- Once I realized that Walt was being set up by Hank and Jesse, I was giddy, and the more he confessed, the happier I was. And then I realized how much time was still left after Walt was cuffed, and I worried. Holy crap was that a great half-hour of television.
- Also: Brock knows. He may not consciously know it, but deep down, he knows.
- The only thing which didn't ring true to me was how easily Huell flipped. I just didn't buy it, and found it more convenient than plausible. He's never been portrayed as dumb before.
- So what happens next? I don't think Hank is dead, despite the most foreshadowy phone call of call time, precisely because Gilligan knows we know what that call usually means. Gomez, on the other hand, is likely no longer among the living.
Here's where I think this is going: I think the Nazis are somehow going to force Walt and Jesse together (the "last cook"?), and force them one last time to trust each other one more time to save their lives, revealing the true character of each. And it will be awesome. Three hours to go.
