  • I think Cartire writes for Showtime. Yeck. The Aryans being the target of that M60 makes plenty of sense, and if that happens in the final episode or so, that doesn't make the whole arc of this show about the Aryans.

    And I don't see how you think Hank's death doesn't bother him considering he was willing to give up every last cent of his money to save Hank. Even if that's not specifically for Hank, it'd be because he knows Hank's death means it's truly over. There's no going back, no real chance at salvaging his family, no chance of being successful in his mission. You're putting too much emphasis on the "final showdown", which is why you think it has to be Jesse. The final showdown is an aside, it's a footnote at the end of the arc of a man who ended before he ever bought a gun in a trunk of a car. Jesse will certainly play an important role, more important the Aryans (certainly in the grand scheme of things), but I think you're jumping to conclusions. Like I said, if Jesse suddenly is willing to kill innocents (even if its out of revenge) then that's not the Jesse we ever knew. His sudden change will be the lazy writing.

    Except I completely figured out what was bothering me finally. This whole time, I couldnt figure out why he was threatening Skylar, and implicating himself over the phone about everything he had done, when he knew the cops were there. Then it dawns on me, he wants the cops to think shes entirely innocent and was being threatened the whole time.

    Heres where this all makes sense. He is starting fresh. He took sauls guy, he gave the baby back, he made sure the cops didnt blame any of this on skylar, and now hes starting a new life. He wouldnt do that if he wanted revenge on the Aryans. Im telling you guys. He wouldnt confess to murder, and a drug empire over the phone to the cops if he wanted to get revenge.

    And the jesse thing is not a sudden change. You guys are crazy. His whole character has been drastically changed over the entire series. He has been put through so much torture by Walt (and walt confessing that he saw his gf die was the last straw) that he wants the revenge pure and simple.

    I mean for god sake, he was about to burn the whole house down out of such an intense rage.

    Im not saying he kills the family necessarily. But he will threaten them. IT will be the only way to get Walt to come back.

    I cant believe you guys want the show to end with nobody Aryans. Jesse will escape through either tuco explosives or the mustard gas he was taught in season 1. Then he will want to find Walt.

  • You could have read my post from Sunday night and realized that Walt was getting Skyler off the hook then.

    You entirely miss the point. The Aryans are not what the ending will be about. They are a plot device, it's not going to be a question of UNCLE JACK VS. WALT WHO WILL WIN BATTLE FIGHT!!!! They are a catalyst, a reason for things to get to another point. If you think that M60 is for Jesse Pinkman, then I just don't know what to say to you.

    None of your rambling amounts to a logical conclusion. You might even end up being correct, but absolving Skyler of guilt has zero to do with whether or not he wants to get revenge a year from then. He's clearly resigned himself to having lost his family, his empire, his fortune, and so on. So now what? He's going to be on the lam, living off the last barrel of money that all of this was for. Walt is a man that stews in his own rage. Look at Grey Matter. Maybe more harm befalls his family, maybe they move on, either way, he's lost them, he's lost his attempt to "protect" and "provide" for them. It's all been for nothing. How will that sit with an egomaniac like Walt? Again, look at the grudge he has over Grey Matter. The Aryans aren't really the villains, they are an aside, Walt is the villain, he is the reason for all of the harm, bad, pain, and misery that has come to his and everyone he cares about's doorstep. He's not going to see it that way, though. He's a petty man who will be coming to the end of his rope, and I can see him viewing the Aryans and Jesse as the reasons for why he lost his family, his empire, his money, etc. (They wouldn't listen/they killed Hank...he ratted...and so on). So when his time is about up and he finds out that the Aryans didn't do the one thing they promised him in the end (kill the man he desperately wanted dead and blamed the most for this), how could you not see Walt coming back to make sure he comes out victorious? "I won." That's how Walt reflect on his feud with Gus. He needs to write the ending, Heisenberg needs to be in control.

    Jesse has been on a downward spiral ever since he met Walt. At no point has he reached anything close to being willing to kill innocent people.

    Walt will be a man who always has to have "the last word" with literally nothing left to lose, no time left, and an axe to grind. I'm not even convinced his family is still in Albuquerque, what would be left for them there?

