I'm not reading this thread in case I find something out I don't want to but I started watching this a few weeks ago on recommendation from here and I'm really enjoying it.

On the third series at the moment and the twins have just tried to take care of Hank. Bloody serious that episode was.

:D I've mentioned this before in the thread but it's funny how many people I hear saying how good the show is after that exact episode! I was the same, right after that episode I was like 'This is the most amazing piece of television EVER'

The gun Walt has during the flash forward is a gun that one of the Nazis is shooting with in the scene.

He obtains that in Denny's fast food restaurant in the flash forward from last season though?

Interesting to hear people say the Nazi's want Walt dead. Never saw it from that angle. I was convinced they didn't want the only person who can save their business to get locked up. They made a point of it in the opening that only he knows how to make it go naturally blue?

Interesting theory: Todd gets killed in the shootout along with Gomey and Hank. The nazis now don't have a cook. So they kidnap both Walt and Jesse and force them to cook for them. Walt escapes, goes and gets his guns and kills everyone except Jesse. They ride off into the sunset. The end.

Now I don't want to watch the next 3 episodes and commission you to write the fan fiction. Make it a coma for Hank and we've got a deal.

that bit was, for me, one of the most tense and exciting pieces of telly I'd ever seen - I think I held my breath through the whole sequence.

Interesting theory: Todd gets killed in the shootout...

Whether the rest of your theory is right or not, I will bet money on that bit happening...

...so as to leave the Nazis cookless, as you say. It makes perfect sense from a plot point of view.

The only person we KNOW is walking away from the shootout alive is Walt. Gomie's a goner, for sure. I've definitely got a bad feeling about Hank, especially after the call to Marie. :( The only one whose fate I just can't work out is Jesse. If *any* of the Nazis survive the shootout, he's a dead man for talking to the DEA. Walt can't control them now, even if he wanted to.

It's depressing to think about, but I don't see any way out of that situation that sees Walt still on the streets (albeit on the run) at the time of the flashfoward that doesn't see Hank, Gomie and Jesse all dead.

So, given that, I think we probably now know who the M60 is for, but then what about the ricin?

Complete Series on Bluray coming on Nov 26

breakingbadbarrelsmall.jpg

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment cooks up a full batch on 
Nov. 26 when "Breaking Bad: The Complete Series" comes to Blu-ray in its entirety. One of the most explosive series ever to air on television, the 16-disc set comes with all 62 episodes and more than 55 hours of special features.

Starring three-time Emmy winner Bryan Cranston alongside two-time Emmy winner Aaron Paul, the critically-acclaimed drama from Sony Pictures Television boasts one of television's most radical storylines, giving viewers a glimpse into the life of how far a man might go in order to take care of the ones he loves.

Fans who are addicted to the series and itching for another hit can now indulge in more than two-hours of never-before-seen footage in a ground-breaking series documentary exclusively in the box set, which comes packaged in a collectible replica barrel representing part of Walter White's dark legacy. The all-new documentary chronicles the making of the final season, from filming the first table read to the very last day on set and everything in between, including Bryan Cranston inviting the camera in to his Albuquerque living room for the first reading of the final script with Aaron Paul. The box set also contains all bonus features from previously released seasons (including retail exclusives formerly only available in select stores), a Los Pollos Hermanos apron and a collectible booklet with a letter from Gilligan, as well as a commemorative "Breaking Bad" challenge coin designed and created by Gilligan exclusively for this set as a token of appreciation to fans for making the Breaking Bad journey.


The dark series also stars Anna Gunn, Dean Norris, Betsy Brandt, RJ Mitte and Bob Odenkirk. 
"Breaking Bad" was created by writer/director/producer Vince Gilligan (TV's "The X-Files"), who also served as executive producer with Academy Award winner Mark Johnson (Rain Man, 1988's Best Picture) and 
Michelle MacLaren (TV's "The X-Files"). Co-executive producers of the series include Melissa Bernstein (TV's "Rectify"), Sam Catlin (TV's "Canterbury's Law"), George Mastras (TV's "The Dresden Files"), Peter Gould (TV's "Too Big To Fail"), Thomas Schnauz (TV's "The X-Files") and Moira Walley-Beckett (TV's "Pan Am"). Stewart A. Lyons served as Line Producer/UPM. Cranston and Diane Mercer (TV's "Arrested Development") are producers of the series. The series is produced by High Bridge and Gran Via Productions in association with Sony Pictures Television for AMC.

"Breaking Bad" follows protagonist Walter White (Cranston), a chemistry teacher who lives in New Mexico with his wife (Gunn) and teenage son (Mitte) who has cerebral palsy. White is diagnosed with Stage III cancer and given a slim chance to survive. With a new sense of fearlessness based on his medical prognosis, and a desire to secure his family's financial security, White chooses to enter a dangerous world of drugs and crime and ascends to power in this world. The series explores how this fatal diagnosis transforms Walt from mild family man to a kingpin of the drug trade.

Anybody else under the impression it'll jump to the near future now? I mean, the only way Walt could still be 'free' is with Hank and Gomez dead. It seems academic to show their death after it's so heavily implied by the reverse chronology.

Cool would be to hold that shot of Walt screaming and shouting, the shots firing until the gradually stop. Camera holds the shot as Walt slowly gets up and only revealing in the final second who is still standing and who is down. I think it'd be very powerful to see Hank sprawled out over the desert in the distance, the viewer never seeing his face ever again.

It must be coming sooner than later at this point, but if Hank does go down I think we need to see the immediate, visceral family reactions. They'll need that to earn whatever comes next.

Wow, the last ten minutes was intense! My heart was pounding, I really thought

hank was gonna die! Did surprise me no one appeared to get shot in that gunfire onslaught though...

I do wonder if he does die though cos it seemed a bit predictable at the point and well breaking back is known to be unpredictable !

So, given that, I think we probably now know who the M60 is for, but then what about the ricin?

The ricin is for himself. My guess is he's off on a killing spree that will end with him arrested but before he does that he smokes the ricin knowing that if he doesn't die in whatever shoot out he has planned and gets arrested, he'll die from the ricin.

--Behind-the-Scenes of the Alternate Ending

- Alternate Ending A 3-minute alternate version of how Breaking Bad could have ended.

:/

I thought it was interesting that Hank's (likely) undoing was a Heisenberg-esque choice to call Marie to massage his own ego, rather than call in for backup/transport

Edit - to expand on that, the extra minute might not be enough to save him but he may now also lose the status he craved for catching Heisenberg...

For me it was the Tucco/Salamanca dinner episode that got so exciting I couldn't calm down, don't think I've ever got up and stood in the middle of the room holding my head to watch anything else like that :lol:
