    Dude, no nitpicking. :)

    1. I think he was kind of freaking out.
    2. Todd isn't ready to remove himself from Lydia and probably kind of fancies the meth thing as a career.
    3. I think it goes to show that blood is thicker than meth goo (actually, it probably isn't). Jesse is not family, never has been. He's a messed up kid who put Walt's real family in harm. Time to remove Jesse.

    But he's only a dangerous man because of them. They are the muscle. He pays them to kill people. Why would they be afraid of him?

    I would steal the money from Jack and take my chances! :D

    you don't think Jack would take $70 million from Walt?

    I don't know who Colonel Jessup is. Sounds familiar. Let me check, brb.

    Ah... "You can't handle the truth!". I think I get your gist.

    Yes, amazing TV, amazing show. I'm just discussing the items that didn't make sense in my brain, and hoping someone knows what I missed. Perhaps I should call them something else, like TiDDUs: Things Drew Doesn't Understand.

    Most are easily explainable by people who watched the show using a different brain than mine. :)

    Walt killed plenty of others without them, and I think they know that. He's Heisenberg. Plus, he has a history of paying people to kill people. He has money to pay people to kill AB people. The AB aren't the only killers for hire. Hell, the AB probably has a list of enemies that would love to be funded to take out the AB. Walt could find them fairly easily.

    Of course Jack would take the money. Read what I posted -- it doesn't sit right with me the way he did it. Kill the DEA guys, why not just kill Walt. Why leave him alive? Perhaps to cook for you, but if so you don't set him lose with eleventeen cajillion dollars.

    Yeah, I was briefly confused by his tear but everything moved so fast I didn't put any more thought into it.

    I was REALLY confused by how he could have been so torn up over Hank and then such a dick to his wife. Now I know.

    Exactly. Things had already gone so crazy it was easy to imagine him losing his ****, just like him believing the barrel of money picture was his.

    I noticed that too but I wrote it off as a sign of how desperate she was to save her child.

    Anything you want.
    I'm betting that scene took forever to shoot/mix.

    Now see, THAT I got instantly. Even before they focused enough to see who was in the picture I knew it had to be the two of them.

    Was it that he wanted to watch or that he was willing to?

    It wouldn't be surprising if they were dumb enough to be terrified of the guy who's scary enough to get ten people murdered in different prisons... :D

    I think it's a combination of wanting to do right by Lydia and pride in his work. And greed. He doesn't just want a golden egg, he wants the goose.

    I don't think the AB is smart enough to launder $70mil without getting caught somehow. Perhaps Lydia has a system for that overseas that we don't know about.

    Yes, I know. I think you were referring to the way he was letting the Tom Cruise character know that the stuff Tom Cruise had as evidence was kind of trivial in regards to the bigger picture.

    I think that's what Getreal is missing. We like to discuss the show, if all we did was say "great show" it wouldn't be much fun so we deeply analyze it in a way we wouldn't with other shows.

    Yup.

    It really is a sign of respect. Not once in a Yogi Bear thread have I mentioned how it's unrealistic that bears walk upright, wear clothes and speak English. :p

    He blames Pinkman for Hank's death, and for costing him ~$70 million.

    Yeahbut, do they call it kidnapping and issue an Amber Alert when a father with legal custody takes his own daughter for a car ride?

    Exactly. The Nazis are not comparatively smart -- except for maybe Todd. If they were, they'd either
    A. Taken some of the money, left Hank alive, and dispersed as Walt advised.
    B. Kill Walt despite Todd's objections. (He'd get over it.)

    Yes. I also appreciate no one posting real spoilers.

    Since Walt figures he's going to be dead from the cancer real soon now, he figures he may as well take the responsibility for the whole criminal enterprise up to and including the deaths of Hank and Gomez.

    Yeah, I missed that because of ffwding through the commercials and it's only 6 seconds that starts on a black screen and is half over before the picture comes on. You can miss a lot on this show if you blink.
    Don't blink.

    That's what I would say it was.
