"Tread lightly" indeed.

I noticed that Badger was right that tulaberries come from the Gamma Quadrant, but Skinny Pete was wrong about the show being Voyager.

Re: Breaking Bad Final Half Season

Loved the Trek references. Somebody on the writing staff is a big Trekkie.

Thought it was a strong start to the final season.

Re: Breaking Bad Final Half Season

I am glad they decided not to drag out the confrontation over the whole season. The next seven will be pretty intense now that the air has been cleared.

That confrontation at the end was amazing and Hank punching Walt was satisfying. Hank has suffered more than anyone because of Walt's actions. To play up the Star Trek theme, Hank is facing a no-win scenario.

He might not know who Walt is anymore but he knows how far Walt's reach can go. He risks shattering his family and destroying his career...Hank's not even going to be able to get a job as a security guard because of his connection to Walt. So does he let cancer take his cost (eliminating Heisenberg and preserving his family and job) or does he turn Walt in?

My only complaint is that it was really stupid of Hank to take the book out of the bathroom. Just take a picture of the writing on a camera phone.

That whole thing was...wow. The scene between Walt and Hank was the one I've been waiting for for five seasons, and it didn't disappoint. Of course Walt would be a lying sack of shit who would play innocent. Of course he would. And his bald-faced lies to Jessie about Mike? What a tool.

I couldn't believe how long they let that scene go on. Most shows might throw in a nod or two if they wanted to show that a character is a Trekkie, but that was hard-core.

It was like really great sex. Mind blown.

It was great, my only minor objection was a TOS fan wouldn't use a hard G in "Rigel."

Great setup for the rest of the season, I'm really looking forward to it.

^They also mispronounced "tulaberries" (TULL-uh-beries rather than TOO-lah-berries).

They got a lot of shit wrong, but I don't know if they got it wrong because it doesn't matter, or they got it wrong because the speaker was a burnout drop kick.

Re: Breaking Bad Final Half Season

So.....the question is obvious. How long before Walt realizes that Jesse Pinkman is a threat to him? Hank he might manipulate into leaving him alone by threatening his career with the DEA, but Hank and Jesse have history, you know. Hey there, Jesse. Got a little conscience going on, Jesse? How'd you like to screw over Walt for a little immunity from prosecution there, kid? If Jesse even suspects that Walt poisoned his girlfriend's son, he has zero motivation to protect Walt, cancer or no.

Nice to see Jesse not buying Walt's bullshit. Jesse's no longer trusting, and he was never stupid. Him putting together than Walt never would have gone after Mike's men in jail if Mike were living was sound reasoning. I wonder if that poison Walt was getting out of the outlet was for Jesse. He's not going to a shootout with that, and who else is he going to need to killy on the sly? Will Walt stoop that low? I say he will. If that cancer goes into remission as the full head of hair indicates, Walt is going to want his happily ever after. or at least want to evade prison. Jesse can send him to prison.

I have a funny feeling that ricin in the cold open is intended for Jessie.

If he was serious about retiring in the first place, he probably should have just killed Lydia. She's never been a stable influence anyhow

Re: Breaking Bad Final Half Season

Yes, but killing Jesse would be the most gruesome yet appropriate end result of Walter White's total moral decay. I can see Vince Gilligan going there at the end.

Dead men can't get immunity to testify against you in court. Jesse knows where all the bodies are buried. Literally.

Re: Breaking Bad Final Half Season

I'm not going to abbreviate, OH MY GOD! This was incredible, I did not see a confrontation coming right off the bat. I did anticipate Lydia attempting to reel Walt back in. When Walt began to walk away from Hank, I knew he wouldn't just let it go, but I thought he would be more coy about it. Walt just threatened Hank in full Heisenberg mode.

The Star Trek references were awesome and I think it was intentional that Beaver was screwing up his facts.

The opening sequence was quite revealing. At this point, the house is dilapidated and Heisenberg is written on the wall. A significant amount of time would have to pass for a house to be in that bad of shape. I'm thinking maybe a year or two. Obviously the cat is out of the bag. I almost wonder if Walt has faked his death at that point.

Jesse, well, I knew he was growing a conscious and obviously, he does not believe Walt. I'm glad they cut to the chase and we'll see things move along pretty quickly, I believe.

It reminded me of the season 7 premiere of Dexter in that respect.
