Dude. Those cufflinks are amazing. I wonder if they make similar earrings. I would SO FREAKING WEAR THOSE.

LOL! Could I turn those cuff links into earrings? Hmmm...

OK, Baddies - what did you all think of last night's ep?

Wondering why the Merry Band of Skinheads didn't just off Jesse. He's been cooking a while now and got the meth up to 92 percent pure (and blue!). So why can't Todd just pick it up from there? He was a pretty good cook before and he's had Jesse apparently for months now. Does he keep sparing Jesse's life because he thinks his crush, Lydia, would think badly of him if he killed Jesse?

And OMG - the scene with Andrea just about did me in - as did Walt Jr.'s phone call with Walt.

Another question plaguing me: If Walt's still on chemo (administered by Vacuum Guy...oy!), how come his hair grew back?

Congrats to Anna Gunn on her well-deserved Emmy! She looked stunning. No surprise that the show won, too, although I was disappointed that Cranston didn't get one.


XOW.

Todd is just beyond creepy. He is one scary dude.

All I know is the firepower in Walt's car means bad things are going to happen soon.

I had to turn away from the TV at the scene with Andrea. I looked at my husband and asked "Why are we watching this disgusting TV show?" His response was "I don't know!" Poor, poor Jesse! And them saying "Remember there's still the kid!" Oh.my.g-d!

If I were Jesse I'd piss in the next batch! Just kill me now!

If Jack keeps teasing Todd about what's-her-name Todd's going to go on a killing spree!

I'm wondering if Skyler is going to make it. My heart was pounding when Todd and Jack and the boys "visited" with her at the house.

The rest of the episode was just meh. I know they had to set up the finale though.

Look out!

Okay, my take on this...

Lydia would not have a problem with offing Jesse.

Todd does not need Jesse to cook.

As strange as this may seem, I think Todd has a problem with killing Jesse, and the needing him to cook is a ruse to keep him alive.

WTF? I know, you are all thinking Todd is a stone cold killer, and aesir has been sampling some of Heisenberg's product.

I think Todd has difficulty as seeing people he doesn't know as people, so it is easy for him to kill strangers. once he gets to know them, it is different. Firstly, Jack had to give a barrel of money to Walt because Todd would not accept it happening any other way. Skyler gets a warning based on Lydia demanding she be taken care of. Did anyone else notice that when Lydia complained about a message not being sufficient that Todd looked truly disturbed by the idea of killing her? And what about Todd bringing Jesse two kinds of ice cream because he didn't know which was his favorite? I think the whole treatment of Jesse is because Todd can't figure out any other way of keeping him alive when everyone else is worried about remaining safe. (Based on the reactions during the shootout, I don't think Todd really worries about safe.)

My guess is that since Todd has such a difficult time forming any sort of relationship, or even viewing others as actual people, that when he does find one he can form a bond with it becomes that much more important to him, and he can not just discard the relationship/person the way so many others can.

I really didn't expect the whole thing with Saul, though I suppose that should not be a surprise based on what he knows about who knows things.

Todd obviously has sociopathic tendencies and is therefore more dangerous than any of them because he is totally unpredictable. He can be caring one moment and then shoot somebody in the head the next, with an apology in advance. Or like he told Walt after the execution of Hank, "Sorry for your loss."

Lydia, on the other hand, is just as capable of murder but does it from a distance through proxies. They are quite the odd couple.

Jesse is like a wounded animal now, which when cornered can cause great harm to others.

Walt, having realized that everything he has done for his family did them more harm than good, is probably thinking "Oh, what the hell?"

These 4 characters will somehow collide in the finale, along with Neo-Nazis, DEA agents, and who knows who else? It should make for quite an ending.

Heads' up, Baddies:

The Breaking-Bad-a-Thon begins Wednesday at 8 m EDT! Join me in reliving a simpler time, when Walt's bacon numbers were cute versus sad and creepy, and poor Skyler thought her biggest problem was that Jesse was selling pot to Walt!


XOW.

Call me stupid, but I don't get how watching his former Grey Matter buddies prompted Walt to run and fight another day rather than giving up (like he seemed ready to do before he saw the show).

Of course they are distancing themselves from him. Of course they're not giving him credit. He's an egomaniac...is that the answer?

That sounds about right. But instead of killing them, maybe he could talk them into funneling his money to his family once he passes on.

The cast was on Conan last night along with Vince Gilligan. There was a hilarious commercial where the barrel was used for an exercise program.

It's not on You Tube yet. Instead we'll have to settle for this Conan interview from April of this year.

He was last seen in New Hampshire now. The police in Albuquerque are going to assume he's on the run and not in the area. When he returns, he will have some time before they figure out he's back and begin an active search.

I think there were two different things at work there, one when they said his only contribution to the company was the name, yet it was how history played out with that company that drove him to refuse to sell the methylamine and instead keep going with the cooking himself.

The second thing was at the very end, when Gretchen talked about the smart sensitive Walt being gone, though she could not speak about Heisenberg. For a long time in the woods he reverted to being Walt, the mild mannered chemistry teacher dealing with a shit hand. First his old friends disparage his decent past, then, then declare him dead, and only Heisenberg is left.

I wonder how much head start he has on his plans before Carol alerts the police he is back.

Vince Gilligan's word for the final episode: "Woodworking."

Jack snarked that Lydia's private area might contain a woodchipper. Will we see someone end up in a woodchipper during the finale, ala 'Fargo?'

Great finale. Tied up pretty much everything in nice neat package.

The two "assasins" scene cracked me up.

I loved those characters.

The scene with badger dressed up in the dollar bill costume spontaneously pops in my head. I'm sure I look odd laughing to myself in public.
