i saw someone right outside the house wearing a happy birthday hat with some balloons across from a garage that is close to me, and i'm thinking 'cool' but then he walked off, and i remember 'i don't know this man'
people were giving alcohol to each other in a dusty alley... this would make sense if they were underage but i think they were like in their late 40s so i don't know
i saw someone wearing a shirt with the yellow pages logo on it
Two parts because there's too much to talk about. We're almost done folks!
We get a quick retread of the flash-forwards with an interesting contrast to the pilot with Walt surrounded by family and friends. Walt got the excitement that Hank proposed, but with the next cut of him alone in his dark abandoned house, you can tell he misinterpreted what Hank meant vastly. While the difference is abrupt, the path he took wasn't worth it. Now I don't know how Walt managed from here on

Exactly one year later. A retrospective. Are your thoughts still the same as when it originally aired?
I won't lie. I do tend to flip-flop between liking it a lot and holding criticism. The neo-nazis as antagonists lean more towards stereotypical than dynamic, and Walt having to go up against them kind of muddles the point of his graduation to the despicable guy he is. Perhaps the intention is to blind those of the audience even further who still believe his actions are justified.
