Notable Music – “DLZ” (On Youtube) by TV On the Radio (On Facebook) – You know how I love a lot of Breaking Bad music? This song is in my top 3. The lyrics are so wonderful. Never you mind, death professor.

Notable Shots –
You might not be able to spot it in my small screenshot, but all through this scene, there was a star shaped light shining from the tap.
Jesse as seen through his glass frying pan, breaking eggs into it. I’ve got to say, that frypan is totally something Jesse would buy.

Snoskred Notes –
Again we start with the teddy bear but this time, we see broken windshields, and also body bags one of which has a suspiciously baby bump shape to it.
I do not want to spoil as to why – if you know, you know. If not, you will know after episode 13. Not long to wait. But I would like to mention, back in the days when this was going on live, the teddy bear and such scenes were driving people *batty*.
On the interwebz, there was so much speculation after this episode – everything from Walt being terrible at home repairs and the new hot water system exploding, to a drug cartel being responsible, to the people in the body bags being Jesse and Jane bringing over a baby gift at the wrong time..
I think the Skyler scenes say a lot here. I feel like she is beginning to realise she is not really a fan of Walt – this current Walt and possibly the original Walt. The eye rolling at the breakfast table while he is working hard to put his house back in order.. the way she is looking at him. It is like.. who is this person I am married to?
So she seeks attention from Ted, someone who has shown her attention in the past – albeit unwanted then, according to her conversation with Marie about Mr Grabby Hands.
