but remember earlier on, saul was like "you okay with this? him handling the business?" and walt goes "yeah, he can handle the business. and i'll handle him." walter white has this warped view that he's still master of it all when he really isn't necessary. jesse can cook. mike can do business. he still sees himself as a king, noticeably when he brought up "this is less than with gus" (i can't spell his last name).
Walter wants to be the boss. It's his formula, and he's the genius chemist. He's working with Mike because he needs Mike's distribution network. If anyone is expendable it's Jessie, he's just a glorified lab assistant.
"just because you killed jesse james, don't make you jesse james" pretty much sums up the reality of the situation. great line. i don't think walt has the capacity to kill jesse anyway. when has he ever shot someone? stabbed someone? killed anyone directly? 4 seasons ago
Aside from Gus I guess he hasn't killed anyone since season three when he ran down the two dealers and then shot them. I think he is capable of killing Jessie though, I think that he's a much more dangerous character this season, and that everything that he is doing is calculated twords his own goals. I don't think that he will kill Jessie, I think that the threat was his way of telling Jessie to stay in his place.
yeah yeah walt's diminishing mental health blah blah gonna die later on. i do hope he dies. at first i thought this change in him would be great, but then i realized he's scary for no reason. he barely has money and he has literally no power. i don't see why people are intimidated by him at all.
I disagree. I don't think his mental health is diminishing, and I don't think he's scary for no reason. I think he has become Jesse James, or that he will be soon. The not having any money thing was just an outward excuse to keep going, he just made over a hundred grand and he owns a carwash, he could quit any time he wants. Everything that he has done this season has been coldly calculated, and all of it is working. Wether the other characters realize it or not, they all answer to him.
