I think I missed that episode from season 1. I came to this show a bit late, although I have seen a number of episodes that I missed previously.

I'll have to go back on Netflix and see about that one.
It was implied. Those opening sequences are hooks that reel us in. Powerful stuff!

Oh yes, sometimes the most horrific things are the things we don't see, those things left for our minds to slowly contemplate. It is one of the best devices for suspense with subjects that are so far beyond normal.

Sometimes it seems like in these days of CGI and also in some fairly violent movies, such as the Saw series for instance, the movie makers just show the audience things directly, which I think over time desensitizes the audience to the shock value of the subject matter.

But in the case of this past episode of Breaking Bad, not showing what they did and just leaving the implication along with the silence of the characters and the music of the scene was just masterful.

It is scenes like this that I think cause some people, including me, to say that this is the very best dramatic series on television right now and perhaps for some time.

These characters crossed over. They are on the other side now. They descended to somewhere dark.

Also I meant to answer another post earlier regarding what to do with Todd...I do believe I would have chosen option #2. He deserves it. Seeing through the eyes of Jesse, since I identify with him the most at this point, I would think to myself -well I'm already a killer by association, so if I'm going to be a killer, it might as well be for the right reason and not the wrong reason.- Then I would deal with Todd accordingly.

I was thinking WW might have pulled a Gus Fring box cutter move on em. Then I thought that's too extreme. Todd is a soldier, but a sociopathic one especially after keeping that jar with the spider as a trophy. He could be useful especially if they happen to go to war against that rival group. If you ever watched Band Of Brothers he's like Ronald Spears. Also note how respectful he is to Walt calling him Mr. White and almost asking for his insight on the situation. "I don't think I was wrong...am I wrong Mr. White?" Right there you can see validation in him and that's what he likes. Heisenberg thrives on that recognition. Something he never got to achieve as a chemistry teacher, ex-Gray Matter partner, and especially not at the car wash. Here lies a moraly corrupted and twisted individual.

The only other character I can think of that has any resemblance to WW is Michael Douglas in Falling Down. Average joe who goes postal and beats up gangsters with baseball bats...lolz!

That is an excellent analysis of the dynamic between Todd and WW, I have to say. It will definitely feed Walter's growing megalomania.

The depth of the characters in this show is just mind boggling.

Farewell Sam Fisher.

Another great episode, another powerful ending.

I'm absolutely gutted that next weeks ep is the last one for months. I wish they just did the 16 eps back to back, instead of taking a huge break. Really infuriating.

I don't even know what to say after the last episode.

Walter is freefalling, dropped from the edge of the atmosphere, and the earth will not break his fall.

Heisenberg is rising like a rocket, and space will be no barrier.

Breaking Bad is poetry.
