These last two episodes were directed by Vince Gilligan, who says he had some serious struggles in particular with the Walt/Jesse scene in this episode.

Again, one of these episodes I had to watch a few times to get this done, sometimes I would get so lost in what I was watching I would put the laptop aside and totally forget all about it.
