    Loved the scene when Saul finally realized he doesn't have to be afraid of Walt (although picking up empty suitcases was not good).

    I don't think Walt is coming back to save Jesse. He's coming back for his money. That's what he had wanted to do since before he even left.

    Yeah the empty suitcases was totally obvious. They can do better than that!

    Another good episode, after last week..the bar has been set extreme high. I agree with comments above, I thought the DEA knew too much in the meeting with Skyler. The story felt like more than 3 or 4 months of time passed in New Hampshire with grand jury selection, auctioning the home but Jesse's story was much shorter, his face was still beaten and swollen. My vote is he is only coming for the money, Jesse will be a afterthought. :(

    Just because he "makes people disappear" doesn't mean he's also a murderer.

    Although you have to admit, doing both would definitely increase his profit margin per customer.

    But Walter White's example is nothing if not a lesson in reaching too far.

    By keeping things "simple" the Cleaner is able to make a significant amount of money without messy situations. Even his relationship with WW is well outside his norm, as he mentioned.

    I think he's a smart guy that knows how to live under the radar and not fly too close to the sun.

    Why did Todd give Lydia and Jesse different purity numbers? Did he under report to Lydia or over report to Jesse? if anything, you would think he would give Lydia the best possible number. Why give Jesse the higher number? Who is that helping?

    Oh, I agree that this is a special case. I would suspect it is pretty rare that one of the Cleaner's clients is quickly dying of cancer while sitting next to a barrel of money. That's almost too east to let things go to their natural conclusion.

    I was more thinking of his normal clients, where he takes the money, gives them a new identity, and never sees them again. These are the clients where it might make sense to "disappear" them in a more permanent way and then save the cost of the new identity and transport.

    He told Lydia it was 92% but told Jessie that it was at 98%.

    Yeah, I think you're right. It was definitely a different percentage with the higher number being given to Jessie.

    Maybe he was just trying to encourage Jesse in his weird Todd way. Or maybe they did another cook after he talked to Lydia and got it up even more.

    Or maybe Todd was lying to everyone.

    I doubt most of his clients have barrels full of $11 million.

    He is all about risk. He gets a one time fee and helps people disappear. Walter is an exception.

    If he actually kills his clients now he has bodies to dispose of. He increases his risk exponentially and there's unlikely to be much extra money in it.

    Todd is weird. Maybe he lied to Jesse to better justify his ice cream reward? I dunno.

    I wish they hadn't done the flash forward. I already knew he was going to New Hampshire and coming back. I was a bit disappointed in this episode, especially after last weeks.
