But, yeah, of course Walt's cancer is back. It's terminal lung cancer; he always just bought himself some time. And speaking of time: Vince Gilligan isn't going to waste it filling the screen with non-pertinent issues, especially in this precious, final stretch of storytelling opportunities.
And are you at all familiar with the story of Icarus and his father, Daedalus*? Ol' Daedalus tells his son to not fly too close to the sun. And, of course, what does Icarus do? He glides over, well, ALL...melting the wax from the wings that his father had crafted for him, resulting in his falling from the sky and drowning in the sea. (If you're trying to swap Jesse into the role of Icarus and Walt into that of Daedalus, you're doing it wrong.)Quote:

And yeah I know about the Icarus thing (mainly because of the painting where it shows no one caring about his fall and carrying on with their own thing) but anyways, I remember that, Walt talked about Gus slicing that guys throat not to scare Walt but because he knew the formula and basically got to close to the business. And the Walt must've hinted that's the same thing happening with Mike getting to close to his Meth:confused: am I slightly correct?
