Right, but he might not have a choice.

Is he a straight arrow? He beat up those guys in the bar in season 2, after leaving his badge and gun in the car, and later lied about it.

He beat up Jesse.

If it were only Hank's life that would be impacted, from what we've seen of Hank so far I would expect Hank to be the staight arrow until the end, regardless of what would happen to his career.

Now, with his wife, Skyler and the kids in the mix? I dunno, I could see him bending his morals to avoid hurting them.

In the end though I do expect Hank to fall on the sword if it is necessary.

But will Walt's ego be able to keep that a secret.

I was surprised at Walt stopping things so, well, quickly. I mean wouldn't the distributors be a bit miffed at that and Lydia had things all laid out for him. Maybe I need to go back and rewatch the show. What was with the ricin at the meeting with her?

His plan could have been, once she gave the names, she was not disposable. And ricin her drink.

I was thinking, what if in the inscription in "Leaves of Grass", Gale didn't sign it "G.B" but just left it unsigned. Clearly, Hank would have still made the connection, but it would have been slightly less damming for Walter. Just a little more ambiguous as to what exactly Hank could do with that information. From Dexter, isn't there a "chain of custody" for evidence, so how would Hank be able to admit the book to evidence, since it has his fingerprints all over it? (<seinfeld>Sorry, this book has been in the bathroom</seinfeld>). I don't know, just throwing it out there.

I missed the reference to them being white supremacists. Did they have swastika tats or something?

Even if it wasn't implied at the time, the inscription which we now were able to read in this episode makes it pretty clear where Walt got the book.
Gale's fingerprints are on the book and it was found in Walt's bathroom. There's your physical evidence connecting the two.

Last week, everyone poo-pooed me when I said Todd's relatives in prison would take care of the nine.

I don't think the book itself matters much; what matters is that now Hank is on the scent. He'll start putting other pieces together now that he's had the "a ha" moment.

Very slightly. The handwriting was an obvious match to Gale's lab notes.

On a side note, I was at a party Sunday and picked these up for myself. The party was a lot of people that really don't watch tv and didn't get my BB jokes about my drink ("liquid blue meth" "Walter White special martini" and "Yo, bitches, it's the drink" and such) Well, then a gang of younger guys showed up and we sat and talked Breaking Bad for about an hour.

Great interview with 'Breaking Bad' creator Vince Gilligan. No spoilers, but some fascinating insight into what has been, and what will be (not spoilers, just his general musings). He also discusses the passage of time (is it 2007, is it the present day?), and more.

If you read these threads, you should read this interview.

What Dan said. Hank won't need the book for evidence. It's just the thing that put him on the trail, and he'll now be able to start investigating and finding more stuff now that he has a strong suspicion that Walt was involved with Gale.

Looks like Gilligan pretty clearly answers the debate we had in the last episode about whether the DEA got Kaylee's money:

Quote:
Sepinwall: And just to clarify, I assumed the feds seized Kaylee's money along with the other boxes, but some of my readers have held out hope that it was untouched.

Vince Gilligan: Oh, yeah, they got her money. Saul even says this is the second time they're taking the bankroll. Kaylee does not get her trust fund.

Very disapointed! For about a week now, AMC has been collecting hundreds of "fan" questions on their website to ask Vince Gillgan. They just published the ones they picked to answer. In the 1000 or so questions people posted, there were some really good questions (80% were junk, but in the remaining 20% were some very good ones).

And these are the best ones they choose? These are OK, but really, they could have done so much better.

yup. It was done with great care. Found some good monologues and stiched together some scenes to go with it.

The Journey of Walter White
You know, after watching this, I think no matter what happens to Walt in the end, he's better off after having gone through all this than if it never happened. He'd probably be dead now, otherwise. Instead he spent an extremely lively year or more doing something completely different, in a world completely new to him. No matter how you might look at it, he lived during this time. LIVED. It's practically like a real-life year-long visit to a resort-of-the-future a-la-WestWorld.

Sure, he would be dead. But there would be more other people ALIVE.

I kind of sense Lydia's main goal at this point is to not get killed.

I think if Walt wants to stop she'll happily take that.
