I am pumped!
I am looking forward to tonight's BB, but I was quite unimpressed how it ended last season. Long story short:
1. Walt would have NEVER kept anything from Gail. No notebook, pix and especially a book of poetry.
2. When you visit a friends or family members house, how many of you do your business in the MASTER bathroom?! I never have in my life (unless if they had just 1 bathroom). This was just lazy/stupid writing by Gilligan or whomever. And Hank is some "bright DEA agent," apparently not noticing that his brother-in-law is unemployed from teaching, he's a great chemist, there happens this new high powered blue meth in and around town, he bought a car wash(!!!), and he seems to be buying things like crazy. No red flags for Hank?? Really? And I've likely forgotten other clues.** What was "Hank finds out about Walt" option #2 ? Should have gone with that one, it couldn't have been any worse.
** oh yeah, Hank knows that Walt hangs out with a known pot dealer/user

That, to me, was probably the laziest excuse for being able to perpetuate the myth that prevented Hank from truly seeing who Walt really is. But for a show with such incredible writing as this show has, it's an incredibly minor quibble, and hasn't prevented me from enjoying the show in any way. And to be fair, as unbelievable as the majority of the overall concept of Hank not seeing Walt's true identity, they are trying to make the exact point that bugs you as it is - Hank is SO CLOSE to Walt, that even some of the most obvious signs are right in front of him, but he either refuses to see them, or blatantly disregards them because he simply can't make the connection that someone he knows so well could ever be capable of such evil.
