Last Nights Breaking Bad...
Me | Sept. 23, 2013 | RetSignman

Posted on 09/23/2013 1:29:04 PM PDT by RetSignman

In my opinion, last nights episode opened up what Walt is going to do in the finale of the series...


TOPICS: Chit/Chat; TV/Movies
KEYWORDS:
In my opinion, last nights episode opened up what Walt is going to do in the finale of the series. He knows he going to die very soon and he showed the only thing on his mind is his wife and family.

He sees the only option left is a deal with the fed's, in that regard, he's holding a lot cards in his favor to save them, after all, the meth operation has international implications and would be a gold mine for them.

With his information, he can shut down the whole operation, get the revenge he wants for Hanks death and the resulting destruction of his family.

He can demand just about anything and they will hand it to him because it will also solve the huge problem with meth addiction in Europe.

The only problem I had with last nights episode was the conversation he had with the man who 'disappeared' him.

Let's face it, he is also a criminal and when Walt asked him if when he (Walt) died would he see that his wife and family would get that barrel of money.

The guy has hauled a dying man out to the wilderness with a barrel containing eleven million dollars in cash AND he is giving him medicine and supplies to keep him alive?

He has to be the most benevolent and compassionate criminal on the face of the earth.

Other than that, it was a good episode even thought he writers went a little out in left field.

What predictions did YOU get from the show?

Uh, I'm not asking for opinions of my prediction, hell I'm probably just as crazy as the writers but they are welcomed too.

Did you see the first episode of this season? It was a flashforward where Walt goes back to his house and gets something out of an electrical faceplate. Maybe a key or something to a safe deposit box.

A flash forward in a previous episode showed Walter White retrieving the hidden vial of ricin from his former home. That leads me to believe he isn’t going to make a deal with the Feds.

The Ricin is going to be served up to the two people he saw on the television in the bar.

Yeah, the first thing I’d do when contemplating a deal with the Feds is buy an M60.

THis is my prediction from a week ago:

September 18, 2013 1:58:32 AM MDT · 338 of 343
woofie
Here is my vote for the ending ...

Walt returns to Albuquerque to shoot the people at Gray Matter

>>>>>>>>
So this week we get Gray Matter on Charlie Rose.

While anything could happen ...Remember he has guns and ricin....I don’t think it will be nice/Also Walt got shafted by Gray Matter and if he can get them to come across with what he is owed it can legitimately go to his family...

Finally
I think the cancer wins

ALL television series, from x-files to breaking bad to 24 to outcasts - are built on a liberal agitprop plank, or they’re very shortlived.

Watch what you watch.

A little vial. Appeared to be the ricin vial.

My take was that he had given up at the end of the episode after speaking with Walt Jr. I thought he planned to sit there with his drink, waiting for the feds to come — until he saw his former colleagues on TV. That reignited Heisenberg.

Random Q: Does anyone remember — was Dimple Pinch Mike’s brand of scotch?

This whole time I’ve been thinking the ricin was for himself. Could it be for Elliott and/or Gretchen Schwartz? Never would have guessed that... and I still don’t think that’s likely. But I feel like almost anything could happen at this point. I really doubt Vince Gilligan made the finale predictable.

I’m so excited for next week, and yet I don’t want Sunday to come because I don’t want it to end. I don’t know how any TV show will ever top this.

There was also a scene earlier in the series which showed him hiding the vial behind that faceplate, so it’s definitely the ricin.

giving him medicine and supplies to keep him alive? He has to be the most benevolent and compassionate criminal on the face of the earth.

He's not giving him anything. He said he was doing the supply trips for $50,000 a pop.

When a desperate Walt offered him $10,000 to keep him company for two hours, he confirmed the amount and haggled him down to a single hour.

He's not benevolent or compassionate in the least. He's a guy who makes his living as an expert at getting people successfully into hiding. If he starts killing his clients to steal their money, he'll kill his business too.

He seems a decent character, but not overly kind.

He was also the main male character (the bail bondsman) in Tarrantino's "Jackie Brown."

At the beginning of the series we learned that Walt was cheated out of a fortune by Gray Matter. Now at the end, I think Walt blames them for the bad choices he felt compelled to make to take care of his family due to his life threatening cancer. I predict he will make them pay.

