    Didn't he turn 50 in the pilot and then 51 later (when Skylar was not happy with him), then 52 in the flashback? I thought there were 3 plates with bacon numbers...

    Am I wrong? Bueller?

    I think he turned 50 in the pilot... because he turned 51 in the middle of the series when Skyler begrudgingly broke the bacon on his eggs for 51.

    eta: I really doubt the show runners would make a gaff as big as that in this show.

    He was actually 50 in the pilot.

    Marie wasn't giving her a choice. If Skylar didn't tell Flynn, she (Marie) was going to do it. Now, in retrospect, that may have been better, because Flynn might well have been less likely to accept Marie's news, as surely even he knows that she blows things out of proportion etc. Skylar could have just sat there and said "I have no idea what she's talking about".

    Either way, I'll echo the masses and say this was really an intense episode.

    According to the writer of the episode's twitter feed, she said "Vince said to 'go big or go home'."

    You know, you're right. Carry on. :)

    Edit: Dunno what I was thinking, even the episode is titled Fifty One. It sounds like 18 months is right on track.

    Oh no, you're much nicer looking than chopped liver. I guess I didn't see your post, sorry about that.

    Meanwhile, Aaron Paul posted this to Instagram earlier with a spoiler alert tag. I guess I better tag it.

    ...and behind Hawkeye Pierce. :)

    Just my personal opinion. I too put Mackey higher than Walt by a smidge. But that's a different thread...

    If that's the best nits you've got, this was one hell of a great hour of tv. Colonel Jessup hopes you have more than that. :D

    I think we assume Todd keeps cooking to avoid having the Czechs after him. They have a contract you know.

    So what becomes of Walt Jr. a year from now.

    It could go either way. Drugged out and depressed, or working hard to "save" his family of three (mom and baby sister).

    Hmmm...

    The list was for you in particular. :)


    Kidding of course, but as others said, we're all free to state our miind here and discuss things. Some of those are thinking how things happened. That was my list.

    I find trying to tell us what we can and can't discuss is a bit :thumbsdown: -- but it's not really a big deal. No worries. You're entitled to your opinion too, of course.


    So, do firetrucks have labels on the switches? Like "Lights", "Siren", "Ladder", "Gas cap"...

    I did google it Marco, and while I didn't get definitive proof, it looks like there are labels. I'm still not sure Walt would mess with sneaking into a firetruck and spending much time. I would argue that setting Holly down next to the truck would get her noticed faster and be less risky.

    Best show on television in a LONG time. I caught up on Netflix, and then DVR'd the last few episodes.

    Last night's episode was quite possibly the best hour of TV that I have ever watched. Gripping, emotional, depressing, uplifting... wow. I'm breathless after watching it.

    And I wanna watch it again.

    With just two episodes of Breaking Bad left, AMC is taking a moment to recognize and thank the cast, crew, fans and everyone else who helped make the show a phenomenon.

    "It's all in the chemistry. Thanks to everyone who made bad so good," the ad reads. The text is accompanied by a picture of the series' iconic RV.

    I think all Todd wants is to improve his purity percentage so as to impress Miss Lydia.

    Not hard to believe. Not hard to believe at all. I don't think I said that. Just didn't sit right with me. Someone can probably verbalize it better than I.

    Seems like a loose end that the AB wouldn't leave. Why not just kill Walt and take all the money and not worry about retribution. I know Uncle said "Todd respects you" but is that enough reason.

    And also, they know Walt is scary and unpredictable and dangerous. Granted they probably didn't see the flash forward with Walt returning to town with a gun, but might'en they figure that Walt could come after them? I mean you just took millions away from a dangerous man but left him with millions? Uh, well... err... maybe you could have thought through that a tad more. He can hire an entire army to kill AB and then have more millions.
