Well, now we know why Gus is so obsessed with keeping Walter on his chain. I loved his interactions with Tio, and I loved seeing badass younger Tio in the flashback. This was my favorite episode of the season by far.

The dynamic between young Gus and his chicken brother ('If you're the cook, why do I need him?') also seems to mean that we should read differently Gus's reactions last season when Walt kept saying that he needed Jesse-- maybe Gus was more sympathetic to that than we thought.
Also the scene in the parking lot, when Mike pulled up in the spot behind Hank, was like sitcom-level hilarious misunderstanding/hijinx. That was awesome.
Gus is scared. He even made a facial expression! Also, Hank is entirely underrated by everyone on that show, except maybe by Marie. He's as smart as Walt, in his own way, and watching him & Walt underrate each other is great fun.
I preferred episode 7, but this episode was great.
Gus has "revenge is a dish best served cold" down to a fine art. If he ever has another friend, and if Walt and/or Jesse hurt that friend, then 15 years later they'd better watch their backs.
Agree totally on Hank. The finale of the show has got to be Hank vs. Walt, right? Christ I have no idea what will happen then and it's already terrifying.
Absolutely agree. I don't think Walt underrates Hank, except to the extent that Walt thinks he's smarter and cooler than everyone, Hank included.
It's going to be muy, muy interesting when Hank finally meets Heisenberg, the viper he has nursed in his bosom. He has to start suspecting something soon. He just needs to draw a Venn diagram of these sets:
--brilliant chemists in Albuquerque --people who need and have serendipitous windfalls --seemingly upstanding and mild-mannered citizens similar to Gus --people who are connected to Jesse Pinkman
