Bet you anything Jesse blows up the meth lab during a cook.  Remember the flashback scene at the beginning of Sunday's episode where Walt warns Jesse not to smoke in the RV during their first cook?  The show loves to drop subtle foreshadowing like that, and meth labs are prone to explosions.

I thought that almost immediately when I saw Todd chaining him up in the lab, but then they showed that picture of Brock and Andrea that was obviously a warning.  It might happen, but not until Jesse knows those two are somehow safe.

I was speechless during this episode. Oddly enough, I miss Gomez the most. I knew Hank was done for as he struggled to reach Gomez' gun and the Aryans quickly closed the distance. The irony of Marie telling Skyler how things were going to play out (wearing black!) , Walt's new low (Jane.) , Walt Jr. protecting his mother. After all that is said and done, it's Todd's demeanor that makes my skin crawl.

Todd is pretty creepy. Really sweet and innocent on the outside, but capable of doing horrible things without feeling bad about it. But the big thing is that he never shows malice. He just goes about the horrible things in his sweet, innocent, disconnected way.  He's turned out to be an interesting character.

I always thought that all the phones were just poorly made, and they were breaking on accident.

I just realized that Todd saved both Walt and Jesse's lives in this episode. Go Todd!  ;)

The last two episodes will be "extra long" (75 minutes instead of 60):

The last episode is titled "Felina", a reference to this song.  I wonder what the significance of that is.

Well, if that is the song it is specifically referencing (and listening to it, that seems very likely), the song is about 2 people who fight over a girl.  The singer kills the rival and then goes on the run, fearing death and justice.  But he needs to return to the girl Felina, facing certain death.  And then he dies with Felina kissing his cheek.  So much of this story covers the season so far:  Felina (Jesse) flirts with a new man (Hank) and there is a fight. The rival dies and the singer flees.  That's where we finished.  So based on the song, it sounds like what we all expected: Walt is coming back for Jesse (presumably also taking the time to spy on loved ones so we can see how they moved on through his eyes, the way the singer looks onto his hometown with longing.  Of course, maybe he's just checking in on them by using the internet or something.  But Walt needs to go back for Jesse and dies, either by the cancer or by whoever he needs to face to save Jesse.  Jesse either forgives Walt or shows him sympathy as he dies (or it twists the end of the song by having a "kiss on the cheek" gets replaced with spitting on his face).

Of course, that's all fairly general.  Can't wait to see the details!  TWO MORE EPISODES!  And you know that the cliffhanger next weeks is going to make you even more crazy than the last one!

Oh and George RR Martin basically just said "Fuck, we ain't getting an Emmy this year, and rightly so."

Very interesting about the song! I always knew Jesse was the bottom in that relationship.

George R R Martin's comments on other TV shows are always on point. LOL

another theory I've seen is that Felina is just an anagram for Finale.  I'd be disappointed if that's all it is. That's weaksauce.

Can't it be both?

They have toyed with word play titles before.  The only reason the season 4 episode was called Face Off was because someone joked to Vince Gilligan should use the name because of this...



...and he did.

it might have a double meaning.  the theme of the song is that a man commits a serious crime, then disappears to evade the consequences.  which is what Walt did.  then he returns to the scene of the crime because he can't help it, and is killed.  which seems to be where this is headed.

Yeah I agree. The song lines up nicely.
