Gotta love the look-forward to next week's episode clip of: "You know who I am..." --"Heisenberg." -- "You're damn right."
Albuquerque is too small market for the blue stuff, or as the Phoenix Methylamine buyers like to call it, "Fring's stuff?" If they requote that brand in front of Walter White on next week's "Say My Name" episode, can we finally foretell the inevitable pl-pl-pl-pl-pl-plat-plat-pow with that unforgettable machine gun purchase? [Follow me @TravisHouser]
Walt: Great scientist, bad businessman in his youth ($5,000 buyout? No one would leave their job for just $5,000). Trying to reclaim a billion dollars that he thinks he deserves is such a midlife crisis symptom. The best part of the character this season? His expectancy of death. Mastermind Walt doesn't even flinch now when guns are point blank on his noggin. Walt just wants to be notorized as a success story so he can lose some of that ambition and thrill ride he is on as kingpin and die. When has the bad guy ever been categorized as having a successful ending though?
Jesse: Rehab really has made him lose the love of meth he once thrived under, I mean, if you think murder and selling drugs are the highlight of those youthful years of life like I do. Him without doing or selling drugs is so dull now. Guy is a zombie of what he used to be. His tragic ending will be just to live the Citizen Kane lifestyle. Wealthy, alone and whispering, "Bitch."
Mike: Each scene he has now, other than the eluding of non-Hank DEA agents (which always means second-class policing) scenes, tells the viewers he will be the first to go. The problems of being a supporting character in an all-time great action/thriller series. Also the problem when Heisenberg continues to last second out-scheme and influence you to change your mind on a plan you had for an entire episode even with a gun towards his head.
Skyler: A whiner who now only loves to wine and drink wine. (No one likes a dinner scene ruiner.) Vince Gilligan, you sexist comedic writer. Gotta respect the handling of women characters from Breaking Bad. Or maybe whining was prethought before episode one to be a trait on that side of the family. Right, Marie? And Walt Jr..
Saul: S'all Good in his future, Man.
Hank: Missing? Although in the upcoming episode, something tells me he is going to catch on to something. Because Hank Schrader always
