    Yes! Another great episode leading up to the finale. Sad to see it go by so quickly but I can’t wait for the next one.

    I was really puzzled by how quickly Jesse put all that together (the ricin cigarette) and I’ve been reading online for days to make sure I understand completely. I think I’m finally there. (but it was still a hell of a jump)

    As far as the paper towel:
    What is the significance of the bloody boot/paper towel from the beginning? I think it was done to show how quickly they went from killing all those guys at the other operation (in the last episode) to moving the operation. To show where we were in the timeline.

    Will either the paper towel or boot be taken for evidence? He flushed the paper towel but you are right, that boot and any other blood are still a link.

    Will this be beginning of the trail to Heisenberg? Could Todd have said Mr. White one more time? That kid just won’t shut up about him. This is not a good loose end.

      Thanks for your comment Sully! That scene with Jesse on the side of the road was a little weird. I had several discussions with the other half and a couple friends to hash out what happened exactly. I understood the “jist” of it, wanted to understand the whole spark!

      Good point on the paper towel! It would suggest that they had just finished up their “management change”, and also shows how emotionless/psychopathic those three are. They’re having a jolly good time after having a huge massacre. This spells trouble for Walt in some way I bet. I probably am reading too much into the paper towel, but I don’t think it ever went down the pipe…I was just over-suspicious I suppose.

      Both Todd and Jesse are HUG loose ends for Walt’s almost flawless crime. Todd can’t stop leaving voicemails while Jesse can’t stop…being Jesse. Ahh! I can’t wait for the next episode of Breaking Bad!

    This was definitely a turning point for the series. Jesse truly sees Walt for what he is. I do find it hard to believe that such a large man could have deft enough hands to steal anything from someone in that manner, but I’ll let that go.