    Again, maybe it turns out your way, but it'd be a huge leap for Pinkman in a small amount of time to go from essentially the show's moral center in Walt's dark world to what...Walt 2.0? Yeah, that wouldn't be cliched. Breaking Bad's writers don't start with a conclusion and work their way there, they make logical steps, box themselves and their characters into corners, and then figure out how the situation would work out. I think the M60 is for the Aryans(and Jesse at that point), I think he wants to waste them all, but I don't think that's going to be the heart of the next two episodes.

    Except why would he come back? He has 6 months to live. His family is off the hook. He's got 11 million dollars. But his family isnt gonna be able to get anything now. Not with the situation they are in. Walt admitting that he killed Hank. They wont take any of that money anyway. He's got 6 months to live.

    What would he come back for if its not to save his family?

    And who would be threatening his family? Wont be the Aryans. They're way smarter then that. They would have no reason to do that. They have everything they need. Walts not coming back for Jesse. You dont look a guy in the eyes (who you have just labled a rat) and tell them you killed their gf just to piss them off. He has no love for Jesse anymore.

    Jesse loaths walt. Is smart enough (with walts training) to escape by killing the aryans making some chemical shit.

    He is the only truly logical choice. He has to be a threat to the family. Like I said, he might just threaten it enough to get Walts attention some how. But it would have to be elaborate, because Walt would have to find out about it. Maybe Saul as a medium, but Saul has already mentioned, that once you go with this guy, your gone, out of the loop. They would never speak again.

    But dont be surprised if the message has to get to Walt in a very loud way.

    Oh, and the M60? I do not think is just for Jesse. But I dont think Jesse is setting up a friendly boxing match to the death either. Walt is prepared for something.

  • How long does Walt have to live in the flash forward? What if he has a week?

    You're making big jumps in logic without knowing the circumstances. You only accept that Walt's family must be being threatened when there are other ways to get from point A to point B, some which make more sense of what we've seen (that gun, for one). There's not only one logical choice. Your path might end up being one that is gotten to logically, but again, Jesse's jump in character in two episodes would be drastic and simplistic in contrast to Walt's slow evolution to being that irredeemable. Jesse becomes Walt because he's mad at Walt for being Walt? It just gets circular and bland.

    I dont see this jump you keep seeing between the characters. Jesse is no longer this innocent caring boy. Hes a mental case who has seen death and wanted out forever. He has lost loved ones and committed murder himself. something he struggled crazily with. Now, he finds out the person who poisoned the boy he loved. Let his girl he loved die. He, himself, was left to die by men Walt paid to kill him with. They beat him crazily then treat him as a slave.

    And somehow, its gonna be outta character for Jesse to want to threaten Walts family (btw, Jesse knows Skylar helps with the business) as a means of finding Walt?

    The jump is so small at this point, its a pebble on the sidewalk. You just walk right over it.

  • You're free to see it that way. I just think it'd be a cheap way to get there, though. I don't think a "I'm coming back to save my family!" hostage/threat situation is befitting the level of quality we have come to expect. I don't see it from Jesse, and it'd seem almost like backtracking from where we already are. I guess if they go that way, I'll trust that they can do it well, it's bad on paper, though.

    Please tell me your Aryan Catalyst story. Because you keep saying this is all bad on paper, even though this all makes sense.

    Why does Walt comeback? For revenge against the Aryans? For Hanks death? To save Jesse? To take back his money?

    I read walt comes back, because hes pissed of that Jesse isnt dead. And M60 to kill all the Aryans that didnt do their job.

    So because he cant provide or protect his family anymore, hes super pissed off, because of his ego. He is going to sacrifice going back there, where his family is absolved, and he is outta of their lives, because of his ego, because Jesse isnt dead.

    This is so far out of Walts character, you need a rocket to make that jump.

    And you think my interpretation of jesse, is him jumping to far out of character.

    Cause Mike wouldnt give up the 9 names of his crew. They fight about it and both reach for a gun. Walt is just faster. Walt does try to make amends after the fact before Mike is dies.

    And what does killing Mike do? It doesn't get him the 9 names. The point is Walt felt belittled, disrespected, talked down to, as he always was by Mike, and he snapped. When he sat in the car after Mike refused, you saw him boil with rage and snap. It's happened before, it'll happen again. Walt has to be on top and in control. You seem to only see plot points and rational actors, not characters with depth. When I said the writers find logical ways out after writing themselves into a corner, I didn't say that all of the characters act logically, I meant that the actions taken make sense given the characters and the circumstances, and that they are reactions, not contrivances leading to a predetermined point.

