Todd is hot for Lydia and we get to see it all play out straight off the bat in this thirteenth episode of the season. I was actually pretty disappointed in Todd for not getting the purity of meth above 80%, not to mention the lack of blue. You just can't get a decent meth cook these days.
Following the opening credits we are treated to Timmy Dipshit's plan of 'get Waltzes monies'. Super awesome plan Jessie. Not that I didn't think it would work, but more because OBVIOUSLY THE MONEY IS PROOF. How the hell is this a revelation to anybody?
Loved the following scene with the bodyguard, Heull, facing an all-too clever Hank with back-up from one Steven Gomez. One cheesy looking shot of Jesse with slightly too much brains on the floor and Heull starts crying about it. "I dint no he gonna kill 'im man". Seeing that guy squirm could have been the highlight of the episode if not for the conclusion. Hank's remark; "don't talk about the case because it'll waste his time blah, blah, blah"; was pretty lame though. C'mon Hank, tell him that if he tried to discuss it the other guy will pretend to not know. Maybe that's lame too.
Boom, Walt talking to 'Tank' and agreeing to cook again as he explains that Jesse is not a rat but just a guy who needs to be punished by death. Jesse won't go anywhere near Walt, but wait, plans are occurring; what about that boy I poisoned and his Mum? Smooth.
As Brock looks at Walt you just know that the kid is more intuitive than his Mum. Walt is a shifty guy these days, and so as he awkwardly spits out his lies he seems to be outright losing the ability to actually be a normal person. I don't think there is a Walt / Heisenberg split anymore, I honestly believe there's just shades of Heisenberg.
As Hank listens to the message from Brock's Mum; Andrea; and immediately picks up on how utterly pathetic it is, you question why Walt thought it would ever work. Even Jesse could have worked out it a was a bloody trap. Not exactly one of Walt's best, to say the least.
We're then treated to a lighter, funnier scene with Junior and Skyler working at the car wash. Sal makes his entrance and Junior freaks out on him like he's Bob Odenkirk or something. Followed by Junior kindly telling him to "Have an A1 day". That's another phrase added to the giant list of Breaking Bad t-shirts I want to own.
Then we have the text from Jesse with the money in the sand, and it truly seems as the worm has turned as Walt has a cry and rides off for the sake of his precious money. As Walt speeds along the road confessing to every murder and meth-cook ever I am slightly puzzled as to why the whole conversation wasn't just recorded and used as evidence. Never mind following him there, just go later with the trace you must have had on him, and chill out with this audio jackpot. Job done.
Walt hides away behind a rock, where they'll never find him I guess, and it is revealed that Jesse and Hank were buddies the whole time, sort of. This is where Walt's whole "can't kill family" thing comes back into play, as if we are supposed to sympathise with the devil just because he doesn't murder one particular breed of puppy.
I don't think there was a single person that felt necessarily comfortable as Hank arrested Walt. Even more so when Jesse actually seemed happy for once, and Hank basically declared that he was going to Disneyland. The Neo-Nazis, not being ones to miss out on a bit of action, turn up with every gun they own and... oh my God this moment.
As Tank and the crew started firing, apparently with no concern for Walt despite him being the only good reason for their appearance, I thought for sure that Hank and Gomez were dead. It seems that white supremacists don't have the best aim and so Gomez and Hank slide into cover, like Vanquish but nowhere near as good, perfectly unriddled with bullets.
My guess is that Gomez dies, and maybe even Jesse. Jesse was trying to get out of the car as it was all going down, and I can't help but think that no-one of importance is actually alive in the future when Walt buys a massive-ass gun and returns to the house. I would guess that Walt's family probably dies, Hank eventually dies, and Walt is forced to cook for the Neo-Nazis. Walt eventually escaped and plans on killing them with his giant gun and will then poison himself with ricin afterwards. This is almost definitely completely wrong and good evidence as to why I don't write for the show. I look forward to seeing how utterly incorrect I am.
