I still think Jesse is poisoning someone to death before the end of the season. We haven't seen the lucky cigarette in a few episodes, which is just enough to make its reemergence "surprising." That thing is like the proverbial "gun in the first act," its a stone cold lock its fired by the middle of the third act.

Hanks dead, that is happening.


I also hope Skyler gets the ax, that would be amazing. She really deserves it.

hank is clearly dead -- he wears a lot of orange (godfather), and keeps referencing movies where the cop dies at the end (french connection etc)

There was an episode last season where Saul was telling Walter that in case of emergent situations, he had a guy who could act as a hit man, or a guy that could make Walter 'disappear.' This vacuum dude is that guy.

also i lold at ted's death.

This season started off slow but they did really build it up for a great second half.

no its still kind of scandalous. it starts to become about shoplifting. skylar gets into that too. and theres this subplot about ted. he survives but with extensive nerve damage and he needs to learn to walk again. and walt jr.'s PT cruiser plays a role somehow i'm not sure how exactly

i know alot of people will bitch but i think its a fresh direction for the show

Lol, too late! I will say that after watching the pilot episode I want to get up to date as soon as possible. I can't stop thinking about it. That scene when his boy is getting clowned on and he leaves, comes back and busters the dude out ... I was like "fuck yeah!" The acting is pretty solid, for sure.

just finished the third season
i like it a ton but the characters are getting too frustrating
the plane crash was one of the dumbest plots i can think of and the teddy bear being the only thing in color during those openings was awful, it sucked in schindlers list and filmmakers need to never do that again
tucos cousins were stupid and shouldnt have been in this show at all
thats not really what i was looking for in this show
some terminator caricatures
of course they walk away from an explosion and don't flinch
saul goodman is the best part of the show whenever hes on
these are my free flowing thoughts

I kind of agree with everything except the plane crash, that was absolutely brilliant on so many levels. Season 3 was definitely my least favorite...

The thing about the plane crash is that it's been built up for the entire season, and I don't know about you but when I see a pink teddy bear I am thinking of a small child, probably a little girl. And the fact that this occurs at Walt's house draws a correlation between a burnt pink teddy bear and Walt's family. The bear is a symbol for an innocent life being damaged or lost. So the entire season, I was thinking "something awful is going to happen to Walt's family, probably his baby girl" (at least after she's born, but that's the beauty of the writing is that your expectations are intentionally pushed in the wrong direction as the season progresses).

It's only in the final moments of the season that you realize you've missed the entire point and in fact have been thinking exactly the same way as Walter: "Walter's family and their safety are all that matter". The consequences of his actions suddenly become clear and the point of the whole season is brilliant illustrated: Walt has been trying desperately to get what he wants, to protect his own family, to secure their well-being after he is gone, and in doing so he has neglected the well being of everybody negatively affected by his actions - Jesse, Hank, Jane and her father, but most importantly demonstrated by the plane crash are the people he has never even met- the meth heads whose addiction is fueled by Walter's actions, and of course the victims of the plane crash.

The plane crash is both a symbolic and literal reminder of all the pain Walt has caused to those around him. The eye from the teddy bear that has appeared in season 3 and 4 is a reminder of the innocent blood spilled by Walter's actions, blood that has yet to be repaid...

i'm not looking for symbolism if it involves that many coincidences and leaps of faith
two planes guided by the father of of the girl walt lets die crash right over his house
i mean for some reason i didnt have a problem with danny trejos decapitated head being on top of a turtle with a bomb wired to it but i like this show a lot more when it appears to be taking place in the same universe i live in
plus i mean it was his goddamn house everyone would have been assuming the bear was his girls either without making it pink or not making everything else black and white

I know it's a pretty unrealistic plot point...
but the colors in the show are consciously chosen by the creators for specific reasons, and pink is a pretty blatant one
