Catch some of the details that you might have missed in season 2. Is there more rationale to this show than we think, or are we grasping for straws? The adults don’t feel as relatable as they were in season 1. And certain plot points have been left by the wayside. One listener begs the question; are we as an audience ok?
The season finale is here and it was a hit and a miss. There were some strong plot choices that we’re looking forward to continuing in the next season. But characters are making choices that seem, well, out of character. The women at Lottie’s compound have some hard decisions to make. Walter continues to be an entertaining enigma. We still don’t know who the pit girl is, but we’re running out of teenagers.
Have you ever felt blue? Jesse Bruce Pinkman gets dyed blue in Down. The Smurf look is a not-so-subtle nod to the rising tensions between Skyler and Walt and the way in which Jesse himself is feeling. It’s pretty clear by this point in the show that Walt can’t keep his mouth shut, and thereby alienates Skyler. Pete and Courtney call into question Walt and Jesse’s belief that they are owed by their own families. Your hosts will sort through the emotional turmoil in the hardest episode of Breaking Bad to watch.
Did you feel like there was a scene cut from the latest episode? Other people noticed that too. Check out some buzzy fan theories in this episode of feedback. Is there a Downton Abbey baby subplot on the way? Does the deck of cards give us more clues into the mythos? Did the Wilderness choose Javi first?
By the end of the episode, Jim is 100% sure that this show is going to reveal supernatural forces. A.Ron keeps it leal (ifykyk) and still defends team science. As the plot thickens in preparation for the season finale next week, we get a look into how the Wilderness is haunting the reunited adult Yellowjackets. It seems that not everyone is going to make it to the next season. Is Lottie a danger to herself and the other women? What is Walter’s end goal? And Jeff, what are you doing?
Courtney and Pete connect the dots of the subtle details in Bit By a Dead Bee. Walt takes notice of a painting that is mundane in appearance, but rich in sub-textual story. The very same painting appears in several episodes across Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul. As Walt further traumatizes his family with his “fugue state”, Hank descends on Jesse with an avenging force. Could Walt turn this boat around? What does the painting mean? And will Wendy ever get her root beer?
What has Walter been up to? And did he have anything to do with the discovery of Adam’s body? Is the Wilderness trying to move Coach Ben out of the way? And you can’t ask about Caligula anymore, ok?? Find out who is on the other side of that phone number and what it means when A.Ron says, “Goats are mouth curious.”
It’s time to pull back into the back of the semi-truck and put FEENY into hiatus until it’s time for our next shadowy flight through the action TV of yesteryear. Before we go, we recap an all-time classic Knight Rider episode, the feature length season 2 premiere, “Goliath”. It’s got everything. The evil Garthe Knight, African warlords, conniving widows, menacing science montages, and Michael and KITT getting legitimately jacked up in a scene that traumatized me as a youth. Can a millennial ever hope to understand the love between a Gen-X boy and his increasingly magical Trans-Am? Find out on this very special season finale of MR. FEENY!
The Yellowjackets reunite at Lottie’s Wellness Retreat Center, but there’s no wellness to be found. As each woman goes about her “therapy” in the present, the show takes us back to the 90s to show us why they need therapy. Misty is a lovesick murderer. Shauna has had enough of Lottie. And everyone gets suspicious about Crystal’s disappearance.
Appearances (and disappearances) can be deceiving. Do you know how many episodes Tuco Salamanca appears in on Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul? For a character with so little screen time, he leaves a lasting impression. Join Pete and Courtney as they say goodbye to Tuco and hello to Don Hector in their discussion of “Grilled.”
