I saw this a few weeks ago and I forgot to post. This video is awesome! It's a great prank on unsuspecting fans.

Blood Money



I really don't have the patience to sit around and wait for this Season to end and then on top of that wait for it to arrive on DVD and then on top of that wait in line at the Library to get my copy. All while avoiding spoilers that are sure to big news after the final episode airs. That's just too many variables that I don't want to have to deal with. So, watching it via AMC on their website is the best solution and I dove head first into Blood Money.

With the exception of the opening scene, which shows Walt with a full head of hair and beard visiting his broken down and tattered house retrieving the vile of ricin that he hid in the bedroom socket outlet, Blood Money literally picks up from the cliffhanger of the previous episode where Hank discovers who Heisenberg is, aka Walt. Obviously Hank doesn't want to rush to judgement and sets about doing more detective work to get concrete proof. I thought this would be how the rest of the season would play itself out. All cat and mouse. Nope. To my surprise, Walk grows suspicious and confronts Hank about it. And sure enough, they have their big face to face showdown, which is about the most electric thing I've seen on the show. I literally was holding my breath the entire time.

I can't wait to watch the next to episodes waiting for me. But I'm gonna try to space them out and not plow through these too fast. Need to savor this and make it last. Anyway, this second half of the season is off and running. I'm happy and excited to say the least. As for the flashfoward scene that opened this season as well as the first half of Season 5, I like it. It shows us the viewer that they are leading somewhere big, one that seems to have Walt in a tailspin and something big had to have played out or will play out. How else to explain the need to have ricin again?

Buried



Man, this is some great writing all around. On the surface, you would think that nothing much happens in this one, but that is totally wrong. This episode is all about self preservation and it comes from the two most unlikeliest characters on the show. First, you have Skyler who has wanted nothing more than to see the demise of Walt so that she could reclaim her life for herself and her two kids. But as soon as Hank and her sister Marie come at her, trying to take her child away, that just forges a new bond with Walt to stand by his side. I kinda saw this coming, but it was great to see anyway. The other one that is now in self preservation mode is Hank of all people. He can't and won't tip off the DEA about what he knows because it will be the end of his career in law enforcement. It was also fascinating to see Marie turn on her sister so quickly and she has every right to be p*ssed off for being lied to and manipulated all this time.

Great cliffhanger...again. I can't wait to see what Hank has in storage for Jesse (Aaron Paul) and how this interrogation is going to play out. Will Jesse's guilt finally get him to cooperate with Hank and flip on Walt? Or is the guilt so powerful that he has mentally shutdown and a deal of any kind is not going to alleviate him of his anguish. Fantastic episode. Still a trip to see Jesse Plemons on Breaking Bad. I'm so use to him being Landry still.

Confessions



Holy crap, this episode was EPIC. There are a few amazing scenes that play out. For starters, I didn't even think of Walt, Sklyer, Marie and Hank ever sitting down for a "meal". I didn't think they would ever share the same room again. But this sit-down sets up one of the best blackmail plots ever on the show. It was a thing of beauty watching Walt's confession DVD that basically implicates Hank as the Meth Kingpin, which really puts him in a corner. So much so that for the time being, Hank is now Walt's b*tch. Ouch. The other amazing revelation has been in the making for a while. I've been waiting patiently for the time when Jesse would finally learn the truth about who stole the Ricin Cigarette from him.

Jesse's beat-down on Saul wasn't something I saw coming. But damn, that was powerful. What could possibly top this? How about Jesse racing over to the White residence to burn it down. That's the cliffhanger, with Jesse dousing the house with gasoline. Can't wait to see the next episode to see where this goes. The other scene that I really dug came a bit earlier in the episode and that's when Jesse called Mr. White on his bullsh*t about how he is always trying to 'work him' by pretending to be a father figure to him. The hug at the end was still Walt working him, but from a different angle. This series never fails to deliver. Best. Show. Ever!

Once I realized that Jesse was missing, I don't know why I didn't even begin to suspect that he would be with Hank, spilling his guts about everything that he and Walt had done over the last year. Everything from Brock to Gus. The episode is basically divided in half. The first half is Walt discovering that Jesse had retaliated by invading his home and the subsequent story he tells Skyler about the gas pump, carpet, etc...He really sucks at telling lies. He is so transparent. Couldn't even fool Skyler.

The second half of the episode is all about Jesse and how he came to be in the company of Hank, who by the way is really just like Walt in a lot of ways. He will do anything, even risking Jesse's life to get what he wants. Not sure how the next episode...or even the rest of the season is going to play out. The line has been drawn and it looks like Walt will officially put a hit out on Jesse, which is exactly what Jesse wants. I think his plan involves having Walt implicated with a 'murder for hire' sting operation.

I really liked the scene where Walt Jr. hugs his dad because he is scared of losing him. Remember, his son is why he started doing all this meth stuff in the first place, to provide for him and the family. And in that very moment, you see this in the look in his eyes. This one thing, in all of this is still pure because Jr. hasn't been tainted with the knowledge of what his father has done "in the name of love". Another stellar episode.

Another incredible episode. I've said it plenty of times this season, but the writing here is some of the best ever as this one kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. Great setup (pun intended) for the first half of the episode that leads into a showdown at the end out in the desert. Nice con job by Hank and Jesse to get Walt to believe that he was burning Walt's money leading them out to where its buried. But what comes next is what has me itching to see what happens in the next episode. The gunfight between Hank and Gomie against Walt's 'Hired Goons' looks to be something that neither will walk away from. I just can't foresee anyway for them to escape with all that man and gun power against just the two of them. Fantastic episode. Only two episodes left.   :(

Today is the day. Series Finale for Breaking Bad tonight. Both happy and sad at the same time. Anxious to see how it all ends, but it's bittersweet because to me, this is the end of the greatest TV show ever created.  :(  I hope the show can go out on a high note, which I am 100% confident they will. Going to watch the last two episodes that I've been saving all week leading into the 3rd and final episode tonight. Mini marathon!!  ;D

Wow. Just....wow. I knew that there was no 'out' for Hank. There was no legitimate reason that the bad guys would ever let him walk. Prior to watching this episode, I kinda figured that with Hank and Gomie being the only ones that knew about Walt's dealings in meth that with their demise, his secret would be safe (even if Marie knows about it as well). I thought this was where the writers were taking the story. Well, it didn't quite play out that way. It played out exactly the way it should have.....a showdown between Walt and Sklyer and a knife. How far down the rabbit hole has Walt gone? The scene with Walt and Skler rolling around the floor with knife in hand is the last thing that Walt would have thought would happen. His whole Meth Empire was based on providing and taking care of his family and now here he is.....trying to kill his wife....here he is....getting choked by his son Flynn, calling the cops on him. Here he is kidnapping his own baby daughter Holly. The last thing he ever thought about when starting all this.

Walt does have one trick left up his sleeve and that is to save Skyler and admit that he 'force, terrorized and threathen' to kill her about his empire. She can now have a life because the cops will buy this and won't pursue her beyond this. I think. Not much of Jesse in this one other than being kidnapped and being forced to cook one last batch so as to train the other guy to be a better cook himself. Another incredible episode. Just 2 episodes left......  :(
