Another great show.

I loved Hank's face during the restaurant scene.  It's like he was exuding as much fury and hatred as a man possibly can without exploding.  Walt's video seemed kinda smart, but it also felt like something of a Hail Mary pass.  I felt a little dejected, because it looked like Walt was gonna slither out of this again. 

..then Jesse's scene...

I could tell when he started frantically patting himself down that he had put 2 and 2 together and figured out that Walt had poisoned Brock.  The confrontation in Saul's office was amazing.  Jesse was pure fury, and Saul's terror was so intense it looked like he was gonna shit himself.  Great resolution, and I think Walt was really caught off guard.  It seems like he expected Jesse would come after his family, not his property.  What a way to end the episode.  I guess that explains why the place is in such ruin at the point of the flash-forward.

I don't know about you guys but the last few episodes seem to get more and more unbelievable.

Meaning amazing or "not believable?"

I don't see anything from the last few being all that far out there.  There are a lot more things going on and less down time than usual, but I don't think anything is all that unrealistic. 

I was a little surprised Todd and his crew escaped unscathed during their assault but since they didn't show how it went down I guess that's left up to interpretation.  Walt's "confession" was out of nowhere but makes complete sense in the grand scheme of things only because of the $177,000 that they paid.

To me, the most unbelievable thing was the guy with cancer who is on chemo digging a HUGE hole and filling it in in less than a day. Jesse's revelation seemed far-fetched at first but, after I thought about it, was believable. And I don't think Walt's "confession" is supposed to be airtight, it's just supposed to scare Hank and delay a potential DEA investigation.

So, d00hickey, you need to explain what you thought was unbelievable and why, instead of just making the general claim.

Why would Jesse have a Hello Kitty phone case?

It is the "free" phone Saul gave him.

Skylar, WTF?  "What's one more?"  That was pretty chilling coming from her.

Oh yeah, and Jesse drinking coffee out of a DEA mug is an awesome visual joke.  I was laughing so hard I had to skip back a little to hear what was being said shortly after that.

Yeah, I've been one of her defenders for a while, but it's hard to say she's much better than Walt at this point.  Even Hank is kind of hard to root for, with his total disregard for Jesse's safety. Pretty much just rooting for Jesse right now.

I'm curious to watch Jesse's recent string of good ideas go head to head with Walt.
