    I think the old Jessie coming back clearly was a major reason this episode was so damn good.

    How bout that bromance montage with Walt and the guy from Flight of the Conchords?

    I like the new lab guy. He makes a good point in that people are going to buy meth anyway, might as well make sure it's a clean product.

    Anyone else agree that part of the reason this ep was so good was partially due to the fact that there was so little Skylar?

    I prefer to think of him as that guy from Damages. or The Wire. :)

    But yes-very little Skylar...

    Who knew such warm skies and a gorgeous sunset could be so chilling. That was an amazing scene, a perfect combination of cinematography and plot twists. I thought for sure Walt was being set up, what with his new assistant in place (which could still happen, I guess).

    FANTASTIC episode. I was half-expecting one of the Cousins to calmly pull out a gun and shoot Gus during their sunset meeting. That man has nerves of steel.

    Seems like everyone is making coffee from elaborate chemistry sets these days. Didn't Walter (Bishop) do that not long ago on Fringe, too?

    All the breadcrumbs are there now, to lead Hank to Walt. He just has to connect the dots and not get dead, first. (I read his final scene as his realizing that he was conned out of leaving the RV, but not necessarily him yet realizing that it was Walt that orchestrated the con). I think when he does ultimately realize Walt's at the center of this it will be more telegraphed than a furious look. Still, he now knows:

    1. Jessie is (or at least works for) Heisenberg
    2. The RV is Jessie's
    3. Blue meth is produced from the RV
    4. Combo dealt blue meth
    5. Jessie and Combo knew each other
    6. Walt knows Jessie.
    7. Right after he called Walt to ask about Jessie and the RV, Jessie sped out of his house and straight to the RV. Will he realize the coincidence of timing?
    8. While he was at the RV, someone who knows Marie, and who knows his cell number, pulled him away from the scene at a crucial moment.

    I'm dying for him to put these pieces in the correct order and have everything click into place.

    I LOVED the legal showdown at the junkyard, regarding probable cause and the treatment of mobile homes as homes versus vehicles. :up:

    The pace of this episode was perfect, it was not rushed at all like a typical netwrok show. I loved how crazy angry Hank was at the hospital when he found out he was fooled into leaving the scene of the RV he had been looking for.

    If I were Jesse, I'd be skedaddling out of town for a while.

    II thought Gus was going to pull out a gun and shoot the twins.

    They don't pay Saul enough.

    I've missed Walt and Jesse as comrades the last several episodes. When they were both trapped in the RV it seemed to have at least momentarily pushed their differences aside. I hope this is the start to seeing more of them as allies again.

    I thought they would get the RV away from the lot before Hank pulled up. When I saw him pull in I thought "Oh ****". I thought it was a very creative and well written episode.

    This show is by far my favorite of all the ones I watch.

    He might put all of the pieces together, and then get whacked before he can tell anyone else.

    I was totally waiting on something else to happen here as well so it took me by surprise when he offered them Hank.

    Oh he was pissed. Great acting there. Jesse best not go home. I have a feeling Hank is gonna want to knock the snot out of him after that. He can only assume Jesse set that up.

    LOL You know that is true!

    Walt certainly doesn't care much about apartment furnishings if he'll take the demo apartment, as is. Jesse's not too big on home furniture either.

    Wow, what an amazing episode. I have to say this one is my 2nd favorite after "Grilled" (the one where Tuco is killed).

    The last two episodes have been stellar.

    On Damages he was Rick Messer
    the cop Frobisher hired to kill David
    -he had a big thick beard and glasses. On The Wire he was the head of the Baltimore Sun - or whatever it's fictional equivalent was. And of course on Flight of the Conchords he was Mel's put-upon husband. Nearly every role he is completely different.

    I see Dean Norris around town occasionally, usually at the airport (his parents/family still live here I think). If I see him before the season finale.......I will ask him.

    I think it is only a strong suspicion that the RV is the lab. How does Hank know that tidbit?

    If Gus wanted to save $3m, he'd pay Walt with a post-dated check -- dated for the day after the twins come a-knockin'. :D

    That wasn't just a demo apartment, it was the "show suite", so it would be better furnished than most.
