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?

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?
hmm interesting thought...well what if he just put a similar pack of cigs into jesse's pocket while just taking the pack with one ricin out?

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.

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 the scene where Jesse sees Walt singing in the shower after Todd kills the kid on the motorbike has a lot to do with it as well. Its really makes a lot of sense when you see how on-the-edge Jesse has been in general and especially around Walt, and the things Jesse notices about Walt over the last season or so. At this point, I don't think Jesse needs to be 100% sure.

Like Joker said in The Dark Knight, sometimes all it takes is a little push.

ah well let the games begin.

I just thought out about it some more, and maybe it doesn't make perfect sense, because I forgot, as the story goes, all the clear evidence is supposed to point to Brock getting poisoned on his own as just a freak accident and neither Gus nor Walt intentionally poisoning him. So why should Jesse suspect foul play at all? I guess in this case, he accused Walt of having Saul have Huell pick pocket him before with the ricin only to be convinced otherwise and he confirmed it for sure with the weed bag. I guess its understandable that he wasn't just willing to attribute it to a coincidence and that was enough for him to come with that conclusion (combined with the fact that he knows how crazy Walt is now). Just wasn't as clear and transparent as I originally thought.

I think he made the connection that Walt manipulated him, which set him off. Not that he necessarily poisoned Brock. Though at that point assuming that Walt may have done the poisoning as well isn't a reach.
