Do all of you still find yourselves rooting for Walt despite what he did?
I think i mostly stopped rooting for Walt after he let Jane die in S2 despite whatever justifications he had. I dont think I stopped sympathizing with him till this episode though, but thats mostly bc of Cranston being a GOAT level actor in this series. Also, mostly just been fascinated with his story and how far he would go.
As twisted as it sounds, I kinda wish the kid died even though Walt used a "milder" poison. Even if he only intended to "just get him sick" itd be interesting to see how close his justification scenes with after the plane crash would mirror or contrast how he processed doing such a terrible thing.
Im pretty sure S5 has to be contain these main story arcs.
1. we know the Cartel never could Kill Gus bc of "who he was." Walt never knew about this. This has to become a central part of S5. If the cartel wouldnt kill him without being scared, Walts gonna get got or really close to it.
2. Hank v Walt as Hank continues to probe around and has to eventually find out. Also, they might be completely effed bc Gus was killed meeting a known cartel guy, and if they examine Gus's computers and stuff at Los Pollos, he has video surveillance of Walt and Jesse all over the place stored on his computer, unless they are gonna say bc the cameras were destroyed, then that destroyed the stuff on his computer
3. Jesse v Walt, likely concluding with Jesse finding out or figuring out Walt poisoned Brock. Possibly culminating with Jesse or Walt killing the other. Would be an emotional wreck to watch Walt kill Jesse, especially given that Jesse is practically more his son than Walt Jr.
