With that aim, no wonder they lost World War II.

I'd argue Walt's pride takes the top spot in his priority list. Higher than even Jesse and his family.

This. I understand why people want to keep ascribing a sort of warped nobility to Walt ("He did it for his family!" "He cares about Jesse!") but time and time again, it's his pride the usurps all, and that seems to stretch all the way back to his time at Grey Matter.

And we really can't say that "his desire to help Jesse is even greater than his desire to help himself or his family," if he's ordered a hit on Jesse specifically because he felt he was a danger to himself and his family. Walt's absolutely disproven that.

The Jesse / Walt dynamic was always one-sided. Walt's never displayed any kind of loyalty to Jesse that lasted longer than a scene or two, and / or that wasn't also to his ultimate gain. On the other hand he's manipulated, robbed and abused him every chance he could in order to get ahead.

Jesse cared for him like a father...but Walter saw him only as a son in the sense that he could be controlled as one.

Two episodes back - forcing myself not to read anything other than the topic title before I catch up here in a bit

Personally though, I think it's the best TV Drama that didn't air on HBO - and even including HBO shows it's easily top 5 / prob top 3.

I think tonight's episode might be the most highly anticipated one of Season 5. Vince Gilligan claims it's their best episode yet. HYPE

It's their anthology episode, and those are usually good for a laugh.

In the first segment Hank and Marie are cast as Adam and Eve and they relay the story of the Garden of Eden.

The second segment is Junior and Gomez as Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, reenacting the moon landing.

The closing segment stars Walt as Odysseus, making his way home to Ithaca / Albuquerque. Jesse cameos as a rapping leprechaun.
