I thought it was unbearably tense. Like I did my whole pacing the room and wringing my hands thing which I haven't done since the Lilly of the Valley incident.

Beginning was a mindfuck. The middle was ok, not too sure about Jessie's actions but Aaron Paul has become quite a superb actor.

And that last scen was one I've been waiting for and it was virtually flawless.

I'll go into specifics when I am off my mobile but I wonder if Walter was lying even in that last scene.

TREAD LIGHTLY.

Thinking about it, he has to be lying.

Unless he bought a wig and a beard along with that machine gun.

He could just go off the chemo, no? He clearly seems to be in endgame mode.

Great episode. I have to say I didn't expect

 
Hank and Walt getting to it that soon; I thought Hank was going to be collecting evidence and reaching Jesse for the first couple of episodes, so the final scene was a very pleasant surprise.

The one thing I'm not too sure of is Jesse. Now, it is not unreasonable for him to act this way, but the thing is, thanks to the still awkward 2x8 setup, there was no build-up to his depression and using in Gliding Over All. He was feeling down but he looked much better in his final scene before the break than now.

And I just love the eeriness of that first scene. The Heisenberg graffiti was a great touch.

The greatest use of a remote control garage door opener in the history of the known universe.

Or he could have recovered by that point and gone off the chemo. We have no idea how distant the future timeline is from the present timeline (or do we? I haven't watched that cold open since the season 5 premiere). It is entirely possible that he is wearing a wig, but in this case I'm not sure he's lying. The vomiting was something we haven't seen from Walt since the beginning. He could be vomiting out of sheer terror, but Walt has become such a sociopath that I doubt anything would tear him up that badly.

I thought it was a great episode, better than most of the season's first half.

We do know the future timeline. It's approximately 9 months away from the events that had happened in this episode; Walt's 52nd birthday.

He is very likely still suffering from cancer at that point - he is coughing and taking pills. His 6-month prognosis was off, but maybe he was just full of shit like he always is in order to gain Hank's sympathy.

I don't think he's lying. In addition to the vomiting and pills that we saw in this episode, we also saw him actually getting the chemo treatment. Remember the scene where he's sitting in a chair getting the IV drip.

It's possible that he's just lying about the timeline. He may not have only 6 months to live.

This seems as likely as anything else:

That is what the flash-forwards are heavily implying since he does have plenty of hair.

He even vomits into a toilet like Gus now, taking out a washcloth to lay his knees on.

He reminded me of Gus when he was at the car wash and Lydia was there, it was reminiscent of when Hank took Walt to Los Pollos Hermanos and Gus would smile at Walt and take his order.

Someone mentioned Jesse's depression, im not entirely sure he makes it out alive given his mental state.

Which makes all of Gus' frustration at Walt trying to equate himself to him all the more ironic; he actually has become Gus, in that respect.

Jesse'll either end up dead, get caught by Hank/The DEA (not as likely), or use that identity-wiping rip-cord that Saul offered Walt in the midst of the Gus drama in "Crawl Space." I can see that happening given Jesse's devil-may-care attitude he has toward any material possessions or money nowadays, but I doubt his rampant guilt will allow him to do that at this point in time.

Damn, I have no idea what'll happen but I wouldn't be surprised if Jesse pulls a Hamlet and offs Walt/his Claudius.
