Who knows what he was gonna do with that spider? Either tear it's legs off or use it to poison his classmates. The world is a better place without him if you ask me.
    LOL. jd is available for Bar Mitzvah's and children's parties.

Just the subtle little touches like Walt's 'Money Pit' moment when he realizes all the cash is gone...all the flourishes just added up to that one big kaboom. And the old man was fleshed out to the point that you really did get he would blow himself up to get vengeance. The downhill physics of the whole season really culminated with that. This Sundays episode seemed more insincere, because there was no 'ticking clock' in the background. Things are almost too good and they had to manufacture some event to wratchet things up. And it felt forced.
    I agree with your disagreement. Last season's nursing home ending was one of the best season-ending TV shows - ever. In the history of television.

    When Gus walked out of the room and straightened his tie, my wife even yelled at the TV, "NO!" (Although from where he was standing near the wheelchair, chances are he wouldn't have still had his legs, but I was willing to accept what happened just for the pure shock value).

    Last night we watched the train caper and generally enjoyed it. A bit too many things HAD to go just right for it all to happen though (especially the "EXACT" required distance from the road to the train track bridge). And Walt would have never have kept filling the tank, jeopardizing the entire effort, just to get to 1000 gallons (or whatever it was). Like 900 gallons wasn't enough? There's nothing magical about 1000 gallons.

    And the kid at the end? ... seemed a bit tacked on. Like something just HAD to go wrong. A bit like when LOST just started killing off characters just because they thought they needed to.

    I could be wrong but wasn't he waiting for the water he was pumping into the tank to match the total mass of the methylamine they had stolen? That's why they had to be exact, since supposedly the cargo would be weighed and they would notice something. If done correctly they would only notice the dilution and blame the Chinese, not call in the feds.

    As for the kid, I felt it packed a big punch. Much bigger than what it would have had it just been some guy. Sure it's a bit cheap to make it a child but the way it tied in with Jesse and Walt's previous incident with a child I thought made it work.

    And...having read back a few pages, this show hinges on what you find plausible and what you can look past. I guess we all have our limits. Kinda owe Butch19 an apology for saying this might not be the show for him a few back and then railing about particulars. So, sorry man. Anyway, I have come to grips with, what I thought, was a misstep of an episode and I am hoping they get back to setting up strong for the back 8.

    Wow, best episode of the season by far. Exciting all the way through. The barrel scene in the beginning was disturbing and the dinner table scene made me laugh out loud. I thought it was cool how they linked his previous business mistakes to his current situation, I hadn't thought of that but it fits nicely. And watching Jesse, almost trembling, as he stood up to Walt and wanted out was beautiful, even though he was back on his side defending him in the end (in what will undoubtedly be a situation where Walt will screw them over).
