    Why does Jesse continue to call Walt "Mr White"????

    How can Walt's brother in-law be so dense as to not suspect him of being a major-league drug mfg after all of this time???

    Is this the final season for BB? I heard it was - but there have been hints that it will continue on for at least one more season. ( ie "see the final 2 episodes for this season" promos on AMC)

    Jesse's first impression of Walter White was that of a respectable authoritaty figure. That impression continued through the informal education afforded Jesse as he became a highly proficient meth chemist. On that basis it appears the writers have chosen to portray Jesse as an essentially decent young fellow, an impression which I believe will have some significant effect in the future. Especially since Walt is becoming the epitome of evil.

    Why would he? He's been conditioned by his early association with Walt to have a diametrically opposite impression of him. And first impressions are lasting.

    If it doesn't devolve into totally incredible absurdity I hope it continues.

    I don't see how they could make yet another season, I don't really know how they managed to get in a fifth one.

    BB is coming back for a final season in summer of 2013.

    Send off for 2012 was Walt's brother-in-law on the crapper - realizing what Walt is..........

    Technically it's still the same season, I think. They're just dragging it out.

    I find the show disgusting..........I just think it sets the wrong example and that is why I dont watch it. Before you all scream and cry I dont think it should be taken off the air I was just stating my opinion.

    That scene left me wondering.

    I recall that the issue of "W W" came up in an earlier episode but Walt quickly dismissed it by referring Hank to a Walt Whitman poem. So why does the mere existence of a Walt Whitman book now evoke a eureka moment for Hank? Unless I've missed something it appears the writers are pressed for time and at a loss to find a hook into the coming season. Because such a vague and shallow coincidence, with absolutely nothing more substantive, is hardly a reason for Hank to suspect Walt.

    But I'm anticipating Hank confronting Walt and Walt reminding Hank that his medical treatment was paid for with drug money, which would look very bad for Hank if that came out, and so on. Which will make for a very interesting development.

    Poor Skyler.

    I believe Gale gave that book to Walt, and left an inscription similar to the one that Hank found earlier.

    I've got another one - who was the Chicken man, really? There is implication that his back story in Chile is something of interest. Remember the Cartel boss who kills his partner but says "only reason I don't kill you is because I know who you are" - seems like he must have been pretty important in Chile to not have been whacked right then and there. And the DEA looks for his records in Chile but can't find them. They don't tell us much more than that but seems like they are implying there's an important story there. I'm wondering if Mr. White doesn't wind up killed by folks from Chile over the Chicken man's death.

    Is it just me or did this season seem to be comparatively short? Or did it seem so because of Walt's transformation into a truly evil character.
