Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Lydia Rodarte-Quayle (credit only)


Walt is still trying to convince Hank - and to a lesser extent Marie - that they should do nothing and just let nature take its course. He's no longer involved in any criminal activity and will be dead in a few months from his cancer. They're not very receptive to his ideas but when they get home they find that Walt has recorded a video confession admitting to everything - and naming Hank as the mastermind behind it all. Jesse meanwhile has been released from jail. He said nothing to the police or Hank about his business with Walt but seems completely lost. In a difficult meeting with Walt, he agrees to acquire a new identity and start a life in Alaska. As he awaits Saul's contact who will provide him with what he needs, he comes to the realization that it was Walt who tried to kill Brock. Written by garykmcd

I hate you Vince Gilligan
25 August 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This season (5B) is back to the great form of pre-5A episodes. There were clever twists in this episode and the "confession" was brilliant.

I'm glad we are not seeing any of the predictability of S5A (which was overall a little weak, imho) - now the downside is the realisation that there are ONLY 5 MORE EPISODES left.

This can't be!! I am already getting withdrawal symptoms! I think Vince Gillian is the evil monster who has got us all hooked on this series, only to go cold-turkey on us just next month! Someone should threaten to send him to Belize ...

I'm clinging onto the the faint hope that the communication that the end of the series would be in 2013 was a foil ...
