Countdown to Breaking Bad!!! - Page 6

Yeah, Hank is too developed a character and is the Captain Ahab to Walt's Moby Dick to die any time soon. Hank's also the other half of the dichotomy of the whole manufacturing and selling of meth in this show.

My prediction is that the cousins will not be around for the next season.

In my estimation, Hank is actually more important than is Jesse.

Don't bring an axe to a gunfight?

yeah, there's no way hank is getting written off, atleast not this season. I'll be glad to see those two jackass cousins get what's coming to them

that's what thought too but then Gus had no reason to let the cousins get Hank instead. Now they're satisfied with that meaning Gus values Walt. Still though the kinds if questions the assisstant was askng Walt seemed like he was eager to learn his formula so I imagine that's the way it's gonna go anyways.

the pacing of this show is fascinating....the last few episodes have been very character focused, not a lot going on on the surface, just things unfolding, motivations surfacing and so on, then this week's episode...BAM....wall to wall action. Hacked up cops, new apartments, new 'job', new characters, death warrants, hacked up vehicles, faked-out-hospital dashes, a jam-packed plot advancement episode. Very interesting.

Gus only wants Walt for three months. Does that mean Gus doesn't want to sell this extremely valuable product after that? Of course not. Gus DOES want his man to learn Walt's formula, and then I'm sure Gus wants Walt out of the picture. Why? To sever himself from Walt and Jesse's mistakes of the past. The longer Walt is around, the more likely the DEA could resume their investigation and track him down. Gus wants no part of that.

Very interesting.

Yup, that's what I predicted a couple of weeks ago. I think that's one of the most brilliant things about this show.

Am I naive in thinking Gus is a man of honor when it comes to Walt and ultimately will not let any harm come to him? I also think that the tenacity and cunning of Hank will lead to him making Tuco's cousins become a one-season wonder.

I think that's precisely why they cast the actor they did: he is slight of build and has a very trustworty, nonthreatening, and sympathetic face. He's meant to throw us off. But I think he really will either kill Walt or allow harm to come to him once his objectives have been reached. And I'm sure they won't get rid of Hank. Maybe Hank taking down the cousins will set up something between their cartel and the DEA, thus throwing yet more conflict into the mix surrounding Walt.

The way they portrayed it was that Gus gives them Hank not only to appease them but also to get his incessant probing out of Walt's way (something, of course, Walt would never agree with). This assuming that Gus was in fact the source behind Walt's call, not just Saul.


I'm still waiting for someone to tell the cousin's, if they didn't already know it, that Tuco was a fucking nutjob whose death could only benefit everyone. I certainly don't expect Gus to care, given his policy of not working with users.

I'm sure they do. He was their cousin after all.

That would be the end of the series then right?
