Over a year we’ve waited, and it’s finally back tonight.
Episode threads are assumed to have unboxed spoilers, right? If not, [SPOILERS]. There. I absolve you of using boxes.
We left off with Jesse killing Gale*, the only other person who could run the meth lab, making Walt indespensible to Gus for the moment. Which will create quite a tense situation of cat and also cat. Victor very well may find Jesse at the crime scene, and while they may have to let Walt live for the immediate future, they will have no reason to hold off on Jesse.
Well, if you’re reading this thread, you should know what’s going on, so I won’t summarize the whole thing. I’d recommend rewatching the last two episodes of season 3 today if you have the DVDs handy to get yourself ready.
*And he did kill him. No doubt. If Gale turns up alive, I’m gonna burn the whole motherfucking thing down.
Okay, so it’s 9:50 (as in, 10 minutes before the show ends), and I’m going to hazard a guess that this silent Gus scene was his way of saying “Do whatever the hell you want amongst yourself…just don’t get seen doing it.”
Oddly enough, I noticed the jeans first, then I noticed they were both wearing the same jeans, but didn’t think much of it other then someone being lazy in wardrobe. Then I was trying to figure out who was on Walter’s shirt, but wasn’t trying to hard and a few minutes later they showed it again and I was thinking “Wait, I thought I was looking at Walter…oooh, they’re both wearing the same thing.”
A pretty sloppy episode, all things considered. It didn’t really cohere into anything worthwhile, and the opening with Gale and Gus, while interesting, didn’t really add much to the rest of the episode. Incidentally, one of the reviewers claimed that we’d find out who was responsible for the laboratory, which lead me to believe that they’d be introducing a major character or plot development. We already knew that Gus had Gale help him build the lab. It was mentioned in S3.
I don’t know. Maybe it’ll sit better after I’ve let it digest.
Oh yeah, and in the anticipation thread, I totally pegged that Victor was going to die. I was all but certain within fifteen minutes of the beginning of this episode, when Victor was saying more than he had in all the previous seasons combined.
What was intense about it? Did you really believe Gus would kill walt or Jesse? I think I was underwhelmed because we barely heard from Jesse the last half of season 3 and he still didn’t say anything this episode.
