    Why do we think it was anything more than vandals that trashed the house and wrote the name? I'm sure it was all over the news at some point and Heisenberg is a legend of sorts. It could have even been those kids that were skating in the empty pool.

    SMEEK :p;)

    But that was hee-larious! They even showed the billboard in the background!

    I thought Hank opening the gross package of brains, etc and pouring the blood on the floor was pretty darn funny-I wasn't sure what he was getting at and I, like Jesse, was like, WTF??? :D

    Then later, when he called Marie, she had just looked at the garbage and when he called, she asked him first thing, before even letting him talk, "Hank-why are there what looks like brains in our garbage?" Um, yeah, honey, I'm fine too-listen, I just arrested Walt...

    Speaking of which, Jesse called Walt "WALT" tonight, and I know I said before that I thought that the other week was the first time he called Mr White "Walter White" and apparently that was not right, but this HAS to be the first time Jesse has called him "WALT!" :up::up:

    I actually think the lottery ticket loop closed very well. He didn't need the coordinates for himself - he drove straight to the spot. He needed them to be able to quickly give to someone else directions to the spot. Though I'm sure he didn't expect it to be the Aryans he gave them to.

    I agree that Walt has made several sacrifices for his family. He probably should have walked away with $5 million and sold out to Declan before "Say My Name" but Lydia had already put the Czech empire bug in his ear.

    As for your humor, "the kid left so much booger powder in there, my Caddy is a K-9 unit's wet dream."

    I speculate Future-Walt's gun is to attempt to save Jesse from the Aryans. The ricin is for Lydia. The Aryans probably realize they don't need Walt and all his headaches if they can capture Jesse and force him to cook.

    When Walt opened the car door to get out the car beeped as if there were keys left in the ignition.
    Maybe all Gomie got was car wash keys.

    Nevertheless, he cares about the money and only put himself in a position of vulnerability because Jesse lured him there with a threat to the money. IIRC, Jesse did not threaten Walt's family, but just threatened to burn the cash. Whether you are still sympathetic to Walt because of his stated motives for wanting to protect the money is another story. But to say that he is the least responsible for the shootout simply ignores that if Walt was willing to risk the money (dirty money that he has no right to have for that matter), Jesse wouldn't have had any leverage over him. You also seem to be forgetting that Walt had already ordered the hit on Jesse before he even got the phone call about the money. To me, any blame that can be thrown at others pales in comparison to Walt's culpability and until reading your post, it never even occurred to me that someone could conceivably think otherwise.

    I really hope they don't turn Walt into a hero at the end by having him trying to rescue Jesse. That will be a disappointing ending to a show about a man breaking bad. I'm all for Walt coming back for revenge, but not for heroism.

    Oh oh oh!!! Walt rescuing Jesse would be a great ending (at least for me). Ricin in Lydia's tea.

    On another note, can't they just add food coloring to the meth to make it blue? I know Jack suggested that, it seems a simple solution.

    Just a side note... I saw the Methlamine tank shot in a preview, and it looked about 3/4 full.

    Just suppose Todd, et al get cooking again once all the dust settles. What are they going to do when the Methlamine runs out? Heist another train? Lydia is only so good.

    Also, how are they shipping all this blue meth back to the checzs? That right there has to be quite an operation like Gus had with the chicken batter.

    Or, he called it off when he thought the full force of the Federal Government was coming down on him. Why have a massive firefight between an Aryan gang and an army, with him in the middle?

    He had no way of knowing Hank and Gomie were off the res, so to speak.

    As for the lottery ticket, it's probably a non-issue, but there's no reason he would only have one.

    We've seen this. It's in bags that are submerged in what looks like oil or chemicals in barrels.

    Sorry :) That's exactly what he called him the earlier episode, somewhere in season 2 that I can't find.

    The episode titles of this series are getting so unwieldy. We started relatively simple, with episodes named things like Kafkaesque, and Abiquiu. Now we're at To'hajiilee. It's a good thing the series is ending: I could only imagine what next season would bring, especially if some Czech words wound up added to the mix.

    Hopefully you don't mean mine. I tried to write it to avoid specific spoilers.

    I was waiting for Meth Damon (or his uncle) to ask Lydia about her Eastern Europe contacts to cut her out completely. I do think he likes her though and that might be the only thing separating her from a bullet.

    I'm thinking maybe Lydia shows up to save the day. She wasn't too happy with the quality and lack of blue in Todd's meth batch, so I could see the wheels turning in her mind; "How do I get rid of these guys and get Walt's quality back?" Maybe she hires another crew and they show up in the desert just in time to save Walt/Hank/Gomie/Jessie? Otherwise I don't see how Hank and Gomie survive this.

    She handles all the logistics getting the meth from ABQ to the Czech Republic... Even if they did meet her people on the other end, shipping it would be near impossible in the quantities she's doing it at. They need her, or they need to sell locally. I think the Czech addicts have more money to spend than the local burn outs in ABQ.

    If they do survive there has to be some way for the story to continue for the remaining eps. Hank knows all now and has what he needs to convict so there has to be some kind of out.

    Despite my disappointment I have a weird feeling that the crappy shootout will somehow be explained in the next episode.

    I loved the Timmy Dips%$t comment from Gomie, especially since I have a dog called Timmy.

    They showed Gomie pick up the gun. I saw him walking back with it.

    I don't think mine cut out early, but Jesse is still currently in the car. His hand moved to the door handle and then he pulled his hand back. So I was left with the impression he is not getting out of the car.

    Hank and Gomie in the hospital. Somehow Walt and Jesse work together to get them into a car or the truck that may be not totally ruined by bullets. Hank can't talk, move or do anything, but he is still alive. Marie, thankful that Walt saved him gives him the key to the family home in NH.
