Alright, I believe that I have had enough time to properly process what happened last night:
If I am being 100% honest, the only story line that doesn't really interest me is the one revolving around Todd, his creepy uncle and associates, and Lydia. I know that eventually that story line will intersect with the main story line but I feel that the rest of the show is so good, taking time away from it for these characters is a disservice.
For 4 seasons, this show repeatedly backed Walt into one dangerous corner after another so it is definitely interesting to see other characters being backed into corners of their own now. Hank's arc in particular is phenomenal. You have always kinda rooted for Walt to get away with everything but now that Hank has discovered the truth and Walt has used that to gain leverage over him, all bets are off. While nobody was killed, Walt's video "confession" may be one of his most brilliantly ruthless moments to date. Now I want Hank to get the information that he needs to save himself and bring possibly bring Walt down. Dean Norris is doing a spectacular job conveying every emotion that you would expect Hank to be going through right now and it would be a crime if he didn't submit himself for Best Supporting Actor this year.
My God, Jesse's arc is brutally tragic. The scene in the desert between him and Walt was difficult to watch because we know the truth but that didn't change the fact that you wanted what Mr. White was saying to him to be sincere. Not going to lie, I got a little teary when Walt hugged Jesse. Then just when you think that Jesse is going to be able to walk away and get somewhat of a happy ending, it all comes crashing down on him and you. Damn, I just thought that the hug was one of the most heart breaking moments of the show but the moment that Jesse realized just how deeply everything went was just as bad. A few weeks ago I said that I hoped that Walt wouldn't need to buy that weapon in the flash forwards to go after or defend himself from Jesse but now I fear that is a serious possibility.
