Well, he does have a few cases of Ensure.

Definitely not as intense or enjoyable as last week though Andrea's death was a WTF moment for me.

To get real I could nit pick a ton of stuff but I haven't got the energy

I'd like to say hello to those who stated Jesse would not make it to the last episode. It is kind of disappointing that it's coming down to Jack and Elliot to end things out, and I can't see how Lydia plays any significant role either (at least not one that I care about). I predict the last scenes feature Jesse and Walt alone somehow. Right now I am predicting Jesse kills Walt and gets away.

I don't know why the Forster character wouldn't just kill Walt and take the money.

We could have had a Saul with his new identity spin off after all

Did you have running water?

I'm not sure where Walt's water was coming from. Was there a well and an automatic water pump supplying that sink we saw?

I don't think Walt would even attempt to go back to his cabin. All he has left is the $100,000. Once he buys the weapons (and car?), he'll probably be broke.

Poor Andrea. And Brock now that he's lost his mother. At least Todd was courteous enough not to let him see his mother being executed.

I'm not sure what Jesse was thinking trying to escape. Even if he had made it out, the threat was against Andrea and Brock, not him. Did he think he could get to them first to protect them?

That has always been Jesse's problem -- not thinking through the consequences of his actions.

I just can't figure out what lit that fire. Was it the snub that he didn't contribute to the company? Or was it the realization that there's blue meth on the streets, which means that Jesse is cooking?

Whichever it was, it changed his mind to take action instead of being taken in.
Walt might realize that the brotherhood has Jesse on a chain. Waiot'll he hears that Anna was killed.

As they said, Walt hates it when it's said he's a nice guy. Heisenberg comes out to reckon with that.

He could have told Walt Jr., that he didn't kill Hank, not that the kid would believe.

The guy playing Todd is another guy, like Jack Gleason, that will never work again unless he's really got brown hair.

It's looking like Jesse could be the last man standing.

Oh!

Walt is walking away Scott free and Marie kills him...with a purple Glock.

Well, they removed any doubt about Walt's intent with the phone call to Skylar.

This episode seemed like an exercise in getting people back onto Team Walt.

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.

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.

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.
