I can’t help it. I need to play the Breaking Bad prediction game again, it’s so much fun!
Last weeks epsiode left me more frustrated than anything, how could they leave the viewers hanging like that for a week? But that’s Breaking Bad for you, and it’s one of the reasons the shows is loved so much.
OK before I get into what I think is going to happen, I want to say something about the preview for the up-coming episode: Hearing Skylar’s voice mail to Walt, does it sound like there is a glimmer of hope that Walt will not be coming back? Does she have a feeling that something went bad for Walt when he left the A-1 Car Wash so abruptly?
Also, I’ve been reading other predictions on-line and a few bloggers have been using IMBd to find some clues of the upcoming episodes. I never thought of doing that, and I wasn’t planning on doing that, but since I have seen the actors that are possibly appearing in this weeks episode, entitled “Ozymandias,” I will add that to my prediction as well.
Hank and Gomez will be killed. Walt tries to have the Nazi’s spare Hank’s life, but there is no way the Nazi’s will leave a Federal agent alive, it’s to risky. Hank and Gomez’ bodies will be destroyed by acid, at the suggestion of Todd. Todd was present when Walt destroyed Drew Sharp’s body and assisted with Mike’s body. This does not bode well with Walt. He feels responsible for Hank’s death and starts to feel the effects of the deaths he has caused when he entered the meth game. It is possible Walt is visited by “ghosts.”
The Nazi’s allow Jesse to live and they use him to cook the blue meth with Walt. Jesse’s emotional state is shattered worse than before because Walt keeps “getting away with it.” He has nothing but fear and angst for Walt.
This is the episode Skylar and the kids leave town. When Walt does not return her calls she realizes that Walt is in trouble or possibly dead.
When Hank doesn’t come home nor call Marie back after numerous attempts, she calls the DEA asking where Hank is. They have no clue to what he has been up to nor his whereabouts. She panics and contacts Skylar and tells her what Hank told her about capturing Walt. Skylar decides its time for her and the kids to leave for protection. Marie comes to her senses and tells the DEA the secret of Walt and of Hank’s investigation. The DEA now are searching for Walt and Hank, first going to the Whites home questioning Skylar. When they leave Skylar contacts Saul to change her identity.
Todd tells his uncle how to dispose of the bodies by using acid and large plastic barrels. Jesse is drained emotionally and asks for the Nazis to kill him as he can’t handle Walt getting away with all he has done. Jesse tells the Nazi’s about Walt’s money hidden in the desert. During the cook of blue ice, Walt concocts an explosion that enables him to escape and kill a few of the Nazis but Jesse refuses to leave with him.
Walt calls Saul and he is informed that his family has left and his house has been seized by the Feds.
End of “Ozymandias”
I do want to add one more thing. I’ve been reading about the colors and the meanings in Breaking Bad, and pink being associated with death. There is speculation that Holly, Walt and Skylar’s baby daughter, will be killed by the end of the season because she is always wearing pink and sometimes dressed as a teddy bear (like the bear that was in the White’s pool after the plane explosion). I can’t disagree that pink is associated with death in Breaking Bad, but there is no way Holly is going to be killed. That really gets into dark territory, even for Breaking Bad. What I think Holly represents is loss of innocence and the death of her mother and father, figuratively. They are not the same people they were when the show started, and Holly will never know them they way Walt Jr did. Holly is the only true innocent character left in the show. (BTW – When Walt was carrying Holly at the car wash and he saw Saul was there, where did Walt put her? In the office all alone? Do they have an on-site nanny at A-1 Car Wash?)
