Speaking of Talking Bad, Chris Hardwick looks like Aaron Paul.

Re: Breaking Bad Final Half Season

Well, somehow I forgot today was Sunday( alcohol), but I just caught the rerun. Old Yeller. I love the humor, but I don't think Walt is going after Jesse, I think he's going after Hank. I don't think Jesse told Hank about Gale because that is murder, no matter how you slice it. Hank just can't let it slide and now that Gomez is in on it, I just don't see it. I see Walt coming up with some other, sinister, plan.

It's interesting seeing Skyler transform. It seems like she is breaking bad as well, but for some other reason, maybe the money?

Sounds like he did. Hank referred to him as a murderer when he was talking to Gomez.

Hmm, I didn't catch that. Here's the thing, if Hank gives Jesse a deal, would the DA overlook murder to get Walt, I'm not convinced of that.

Maybe, but it seems to go deeper than that.

Re: Breaking Bad Final Half Season

There was a moment in Talking Bad where I was sure that as Betsy was leaning to one side that she was going to put her hand on RJ's leg, but then she course corrected... And missed him by a couple inches.

It's not an impossible pairing?

Re: Breaking Bad Final Half Season

I really should watch that.

Now I don't think it was as good an episode as the last few have been, but I loved Walt slowly exploring his house at the start. Very tense. I also liked how they showed things from Walt's perspective first, before flipping to Jesse's. It was nicely done and kept me guessing.

I somehow felt bad for Walt when Jesse mistakenly thought he was going to have him killed. Any hope Walt had for reconciliation is off now.

Re: Breaking Bad Final Half Season

What plan do you think Jesse came up with?

I believe he's going to tell Walt jr. about his dad because that would rock Heisenberg to the core.. with everything he did he always made sure that his family is safe and didn't know (Skylar just broke through the ruse).

Taking away Jr. in a kind of way could be devastating to Walter without having to fire any shots because his family is the only thing left he cares about.

Additionally Marie talking about this poison also made me sit up and take a note.. i feel this may become important because it is a very cruel poison on the hands of someone who wants to torture and see the other suffer.

It's only bad to poison other people.

Walt is a monster.

Re: Breaking Bad Final Half Season

If Jesse told Walt about the 12 year old on the dirt bike he certainly told him about Gale.

Skyler's still holding on to the hope that when Walt dies, everything will go away and she can be a regular happy family with her kids again. She knows at this point if Walt gets caught that she will go to prison too and her kids' lives will be destroyed, and she's willing to do anything to avoid that fate.

Nah, she's just breaking, just like everyone else is or will be. They're all broken & dealing with it in the only paltry way their characters can. Marie's little scene with the therapist was a perfect example. They want out of the quagmire, all of them, except Walt. Walt wants to control all of them

I think the greatest thing about this season is how they are masterfully depicting the art of manipulation. "Walt is a dismally unbelievable liar". "He doesn't want to hurt anyone" "Walt's afraid", "Walt cares", "Walt's reluctant" "He's in over his head". "It's Skylar, or Jesse or Saul, or Hank who have exacerbated the situation, not Walt"

The most masterful manipulators are the ones that can orchestrate it so that the people around them think THEY are the ones in control or coming up with the plans. Walt's scene in the hotel with Skylar is textbook. Walt's such a fantastic manipulator, he's got real people duped, people sitting on a couch watching him

The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist.

Re: Breaking Bad Final Half Season

I continue to be in awe how effortlessly Walter tells ridiculous lies like they're everyday facts. And people believe him (well, Skylar didn't this time, but still).

With the type music they had playing during the cold opening, I felt like I was watching Apocalypse Now. Maybe that's just me.

The only thing I didn't like about this episode was not seeing Gomez's reacation about finding out the truth about Walter. I've been waiting for that moment all season.

Re: Breaking Bad Final Half Season

The weakest link in the season so far but still a lot of fun. I know Jesse wasn't thinking straight but I would think he would have liked a deal before admitting to murder.

I think he may want to be punished. Or he just wants Walt to pay so badly he doesn't care if it means he will do time too
