    OOh nice thought. If so, maybe Gomez survives and Hank dies, so that there's someone to tell Marie that her husband is dead.

    Hank - but yeah, I agree. If Hank makes it out alive, I'm going to delete my season pass.


    (ok, not really)

    He knows the general location well enough but if the landscape changes over time he may not know where to dig.

    In a rush, it was hard to give directions to the middle of nowhere so he gave them the GPS coordinates. He perhaps should have munged them a bit so they would be accurate enough to get close enough to see the vehicles but not be the exact spot the money is buried.

    1) Whoever said "we better hear Jesse say ***** again before this is all done" got their wish when Walt was talking to him on the cell phone

    2) SCIENCE!!! That's how she blinded me.

    3) Am I alone in thinking that a SMALL part of Jesse continued to move toward Walt (which started last episode when Hank insisted that Walt did care about Jesse) when he saw that the location was the location of their first cook? That's a sentimental place to Walt because he and Jesse cooked there.

    4) At least Walt got to try explaining to Jesse that while yes, he made a kid sick, he made sure the kid wouldn't die - he measured exactly the right amount. Psychotic logic to be sure for anyone in our world, but in their world, it almost feels justified! :)

    5) FAMILY! Walt finally used family and Jesse in the same sentence!! Unfortunately, he said "almost like family". :( Still! Better than nothing! I've wanted him to call Jesse family for weeks now!

    I was hoping for comedy at the beginning - I wanted to see Uncle Jack pass out and hit his head because he wasn't wearing a gas mask.

    Do you think Walt maybe taught Todd a slightly different method so that Todd couldn't exactly reproduce his blue magic, so it was all just Walt's? (However I don't actually believe that, because recently Walt HAS looked like he's done)

    Agreed, Hank either most definitely dies, or we've been duped, because of the line to Marie saying he won't be home for a long while.

    Same here, unless it's CBS on Sundays, then I pad 90 minutes after.

    If Hank lives then Walt will end up in prison. Hank arrested him, they know where the money is, they have Walt confessing to quite a few things over the phone, which, if they have been smart about it, has been recorded.

    Since we have seen a flash-forward wherein that does not seem to be the case, Hank dies, so does Gomez. Or one or both end up in a coma or something.

    Or Hank (or Gomez) lives but Walt gets away during or after the gunfight, and Walt goes on the run.

    Could be, but somehow I doubt Todd and gang will keep them alive and yes, I just can't imagine Hank and Gomez killing or wounding all of them including Todd...

    They might.....if they get to the vehicle with walt then they have a hostage situation and a cease fire....Jesse may be toast. No way Todds crew gets hurt, not against a pistol and shotgun and they were wearing vests too. I wonder why Hank and Gomez didn't show badges or identify themselves more vocally as DEA. Todds crew may have backed off if they were convinced

    I have to agree - I found it distracting, too. It felt not enough like a real organic conversation where the actors were responding to each other and too much like a fake "conversation" where each actor did their lines separately and then the editor patched things into conversation form after the fact. I hadn't picked up on the audio quality being too clear, but now that you mention it, that was definitely part of why it didn't seem "right" to me. Also, Walt's lines seemed so carefully written to serve as a confession, later. "I killed Tuco and Crazy Eight. I poisoned Brock." It had "for playback later" written all over it. Which is odd, because I really don't envision the finale being one involving Walt and a courtroom.

    That said, I still loved the episode.

    My biggest nit to pick is how specifically Walt confessed over the phone. "I ran over those two drug dealers...etc." It didn't play right to me.

    Walt would have been more likely to say to Jessee "How many times did I save your life" or "all of the awful things you think I did were to protect you."

    Edit: Or, what danterner said.

    I kept waiting for Walt to realize he didn't bury the barrels in the up orientation.

    Also, even on tape, all of Walt's confession would be inadmissable as an unwarranted wiretap.

    Finally, with just the money, I think Walt's setup of Hank with his "confession" is still pretty strong. Hank continuing to go rouge/rougue is such a dumb move.

    Funny, all this time I though Gomie was the boss.

    It's not a wiretap, it's voicemail.

    Does Jesse know they have his phone? If so, there would be no problem. If not, then I don't know.

    There's a trailer/clip out there that shows Walt standing up one barrel on end in the pit at the end of the day (it was dark).. I'm pretty sure we didn't see him bury them all sideways. He rolled them from the truck that way, but I would guess he stood them all up to make it easier to retrieve money from one of them without disrupting the rest. But even if he did, the fact that Hank and Jesse knew the exact type of barrel, and how many, and that they got Huel to talk, by that point, it was too much specific information for Walk just to ignore based on the orientation of the barrel photo.

    The confessions in this episode? He was talking to Jesse, not a voicemail.

    Oops, conflation.

    Even so, in most states (I know Minnesota is one of them) you only need one party's permission to record a phone call.

    That's a pretense. He was talking to Hank, who was acting in his official capacity as a DEA agent (whether or not he told his bosses about it).
