A little early, butsendall the discussion for Season 3, Episode 11 here.
(Almost at the end!)
AMC (ended 2013)
Yeah Combo's meth is gone but we're wondering if it was Badger and Skinny Pete's meth they were supposed to sell. They could be trying to screw Jesse or could be getting pushed around.
|After re-watching I see that Jessie's new girlfriend has a son that deals and he's the kid that shot Combo. I wonder where the "Ice Station Zebra" associates comment by Skyler is going? Ice Station Zebra was a 1968 movie. (and a novel) What a wonderful circle this show can be, the writers are always way ahead of us and they don't slap us in the head with something; we have to be intelligent to enjoy this show; and it's worth every bruised brain cell.|
I think Saul set up Ice Station Zebra early on, when he started to laundry money for Walt. I thought it a humorous name at the time. Skyler didn't. She's all grown up now!
This was the transition episode for Skylar. It was foreshadowed when she offered to pay Hank's medical bills. And then when she telegraphed the gambling angle, through Walt, to Saul! Finally, at the dinner table, when she coyly giggles at Walt's comments. She's all in.
Jesse's in a tough place. The kid in the parking lot, when he reached to get the meth, didn't it sound like a gun cocking? Maybe it was my imagination.
But Gus is still my favorite character (Jesse's a close second!). Trying to maintain a control and sophistication. I hope to eventually see his underbelly.
