I struggle to see how most of the plot points/story angles in Breaking Bad over the years are unbelievable (in the sense of 'get out of here, what is this bullshit). Audacious, yes. Ambitious, certainly. Dependent on a lot of things falling into place just so, quite so. But not illogical. And fiction is not documentary, nor should it be.

If the criticism is that it does not mirror the actual reality of DEA officers working in New Mexico, USA, and the people they encounter in the line of their investigations... well, that's another matter entirely.

SPECULATION: I think we may get showdown interruptus for Walt v Jesse due to the timely arrival of Evil Matt Damon and his neo-Nazi pals.

And cancer's coming for Walter, too.

That's the 4 horsement of the Apocalypse right there.

Amazing how Walter is now a cancer, and cancer itself.

I agree. That's what I mean with my suspension of disbelief with this show. It's written and carried out so well I don't think about any of that stuff while I'm watching. Sure the next day someone on the internet can go oh please no one can walk around with half their face missing, and then I might go, oh, ok I guess... but was I thinking that at the the time? No, I was going OH MY GOD! I don't see the logical faults that someone might point out later while I'm watching at all.

And as for things conveniently falling into place to make the story more incredible and exciting? Yeah, that's what makes some of the best fictional stories so great! That's what makes you not want to put the book down because you can't wait to see what might happen next.

I loved Walt's confession. Even though it was obvious to me that he was up tp something, that story he put together was not something I expected....yet, at the same time coming from Walt nor surprising at all. Hank, Hank..always couple of steps behind.

I remember in a literature class one of the students complained that "Great Expectations" was so unbelievable, because what were the odds that all of those disparate story lines would come together in the end. Yeesh.

When did the suspension of disbelief bridge snap? Does it matter? No? Oh, okay. Let's all enjoy that HUELL is now a semi-regular.

Damon Lindelof has a few theories.

I may have been wrong about my previous comment. Walt may or may not kill Jesse, but he (Jesse) certainly isn't like a son to Walt.

Huell sleeping in the office waiting room was classic.

Walt's confession was great, Hank's face while watching the confession was great. Im not sure that Hank doesn't kill Walt before this thing is over with.
