Anyway, that whole know your enemy conversation Hank had in Fresno really foreshadows part of that scene.
I was the one that said this, and I admit it was an overreaction to the person who stated that they were rooting for walt because his actions are only about his family. It's obviously more complex than one or the other and I shouldn't have used 100% in my thought.
that being said, tonight's episode showed a bit of both - walt offering up money to save hank and saving skyler from prison were quite family-centric moves, while his confession to jesse was very much the opposite. can't wait for the rest of the series.
