    Yeah, I was thinking it was lucky he picked up a hot rod pickup with limited slip rear end.

    The Edge was shown with the parking brake on, but parked in neutral since the rear wheels did not spin but the fronts did on the Ford.

    Most cars have rear wheel parking brakes.

    Oh. Was I the only one that saw that the gas was leaking when they showed Jesse Pinkman hiding under the car?

    I knew. Walt didn't.

    Do a movie theater thing:
    WALT! O' MAN! I TOL' YOU DAT THE GAS TANK WAS LEAKING!

    Get comments and notes here everyone. I haven't been on Now Playing in a while but this episode deserves it. I too didn't realize Walt was taking the fall with his phone call to Skylar, although it seemed fishy to me and it wasn't a typical Walt moment, I was thrown off and couldn't quite pinpoint it. Thanks, I went back and watched it and saw the understanding in Skylar's face. Bravo.

    Anyhow, all the events in the last few episodes got me thinking about Walt's character. Is he inherently good? Evil? Neutral? Or where does he fall on the character scale? I dug up these two images. I'm curious what you all think where he falls. I like the second one as we see every aspect of his nature.

    Yeah, that first image doesn't really make much logical sense. The second one is spot on.

    I'm also back on Team Walt. He might lose his family and his money, but somehow, I want to see him "get away" with it all. But I doubt that will happen.

    We have no way of knowing how much time will pass before he comes back to town. It may be a while, in which case his cancer could have substantially progressed. If he is truly dying, then he really doesn't have much to lose. He might as well go out in a blaze of glory. :)

    One thing that hit me with Walt:

    If he's now invisible far away with the new life and ID. Before he comes back for whatever mission, how does he get the news that Jesse needs saving or the Ayrans need killing? It's not like they would have his phone number.

    My guess is that Walt decides to get the rest of his barrels from Uncle Jack so he can leave his family something (more) after he dies, although there's no easy way to put the money aside for them without having it confiscated.

    Don't we? When he picks up the car and gun from Jim Beaver at the Denny's, it's his 52nd birthday. And we know the events currently are maybe a month or two after his 51st, right? So we know that he's vanished for about (but a bit less than) a year before he returns.

    No way. The 51st birthday happened last season before the whole "Crystal Blue Persuasion" montage. Walt earned that whole $80 million after his 51st birthday. And then he retired for at least a month before Hank found out.

    Also, in this last episode, they said Holly was 18 months old, and she wasn't born at the beginning of the series. So there's probably only a couple months left until his 52nd birthday.

    :confused: Walt/Heisenberg WANTS Jesse dead. Jesse's betrayal lead to Hank's death, which Walt wanted to avoid at all costs ($80m, though Uncle Jack left him $11m), and led to the final destruction of his family.

    OK, all this talk about Walt's 52nd birthday and all (e.g. "why would his new identity have the same birthday") - we're rewatching the series and watched S05aE01 last night: You never actually see his DL to be able to verify the date, so we don't even know when this is with certainty. He could have chosen a birthdate 6 months offset from his real one. Shoot, he could have made himself a year younger and this "52nd birthday" at Denny's could be almost 2 years after the happenings of the episodes aired to date.

    Just sayin'... :)
