    AH! Great catch there. Looks like they may have actually filmed him collecting the revolver, then cut out that part in post production. Likely due to time constraints.

    Anyway my main point was there is some potential for a Jesse/Todd "face off" to take place in some form or fashion at some point before all is said and done.

    Looked to me like Jesse was going to slink out of the car and run away. The car he was in was far enough away from the shooting that it was probably a safe thing to do.

    Also as soon as I heard the conversation between Hank and his wife I said to myself "Hank is going to die". It had the feel of a final conversation.

    I'm looking forward to it! It could be great - I love Saul. I'll definitely give it a chance.

    I think Saul is one of the more annoying characters in the show.* He plays a good sleazeball, but I couldn't imagine a good show being based around him. I guess we'll see.

    * The most annoying one being Skyler.

    I think if the Better Call Saul spinoff show is more lighthearted and funny (30 minutes) it would work fine.

    it could just be some character development.

    I think it was described as an hour long drama.

    I agree. I'm not "into" it like the other shows I enjoy on AMC but it isn't horrendous, IMO.

    Edit: I'm glad it doesn't engage me as much because I'm still wound up from BB.

    There's a fascinating discussion in this week's podcast about filming the scene of Walt driving out to the desert and recording the phone call between Walt and Jesse. Walt and Jesse were actually sitting in two adjoining rooms talking to each other on the phone, but they were each being recorded by separate microphones.

    All the scenes of Walt in the car were done on a stage with green screen. There was separate footage of the scenery going past that had to be inserted into the windows. Then there were a few actual vehicle shots of the car racing across town and out into the desert.

    Then they had to cut the Walt in car scenes in with the audio of the phone call. Then they had to figure out what streets and turns Walt's car was supposedly taking so they could insert realistic footage into the windows. And those had to match with the occasional cutaway to the exterior shots of the car. The editor said that's probably the most difficult thing she's ever done, and she's got some decent credits under her belt.

    The bit that amused me the most on the podcast was the comment that for the scene with Brock, since the child actor has grown quite a bit since he first appeared they had to scale up the table and the items on it, to make him appear smaller than he now is.

    My mind is still unable to grasp what goes into shooting a movie or TV show. What they're describing is hours upon hours of work by a ton of people, all for a two-minute sequence. And the messed up part is that if the job is done correctly, you WONT notice it! lol... All of the work that went into piecing it together so it looked real. Can't handle it.

    My calling it Horrendous was based on absolutely nothing but the commercials. Never saw it. Just looks horrendous. I should have clarified.

    And that's why he had to be sitting, because if he stands up he'll look too big.

    AMC so overpromoted it that they turned us off from even giving it a shot, so I can understand. It might not be a bad show (after all, he's "not a bad person") but unless it starts getting awards and accolades we'll not be watching.

    OK, I rewatched last night.

    Does Brock know Walter poisoned him? He always gives WW the silent treatment. Was it ever made clear just how WW got Brock to ingest the lilies of the valley? It's not like you can just count on a kid to eat poisonous berries on a specific day.

    Knowing what a big Sergio Leone fan Vince is, I found it very interesting that Jesse, Hank and Gomez (and Marie) were wearing black and Walter was wearing (off) white in this episode.

    It wasn't made explicitly clear, but it has been speculated that he got to Brock at school.

    There was brief scene in Saul's office where you can see his secretary shredding school schedules if you look closely.

    However, looking closely at the image it looks like the courses are too high-level for Brock's age. PSY? And the dates appear to be 2003 dates. So who knows what that actually was about. I do recall that "how did Walt actually poison Brock" was discussed briefly on the podcast an episode or two ago, but I don't recall what they explained other than that it was an "in the minds of the writers, but not explicitly shown on the show type of thing."

    I don't know why this didn't occur to me before now, but I just saw a comment somewhere else about the Saul spinoff.

    Both Walt and Skylar have been wearing cream/white colors for the last few episodes.
