make sense of your statement here.

    At the time she was meeting with Walt, Walt still had 900+ gallons of methylamine. As far as he was concerned, that was all he would ever need. I don't think her offering to supply more would have been of interest to Walt at that point. Basically, Lydia had to offer something that was enticing to Walt, something he didn't already have and couldn't easily get on his own. That something is a distribution pipeline. Just like Walt relied on Mike and now relies on Declan to take care of distribution, Lydia could fill that role as well. The international aspect of it wasn't necessary, but it made the most sense given that Lydia works for Madrigal and had international connections.

    1. Yes cartels are still out there of course and they could kill Walt too, your point?
    2. How do you know that much about the Czech meth situation, that there is or isn't a "declan"? That there is no distribution there, you don't.
    3. Just making the point anything can happen and be written to ie Walt causing a plane crash. Nothing is much of a stretch with the show. Your point of the possibility of czech's being a non factor based on very little information is just not the case.

    They say in the behind the scenes that it was 10 hits. The lawyer was the guy on the phone.

    You'd think he couldda gotten bail.

    Oh dear, here we go again. You don't know exactly as much as I don't know about the CR. I'm just disagreeing with you. I do not think your scenario makes any sense. It is just MY OPINION, just as your assertions are only YOUR OPINION.

    By the way, the Bin Laden quote was: "Whacking Bin Laden was easier than this".

    When I watched the episode the 2nd time, I recognized the bug hardware as Walt removed it from Hank's office. The audio bug in the photograph frame was a Bluetooth mic and transmitter. The EtherNet "dongle" receiver was paired with the mic, and installed inline with Hank's hardwired network connection. But it had it's own IP address and shipped packets of encrypted audio to Mike's laptop.

    State of the art 10 years ago. Now available anonymously online. You give it a unique encryption key and it's fairly secure.

    It's just one of the character's quirks. She's always wearing purple, and she's decorated the whole house in it too. Maybe there's deeper significance, but I haven't checked.

    I called that Walt Whitman thing.

    Also, total BS Sky couldn't count the money. Hell, Walt put it all in stacks. She's a bookkeeper, she would have counted. It wouldn't take that long each drop.

    Not to mention that it's all been counted and bundled already, BY WALT, so simply tallying up the stacks by denomination should be a piece of cake.

    I don't think it was that she wasn't physically able to count the money. I think she just stopped caring about counting the individual stacks since there were so many more than she could ever process. After the money had grown to such a big pile, she tried to think of a way to quickly get a rough estimate, but she couldn't think of any way that didn't involve going through each stack individually.

    When Hank joins Walt in the business, will he be a full partner?

    Exactly. It's not that they couldn't figure out how much it was (since it's already been done relatively easily in this thread).

    It was already so much money that they couldn't realistically do anything with it. It was too much to launder safely, so it's essentially just a big pile of useless paper.
