Things came to a head and everything fell apart in Sunday's episode of Breaking Bad. We said goodbye to Hank (Dean Norris) and Gomez (Steven Michael Quezada), Walt Jr. (R.J. Mitte) said goodbye to the father he knew, and Walt (Bryan Cranston) said so long to Albuquerque, most of his fortune and his family. And poor Jesse suffered the worst fate of all -- destined to be a meth cook / slave for the Aryan gang. (Or as Paul tweeted, "dog on a leash.")
The episode also featured plenty of lines destined to become instant classics. Below we count down our five favorites.
“My name is ASAC Schrader, and you can go f—k yourself.” (Hank to Jack)
Hank died the way he lived – without compromise. This pretty much put the nail in the coffin for viewers holding out hope Walt would be able to negotiate for Hank’s life. But Hank knew he was a goner, telling Walt “You want me to beg? You’re the smartest guy I ever met, and you’re too stupid to see—he made up his mind ten minutes ago.”
“I watched Jane die. I was there. And I watched her die. I watched her overdose and choke to death. I could have saved her. But I didn’t.” (Walt to Jesse)
This is an unspeakably cruel moment. Not only has Walt signed off on Jesse being tortured and killed by Todd, but he’s brining back the cruelest thing he’s done to Jesse and using it to hurt him even more. It’s also a callback to season 3’s “The Fly” – when an addled Walt apologizes to Jesse, and nearly confesses his role in Jane’s death. In that case, he was contrite, but here there is nothing but malice.
“I need the police. My dad—he pulled a knife on my mom. He attacked her. He’s dangerous. I think he might have killed somebody.” (Walt Jr. to a police dispatcher)
After seasons of dumping on Skyler (Anna Gunn), Walt Jr. finally sees his dad for who he is – and makes a stand against him. Like Gomez showing up to help Hank, Walt Jr. finally realizing the situation with his father is something we’ve been waiting for.
“I told you Skyler, I warned you for a solid year: You cross me, and there will be consequences.” (Walt to Skyler)
At first it seems like cruelty, but Walt gives Skyler an alibi here, performing for the police officers he clearly knows are listening in on the conversation. Walt tweaks the history of the last year, making it seem like he threatened Skyler at every turn in order to get her to become involved in the business. That wasn't the case. Walt is truly playing a different type of game here.
“I’ve still got things left to do.” (Walt to Skyler)
It’s on. Like “tread lightly” in the first of the final eight episodes, Walt’s final words set up the showdown that is to come in the final two. We can only assume he’ll plan an intricate revenge against the Aryan gang. And we hope the plan will somehow put things in motion that will free Jesse, though we aren’t counting on it considering how crushing this episode was.
the whole act of walter taking holly and calling her and calling her a bitch is orchestrated by walter when he figured he really fucked shit up. everything he has done, is for his family. family is important to walter and has been emphasized greatly in this, and the last episode. when walter calls skylar, he knows the police was going to be there. what he basically did was clear his wife's name. it is his first time to ever swear and call skylar a bitch. now go back and rewatch that scene while keeping this in the back of your mind. notice skylars eyes when she's on the phone, and it changes. she knows what walt is trying to do.
i actually never even have thought of that
edit: oops, i missed dino's post above me, posted too quickly.

At first when they played the scene where they were cooking meth in the RV, I was like fuckkk dont waste precious tv time!!! But holy crap did this episode deliver! Was glued to the screen the whole time.
If you read his body language, and think about how smart Walt actually is, you come to realize he made that last phone call to Skylar to exonerate her from any crimes she and Walt committed together. Listen to what he says... he basically states that it was him the whole time, he was forcing her to do it, she had no idea what was really going on, etc, etc.
Then by the end, he's almost crying, and he gives Holly back anyway.
cant decide if I was more choked when Mike or Hank got sent to Belize
both very amazing characters...Hank was a good guy and had a more brutal death but Mike left behind a granddaughter being cornered by the police.
sad Season is sad
