It's another example of this show forcing plot points to happen at the expense of the characters that the show has spent so much energy on building and developing.
I agree and I don't.

Mike wanted Saul to do it. Saul is a coward (or just really ****ing smart). Jesse offered. I buy that Mike didn't want Jesse to do it to the extent that he didn't want Jesse to get caught. I like Mike's consistent fatherly protection of Jesse.

The only other option was Walt.

But, it did feel strained and for plot's sake more than I would have liked. But the logic holds up, I think.

There's no real reason Saul couldn't have done it himself. Saul could have sent Bill Burr's character, even. If Jessie and Walt hadn't been in Saul's office at that exact time then Saul would have taken care of it. So, yeah. Strained.

I think you can have some poetic license when the results are the kind of scenes that book-ended last week's episodes.

I have to say I've seen just about enough of mopey Skyler though.

Last episode of 2012 is next week. These 8 weeks flew by. Really sucks that they decided to split the season.

Around the NFL season at least...

Surely I'm not the only one that noticed they stopped the show for football?

It's really showing the decline of both Walt's morality as well as his logic/reason. He was a scientist. He was cool and calculated. Now, though, he can't even handle to hear someone give him the truth without flipping out, getting emotional, and doing something stupid.

I do agree with the other person who said that it's sometimes hard to know when Walt is being just crazy and when he's crazy like a fox. This character trait, though, has always been a part of him. Think back to his insane ass ramming of the two thugs with the Aztec just as Jesse was about to try to kill them.
This is probably the only time I see Walter doing something just for revenge and with no real, logical benefits (i.e., protecting himself).

The time Walt ran over the two thugs he did it because he wanted Jesse's help in cooking. This time, however, the kill was pure crazy and it signals the shift in Walt's character.

What's not great is seeing the same scene play out with Skyler 2742 times this season. Hence the comment about being tired of seeing mopey Skyler.

You're supposed to be sick of Skyler. Walt's sick of Skyler. She's his wife. She's doing what a wife would do. But, yeah, it's not enjoyable. It's probably feeding into Walt's increased view of himself as a larger than life folk-hero. He's king in that world. He wants to be in that world because he's feared and respected. It's an escape.
