    Then explain the news clippings and the nationwide manhunt for Walter White aka Heisenberg that were all over in this episode..........

    I also would like to know how the DEA/FBI/CIA/NSA/NIC/NYPD/Homeland Security/boys in blue etc has enough evidence to put all that in motion. Is it the phone call that was recorded when Walt had Holly that then led them to uncover everything else????

    I don't understand why everyone thinks Walt has some kind of plan with Jesse.

    He thinks Jesse is dead. He has no idea the Nazis are keeping him alive to cook. Of course, he COULD suspect something now after the TV interview where they discussed the Blue Meth being back on the streets...

    Oh, and FWIW, Jesse Plemons (Todd) is REALLY impressive. For those of us who enjoyed his performance in Friday Night Lights, Todd is a COMPLETE 180 from Landry. He is a much better actor than I realized.

    Finding her dead and bloody on the front lawn won't traumatize him much.

    We know now that Walt was in the cabin 3-4 months. But Jesse didn't look like he had been cooking that long. His face was still beat up, his hair hadn't grown (I doubt they took him for a haircut) so I'm not sure his storyline was lined up with Walts in last night's ep.

    I agree he does not know about Jesse atm but it could be his redeeming moment in the end with the AB...now the ricin has me puzzled...too many possibilities..Gretchen/Elliott, Lydia, himself?

    You mean PSTD, right?

    oops, wrong show...:D

    This is going to be a long week, waiting anxiously for Sunday (and not because of football).

    My guess, Walt takes out the crew with the big guns, kills Lydia with the ricin and somehow saves Jesse. Another member(s) of Walt's family dies during the final act and Walt see's it before he dies (either gunshot from Jesse or ricin). Of course, considering my track record with this show? None of this happens!

    Yeah who does he want to poison instead of shooting? Why would it matter? Unless he takes the ricin himself.

    The DEA has been after Heisenberg. They now know that Walter White is Heisenberg. That's enough to launch a manhunt for him. They don't have to know every detail of his operation and we have seen nothing that indicates that they know any of that.

    It was my impression that the DVD lying on the floor was not THE DVD. It was simply shown to convey that the Aryans had broken in and riffled through a bunch of stuff in an attempt to locate the DVD. Once they show them back at their place watching the DVD, it's obvious that they were successful in their mission.

    The 3-4 month jump is after Jesse's last scene

    Exactly the question I had. In order to make it work in my mind - I just pretend that Marie told them some stuff and handed over some of Hanks notes. Then Skyler corroborated enough to set the wheels in motion. It's just a sloppy rush job that I'm not used to having happen on this show. One 5 minute scene with a single DEA guy explaining how they connected the dots, would clear it up.

    I agree. Hank would have destroyed his copy of the DVD. He certainly wouldn't have left it where anyone could find it.

    When Jesse was trying to escape his face had noticeably recovered so I think some time had passed by then.

    You just had to know that anyone who would name their band "Crucifictorious" would have a dark side.

    Walt can't save Jesse, so he offers him the ricin. He throws it in Jesse's cell.

    I was under the impression he was referring to two different batches. Time had passed and the cooks are getting better each time.
