I agree for the most part although episodes 3 and 5 seemed to drag on way too long.
Anybody watching Breaking Bad on AMC? - Page 8
Well put, this has been real quality stuff. AMC has been on quite a run with their original programming. I was reading that their chief Ed Carroll grew up a hardcore tv fan and wanted to help produce shows he always wanted to see.
Aww, the first word (last episode) that came to mind was noob! Maybe Gus didn't actually see him, but c'mon! All that hard work and Walt peeks over the top of a building in plain view with no cover? In his defense though, I suppose his time as a one man team was severely limited to set that all up. And I don't find it hard to believe that Gus acted that way. You would have to be greatly paranoid or experienced, but that comes as no surprise.
Is it just one more left this season now?
I found myself hoping Gus would get in the car. That he didn't struck me as wildly unbelievable. I mean come on, what could possibly have happened to cause him to pause and look around like that? There had better be a good explanation in the next episode, or something else to majorly distract me from this "twist," or I'll have to nudge this show down to a 9.5/10.
Not because I don't like the character or Esposito's performance (both are stellar), I just can't fathom how it would have gone down that way. Seems cheap to me. Anyone feel differently?
He was away from his car for a while. With his power I would think one of his bodyguards was watching his car while he was gone.
Well you can believe whatever you want but 16 final episodes is the end.
I just hope it's not split up as a 8 and 8 season since it's going to be all made at the same time.
At one time talks were about just 5-6 more episodes.

I'm a bit clueless as to where the show will go from here. Well, Pinkman is still naive - first about Jane and now about the poisoning. And Hank is still naive about Walt. Plus the gun was emphasized. So maybe more of that will come into play next year. Other than that, I found it to be a fantastic season finale. I loved the chickenman's exit with the nice gruesome touch. This viewer will miss Gus however. He was such a grand foil.
As far as I'm concerned, Walt dying at the hands of Jesse at the end of the series would be such a fitting end. He was indirectly responsible for Jesse's old girlfriend's death and now he's directly responsible for endangering the life of Jesse's new girlfriend's son. Those last two episodes showed that Walt will put anyone in harm's way to get what he wants. Walt is just off the hook at this point. Ego. Evil. Bad. Breaking Bad.
Count me along with those who will miss Gus. Such a great character. Awards have to be given to Giancarlo Esposito for portraying that.
This show is just unreal at how frightening, terrorizing and intense parts of it can be.
