[quote] what else could Jesse mean by 'where you really live" as an alternative to Walt's family's home?
[quote]In the plaza scene, we see another bald man who looks vaguely like Walt greeting a little girl (his daughter, apparently). So maybe the suggestion is that Jesse wants to go after Walt's family.
Jesse never saw the guy greeting his little girl. That was the whole point - that Walter didn’t actually bring anyone to get violent. It was Jesse’s mistaken conclusion (with just cause of course) that the stern bald man who was lurking on the lookout (for his daughter, as it so happened) was after him. The sequence of people the camera focused on (running guy, sweeper, bald guy) reflected Jesse’s paranoia.
The irony of missed chances is that Walt was actually on the up & up, and now he no longer is, because Jesse mouthed off at him over the payphone (the most unrealistic tool and biggest artistic license of the show so far – are there any payphones left after 2010?). Jesse now poses a threat in Walt’s mind (where he lives!).
The guy embracing his daughter was an “ah shit!” moment for me.
[quote]The body of the kid on the bike in the desert.
Anything having to do with that kid (clothes, bike, flesh, and bones) was dissolved in a big vat of acid and flushed away.
[quote]Hank's ego is just as huge as Walt's but at least it can be said that Walt has proven himself to be able to rise to whatever challenge he met and Hank who always walked around like he had the biggest dick usually crumbled under pressure.
Never thought of that. Excellent analysis!
[quote]I'm tired of seeing Aaron Paul as a depressed, crying, raging overactor.
At this point, and especially in this episode, they are ALL overacting - from Aaron Paul (“WHY DOES HE KEEP GETTING AWAY WITH IIIIIIIT!!”) to Gunn’s scenery-chewing Lady Macbeth, from RJ Mitte (who seems to want to force tears everywhere), to Betsy Brandt (her over-accentuated accusatory whispers at the doctor’s office were soap-like and cringe-worthy).
I also agree with r41.
Still, LOVED this show and am glad I’ve stuck with it, even after I moved to Puerto Rico, where it’s only available through non-AMC hit-or-miss internet streaming.
