Breaking Bad "Face Off" 10/9/11

Haven't finished the show yet. But that was f'in badass. Love the episode title's levels of meaning now.

That was pure awesomeness. And it worked because Walt didn't need to find a way to lecture Gus before killing him.

Why do I get the feeling this series is going to end with Walt dead by Jessie's hand...

Wow, what an episode. So Walt was behind poisoning Brock. He really has broken bad, using an innocent child's life as a way to motivate Jessie.

And that wink from Tio in the elevator leaving the DEA was great.

I'm hoping this really ends with some kind of redemption for Jessie.

WOW! That was the best death scene ever!

It was truly perfect. I was kinda disappointed that Walt used a bomb (as opposed to shooting him face to face) and then I was even more disappointed when he walked out of the room seemingly unscathed......and then BAM! Very well done! This is the greatest show on television!

If you go back and watch the scene from End Times with Walt by the pool spinning his gun, on the third try where it points outward, it points at the plant and you can see the thought come into Walt's mind. Brilliant. I guess we should assume that Huell stole the cigarette pack from Jesse.

The missing ricin is a loose end. There's no way Huell grabbed the cigarette in the scene we saw. No one else knew about it. Jessie certainly seemed to be keeping tabs on that cigarette, so I'm not sure how he could have lost it, though.

R.I.P. Fring. What a great mastermind bad guy.

Taken out by an even greater mastermind, Walter White.

Saul had all the best lines though. Anal polyps indeed.

In Sepinwall's review, he says Gilligan confirmed that Huell took the cigarette during the pat down.

They paused for a second on the closed circuit monitor in gus's office. And then paused on the chicken logo in gus's car at the hospital. Makes me think that he DEA will find recordings next season.

As far as we know, Skylar still doesn't know that Beneke is dead, right? Because when she gets that little bit of news I'm pretty sure she is going to freak.

Loose end.....Plus I kept waiting for Mike to show up the whole episode. He has to play prominently in the final season.

When we watched that scene, my wife yelled out "That's so gross!"

Then I pointed out that she has no problem with it on the Walking Dead.

Maybe they borrowed some of the makeup/CGI people from the Walking Dead to pull off that shot.

When he first walked out of the room I thought he was a terminator. I was like WTF he is a T2 machine? Then I realized that was his SKULL exposed and not a aluminum chasis.

I really liked this season. Still enough stuff out there to wrap up a final season. Can't wait.

They did indeed use the guys from the Walking Dead, Gilligan confirmed it in his interview.

I also thought Gus was like a Terminator.

Walt poisoned Brock. What an a-hole. He deserves something nasty in the series finale.

Is Walt essentially broke now, other than the car wash?

I loved Saul's secretary getting her revenge for all of Walt's crap.

Walt didn't take all of the money under the house. There can't be too much left though.

Re: Walt's finances

I'm guessing he still has about $100K in cash, and of course the White's own the car wash.

If Walter was smart, (which would make for a boring ending season) Walter and Skylar would just work on making the car wash profitable, clean the remainder of their drug money, and live a normal life. They could even get to the point of being very well off financially if they are smart about owning a legitimate business.

Luckily for us Heizenberg will make things interesting.

I was thinking that Walt and Jesse were going to make a few farewell batches of meth when Walt said "We have work to do."

I have a crap memory. How was Skyler familiar with Gus Fring's name?

After Gus is killed, there's a scene with Jessie working in the lab and some guy watching over him, I think with a gun. Who was that guy? I would have thought with Gus dead the whole organization would be in disarray. And then Walt shows up with another guy and kills them both. Then it leads to them both torching the lab and walking away very triumphantly! That part of the scene was very good but I didn't get who that guy watching over Jessie was and how he was there.

He was one of Gus's goons. Probably one of the guys who grabbed Jesse and called Gus to tell him. He was in the lab when Gus was killed and hence had no knowledge of Gus being blown up!
