I think the last name PINKMAN is very bad news for our Jesse. Pink is not a good colour in BB.

SPOILERS if you're not up to date:

I think Walt has to die to finish the show and I think Jesse will find out about him letting Jane die and poisoning Brock, so maybe then he will die by Jesse's hand?

Its one of the best tv shows ever IMO

I wondered at Walt dismissing out of hand the idea of killing Hank. Though it might have been a step too far for Skyler, and of course now Marie would also have to go now.

I think Jesse will work with Hank. He has nothing to lose, and can't live with the guilt.

I still don't think Walt would kill Jesse, after all they've done, but could see Skyler wanting to eliminate him. She's become pretty ruthless and he's the main loose end.

Can't see Jesse working with Hank unless he finds out about Jane/Brock - something's has to give in the next episode.

Anyway, I think there are loads of great ways to end the show, so will just go with the writers' flow (although if it involves too much Todd/Lydia I'll be disappointed, as am just not interested in them)

That was a very focused episode and covered a short time span - how are they going to get to the flash forward in just 6 episodes??

Loved 'send him to Belize'. Surprised that Walt looked shocked after what he's become. Or is he just getting better at acting? And Lydia is every bit as ruthless. Does she think if she doesn't see it it didn't happen ?

TotemPole Wed 21-Aug-13 17:00:58

This is the best TV show I've seen. For both of these episodes I was glued to the screen and the time just flew by.

The showdown between Walt and Hank was brilliant, the acting was superb.

I'm still rooting for Walt. Even though he's done so many terrible things, I still want him to get away with it. But, I don't want Hank or Marie to get hurt in the process.

I wonder if they'll use Lydia as a scape goat and try to pin everything on her? Will Walt fake his own death? Is that why the neighbour looked so shocked to see him? And why was he going back for the poison?

Cooroo, only 6 more episodes? sad

Apparently there are plans for a spin off programme with Saul. That might fill some of the void BB leaves behind.

TotemPole Mon 26-Aug-13 23:18:16

Has anyone else seen the latest episode yet?

It's great.

StrangerintheNight Tue 27-Aug-13 09:38:45

Hi TotemPole, just watched the latest episode and its really picking up speed now, isn't it? Jesse's sad sack routine was definitely starting to grate, so I'm glad things escalated last night.

Elsiequadrille Tue 27-Aug-13 10:10:49

It was a great episode. And it's not that I want Walt to get away with it (the whole situation), as such. I want to see how he's going to get away with this (because surely he will).

TheFoosa Tue 27-Aug-13 10:39:37

amazing episode, was hooked throughout and devastated that it was over so quickly

TheFoosa Tue 27-Aug-13 10:40:33

I think that there has to be some final showdown between Walt & Jesse

it's all about them really

Patchouli Wed 28-Aug-13 14:39:17

Loved the "confession"! grin

wintertimeisfun Wed 28-Aug-13 16:49:29

OMG. dh and i saw the latest episode. it was fucking brilliant. aaron paul's acting in particular as the completely broken man was jaw dropping. i could barely watch the screen through the whole show. the ending was beyond anything. seriously can't wait until the next episode. had to pause it towards the end though and dd came down and said she felt sick...had to go and sit with her in the loo for about ten minutes...much to dh's annoyance as we had to pause the tv grin

m0nkeynuts Thu 29-Aug-13 17:29:49

RE the theory of Walt taking on characteristic etc. of each person he kills: His jacket in the flashforward does look like Jesse's .... but it also looks like Todd's See here!

proudmum95 Thu 29-Aug-13 23:08:19

AIBU to say that Skylar is the biggest victim of all involved in this show?

Ooh here you all are. I knew there had to be other BB fans here!

Haven't watched today's episode yet, hoping to get to see it tonight, DD's teething interrupted sleep permitting!

I adore Jesse, but can't help feeling he's not going to make it to the end of the series alive. I really hope I'm wrong though. Is he going to find out what really happened to Jane in this episode do you think?

Patchouli Tue 03-Sep-13 20:57:14

God. You watch an episode and think about it for at least the whole of the next day.
What is going to happen?!

StrangerintheNight Tue 03-Sep-13 21:08:29

Yes, Patchouli, I can't cope with just one episode a week. I just feel like I want to get them all out of the way so I can move on with my life.

At least I'm now longer waking at 2 in the morning on a Monday to check out the latest episode, for which I'm very proud of myself.

Spoilers (if that's not too late) : My prediction that Skyler would suggest killing Jesse came true! First time that's ever happened. I think his time has come anyway, he can't outsmart Walter White, can he?

thenightsky Tue 03-Sep-13 22:15:58

I hope Jesse comes out of it alive. Not seen last night's yet as DS forgot to download it for me!

Elsiequadrille Tue 03-Sep-13 22:32:10

I laughed at Saul talking about Old Yeller. Though I'm afraid I was surprised at Skyler making the same suggestion.

Cooroo Tue 03-Sep-13 22:58:41

Skyler, Hank and Saul all advocating murder! Walt was beginning to look like the good guy. Until the end. Is he setting Todd onto Jesse? Or Hank?

Really missing being able to watch lots of episodes end to end. How good is this show???

MirrorballMoon Tue 03-Sep-13 23:32:03

Yes, it's torture having to wait a whole week between episodes now!

The writing was so clever in this one (as always). So many twists and turns and the upper hand keeps on changing! So what do we think is Jesse's plan...?!

Elsiequadrille Tue 03-Sep-13 23:56:41

I don't know. Jesse said something about getting Walt where he really lives.

Maybe something to do with Walt's money or business (the car wash that is).
