With 'No Mas' honestly I really didn't get the crawling to the altar at all the first time I watched lol and I think I was too 'wtf is going on' to really appreciate it at the time, but I liked seeing the Cousins a lot more on rewatch once I better got who those characters were and what the point of them all crawling was :P Beautiful cinematography as ever
Walt's speech at the school assembly was sooo awkward and horrible that I was just cringing heh, especially when it kept cutting to everyone else's wtf reaction shots. At the same time though it did suggest that he must feel SOME personal responsibly for it still if he's going to work that hard at rationalising it to himself and looking up all of the worst plane disasters to compare it too. Hmm. Also of course burning the money, even if he does later change his mind. I don't know how much of it is feeling guilty for the meth manufacturing and plane crash though, and how much of it is just wanting to end the the meth manufacturing because he blames it for losing his family. Probably more the latter? When he turns down Gus's offer he does say it's because he wants his family back. He also points out to Gus that he has more money now that knows what to do with, which takes away the excuse that he will have to get back into the business to make more money...
I did aww at Walt picking Jesse up from rehab and Jesse noticing that 'your windshield's broken' hee. And aww, this really is the start of subdued and broken Jesse :sighs: And Walt trying to suggest to Jesse that 'in spite of how bad things got it really could be looked at as a wake up call', again reinforces my suspicion that that's what he hoped the death of Jane would be for Jesse. And typical Walt arrogance with him trying to tell Jesse that he's very up to date on the plane crash, far more than you are, and there are many factors at work there and he blames the government. And there's Jesse looking so sad and saying you either run from things or you face them, and he's accepted that he's the bad guy
With 'Caballo Sin Nombre' was I the only one who didn't get why the cop overreacted the way he did?? I mean yeah Walt was acting like a big baby having a tantrum lol, but it's not like he was physically threatening the cop in any way whatsoever, I really didn't get why he suddenly pepper-sprayed him. Surely that wasn't legal? Walt did have a lot of rage issues this episode what with throwing the pizza (lol!) on the roof as well when Skyler wouldn't let him in
Oh and I wondered if it was meant as a callback to his conversation with Jesse last episode when Walt talks about he can't be the bad guy...( Read more... )
