Breaking Bad S05E07 "Say My Name" OAD 08/26/12

Wow. I never in a million years thought the writers would have the guts to off Mike. Well played.

This opens a whole can of worms. How is Walt going to dispose of the body without Jesse finding out? Can Walt really tie up all of the loose ends?

Todd helping Walt cook didn't feel right.

Walt will leave the body for the police to find, or get Todd to help out.

Wow to Mike being killed by Walt. If Jesse finds out that it was him, that would really be the final straw.

Two sides of Walt. One side, teacher to the new boy. Patient and instructive. Other side, Heisenberg - a Walt ego/pride combined with a Gus cold blooded nature to succeed. He seems to take on traits of those he kills.

I don't like Todd as a new assistant. He is not Jesse. He may want to be, but he has some twists in his brain. I won't be surprised if he does something else very impulsively and messes things up again. Something he does that will think make Mr. White like him more. He seems to need that.

Oh Jesse, run away now. I want to see you move to Boston and have your own spin off show set there. I don't care what it is, I just don't want Mr. White to kill you too.

Any chance Jesse will come after Walt if he finds out about Mike?

I was half expecting Skylar to be helping him with the cook.... that would have been crazy.

These 8 episodes have been one big teaser/closer/transition. I hope the last 8 will do the whole series justice.

Minor spoiler for Episode 8

Spoiler:
Episode title is Gliding All Over
That's a poem by Walt Whitman

Gliding Over All

GLIDING o'er all, through all,
Through Nature, Time, and Space,
As a ship on the waters advancing,
The voyage of the soul--not life alone,
Death, many deaths I'll sing.


Can't wait for next week!

How are they going to explain that Walt's phone was the last to call Mike? I once was the last person who spoke to a woman (it was for a business appointment) who died mysteriously (later ruled a suicide) and was the first person the police contacted.

I'm not sure Jesse will or has to find out about Mike.

Wasn't Mike set to sail off into the sunset and never be heard from again? Jesse and Mike did their goodbyes.

Walt disposes of the body (and car) and perhaps no one ever knows...

I'm pretty sure all the cell phones these guys use are pay-as-you go and untraceable. Walt probably still has two cell phones, but just doesn't need to hide them anymore.

He's going to disappear the same way he wanted to make Lydia disappear.

Speaking of Lydia, that was great when Walt realized he could have just gone to her for the list.

Heck, Saul had a drawer full of them!!

I am sure no one was surprised to see the Car Wash closed and the Meth truck pulled up in there.

I also am laughing because there is now a candy shop that is selling the blue meth rock candy they use on the show.

How was Mike able to meet Walt but not go get his bag from the airport himself? How did he even get away from the police at the park?

The tails had been pulled off Mike.

My guess is he slinked away from the park (leaving his granddaughter alone) and then drove to somewhere safe. So that part makes sense.

I too don't know why he couldn't drive to the airport. Perhaps he felt the airports were being patrolled?

I think he just walked away and got a ride outta there somehow, cab probably.

Those cops looked like regular beat cops, they appeared to be responding to the car more than to Mike, I don't think they knew what Mike looked like.

I rationalized it as Mike thinking that the airports were being watched, and anyone that has known associates with Mike would be noticed.

So that rules out Saul being able to go (which is why Saul declined the offer), and also Jesse by way of Saul.

Beginning was bad ass. "Say my name".

When Walt has a great plan, he makes a good argument.

After the thread a few weeks ago, this is bound to cause some controversy:

Wow.
I'm in denial that Mike is dead. I really loved his character and now I hate you Walt!!

Just kidding. This show is awesome. This episode went by quick that's for sure. When it ended, I was like, "already?"

I'm starting to wonder now what Walt is sizing up on guns and ammunition for. Is it against Jesse, cops, or that other drug cartel that Walt was negotiating with in the beginning.

No, but now that Mike was pinched, the "hazard pay" for the 9 guys would stop, and one or more of them would flip. Walt wanted those 9 names so Walt could take them out before they flip. Mike didn't comply and Walt got pissed off.

Yeah. While Walt does think a lot of thing through, this time he sort of freaked out. Makes sense to me.

Walt keeps cooking. He still sees it as being in business for himself. But now he is working with people he doesn't know as "partners". I don't think this is gonna work out too well for him.

But the drawer of phones fit his personality perfectly. Man, he's a shady one.

Right, especially because they're collecting the money, so they can keep whatever they want and dictate their own (new) terms.

Well, I guess we know that Betsy Brandt's "spoiler" from last week's podcast was a joke.

So where was Walt setting up that cook location? Was that in the car wash? Was it in the warehouse where they had previously stored the methylamine and where Mike had cuffed Walt to the radiator?

And how is Walt going to manage two different cook locations? Seems like the cook is pretty labor intensive. It's not like they start something and then come back a day later. It's a process that's started and finished all in the same "shift." So why was Walt setting up that additional cook location if he can only be in one place at a time. Shouldn't he just focus on maximizing the cook potential of that one location rather than trying to set up more than one?

No way. Jesse has a conscience. Walt's has broken ... bad! Walt proclaimed himself as the man who killed Gus Fring during the awesome opening stand-off/meeting with the other drug dealers. He stood his ground like an old pro. Jesse is not enough of an alpha male to go after Walt ... unless he turns state's evidence and goes to Hank to cut a deal.

That's the problem with having access to a loaded gun. A momentary lack of impulse control leads to irreversible consequences.

With the car and Mike in such proximity to the river, I would think that Walt would dispose of both. And now he also has Mike's moola.

Todd is a dummy and a loose cannon. Aligning with him is a HUGE mistake on Walt's part.
