So what was that whole thing with Jessie and Mike? Was Gus testing Jessie? I noticed he said "I'll reimburse you for your cars".
But all around a great episode, for everyone except Walt. You know what? Who cares. I think I'm now in the Actively Rooting Against Walt camp. He's just so ... pompous and high on himself. Everything is finally going his way and all he seems to focus on is the fact that Skyler is enjoying her new criminal role and Gale is getting the cred for his work.
Gus told Mike to make Jesse feel useful and also to be grateful to Jesse -- Walt is never actually nice to Jesse -- so that he gets out of his nihilistic despair, and also so maybe in the future he sides with Mike and not Walt. I think Jesse is fairly loyal to Walt. Or was. And I think that if Walt eventually turns on Jesse, that will be the total break for me with Walt. I am not rooting for him, but I'm not rooting against him yet.
The entire show has happened because Walt has more pride than any 4000 other people put together. But putting Hank onto Heisenberg again, when now Hank has nothing else to do but obsess about it, is one of the stupidest things he has done. I loved Skyler's face as she watched him talk to Hank. Of course, I cannot see how this will end well for Hank.
The music was great. Tunefind only has episode 4 up so far.
Seems like Gus is really going all-in on this obsessive quest to control Walter. Anyone think it will end badly for him?
So it seems like the high-level story arc so far is going like this: Season 1: Learning to become a meth cook Season 2: Learning to survive in the meth-dealing business Season 3: Life as an employee of a drug lord Season 4: The Aftermath of Gale's Murder? The struggle to remain free? I'm having a hard time pinning down what this season is all about.
Please do let us know if someone finds out what the music from this episode was. It made me want to go buy it.

yeah, I think that'll be the rest of this season, setting the stage for the final season, which will be kept in the family - Walt moving into Gus' role in some way, and Hank coming after Walt.
I felt like there was some subtle foreshadowing a few episodes back when Marie suggested they put the baby on the carwash logo - like she'll play some big part in how things finally play out.
Last night's episode though was uneventful enough to not warrant it's own thread haha! Stupid mid-season family drama... only memorable scenes were Skyler flipping the coin on the 4 Corners, and Jessie's brief encounter with Gus at the restaurant. Even Jessie going into the drug house felt bland.
