Snoskred Notes –

“No Más” is Spanish for “no more”, which is Walt’s current stance on meth-cooking. He says he is done. Do we believe him? Well, no. 🙂

Make sure to listen to the podcast for many interesting tales – Bryan Cranston directed this episode and he has a lot of stories to tell about it.

This is the second time we have seen Pollos as a text message. It was seen previously in “Mandala

So who are the Cousins? Well, you remember Tuco – back in Season 2 when he had kidnapped Walt and Jesse, how he mentioned his cousins were coming to pick everyone up? That would be these guys. And it seems, from the drawing they add to the wall, they have a bone to pick with Walt.

People have a lot of questions about the Santa Muerte thing – Santa Muerte is a goddess of death, venerated throughout Mexico and more recently, the American Southwest. She is prayed to for life-saving miracles and death to enemies alike. The Breaking Bad site has a photo gallery with more info.

Control freak Carmen – who says, right after taking the mike from the Automatic A kid, you can say anything and everything that is on your mind – except that you think you should get an automatic A, apparently! and also you should stand up, and keep it secular!

Are we as mad at Skyler as Walt Jr is? I certainly understand her reasoning and her desire to get the heck out of this relationship. Is this the right way to go about it? I’m not sure, but she is the one living it, so she gets to do it her way.

Awesome performance by Jere Burns as the Group Leader. A heart breaking story of killing his daughter.
