Mike was never family though (not even in the same way he cares for Jessie), he also knows that if he kills Hanks he pretty much loses everything. He may not go to jail, but Skyler (and the kids) will be gone.
He does pause on his fractured reflection. It's suppose to mirror what has happened to his life/character, like the giant Heisenberg written among the ruins of his house parallels the Ozymandias poem promo (his mighty empire has crumbled).
He's the same age as the actor who played the first Doctor was when he originally played the role. Will be a nice change of pace having an older Doctor. A lot of people complaining online that it's not a female Doctor or a non-white Doctor, but Capaldi seems like a good fit to me.
The guard's storyline was definitely the weakest thing this season. The previous episode was so strong that it really made it difficult for this one to follow it up and seem anything but kind of ordinary. At least the twist was not unnecessarily drawn out, seems like they are really learning from the previous seasons' failures.
It's not that it's a handjob, it's her total level of disinterest as a wife during it and that there is a lack of redeeming qualities shown by her in the episode. Yes Walt is portrayed as a weak man, but we feel pity for him (because he has cancer) and we see moments of him acting in ways more positively where we actually root for him. Skylar is just painted as part of the pitiful life he is breaking away from, the show just doesn't give us anything positive to latch...
I really think that it is this moment in the first episode that made people dislike her right away, while Walt is painted much more sympathetically. I'm not sure people would feel the same way if she was introduced in a much more likable way, a lot of her issues with Walt later on are justifiable and make sense.
I don't know, I could see a lot of the events from MOS leading directly into this next movie, it also helps to firmly place it in the MOS universe and further distance it from the Nolan movies. On the other hand, I was kind of hoping all the death and destruction from MOS would lead into the Superman/Luther relationship, but I could see them doing that with Superman/Batman instead, but that seems less satisfying to me.