    And yet you seem to not be able to see how Jesse's character can not develop any of these tendecies. Hes an angel to you for some reason.

    If you cant admit that what jesse has been through can make him snap as well, then dont expect me to delve into your psychological diagnosis of Walt.

  • Walt's traits have been underneath the whole time, rewatch the show and you'll see tinges of Heisenberg early on. Jesse has never shown anything like that. If you can't see the miles of distance between the guy broken apart by the killing of that kid in the desert vs. the guy who whistled while he worked, I'm sorry you aren't getting everything you can out of a great show.

    I guess I just dont posses your amazing ability to dissect the characters. Im surprised you waste your time here instead of making it big down in Hollywood.

    Or maybe your viewing experience differs from mine, and I guess in your eyes, means that I am just lesser. If only I could enjoy it to your elitist levels. That would be the dream.

    Its all the basic chemical elements, none of the Sudafed crap. But you don't get measurements or cook times. So no, not really.

    Hell no, but listening to a couple friends of mine discussing that show, it almost sounds like they do. To be completely honest, I have never watched it. I've got other shows I watch like Dexter, BW Empire, and Ray Donovan.

    Am I really missing some good drama?

    .....

    I love BW. Dexter was pretty good until Lithgow was gone. Havent seen Ray Donovan, but from the promos, I can make a bold assumption.

    They cant lay a finger on BB.

    I feel like Jesse deserves some form of redemption since he's been literally at rock bottom for 3-4ish months between the last two episodes on top of depression for the past 1.5 seasons, but BB is so dark that I won't be surprised if nothing good happens to him. Killing Andrea makes me think Jesse 'should' get revenge on Todd but who knows. How cold was that btw? "Nothing personal." Amazing acting on Aaron Paul's part in the car.

    I now think the ricin is at least intended for Gretchen and Elliot in the foreshadowing. As far as the M60 goes, my guess is he plans on going in guns blazing but it won't end well. He has no reason to live now that his family doesn't want him and has no need for the 11 million he has to himself. Heisenberg is coming back for one last round.

  • 1 more episode to go, and looks like Gray Matter is back on Walt's mind.... I've had a feeling for awhile that Gray Matter is an important part of the show and Walt's motivation, the seed that created Heisenberg.

    -Why did Walt leave Gretchen on a family vacation then sell out to her and Elliott? This has never been explained.
    -Walt has stated that they stole all his ideas, why did he leave all his research behind?

    Now they are downplaying him as a founder on TV? Whatever happened with Gretchen, plus him losing his kids 'birth right', now this latest humiliation?

    Heisenberg is coming for you Gretchen and Elliott.

    Ill give you a hint. Think of Tuco...... Jesse has been trained by the great Heisenberg. Look into your heart, you know this to be true... :stirthepot:

  • I was hoping for a final YA BITCH as he drove through the gate but regardless that was an awesome finale. Wrapped everything up perfectly and even though all their lives are forever messed up by being associated with Walt, the ending felt 'happy'. I don't think I would have liked it as much if Jesse killed Walt; the subtle nod as he is about to drive away knowing Walt will be dead within the hour was perfect. Man am I gonna miss this show..... Walking Dead writers take note of how to tell a story.

    Supposedly Vince Gilligan will be working on a CBS cop drama that he wrote for them back in 2002 with the creator of House as his next project. He won't be the showrunner though so I don't know if I would totally call it his next project. I know 'Better Call Saul' got a go ahead as well but I don't think he is taking the lead on that either. Hopefully whatever comes next keeps the same writing/directing staff.

    It's like when you're nearing the end of a really good book, you know the end is coming... but you don't want it to. Then you're sad it's over, but exhilarated that it was such a great story!

    What a ride!

    Thank you Breaking Bad.

  • What a great show. The finale was perfect in my opinion. Loved that they made it all about Walt too.

    What does everyone think of the spin off "Better Call Saul"? Will you tune in?

    I'll try it, shows get a 1 episode minimum with me unless I've heard crazy good things about it, then it gets 3. Supposedly its suppose to be a comedy.

    I liked Saul a lot as a secondary character so I'll check it out. He added some nice comedic relief in otherwise tense episodes and it was never corny. Not sure how well his schtick will hold up as the main focus though. It will be a lot of the same writers from BB from what I hear so that's promising.
