I clicked on the spoiler and was like "AW CRAP WHY DID I JUST READ THAT?!?!"

 

Then I realized I'd already viewed the scene in which it occurred.

I'm at a loss how they're going to redeem WW now. Redeem is the wrong word. Help him restore some power is more like it. It would appear Jesse is the key but doesn't that thread seem more and more tenuous? 



Why would you assume that they intend to redeem WW? I always took the point of BB to be watching a once good and decent man go down the rabbit hole. IMO He is beyond redemption.

I see your point and even said redeem was the wrong word. Yet I do think White will find more power some way. If only to create a central conflict for the presumed final season. After all, as pompous and bear handed his actions are, he is the one true intellectual foil for Gus right? Also selfishly I want to see the return of Heisenberg. Much like bed ridden Hank wore on me, or the drug addled Jesse grew tiresome, this all bark, no bite, sniveling Walt has begun to do the same. 

post #96 of 511

I do agree there.. Walt has been all bark, no bite this season and it's been a little painful to watch. I'd like to see him throw a nice punch (figuratively) somehow.

I had not realized that a 5th (16 Episode) season has already been announced. I wish that they would have kept that a secret. Now there's no doubt that WW will continue to survive for at least a while longer. Not knowing is part of the appeal.

 

I feel that ultimately WW has to die. The question is will it be due to Cancer, or Drug Violence, and will it also destroy those around him? Or maybe being caught, convicted and then shanked in prison, or dying a miserable death in a prison infirmary. Since they have let it be known that there are another 16 episodes after this season the question becomes how will it end, not when.

Or maybe he'll be helping Hank roll up the business in exchange for immunity.

post #99 of 511

Personally I think the show started getting a little stale. I mean Season 1 was so amazing... you have this genius teacher who all of a sudden finds out he has cancer then starts cooking meth in an RV.

 

Recently it has all been issues with Walter trying to find a way to get away from Gus. Anyone remember how they used to start the episodes with a flash forward? The plane crash and Walter walking out of Tuco's building with his stash...

 

It has really picked up recently with the flashback of Gus and what happened to his partner... I think what will happen is another cartel arrives and proposes issues for Gus? Maybe Walter heads for Mexico?

 

I think Gus understands the closeness of Walter and Jesse considering what happened to his own partner. He probably views their closeness as a major threat he needs to finish.

post #100 of 511

I don't think another cartel is the way to go this late in the life of the series, else it would have happened already.  Just my opinion, of course.

 

It would seem to me that the roller coaster is headed toward this group becoming the cartel, and the questions to solve between now and Season 5 end involve who will make it there and who won't, who will adapt and who will fail to adapt.

 

I don't know man.  I've also been quite bad at guessing these things.  Very much a suspended disbelief, along-for-the-ride type of viewer.

With that last episode you would think there were only 2 episodes left in the series.

I'm sure whatever twist comes it will be oh yeah this needs it's final season of episodes before it all wraps up.
post #102 of 511

Just 2 more episodes left for the season. Maybe Walt will find some cahoonas.

post #103 of 511

I have begun to wonder whether Gus will make it for next season. He is one crafty son o' gun. It backfired this time though as far as Pinkman is concerned. Jesse is the pendulum of power in the BB universe. The momentum resides wherever his loyalty lies, which of course has never absolutely, completely been against Walt. I still wonder if he will ever discover that Mr. White watched his former love choke.

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?

This season of Breaking Bad is definitely one of the best seasons of TV of any show from the past decade or so. The writing, editing, cinematography, acting, sound... almost everything about the show this season is crazy good. And as of the last several episodes, they've certainly turned ending episodes into an art form.

Crazy good.

I hope Aaron Paul, Giancarlo Esposito and Bryan Cranston all get Emmys/Golden Globes for their work (least excited for Cranston though since he's had three Emmys in a row already; plus, Gus and Jesse have been excellent this season compared to Walt).
