Advertisements I think the writers have earned enough trust in the season 2 and 3 arcs that we can expect a lot of the early episodes to eventually pay off. This show allows for a ton of speculation about what could happen. For example, I read somewhere that (huge spoiler if it actually comes true which I doubt)... Spoiler Mike killed Gus in a scene we'll see later. Backed up with Mike telling Walt he won't talk to Gus again and the blood on his shirt in episode 2. There clearly is something up with Mike we don't know about because he keeps coughing. Looking forward to see how Walt Jr. breaks bad. The Breaking Bad Insider podcast is pretty weak unfortunately. It's a giggle fest with very little analysis about the characters.
