    That was INTENSE.

    It was just one thing after the other. You barely had time to catch your breath, let alone absorb it ll.


    And whomever was saying that Anna Gunn can't act needs to have their head examined!!!

    I'm watching Talking Bad....and now I know why I never watched it. Thought I'd give it a chance after such a good episode, but what a waste of time....mostly fluff and silliness.

    I feel like an idiot that I didn't get Walt's intention with that last phone call (until reading this thread), that he was trying to cover for Skylar. I just thought he had gone off the deep end. Pretty brilliant.

    Anyway, the episodes just keep getting more and more intense! I can't imagine what we'll see next. Well, I can, but it will never be as good as what they've in store, that's for sure.

    I've seen the last 3 episodes, and all I got from it was they say "we'll come back to that later", "we'll have more of that later", but they never do, just a lot of commercial breaks and selling of stuff on the website.

    I did enjoy Samuel L. Jackson a couple weeks ago though.

    It seemed like the shootout was over a lot quicker in this episode than in the last episode.

    As she was walking towards the camera I said out loud "which is she reaching for.. the gun or the phone? Which is more dangerous??"..

    During the rolling around with the knife, I was so afraid.. but not directly of someone being stabbed, but more by the show using such an over-used predictable cliche.. I <I>knew</I> they wouldn't but I was afraid they just might (have someone stabbed). Glad that didn't happen.

    I kept saying "Noooooooooo....." (in a harsh commanding way) at Skyler during the whole scene.. I totally agree, she shouldn't believe anything Marie says (although maybe it's such an inevitability in her mind that all the needed was for Marie to say it to believe it).

    I was hoping they would somehow fit in "Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!", but alas, it was only implied. :(

    I also think Marie's haughty, arrogant, smug superiority really helped sell it.

    I agree about tonight's- it was way too silly after maybe the most dark, intense episode of TV ever

    I didn't either. I mean, we had just seen Walt tell Jesse about Jane (harsh!!) moments after he asked Todd's uncle to finish the actual job he wanted him to do. (harsh!)

    Walt gets home and when Skylar and the kids arrive, tells them to pack up and go. They refuse him. Then, Skylar turns on Walt. Goes after him with a knife. Actually slashes his hand. Walt goes after her. Instead of just getting the knife away from her, it really seems like he is about to kill her (harsh!!) until Junior gets involved.

    So, yeah, I don't think it was too weird for me or others to think Walt was just going all total Heisenberg on everyone now. I mean, they REFUSED him. And Skylar tried to kill him. I think it was clear Skylar was no longer content with the situation.

    Me too. Holy bleep that was an intense hour of TV. RIP Gomey and Hank. Walk is a real POS!

    I think under normal circumstances, in normal TV shows, we all would have picked up on Walt's final phone call.... but there were so many super intense things all happening at once (Hank dead, Jesse knows about Jane, Jesee being tortured, Walt kidnapping Holly, Walt Jr finding out, etc, etc) that that is a lot to process in the background while the show continues on pounding us with more stuff. Admittedly, I didn't fully catch on to the full meaning of the call, but I did feel a twinge of "um, Skyler would never say 'I'm sorry' to Walt like that" but I just didn't have enough mindspace to fully process that thought and the phone call. It was brilliant TV, but Vince sure didn't give us 10 seconds to think about a scene before dumping another huge scene on us.

    Plus, it did have to be convincing enough to fool police, prosecuting attorneys, and potentially juries. Having Holly helped sell it too (and it put Skyler in the right frame of mind for when the cops got there). She <I>felt</I> like the victim there - Walt just took her baby.

    Also, up until this episode I really was rooting for Walt. Not anymore. He's just so total and completely evil with telling Jesse about Jane and letting the AB take him to beat the crap out of him and then kill him just like that. So cold and purely evil. Just moments after he's pleading for Hank's life.

    But then there's a tiny part of me that thinks the flash-fowards are now Walt going back to face the AB and free Jesse from his enslavement and eventual murder. They ride off into the New Mexico sunset in a new RV.

    But upthread is probably right, he's going back for his money.

    I believe that last episode it was shown from multiple angles, making it appear to last a lot longer than it actually did. Common Hollywood trickery.
    This episode had the real time shootout so that we knew there weren't just "bullets flying everywhere".


    Holy Sh**!!

    I was actually gonna get onto Team Walt once we knew Todd's Uncle and crew were gonna get Walt's money. But it was fleeting because of what happened after that.
