Re: Breaking Bad Season 4 Premiere Sun 10pm AMC
I loved the ending, a big part of me wished the show would have ended right there. Much of the story wrapped up, a few loose ends to leave you wondering where the future laid.
I'm not sure what season 5 will bring. It appears that Hank will have to eventually learn of Walt's doings, at least to some degree. I think the Cartel angle is done, Gus mentioned how everyone eas dead, so I don't think Walt gets anything from that side. The DEA, thru Hank appears to be the only angle left for Walt to deal with.
Bold (and not so bold) predictions:
Jessie & Walt will have a fall out, something will have to drive them apart. The poisoning of Brock seems obvious, but it could be another angle.
Hank catches wind of Jessie's involvement, and thru Jessie learns of Walt's involvement. while the DEA is coming down on Jessie, Hank keeps the Walt angle to himself, hoping to be 100% sure before bringing the heat.
Mike returns from Mexico, recovering from his gun shot wounds to help Walt keep Jessie out of trouble. Walt doesn't know that Jessie has clued Hank in that walt is involved, but discovers that towards the end of the series.
Walt devises a plan to both throw Hank off his trail and to put an end to Jessie. Walt thinks that he's killed Jessie, but there are questions remaining despite the complete dissapearance of Jessie. Walt either convinces hank he's clean, or Hank lets it slide as Walt convinces him he's out of the game and owes him one for taking care of his medical bills.
Flash forward either 5 or 18 years later, walt is working in the car wash, working in the office, presumably moved on with his life and doing well. A worker comes in after working on either his daughter or Walt, Jr's car and informs Walt that he's found a big back of "blue" in the trunk it appears that Jessie is back cooking, and like the air controller's situation with his daugher, Walt's life has now come full circle. Cut to credits.
