-Holy shit, the song they found for the meth montage this week? “Crystal Blue Persuasion”? How fucking perfect is that? With this song and the Wendy song from a couple seasons ago, they really lucked out on being existing songs that match perfectly what the show is about.
-The meth shipment system they were using for the Czech Republic project, where they put bags of meth inside barrels of chemicals, reminded me of the one Gus used to transport meth in the Los Pollos batter. I’m guessing Lydia came up with this system for both of them.
-I loved in the storage locker scene how Skyler was using a friggin’ bathroom scale to try to weigh the money. She’s so helpless.
-It seems like Jesse is free and clear now, doesn’t it? (And from the looks of it, not adjusting to well to his directionless life). I wonder if he’ll try to get back together with Andrea now that he’s out of the business. Think so?
-Finally, I don’t think Walt is dumb enough to leave a copy of Leaves of Grass with Gale’s incriminating initials inside. I think subconsciously Walt wants to get caught. Too much guilt.
Those are my thoughts from this episode. How do you think they’ll fill out the final eight?
-A lot of it, obviously, will have to do with Hank investigating Walt. I think I’ve written this before in one recap or another, but I think this comes to a head when Walt kills Hank. Killing his own family member is a line Walt still hasn’t crossed. It’s coming.
-I’m sure we’ll also get payoffs of some of the show’s long-running secrets or mysteries. Jesse will probably find out Walt kinda-sorta killed Jane and poisoned Brock. But for that to have a big emotional impact, Jesse will probably have to get back into business with Walt.
-Do you think Walt is done cooking for good? I don’t.
-They’ll also have to spend some time getting from the current point to the flash-forward at the beginning of Season 5, with Walt sitting alone in a Denny’s on his birthday, with hair, Vermont license plates, and a brand new machine gun for protection.
-Oh, and they’ll have to set up their new spinoff as well.
Before I go, I thought I’d leave you with a nice couple minutes that are still my all-time favorite from this show.
That’s all for me. Thanks for reading and commenting!
