    Mike Punched Walt in the face. Can somebody punch Hank in the face too?

    They need to do something with Hank and fast. It was the exact same thing this week as last week - grumping at his wife, staring at rocks. Sorry, 'minerals'. Well, last week they talked about him taking steps during therapy and this week we actually saw him in therapy. I have zero interest in watching Hank and Marie's marriage straining over the aftermath of the shooting.

    I'm guessing Skyler will win the car wash owner over by telling him she's separated from Walt.

    I find myself fast forwarding during the Hank scenes.

    In that case you must be very impressed with his training as a speedwalker.

    Who called Walt outside of Gus's house? That was Mike?

    I think Hank is building himself an escape from his life - a whole new world, one rock (mineral!) at a time.

    Now Skyler can get Saul to dispatch Mike to the car wash guy to make him an offer he cannot refuse.

    Breaking Bad is getting so deep, dark, depressing and murky it's making me squirm. I don't know how it can last.

    I liked the little perky Roomba. In the real world it would have gotten stuck in the trash in no time and the battery would have died.

    I thought it was Gus on the phone as well. But, the next scene in the bar with Mike confused me and made me think it was him that made the phone call instead.

    I loved all the scenes with Jesse. The zombie discussion and him waking everyone up to start partying more was funny. His acting is so superb, especially once everyone left.

    I thought it sounded like Mike.

    And, boy, am I in the same zip code as all of you about Hank. But I gotta believe they're setting something up with him. I just can't see writers this good doing something this bad...

    I, too, thought it was Gus on the cellphone at first, then switched to thinking it was Mike in the bar scene.

    CC usually gives a clue who is speaking off-camera. In this case it was [man]. They must want us to wonder. But I'm wondering what did they pan to immediately after. No HD on D* so I couldn't make it out.

    I agree that it was clearly Gus on the phone. He would have told Mike about Walt's attempted surprise visit.

    I think Walt is winning Mike over to his side -- slowly but surely.

    Jesse could be Jay Mohr's little brother ... I always see that similarity whenever Jesse is onscreen.

    When the call first came in I thought it must be Mike sitting outside the house or something, but then during the call I recognized the voice of being that as Gus as well.

    I know as soon as this episode was over I wanted the next one.

    I got chills when Walt put the Heisenberg hat on while in the car psyching himself up to whack Gus.

    It was definitely Gus. In fact, I don't remember the fact that Walt went to Gus' house even coming up in Walt's conversation with Mike. Mike told Walt he needed to get better at tailing people, which I took to mean that Walt had tailed Mike to the bar and Mike had been aware of it.

    How stupid does Skylar feel now? Walt said he'd take care of it and she jumped the line. They should have had Saul make an offer on behalf of an anonymous client.

    Speaking of Saul, how hilarious and insensitive was his TV commercial?

    There's got to be another car wash for sale around there.
