maybe i am. i just think there could be better ways to have jesse connect the dots. why would the first thing jesse thinks whn he loses weed is that huell took it like he took his cigarette so walt could poison brock? seems like a far stretch to me.

ah well let the games begin.

It seems a little too convenient, but Jesse now knows exactly what type of man that Walt is and the depths that he'll go to get what he wants. He was in the exact same situation with the cigarettes it was deja vu and whats the chances that both times he'd just come from Saul's office? I think it was an organic way to put things together because Gus really had no reason to poison Brock but who could stand to gain from everything.......

I think it was good enough. Maybe there was a better way to make Jesse find out, but it worked well. Don't forget there was that one scence before where he was beating and almost shooting Walt, who basically got out of it by being all like "You know me, I'm not that type of guy...". So Jesse pretty much had suspicions all along, and what was holding him back was his trust and respect towards Walt. With that completely out of the window now, the realization makes sense.

So I guess the ending with Jesse in Walt's house is going to explain who trashed Walt's house and sprayed Heisenberg on the walls as seen a few weeks ago.

Anybody have any speculation about what role Lydia, Todd, and Todd's Nazi buddies are gonna play in the upcoming episodes?
Their gonna try to get Walt to cook again, hence the reason Todd left him a voicemail. Walt may turn them down and potentially start an all-out war.

I think it made perfect sense cause it reminded him of before. I don't see how else Jesse could've figured it out other then Walt just admitting to it.

One thing I will criticize them for is when Huell lifted the ricin cigarette from Jesse. Wasn't the ricin cigarette in Jesse's cigarette pack? But Jesse still had the pack. So Huell was somehow able to pick-pocket the ricin cigarette out of Jesse's cigarette pack, right? Isn't that incredibly far-fetched? For him to not only pick-pocket a cigarette out of the pack, but specifically the ricin cigarette? How is that even possible to strategically accomplish? Picking out the weedbag was completely believable, but the ricin cigarette?

Think about the state of mind that Jesse's been in recently. He's been basically dead, throwing money away and not giving a ****. The only other way for the writers to have him find out would have been a direct source like Walter or Saul confessing. This made it much more clever as it requires Jesse to think back and realize that this guy Walter White is willing to do anything. From now on its just going to be action and action and more action. The M60 is probably for the Nazis though, and that's what's going to happen in the last episode of the season. War.

Im wondering why Walt keeps getting this particular bottle of ricin. He made the first one out of some damn beans in a few minutes in his kitchen in the first season. Why does he not just make more?

Why make more and waste your time if you have some ready to use right there in your fingertips?

Im assuming the police are out of the picture, atleast to an extent as hank cannot confess his findings due to him being a part of walts earnings and walts dvd threat. Does jesse become the main villain to walt now?

That makes sense. I would assume it would be the exact same pack, which they would've had to look at before.

Control. He needs to know that he's the only one in possession of that vial. Why that specific vial keeps coming up could be symbolic.
