    Having listened to that Spoilery Cranston interview, I am now fairly sure the final shot of Season 4 will be:
    The Ricin cigarette, in Walt's house.
    That's certainly how he made it sound in the interview. I can't think of any other "object" that has significance right now.

    Not sure about "external shot"... I was thinking the camera in the kitchen/living room, zooming in slowly to the bedroom, with the cig on the nightstand maybe.

    It blows my mind how different from Gus Giancarlo Esposito is in an interview.

    I mean, it's not like Bryan Cranston is a lot like Walt, either. But seeing Giancarlo Esposito in an interview is like looking at and listening to a complete stranger. My mind futilely tries to gap the disparity by simply making me very uncomfortable until I stop watching.

    Ugh, half a week to go to find out for sure.

    It just seems too convoluted for this show.
    I agree.

    Even given how far Walt has gone, it seems really far fetched that he would poison an innocent kid just to get a shot at Gus.

    Also, I doubt they would deliberately have all that slight of hand crap that would deliberately be made hard to notice unless you rewatch something over and over just to catch it.

    I think it fits just fine. Not that I'm sure it's going to happen. I guess I don't see anything wrong with it as a theory.
    We also don't know for sure Brock's been poisoned with ricin, for one. Walt just needed the ricin to disappear to plant the seed in Jesse. And we all know Walt does whatever needs to be done to protect himself and his family.

    I think my biggest gripe with it is that it ruins the entire arc of the season. Walt has been powerless since the first episode. We have watched him fret and squirm in this situation that is completely out of his control. Since he is a control freak to begin with that added so much tension to what was happening. The ending to Crawl Space was so good because it was the height of Walt being powerless. He was so out of options that he just starts laughing maniacally. We see that continue in End Times when his only choice to protect his family is to send them to the DEA, and then he just sits in his house waiting to die. That culminates in the scene with Jesse when he pulls the gun to his forehead, and then after that tension breaks Walt finds some confidence again because he got his partner back. I find it hard to believe that somehow he suddenly became empowered, hatched some insane plan that relies on all sorts of lucky breaks to fall into place in a 12 hour period, and then puts on the best acting job of his life to fool Jesse. Besides a few moments of brilliance, the entire series has relished in the fact that he lacks a poker face and is terrible at hiding things. If they morph Walt from a bumbling, self absorbed, wannabe mastermind into a master schemer and playmaker in one episode using events that happened off camera I will be very dissapointed.

    ... and after typing that all out I have realized that I drank way too much coffee this morning.

    Does he really lack a poker face, though? Let's go all the way to Season 1's literal poker game and the bluff he pulled off. It's not like that scene was extraneous. That may actually be one of the most significant scenes in all four seasons of this show.

    Yes, he couldn't keep the stack of lies over lies from toppling onto Skyler, but he also lives with her and every change in his behavior is immediately noticed. He did a pretty outstanding job of putting one over on Mike last season, and we both know Mike isn't someone who's easily fooled. He's kept Hank at bay now for god knows how long, who also has a gift for sniffing out bullshit (though I'm constantly wondering if Hank actually does secretly suspect something).

    We also know that when Walt is pressed against a wall with no way out he becomes his most dangerous and his most brilliant. It's not about finding empowerment, it's about having no other options.

    i just rewatched the patdown scene from last week a bunch to see if i agreed with the people who think there was a switch there. i just don't see it at all. the guard puts his hand in his pocket hastily afterward, sure, but there is no possible way he got cigarettes into jesse's pocket considering he clearly has nothing in his hands when he starts and he keeps his hands on jesse pretty much the whole time the patdown is going on. i dunno.
