I initially thought the same thing but then remembered that Walt had a limited supply of meth precursor to work with. Once the 1000 gallons were up, he was out.

That would be a rather big coincidence, wouldn't it? Walt just so happens to buy a used book that once belonged to a murder victim that Hank was investigating, that so happens to be addressed to someone with the same initials? Now obviously the book isn't substantial enough evidence to put Walt away, but I think he'll have a hard time explaining how he is in possession of it, and what his relationship to Gale is.

he can explain it away, but that isn't going to help. you could see hank's mind working - the money, the chemistry background, all that stuff. hank has now been focused on this for more than a year, he is obsessed with this, and now he has a possible candidate that makes a lot of sense. this is going to be interesting.

Absolutely. Car wash, 'blackjack', new cars, the watch, and the killer... the 2nd cell phone.

You heard it here first... Hanks keeps it quiet and investigates Walt alone. Walt finds out and takes him out.

Only on a show like Breaking Bad could a scene of a tranquil, happy go lucky family barbecue turn your stomach to knots. My heart was beating out of my chest during that scene. So awesome.

Who knew that Checkhov's Book would be Walt's undoing.

The book cannot be explained away. It's not just the initials: the very same lines of poetry are inscribed in both the book and Gale's lab journal. That right there is search warrant and wire tap material.

Sucks to have a one bathroom house.

They don't -- there's a hallway bathroom. A lot of people are bitching about this, but it's totally in character for Hank to want to use the nicest bathroom ... or maybe he's just a nice guy and didn't want to light up the bathroom everyone else was using.

Really? People are bitching about that? foo.gif
post #1661 of 2875
Yup. Not as many as are bitching about the plot device of the book in the first place, though. I think people are viewing as "the ending" whereas it's more of a way to set things in motion for the final push. That could have easily happened in the 1st episode next quasi-season, but they used it as a cliffhanger instead.

Also people are bitching about the reference to killing Bin Laden ruining the timeline of the show, Someone actually went through and made a list of all the date references in the show, starting with the 2008 expiration date on the Aztek's handicap placard and including things like the 2013 expiration sticker on the license plate of Walt's new car (... and I thought I was pedantic). I feel really sorry for people who let throwaway things like that ruin their enjoyment of the show. Continuity errors are almost unavoidable when you have so many writers, directors, and producers working on a show over so many years.

Well, you see, there are bitter malcontents who haven't taken their meds....

Seriously, I have a really great book called The Nitpicker's Guide to the Next Generatio. in which the author goes through and documents every continuity error etc episode by episode. However, he makes it perfectly clear he's not being critical; it's just for fun. Cool book, actually.

I wouldn't but Walter White would. The amount of don't give a shit that he has developed is off the chart.

Overall, loved the episode. Had everything that makes BB what it is. Almost perfect. Just wish they had not taken the easy route with Walt "getting out" of the business. No way it would be that simple for him. Hopefully when the show returns they expand on that element.

It's not going to be that simple at all. Those boys he made a deal with last episode (they weren't cartel) aren't going to just let him walk away. The reason they didn't just kill him is because he promised to deliver a high yield product that they could sell to a larger market that would result in them making more money than they were making before. They depend on regular shipments to keep their business going. Walt can't just turn off supply without pissing them off in the same way Gus couldn't stop production of his 200lbs a week.

They only know Walt as Heisenberg, but they know Pinkman by name. They will get Pinkman, and torture Pinkman until he gives up Walt's real identity, and then either kill Pinkman or make him cook (since walt already vouched for his skills). Hank is the least of Walt's problems imo.

Not sure if the young blonde dude knows walt by name but he's seen walt drive up in his real car so he could easily know his real identity as well. He probably wouldn't be too happy with Walt's retirement either since he's just starting out and seeing more money than he'd ever dreamed of.

Almost anything could happen next season.

+1. Cooking meth isn't a business you just "retire" from.
