BAHAHAHA Skyler with Ted and the auditor. Every week I think she can not get any more awesome and then she goes and outdoes herself every time.

I like how she is following the moral same path into the wilderness as Walter into badness. Although she can blame Walter for forcing her on to the path, she can no longer claim moral high ground.

I can feel a noose tightening around everyone.

Gus was pretty spectacular, walking out into the sniper fire.

And Jesse continues to twist in the wind.

Every time I watch Breaking Bad, once the closing credits roll, I let out this giant sigh that feels like I've been holding my breath for the entire episode.

Love Mike, because what's not to love? Gus scares the shiitake out of me. I looked up Giancarlo Esposito on Wikipedia and found out that he is Danish! I can never quite put my finger on his accent.

Also, I continue to be 1,000% in love with Jesse. I just want to put him in my pocket and tell him everything's gonna be okay (even though I know it isn't). Aaron Paul is such a brilliant actor. He looks so beaten down and world-weary. His last line in the episode sent chills up my spine.

In real life he just speaks with an American accent. His accent for Gus is odd, though.

Nice interview with Aaron Paul/Jesse on Fresh Air:
http://www.npr.org/tablet/#story/?url=/ ... t-dead-yet
He sounds like a really sweet guy.

Also with creator Vince Gilligan
http://www.npr.org/tablet/#story/?url=/ ... and-morals

And man, wasn't yesterday's episode a kick in the pants? I loved the way Jesse channeled Walter when he was getting set up and taking control in the Mexican drug lab. Go Jesse!

And yeah...Mike...and Gus. Gus never forgets. (and I can't believe that he is Danish!)
I wonder what will happen with the old grandpa in the nursing home?

Totally loved the way Jesse took control in the Mexican drug lab. I felt a little proud. It was definitely a turning point for Jesse-- the lab, then he actually manages to fire back during a shoot out, and finally gets in the driver's seat to drive Mike and Gus to safety. I liked bringing it all home again with poison, too. Perfect Breaking Bad irony that Gus is the one who ends up using the poison effectively, after all of Walter and Jesse's silly ricin-plotting.

Me too! My girlfriends and I have Breaking Bad night every Thursday, and we watch older episodes (we're ALMOST caught up!), but by the end of the episode, we're all like, "Whew...." And then we can all breathe. We were following episodes with a recorded episode of the latest season of True Blood each week....you know, to lighten the mood. But now that True Blood is over, there will be no relief from the Breaking Bad madness.

Quoted for the truth. The end was so gangster.
The only good thing about this show ending for the season is the subsequent start of The Walking Dead.

Ready for tonight's episode in 40 minutes?

I don't know how they're going to top last episode but I wouldn't be surprised if they do.

O.M.G. That was some crazy shitake. The last shot of Walter in the basement sent chills up my spine. I love the irony, and it's perfect that Walter can actually see the irony of what's happening to him.

PLUS he completely brought it on himself. Jesse had plenty of chances in Mexico to kill, or not save, both Gus and Mike. If Walter had thought ahead and kept Jesse as a strong ally, he probably could have convinced Jesse to act in Mexico. He eventually realized that as a cook Jesse was his greatest liability, because he could replace Walter in the lab, but only way too late.

Those last few scenes were so dark and disturbing... I loved it. I was reminded of The Dark Knight, for whatever reason. I suppose it was that laugh.

Did anybody catch Mike the Cleaner's real last name, on those blood samples?

I didn't even think to look. I remember thinking about his name when I saw it listed as Michael though.

I just went back and looked. Michael Ehrmantraut. Google tells me that a guy by that name wrote a philosophy textbook.

Anyway, holy shiitake, the last couple minutes of last night's episode were INTENSE. This season has flown by, and I don't want it to end! (Although I agree with it being bittersweet due to The Walking Dead)

Anyone else bummed that we didn't get to see more of Gus and Jesse's 6 mile walk through the desert? What on earth could they have talked about?

Definitely. Maybe there'll be a flashback to it in the next episode? Also, I thought it was kind of random that they just walked into Hector's nursing home. Was that like on the back to Texas through the desert?

They were already back in ABQ at that point.

Yes, Gus was back into a crisp suit by then.

And, omg. Crazy!

I predict that Mike is going to make a play in the last couple of episodes. He has been shot multiple times this season and I am sure is teatering at a breaking point. If I recall correctly he pointed his gun at Gus when Gus was taking care of Victor, maybe we'll come back to that. Atleast I hope Mike makes a power play.

Walt needs to dole out a few asparagus kickings before the season ends too, go Hisenburgh and blow the shiitake up in a major way.

I think Walt Jr won't live to see season 5.

This show rules my life right now.

I think Gus has to die in order for the show to stretch out one more season. That's not what I want (at all!!), but I think that's what's going to happen. Walt's back is totally against the wall right now, and his days of working for Gus are officially over. If Walt doesn't become the new Gus, I don't know where else the show can go. Of course, the writers are clearly smarter than me, so I'm excited to see what happens. But that's my prediction.

I really enjoyed it too, though I thought Ted's death a little "convenient." I know he's a coward and everything, but that was kinda a cheap and dumb part of the plot IMO. Otherwise I'd have given it a 10!
