      WTF is Walt going to do with an M60??

      How far in the future was the beginning of the show? Is this after the vacuum repairman helps him out?
      What is this vacuum repairman that you speak of? My mind is drawing a blank here.

      Also when mike was leaving the police station after breaking them in did he peel out (thus leaving tread). I need to watch it again to be sure...

      Edit: and can we also infer that Walt is now divorced? Yes, he could have run out on his birthday to make a quick gun deal, but why do the bacon thing if not to remind you of the family you formerly had?
      Gentlemen, you had my curiosity. But now you have my attention.

      He's an eraser... New ID, new docs, new life. It's what Walt was scrambling around for and collecting money for in one of the last episodes of season four.

      Bryan Cranston has hinted that the series may continue after the season 5 finale, stating "Vince (Gilligan) feels that now we have too much story. We could actually go beyond those 16 episodes. It's not far-fetched. I wouldn't mind visiting that possibility. And this is coming from a guy who doesn't know anything of how the show's going to end. If it doesn't end up in a total apocalypse, who knows? Maybe we could revisit Walter White a year down the road and see where his life has gone. If he's still alive, that is."[

      Walt's back!

      Regarding leaving the truck behind at the prison yard, I agree, in reality, that is probably not the smartest thing to do, however Walt's Walt...or should I say, Walt's Heisenberg...he's got it all under control. If he's going to leave the truck, he's definitely made sure there are no fingerprints or evidence that can lead back to them or the junkyard.

      I read that Gilligan says BB is done, but he "likes the idea" of a Saul Goodman spinoff. Maybe even a prequel.

      Maybe someone can answer this for me. Why was jesse crying to walt for? I missed the beginning, all i saw was him finding drugs? And then breaking down.

      Explain... Go!

      So Jesse was crying because he felt really upset about blaming Walt for poisoning Brock, pointing a gun at his head, stealing the poisoned cigarette and then almost killing Walt. He feels like Walt's actually a good guy, he (Jesse) was totally wrong and now he blames himself for being horrible for (rightly) blaming Walt for everything that happened which we all know was actually a correct assumption.

      Skyler is definitely creeped out about Walter. If Walter is destined to go down at the end of the series, then I believe it is Skyler who brings Walter down. Not directly, but most likely lead the DEA to Walter.

      The opening scene was great...

      A friend from high school/collge is a chemical engineer - he works for a salad dressing company, so I found that part hysterical.

      Can you really kill yourself with an AED? I've been trained on using such a device and IIRC it won't work unless the pads sense a certain rhythm.

      He put one pad on his shoulder and the bare lead into his mouth. Not sure if it would read the pulse without going across the body. I'll ask about that in my emergency response team class next month.

      That's an interesting theory. The repulsion is there although it did not begin when she found out he was the drug business. Their marriage in many ways ended before season one was over.
      For many reasons they live together again, their cover and their children being the two biggest ones.
      Might even have a Goodfellas ending, "as long as I don't have to live with him" or however Liota's wife's character put it.
      Great season, and great discussing it with intelligent fans.

      Great episode! I liked how Hank's boss mentioned that Gus was there, right under his nose and he failed to see it. Then the camera pans to Hank.

      I'm also glad we haven't seen much of Marie this season. Her stories were probably the weakest ones in the show. They need to build and resolve the Skylar issue somehow. I was thinking that Walt & Jesse end up cooking in the car wash. I mean, steam, machines, high electricity consumption, y'know? And then maybe Skylar gets into it and makes it a "family affair" once again.

      Glad to see Mike's on board!

      I think they whole car wash might of been foreshadowing from the beginning. With the electricity consumption and industrial chemicals in. Plus, send in a van for a wash, send it out with product.
      With Mike, there's going to be friction. He's only on board as the money he had set up for his grand daughter is all gone. This may include whatever money he had for himself.

      I'd have to go back and re-watch the episode closer to see what exactly he was using. If it truly was an AED, then no it wouldn't shock unless it detects a v-fib or v-tach rhythm in the heart. I believe putting the bare lead in the mouth was simply to ensure the shock was sent through the head, specifically the brain.

      Now a defib would be different, but those aren't just planted around offices/building for a lay-person to use. AEDs are pretty much impossible to hurt or kill someone on accident or on purpose since the trigger for the shock is based on a defined rhythm.

      Definitely an AED. Don't care how realistic. It was a great scene...creative license earned by Vince and Co.
      Personal responsibility, a lost art.
