Then once he realized Gus was going to replace him and Jesse with Gale he had to start figuring out a way to kill Gus.

Also, $3M over 3 months doesn't require too much of an extra push to get back into it.

The cancer was never the point of the show. He didn't just keep "cooking for the hell of it." The show's main point, it's basic premise, has always been about a good guy making a conscious decision to become a bad guy. We get to witness his transformation, and the effects that his decisions have had on others.

The cancer was the reason he initially got into the business, sure. And it might be back again this season. But the reason he stayed in the business, chose to keep living as a criminal, was because he began to enjoy the lifestyle. He began to enjoy being bad.
That may be so but my point was it became less compeliing once Walt wasn't racing against time anymore.

This season is going to be about Walter finally reaching the position of power in the drug business that he always craved, and what happens as a result of that.

What? That never happened, at least not near the end of season four. What I remember is that he had another checkup, and according to him he was still in remission. If it helps he met some young dude who had recently been diagnosed with cancer and he told him that cancer's not a death sentence and to live life by your own terms.

Well, I was talking about the ending of the Season 2 episode "4 Days Out." At the end of that one, Walt and his family go visit his oncologist to see how he is doing. His doctor tells him that there has been an 80% reduction.

There has been a lot of speculation that his cancer is back and that he's not admitted it to anybody, though, so I know what you're talking about.

How in the hell did Walter get jesses girls kid those lily of the valley flowers. He never left his house.

I'm also interested as to who was looking at Walt and Jesse at the end when they're both in the parking lot.

Mike will be back and ill be anxious to see how he's incorporated with the show again.

Jessie is an idiot that has grown on me after season 3. If anybody should die it should be Walt but the family should keep his drug money

I've heard theories that when Saul met up with Jesse and his girl he gave the kid some "candy" on the sneak. We know Walt is resourceful, and he has been bullying Saul pretty consistently since the 3rd season.

My theory is that Mike is actually more of a middle man for Gus between Pollos and the Madrigal company which was supplying the equipment for the super lab. Methinks we're about to see some of Gus' bosses this season, possibly Germans.

Gonna have to back and read a season four summary. Started watching this on Netflix earlier in the year and got through it in just a few weeks, but I've already forgotten most of what happened the last episode or two of season four.

If someone wants to just tell me on here I'd be ok with that. PM me if you don't want to post it and piss people off but I figure most of the people interested in the show and reading this thread have already seen the first four seasons.
