WOW! My only complaint.....it's the season finale! I want more!
No doubt! I didn't see that coming at all and actally yelled out "Holy Chit". Also, good call on your part Clutch about the kid.
Thanks. Now that I think about it, I think it focuses on the poison plant when Walter was spinning the gun on the table. We have slowly watched him transform into a bad-ass. I couldn't believe he would get his feeble little neighbor to unknowingly check the house for a booby trap.
Yeah, it was great watching him turn into a hardened criminal complete with a manipulative personality.
They also never explained what did happen with the ricin. Unless I missed that part? Great finale!
He did - first off, Walt never even had contact with Jesse between the time he knew he still had it and when it was gone. Second, when Jessie gets "frisked" by Hule as Saul's office, you see him stick something in his pocket afterwards. So Saul was helping Walt. Thats why he left so many messages for Jessie to get down there right away. Giving him his money wasnt something that urgent and he could find plenty of ways to do that without him having to come down to his office.
Season 5 speculation?
I think Hank has to find out that Walter is Heisenberg, he has been chasing Heisenberg for too long not to discover the truth. I am not sure if Jesse will ever find out that Walter was behind Jane's death and Brock's poisoning, if he did then it would absolutely be the end of Walt and Jesse's relationship. I believe Walt's cancer is back, he seemed to have been coughing a lot in season 4 and could have lied to his family about his checkup. Gus' death has to have huge consequences, we don't know a whole lot about his backstory but Don Eladio said that "he knows who he really is" so he must be important.
Walter will continue down his path from good to bad and there won't be any going back.
Next to Dexter and HBO's Rome, Breaking Bad is one of my all-time favorite shows!! If you would have told me five years ago that I would be so into shows about a serial killer and a Meth chemist, I'd have laughed.
There are a lot of good pieces left in play for next year:
Walt's gotta keep cooking, now that he's back at square 1 financially. I imagine he'll also get some added motivation from a return of his cancer. The laundry is gone (and the RV, of course), so I think they'll cook in the car wash. Another business that will be ordering lots of chemicals without raising suspicions and staffed with illegals!
I think Ted may be alive, perhaps brain damaged or comatose. The car wash may be a good cook site - but Skylar's already stated that it's not sufficient to launder the amounts of money that Walt's enterprise generates. Perhaps Skylar can start laundering it through control of Beneke Enterprises?
I won't be upset at all if the Lady of the Valley issue never comes up again. I think it's most realistic for Walt to have pulled this one off cleanly than for Jesse to find out somehow that he did it. I'd rather not waste part of the last season with those two bickering as enemies again.
I don't think there's any way they can let Walt survive the show. While I think his cancer will return, I don't think we'll be subjected to his dying of it. Will Hank kill him, perhaps? Hank's got to find out eventually, or his series arc is a bit wasted. I think he'd cover for him (remember Marie's shoplifting? "She needs our understanding and support right now" etc) rather than bring him in. Could Walt convince him to kill him? Could Hank kill him inadvertently, or only find out that Heisenberg was Walt after he rolls over the body?
This show is too good. I can't wait to see how it all ends!
@Great1, in an interview Vince Gilligan said season five will be the final season and will be comprised of 16 episodes.
I believe the cancer will be back, and Hank will be chasing Walt to his death bed. Then he will either lose the trail at the last moment as Walt dies and takes his legacy with him, or Hank finds out and lets it go with the passing of a loved one.
Gus' family may come in at some point as a threat to Walt. He needs a threat of some sort. Hank is definitely in play, but in which way? How 'bout the IRS? I can't wait to see what they come up with!
I love this show!
It will be something natural, tied in to the characters and story. If any series can have a perfect ending, it should be this one.
At this point they've tainted Hank with drug money too, I wouldn't be terribly surprised to have a Reservoir Dogs style three way gun showdown with Hank, Jesse and Walt. Walt and Jesse seem destined to have some sort of ultimate falling out. Hank hasn't been in the mix throughout for no reason either.
I can also see Walt engineering his own death and taking the cowards way out, he has continually made bad decisions throughout the show and ruined everything he's touched, I could see him doing a suicide by cop at the hands of Hank and pushing him totally over the edge into madness in the process for his own selfish reasons to avoid paying a penalty for his sins.
Regardless, I'll be tuned in through the last seconds of the show, Breaking Bad has been masterful thusfar.
I'm just glad the govenor came to her senses and allowed filming in my city again for show, now i get to see Sauls banners and stuff right when i turn up my street, and walts house is a mere two streets away from mine. Show is amazing. Also glad Spartacus returns next month, but without Andy Whitfield it just might not be the same as he nailed that role. May he R.I.P.
Interesting point. I hope they don't do that. Stupid Mad Men taking up all the money.
does anyone know if season 5 had begun shooting yet?
There's no way they're gonna let Walt live happily ever after. After ll that he's done and become, I see nothing but a violent death for him at the end.
