    So Walter White and Heisenberg are household names.

    Gretchen and Elliot went on Charlie Rose and inadvertently caused Walt to come out of hiding!

    Robert Forster is SO GOOD at playing that type of character.

    I suppose that was Saul's exit.

    Is Jesse ok?

    And FINALLY, after hearing Vince and co saying for months how incredible Todd is, their hype started to pay off in this episode.

    Gretchen and Elliott are so going to get a Ricin-flavored gift-basket.

    Robert Forster was great.

    Todd is such a polite criminal. His momma sure taught him manners.
    Jesse is fine. Brock's mom - not so much.

    So how did the DEA go from knowing nothing to knowing everything? We know Marie would talk - but they don't really have evidence. At least enough to issue a massive manhunt for him. I feel they left too much off screen.

    We don't know if Walt's conversation with Jesse was ever handed over. We also don't know if they saw the Jesse confession tape. It does seem that Skyler isn't talking. So... I'm not sure.

    Is next week's episode just an hour? A lot to wrap up in a short amount of time, if they decide to wrap up a lot of loose ends.

    I noticed in the promo for next week's episode it said Presented by CarMax. Maybe that means limited commercial breaks?

    He had placed the call to the DEA before he heard Elliot and Gretchen. Now, did it change what he had planned to do when the cavalry came? Not sure.

    Agree, there's a lot to wrap up in 75 minutes, but it seems like he has some additional targets now.

    Not as good as last week's episode, but that bar was very high. It's gonna be a long week. :)

    Walt's former business partners from before he was a chemistry teacher. They were the ones who Walt said was paying for his cancer treatment at the beginning but it was really coming from meth proceeds.

    This episode was definitely more like the calm before the storm.

    I think he had full intentions of giving up and turning himself in. But then he saw the interview on TV and a fire was lit inside of him.

    I just can't figure out what lit that fire. Was it the snub that he didn't contribute to the company? Or was it the realization that there's blue meth on the streets, which means that Jesse is cooking?

    Whichever it was, it changed his mind to take action instead of being taken in.

    I think it's all of the above. His feelings are hurt because he's not getting credit for his contributions to the company, and because somebody else is cooking "his" meth.

    (And by "his feelings are hurt," I mean "his pride is driving him into a homicidal rage, the likes of which can only be assuaged through the generous application of high-caliber, large-magazine weaponry, and ricin.")

    Ego. The same thing that had him, instead of taking their help by going to work for Grey Matter, and taking advantage of their top of the line health care to fund his cancer treatments, saying Eff You to Gretchen and continuing down the path. He could have avoided ALL of it by simply saying yes to Elliott.

    It's the same ego that will destroy him.

    At the hands of his son. :)

    IMO -- Pride and arrogance.

    I now blame Walt for the death of Jesse's 2nd GF because he told the Nazi's about her and her son. He can drop dead any time now.

    Robert Forster was great - $10K for one hour of his time. Gotta go watch Jackie Brown again.
