Breaking Bad Season 5 (Here)

Recommended Posts

I just finished the first 4 seasons on netflix and thought I'd have to get some kind of internet stream to catch up. Just realized last night they have all the new episodes on TWC On Demand in HD. Cool Story Bro. :cam:

I've heard so many supposed spoilers about the last few episodes of this season.

-Skylar wants to go to the DEA so Walt strangles her.

-Mike ends up in federal prison somehow

-Jesse gets shot

-Walt Jr. dies in a car crash

-Steve Gomez is secretly part of the drug trade

-Steve Gomez dies from the ricin cigarette

-Hank finds out during the last episode of this years half season

i can see #4 coming from a mile away. the rest are entirely feasible and highly likely imo

Well I think that the fact this season is started up as slow as it has, I could see all of this feasible. poo has to hit the fan soon....

When is episodes 9-18 coming on?

I'm convinced Walt will be exposed and go on the run. He's getting sloppy, buying flashy cars, and if you remember the very first episode of this season he was at a diner making a 52 with his bacon and using an alias and had a huge machinegun in his trunk. Seemed like maybe a last stand sort of a thing, and obviously would be a year from yesterday's episode. Walt had died completely, and only Heisenberg remains. He doesn't care about Skylar anymore whatsoever. His indifference toward her even after her saying she wanted the cancer to come back is remarkable. Hank is also setting up surveillance on Mike, so he'll eventually see him with Walt, which will bring back memories of his boss mentioning how Gus used to come over to his house for BBQ's, right under his nose. Hank will put it together that Walt is a chemistry genius, paid for his PT, has nice cars. He already made a remark about Walt being a millionaire car wash owner. It's only a matter of time.

I think the pacing is good. Maybe a tad bit slow but there's tension building. The end of season 4 wiped the slate clean as far as what's driving the story so they have to take a bit of time to establish what's the story is about now(and the psyche of all the characters). I think they've accomplished that now with Skylar actually speaking.

Slow? Boring? Are you guys serious?

The confrontation with Skyler was EPIC Walt and its when he is in that mode that you really see his genius in action. Countering every point or idea with a barrage of negativity in a way that makes her actually believe that they are dead ends. And then her attempt to hurt him at the end of it by telling him that she was waiting for the cancer to return. fuging Brilliant scene.

The Cars? Walt's realization that the Aztec has become a liability and has to go, the new car that Jr was all meh over resulting in his second Challenger. The whole bit was quite entertaining.

The twist with Hank getting promoted and sidelined for the case really should create more breathing room for Walt while at the same time setting up a parallel between Walt and Hank to the one between Fring and ASAC Merket.

I cant say I was at all disappointed.

To those of you that think is show is being boring - what do you think this show is really about? I get the sense (not just from this thread but from other discussions) that some people think this show is about a spineless man turning into an alpha badass, and Skylar is the bitch trying to prevent that. If you think that you are missing out on a tremendous amount of depth in the story.

the whole episode was about skyler being a bitch. you coulda skipped the whole thing and not missed anything.

the only point to the episode was to show just how much walt has changed, and how that affects their relationship. skyler can no longer bully him like she once could.

but i knew that anyway.

walt is probably gonna get jesse killed by accident imo. everything bad that has happened to him on the show has been a direct result of walt and his "measured" responses. getting the poo stomped out of him by hank, jane dying, combo getting killed, him killing gale...the kid being poisoned...i don't see jesse as some sort of foil to walt, but more or less a tragic figure that doesn't realize his bad luck is really the machinations of walt. and i don't think he'll ever realize that either. just too easy.

Everything bad that has happened to anyone on the show is a result of Walt.

I don't think Skylar has ever been a bitch on this show and it amazes me that so many think so. She has reacted to her husband of 15 years completely throwing their lives upside down. She has had no control over any of it and has reacted only when Walt has forced her hand. She even tried to embrace it to a point and kind of started breaking bad in her own way but that has backfired. I think her story arc is great. This show isn't just about Walt and Jesse.

I disagree. Skylar is a ***** and she embraced the money after she slept with beneke and she was staring at her feet on his heated tile floor. The only thing she is good for is cooking books.

I honestly feel like Walt is the one that will end up dying. Not Jesse or hank. It's like scarface, Pacino had to die or the movie would have been poo. Walt has gone to far to go back, and has done to much to make it out alive. I do think there is a slight chance that Jr. dies though, and that will be the incident that causes Skylar to go even more off the deep end, which will probably result in Walt having to kill her.

She only slept with Ted so it'd piss off Walt and he'd leave. Like I said she's only reacted when Walt has forced her hand. I find it amazing that Walt can poo all over her and everyone loves him but the second she fires back she's a bitch.

Personally, I loved the episode. I've always thought Skylar was a beyotch too, but when I step back and look at it she's the human here. As much as I love Walt, you aren't really supposed to "cheer" for him like you did when he was trying to defeat Gus. Gus is gone, Walt is the danger now. He's killed, he poisoned a child, etc. What has Skylar done? As natty said, she's reacted. There is nothing she can really do except wait.

Also, what significance is there to the watch Jesse gave Walt? Obviously it means something, can't really decide what though. Time running out (the close up of the hand ticking at the end of the episode, and also going back to the 1st episode of the season Walt's cancer seems to be back). And even then, what is time running out on? Walt's life, his sanity, cooking, etc.? Or maybe Jesse and Mike are one step ahead of Walt and planted something in the watch? Mike and Walt have always seemed to fight over control of Jesse, and he has continued to protect Walt...but maybe time is running out on that as well.
