    To be fair you did seem to have watched the last episode with your eyes half closed. Although why that warrants insulting you, I don't know.

    I was a little stoned, it's part of my Breaking Bad ritual, a bottle of Maredsous and a spliff.

    Put each other on ignore please and let us get back to the thread.

    I too am surprised by the Skyler love all of a sudden - this is the same person who did the dirty on Walt, reaped the rewards cash-wise (car wash), helped make the video, sleeps with Walt in S4 (knowing about a lot of the bad stuff that's happened), pushes Walt to kill Jesse and generally enjoys the money and becomes more confident with the money laundering and less bothered about the criminal transgressions.

    Is she as bad as Walt? Nowhere near - nobody in the show really is, but let's not act like Skyler is all of a sudden the voice of reason. Then again, there's no character in the show who's completely good either (save maybe Walt Jr) and that's what makes it so great.

    Edit - The ignore comment was meant for muttelr/twelveways/anyone with their stupid petty arguments.

    I don't think the "love" for Skyler is strange.
    At first she's a victim. She's being lied to and her husband does highly illegal stuff whilst she is clueless.
    Then she becomes a bitch. Cutting the poor cancer ridden Walt off from his children and the family he's trying to leave a nest egg for.
    After that she becomes a hypocrite. She's against Walt's meth cooking. She realises there's a lot of unpleasantness surrounding it but she's willing to smile, play along and run the car wash money laundering scheme and enjoy the fruits of Walt's labour.

    People seemed to hate her the most at this stage. being anti-meth but still living off the proceeds from Walt's meth business.

    In the last episode, she seems to snap out of it. Although Hank arrested him, Walt comes home. They fear the worst (Walt killed Hank) and Walt can't adequately put their mind at ease. At this point Walt's thinking they as a family can move on to a new life.
    Skyler (+jr) are abhorred by Walt, see him as a dangerous sociopath who will kill anyone, including family (so potentially hem as well) and distance themselves from him.

    I think at this point people like Skyler again because she finally acted in accordance with her conscience. Walt's a monster and she doesn't want anything to do with him. Rather than "Walt's a monster but he's bringing in mad money, so I'll stick with him."

    Yeah, the problem with Skyler recently has been that she continues with the preaching while benefiting from the lifestyle. She should have left long ago. Of course she's not as bad as Walt, but practically no one (except Todd, probably) is as bad as Walt.

    Her comment about getting rid of Jesse made sense, though. Not that I wanted Jesse gone - just the opposite! - but the logic was pretty sound.

    Last two episodes are 75mins each apparently.
    That running time includes ad breaks. 60 minute shows without them.

    Jesus Christ, this season of Breaking Bad really seems to be bringing out the mentals.

    I don't like Skyler much but I don't see how she's reaping the benefits of Walt's money? I know she's doing a lot for the laundering side but it's not like she's buying thousand dollar dresses and Ferarris now, or did I miss something?

    @BinaryBob101

    I can't say I felt much myself when Jane died, she was blackmailing Walt and sending Jessie down a possibly fatal path (I know Walt kinda did this too but it's different).

    @Ka-blamo

    I guess you enjoyed Marie learning about Hank's death then? :p

    So so happy that the next two episodes are extended!
    Breaking Bad Mondays are the best.

    Perhaps Skyler isn't "benefiting" from the lifestyle as such - bad choice of words - but she freely participates in it. Which makes it a bit problematic for her to continue harping on about it.

    Anyway, it's a bit moot now. Hopefully we'll get to see a bit of other characters. I don't want the final two episodes to just be about the Walt thing.

    I don't like it when people say that Skyler is benefiting from the drug money. If she was complaining to Walt from her new Ferrari while in her new Gucci dress then I would understand the complaints. Until this point she's led the same lifestyle as before, only with added pressure of living a constant lie with her closest family, a husband who's changed from the man she once knew into meth dealing kingpin and living in constant fear of being found out by the authorities or having people come to hurt her and her family.

    This is insanely good TV. Even though not much really happened in that episode, it was absolutely riveting, edge of the seat stuff literally the entire thing.

    That moment with him watching TV and Gretchen describing that Walter White was gone and Heisenberg was all that remained, whilst simultaneously seeing his face change from Walt to Heisenberg was just incredible. How he didn't win the best actor Emmy (seriously, Jeff Daniels?) is a fucking mystery.

    Well fuck me. They've got a whole lot of ground to cover in the final episode.

    For a second - just a second - I thought "wow, even Nazis have standards" when they focused on Todd's murder in Jesse's confession.

    Turns out, no, they don't. Nice little play there. :)

    I also want the actor who plays Todd to get an Emmy. Fuck me that guy is an effective villain.

    He really is. He looks a bit simple, but the nonchalant way he threatens and murders is incredibly sinister.

    Damn fine episode, written by Peter Gould (who also wrote the first episode of this second half of season 5, my other favourite episode this season).

    One question: when the nazis got Jesse's confession tape, I'm assuming that they got all copies of it? If that's the case, then why were they concerned that Todd got mentioned on it? If there's no copies, and everyone who knows about it is dead /captured, then what's the worry?

    EDIT: Actually, now that I think about it, it might have been more of a "omfg, this guy ratted you out" outrage, rather than them worrying about Todd being compromised.

    Yeah, it's exactly that. If we learned anything from Walt's reaction to Jesse speaking to the DEA, it's that ratting is a big no no.

    Get bent.

    I'm hoping that there will be some if-not-happy-then-something-less-than-devastating ending for the horror show that is Jesse's life. It really couldn't get much worse for him.

    Come to think of it, I can't remember a single good thing happening to Jesse in the whole course of the show. He has his small victories, sure, but they are always followed by some sort of tragedy. And the stuff happening to him feels so much worse than what happens to Walt, because Jesse at least has ambitions of being a good person.
