    Love the episode, especially since Walt's cabin soooo resembles my first place in NH.

    How long was he there? Two months? (Long enough for the hair, but still winter)

    According to talking bad! he was there for 3-4 months and is probably leaving a day or two before his 52nd bday and the diner scene.

    yeah, same question

    if they recorded Walt's conversation with Skylar then they have him saying "I'll do to you what I did to Hank"

    so they have Walt for suspicion of murder, and domestic violence, but nothing else really

    then there's Huell being watched by he DEA agent in the hotel room

    true the DEA agent doesn't know anything about Walt, but he knows Huell is involved in a case that Hank and Gomez are investigating

    and as soon as he finds out that Hank and Gomez are presumed dead he's going to think Huell knows something about their death

    so I imagine Huell was charged with conspiracy and offered a deal and then he told everything he knew

    still seems like they shouldn't have much evidence

    My thought. How could there possibly be only one more episode? So much to do!

    I still think he goes back to free Jessie so that he can do one thing to redeem himself, at least in his own head. He'll then offer his life to Jessie and let the chip fall where they may.

    Yeah, I think this is now a definite possibility... The enemy of my enemy is my friend sort of thing. But he won't let Jesse decide, he'll just let him go his own way.

    So Walt's obviously not safe for long, and might not even make it back to his cabin.

    I assume he scrambles back there, just ahead of the law. Rolls his barrel o' money down the hill, steals a car, buys a gun, loads the gun with ricin bullets, kills everyone he ever knew.

    DAMN!!!


    todd is hard core. and a soft sweetie.


    Once Flynn flipped out on the phone, I think Walt knew he was gonna tell people or figured it would be obvious people in the school would hear. So, he dials DEA in ABQ. Then lets the phone drop and just goes to the bar for a drink. What was his plan? Wait for the cops to show up? That changed after he saw Gretchen and Elliot on TV?


    At least we got the explanation on the house. Just kids that vandalized it.

    I like how the cleaner guy really has an actual vacuum repair business. But am surprised he got as involved as he did with multiple trips to see Walt. Seems like he would stick you in the new place and never show his face again. Yeah, I know. He suggested that's the way it worked. But it was different this time. But still.. I wouldn't expect it to go on so long.

    How does Walt get his strength back? He's clearly very sick at this point. But when we saw him in the diner and back in ABQ, I thought he looked better.

    Definitely not as intense or enjoyable as last week though Andrea's death was a WTF moment for me.

    To get real I could nit pick a ton of stuff but I haven't got the energy :)

    I'd like to say hello to those who stated Jesse would not make it to the last episode. It is kind of disappointing that it's coming down to Jack and Elliot to end things out, and I can't see how Lydia plays any significant role either (at least not one that I care about). I predict the last scenes feature Jesse and Walt alone somehow. Right now I am predicting Jesse kills Walt and gets away.

    I don't know why the Forster character wouldn't just kill Walt and take the money.

    We could have had a Saul with his new identity spin off after all :)

    Did you have running water?

    I'm not sure where Walt's water was coming from. Was there a well and an automatic water pump supplying that sink we saw?

    I don't think Walt would even attempt to go back to his cabin. All he has left is the $100,000. Once he buys the weapons (and car?), he'll probably be broke.

    Poor Andrea. And Brock now that he's lost his mother. At least Todd was courteous enough not to let him see his mother being executed.

    I'm not sure what Jesse was thinking trying to escape. Even if he had made it out, the threat was against Andrea and Brock, not him. Did he think he could get to them first to protect them?

    That has always been Jesse's problem -- not thinking through the consequences of his actions.

    Walt might realize that the brotherhood has Jesse on a chain. Waiot'll he hears that Anna was killed.

    As they said, Walt hates it when it's said he's a nice guy. Heisenberg comes out to reckon with that.

    He could have told Walt Jr., that he didn't kill Hank, not that the kid would believe.

    That. "It's not personal Sonny, it's business."

    The guy playing Todd is another guy, like Jack Gleason, that will never work again unless he's really got brown hair.

    It's looking like Jesse could be the last man standing.

    Oh!

    Walt is walking away Scott free and Marie kills him...with a purple Glock.

    Well, they removed any doubt about Walt's intent with the phone call to Skylar.

    This episode seemed like an exercise in getting people back onto Team Walt.

    Jesse will never be ok.
    Even if he lives he'll be the poster boy for PTSD.
