Mini caps of True Blood and Breaking Bad’s season finale.
Breaking Bad: Chooch
Jesse was about to have a showdown with the two meth dealers that he thinks killed an 11 yr. old peddler. Out of nowhere, Walt mows them down with his car while Jesse stands there stunned. Walt gets out of his car, checks the one under it to see that he is dead… walks over to the other who’s struggling to reach his gun. Walt kicks it out of his reach, picks it up & puts a bullet in the dude’s head. Blood splatters! He looks at Jesse & says, “RUN!”
Last night was the final episode of the season. I was so anxious when it started. I had no idea how my dynamic meth-cooking duo were ever going to get out of this one alive. Where do they start the show? … with Walt & Skylar, in a flashback, all dressed in 80′s clothes, her with Farrah Fawcett hair & him with HAIR. She’s pregnant with Walt Jr. & they are looking over the house they are thinking of buying. It’s the same place they live in at present.
In the next scene, Walt is in his body-smashed car, on a deserted farm waiting for his judgement day with Gus. He doesn’t wait long. The “fix-it” man (I found out later, his name is Mike) has him get out & walk towards him & his car & after patting him down, Gus gets out of the car & says he “has some ‘splain’ to do!” Somehow Walt talks him into letting him continue cooking & forget about Jesse & just forget it ever happened. This is after he made a little hint that Gus might have ordered that little kid killed which got Gus all irate. Gus agrees & says he’ll get him a new assistant of his choice, not Walt’s.
It was then that I knew that Jesse & Walt weren’t going to be around for long. Walt knew it too. Of course Gus brought back Gale, the first lab assistant that Walt had fired & replaced with Jesse. This guy was there to learn all there was to know about Walt’s perfect meth recipe. Gus made it clear to him that Walt was terminally ill & would need to be replaced on a moments notice.
Surprisely, there was no Hank or Skylar storyline on this final episode. I was glad too. Sal was involved though. I love this guy. He covers his own ass at every turn. He sets up a secret meeting between Walt & Jesse after he sets the fix-it man off on a wild goose chase to locate Jesse. They need a plan & Walt has it all figured out…. that is until he gets a call. There’s a spill at the lab. Walt is needed to clean it up. He knows his time has run out. He hadn’t executed his plan yet. It was for Jesse to find out where Gale lives & kill him. Then Gus would have no one to replace Walt. Jesse said he couldn’t kill him & Walt agreed. He would do it. Jesse just needed to tag him & get his address. Walt was going to do it that night. Not to be.

At the stairwell to the lab, Walt begs the fix-it dude to let him live. He offers up Jesse. He will give him up. Just let him make a phone call & have Jesse meet him. Agreed. Walt calls. I love that Jesse still calls him “Mr. White”. Fix-it man hears that it’s Jesse, but Walt spills out over the phone, “I can’t do it. we’re stuck here. You have to do it. You have 20 minutes on them. go…. they are going to kill me!” Fix-it man is pissed. Walt has the upper hand. He tells him he knows where Gale lives & he’s a dead man. Fix-it man sends his lackey off to try & stop Jesse.
Meanwhile Jesse gets to Gale’s & when he answers the door, he draws a gun on him, pointed right at his head. Gale starts backing up, pleading for him to not do it… Jesse has tears in his eyes… the screen goes black….. “BANG”…. the end.
True Blood: WaffleBoy
Hey there Gasmii, finally after a long nine months, we get to watch the best show about vampires and sketchy Southern accents in the nine o’clock time slot today. The starts right up where last season ended. Bill has gone missing after purposing to Sookie, and this gives Sookie the perfect opportunity to bitch and whine to every other character on the show about how this is making her feel. Sadly, Anna Paquin doesn’t do said bitching in the nude, which is about the only time she’s not annoying.
Sookie isn’t the only character on the show with man troubles. Tara is still messed up over Egg getting shot at the end of last season. She lashes out at a whole bunch of people, but Lafayette takes her back to his place and settles her down with tequila and pills. Then Tara’s mom shows up with her minister, and , well lets just say tequila does a better job of settling jangling nerves then Jesus in this particular situation.
Speaking of Bill, okay, we weren’t, but we do find out what happened to him after the dessert course when he proposed to Sookie, and no it doesn’t involve the practical application of dine and dash. Bill gos for a car ride with blood spitting nipple tweakers, takes a dirt nap, and uses a little old lady as a Red Bull. He also makes a face like he just pooped an official NBA basketball when he finds out he’s in Mississippi.
It’s a god thing Bill is out of the house this episode, because Jess brings home a snack, a truck driver she was chomping on at the end of the last season. Things get really wacky when the trucker dies and Jess puts him under the house and tells people a possum died. It’s just like the movie Risky Business only with a dead trucker instead of a crystal egg.
A bunch of other stuff happens that involves Andy giving Jason an awesomely dumb pep talk, Eric showing off his butt, and screaming into a bluetooth headset, and Sam having a strange dream about hard water showers in Arkansas. If you haven’t seen this show yet, you really need to.