Not sure what will happen to Jesse and Todd. There only seems to be one way out for Jesse and that is a dirt nap. However they seem to be dragging it out too long for something so simple. Can’t wait to find out.

Dead men tell no tales, if he’s as good as thought, there’s no one who would even know what he did.

How many risky $50,000 trips would he have to do to reach eleven million dollars?

It stretches the imagination just a bit, IMO.

If he shot Walt, threw him in a ditch and walked away with 10 million dollars, who would know?

I like him. You’re right, he’s not compassionate, but he’s not a horrible guy, either. He is good at what he does.

Do you know the actor’s name? He looks so familiar. I’m wondering if he was ever on an episode of The X-Files.

Maybe they showed that M60 25 times in order to get people to guess...Walt can barely shoot a revolver, I don’t see him shooting a 60.

And he is a guy that knows where an $11 million barrel of money can be found aafter the owner hawks up that last of his lungs.

You may be right but it seems to me he is anguishing over what his family thinks of him right now and going out in a blaze of (glory) would only cement their views of him as a monster.

I think his son pretty much cemented Walt’s fate with the phone call. I think it left him with nothing to fight for. Walt turned right around and called the DEA and told him who he was then left the phone off the hook so it could be traced.

I think he planned on sitting down to wait for the feds to show up and arrest him till he saw his former business partner on TV. The business partner said that the blue meth was still being made and showing up in Europe which leads him right to Todd, Lydia, and Jesse.

Vince Gilligan’s clue for next week was one word. “Woodwork”. It kind of makes me wonder if Mike somehow survived and is coming back.

Here’s something I think might happen, from the foreshadowing in last night’s show:

The Feds are leaning on Skylar, just like Saul predicted, but she didn’t have anything to give them. The only people she knew who were connected to Walt’s business were Walt, Jesse, and Saul, who are all gone. She doesn’t know where the money is, or where Hank and Gomez are. She is pretty much up the creek... or she was, until the middle of last night’s episode.

When Todd and his friends showed up to “send a message”, they did more than that. They gave her a way out. Not only did Todd remind Skylar that the lady she saw at the car wash was a partner of Walt’s, but they also revealed that she is important enough to be someone the Feds would be VERY interested in.

So now, Skylar can maybe go to the car wash security cameras and pull up some footage of Lydia, or get the license plate of her rental car. Then, she has something to trade to the Feds in exchange for a deal to protect herself and the kids. The DEA already knows who Lydia is, from when they searched her warehouse, so all they need is one clue from Skylar to help them connect the dots.

Robert Forster is the actor’s name. He’s one of those real veteran character actors, so I wouldn’t be surprised if he was on the X-Files at some point.

He’s probably most famous for his starring roles in Jackie Brown, the Black Hole, and Medium Cool.

As somebody else pointed out, his name is Robert Foster. He is one of those actors (like John Travolta, Pam Greer and Lawrence Tierney) that Tarantino pulled out of Hollywood's lost and found and gave them their career back.

He's a very solid, low key actor. I like his character too, he's quiet and a professional, and he doesn't have to kill Walt to get his money. He just has to wait a few months at most.

You’re right, I remember when Lydia came into the carwash Skylar asked Walt why anyone would get a car wash for a rental car. Walt admitted she WAS a former associate, I’m sure it wouldn’t too hard for her to go though her records and possible security cameras for the info. she needs for some leverage.

When Todd described Lydia I said “this is a business, she probably sees 1000 women that match Lydia’s description. If they hadn’t said anything to Skylar, she would never even consider Lydia someone to remember. How many people does a person see and forget about in a day?”

That’s what I’ve been saying! Walt left him at the river, so we never actually saw him die. But what did Mike have to do with woodworking? I must’ve missed something.

It was fun seeing Robert Forster as the vacuum man.

There are two keys to next week's episode; the ricin vial and the M60 machine gun.

Both will be used.

I say Lydia drinks the ricin in her chamomile tea, and maybe Todd with her.

And the Aryan brothers are on the receiving end of the M60.

Robert Forster was in a movie called Diamond Men with Donnie Wahlberg.

A low-budget, low-key movie, but I liked it.
