Not Going to Die (of the Characters Who Might)
He’s the star of the show. They’re not going to off him.
While I do think Jesse might meet his demise at some point, I don’t think it’s right now. Although the writers bringing him and Walter back together only to kill him off would catch a lot of viewers off guard… But no, not happening. Side note: I re-watched the “Breaking Bad” pilot last night, and no character has improved as much as Jesse. He’s virtually insufferable in the early episodes, because the writers made him too much of a wigger.
Why did the agents guarding Hank’s family let her smoke a cigarette on a wide-open balcony in last week’s episode? That bugged me a lot, particularly because the agent warned her not to become too exposed, and he evidently forgets what he said seconds later. Skyler’s being hunted by Gus, and I bet she’ll be investigated in I F**ked Ted’s (hilarious, totally deserved) death, but she’s too important to be whacked. For now.
I’ve read dozens of theories about Brock and the ricin, and I haven’t been satisfied with any of the Walt or Gus theories. I don’t think Walt would intentionally poison a small child (that would make him the most evil Good Guy in the history of TV, and I don’t think Gilligan would, or even should, go there), and the Gus Did It people need too many things to go right to make their conspiracy believable. I think Brock was just being a stupid kid trying to emulate Jesse (not unlike when Jesse’s younger brother, Jake, smoked a joint to impress his older sibling in season one’s “Cancer Man”), and the entire thing’s a total red herring.
That said, he still may die in the episode, but it will be from his own trying-to-look-cool stupidity, not murder.
If any of the “good guys” are going to get murdered in “Face Off,” Hank seems the best bet — but I don’t think it’s going to happen. He’s too important for the Who Is Heisenberg? mystery that the show will need to drive its fifth and final season. Which will gain extra traction when…
