Penultimate episode. Meh. I didn't care much about Jesse's girlfriend one way or the other — she's just kinda dumb and has poor taste in men — but Gilligan and his crew may have finally figured out how to entertain me: making Jesse suffer. I'm guessing Jesse will make it to the end, though, while Todd won't (unless they've got a sequel series planned, and I wouldn't bet against the likelihood of that — the announced Saul series is supposed to be a prequel).
A lot of loose ends left to tie up in one episode. As slow and plodding as the pace has been thus far, I don't see how they can do it satisfactorily. Somehow tying the Gray Matter couple to Lydia and Todd would make a convenient shortcut.
