All caught up now in preparation for Monday, our time.

Three little thoughts on the last few episodes...

Many people here criticised the writing in S05E07, with Mike allowing Walt to bring him the bag. I'm fine with that. He was in a crazy state, trying to outrun a heap of cops and thinking of his daughter. Saul flat-out refused, and he cared too much for Jesse. If there was anything to be critical of re Mike's handling of Walt in the last few eps it was tying him to a heater with only a cable tie.

Love the tiniest show of regret on Walt's face when Lydia shakes his hand and says "we're going to make a lot of money together" in S05E08. Just impeccable acting from Bryan Cranston. He managed, in half a second, to convey a pang of regret over agreeing to expand his business, but losing part of the control that he has worked so hard to get, the control that feeds off his ego.

And that Crystal Blue Persuasion montage is sweet.

Completely the opposite. Tying him to a heater was in the moment where every second counted and where there was a high probability of rush decisions being made. In the second example, there were hours of preparation and thinking about many possible permutations that could go wrong - he was well aware that the gun was on the top of that bag, he was more than well aware that Walt is a back-stabbing bastard with whom he had so many disagreements and unbearable tension, and turning his back on him or not pulling a gun on him during their rendezvous, while being absolutely aware that he could have taken that gun, is just improbable to me and a sign of slippery writing. It's the one thing about this show so far I'm really critical about, since it was a very important character and I feel the circumstances leading to his death could have been handled better.

I get where you're coming from in the first instance, I guess I just see his death different to most. Either way, it sucked to lose him.

Hoping we get some Gus flashbacks in the remaining eps.

Besides the picture at the top and byline, you mean? There's been so much written about Breaking Bad this week that contextualization isn't the worst angle to take.

Yes. I read through the first paragraph or two and stopped when I realized I could give a fuck less about all of that BS.

Finished the rewatch on Wednesday, including that bonus scene on the DVD. It's set during the three month montage and confirms a couple of character points that were hinted at in the show:

 
Saul shows up at Jesse's place to tell him about the prison hits. Up until then Jesse was expecting to be arrested at any time and thinking of fleeing. Saul makes it pretty clear that Walt must have killed Mike or else he wouldn't have taken out his 'guys' like that. He then leaves Jesse with a gun (which was a 2 for 1 deal). Also, BOOBIES.


S'gonna be a long day at work with the new episode just waiting for me at home...
