Say My Name

Well that was a depressing episode...for Mike anyway. I really enjoyed it because 1) ever shot was gorgeous, 2) it's created the path for the next 9 episodes.

We all know what happened so here are some things I wish would happen in the upcoming 9:

  • Jesse approaches Skylar to work together and get the kids safe. He has a thing for protecting kids, she needs some sort of light at the end of her tunnel (that sounded dirty).
  • Todd gets his prison connections to help with the people on the list that are currently imprisoned. This was kind of hinted at in the preview, but I think any connection Walt continues with Todd is bad news (which means good tv).
  • I hope the list includes: Jack Shepard, Kate Austen, John Locke, Sayid Jarrah, etc.
  • Hank or Marie find some blue meth in Walt Jr.'s room and tell Skylar and Walt. That would be a giant slap in the face to Walt. Walt Jr. is already depressed and having an identity crisis, so it wouldn't be a stretch for him to end up experimenting with drugs. Then, we can have Walt Jr yell, "I learned it from watching YOU!" and it would be true.
  • I want Walt to cry. For real cry though.
For some reason I absolutely loved the scene at the end of Say My Name where Walt ran back to shoot Mike. It was an old man's frantic run and I seem to forget sometimes that Walt is in his 50s now. He's still active and everything but he's also a man less than a year out from having what doctor's though was incurable cancer. I don't know if it was on purpose, or that's just the way Bryan Cranston runs, but I thought it was a good touch.

In addition, Aaron Paul hasn't had as much to do this season but he still kills it in every scene. 

RIP Mike. You will be missed.
