    Interesting thought. Along those lines, how much would it cost to buy Hank out? 30M?

    The Breaking Good Spoiler from a couple of weeks ago was way off.

    The spoiler has Walt killing Skylar in the final scene just as she was about to walk out the door and talk to the DEA.

    It is interesting that he's taking the Ricin out. That was for Lydia, but who's to say who might be targeted next.

    What a drag now to have to wait a year!

    Since there are about 8000 straps in the pile, and they have just three denominations (20,50,100), it would probably take two people no more than a couple of hours to sort them into three smaller square-ish piles for each denomination, count, and multiply.

    Heck, I'd do it for them for a 1% fee.

    What did the DA mean by "Queen for a day and 5 k"? Obviously that some jail time, but how long, a year? I guess 5K some sort of criminal charge?

    Statistically speaking, how many of those bills do you think have WG stamps on them?? :D


    Tracking report:

    "Got this bill for turning tricks, used it to buy some smak, the good blue stuff".

    "I found this bill in a big stack of money at my car wash, it hidden in some cases of soda, got too lazy to use it somewhere else so I went and stacked it in a storage unit."

    When I first watched this Sunday night, I was certain Walt's cancer was back. Without a doubt, I thought he just bashed in the towel dispenser after his MRI.

    However, watching it again (just now) he looks at the towel dispenser and his reaction to seeing it is does not seem like he just bashed it in.

    So in other words, I really have no idea if the cancer is back or not. I'm really uncertain now.

    Found this online.

    "Proffer or "queen for a day" letters are written agreements between federal prosecutors and individuals under criminal investigation which permit these individuals to tell the government about their knowledge of crimes, with the supposed assurance that their words will not be used against them in any later proceedings."

    Wouldn't it be something if the cancer is not back, but instead Walt is now dying from exposure to the meth-making chemicals?

    I'm not sure if the cancer is back, but I think the bashed towel dispenser was meant to give us insight into just how much bad-breaking has taken place. Where before Walt was weak and emotional on news of his cancer's remission, bashing the towel dispenser in a what-have-I-done type outburst, now he seemed to scoff at his former self's weakness (in bashing the dispenser) and instead thinks himself too tough to show any emotion on whatever news he received, whether it was good or bad.

    One could argue that this is the right thread, and that is the wrong one, since this thread came first.

    Good point, that should make this the correct thread.

    My take on the MRI/Towel dispenser scene. Walt didn't get bad news that the cancer is back: he reflected on his life, how he felt with his diagnosis, and remembered the whole reason for him getting into the meth business was to take care of his family, which is now shattered. Walt realized he was off the rails, and is now trying to correct it.

    My prediction next season: Hank confronts Walt before making it official, Hank gets fed the ricin.

    He smashed that paper towel holder a LONG time ago - when he first found out he had Cancer. I think seeing that towel holder got him to FINALLY reflect upon all he has done. He tried to atone with Jesse and his wife. He says he is out. I believe him. Problem is, he will get caught now. Just the way it should be. He decides to pull out - but he can't run from his actions.

    But I think the point was, it was so much that it didn't matter and that it was getting out of control.

    And I think her "trick" worked on Walt. Saying $30million and seeing $30million (or whatever number that is) are way different.

    How many here would have sat down right then and there and counted the money?


    over and over?


    and swam in it?

    :)


    as far as predictions, I predict a fire in the storage place; 50% chance it's started by Skyler!
