S3 spoiler--Walt gets a new lab partner...

Post by Ellis D. Tripp on Mon Oct 26, 2009 3:05 pm

It looks like Walt will be working with a new "apprentice" next season:

http://ausiellofiles.ew.com/2009/10/23/breaking-bad-scoop-damages-creep-is-walts-new-assistant/

Described as an eager student and a brilliant chemist, Gale is the antithesis of Jessie (Aaron Paul) in that he’s more interested in the magic of chemistry than getting rich.



This could get REAL interesting.

Assuming that Walt will keep cooking in S3 (and that seems a pretty safe bet if he is getting an assistant), he is going to need a source for precursors now that he and Jesse used up all of their methylamine in their 4-day marathon cook session. Perhaps Gale will provide a business connection to purchase/divert the needed chemicals without the risk of another midnight break-in at the local chem supplier?

If Gale is truly interested in the "magic of chemistry", I can't see him being content cooking meth for that long, though. Methamphetamine is a very simple/boring synthesis as far as organic chem goes, and wouldn't hold the interest of someone more interested in the chemistry than getting rich. Somebody like that would naturally be drawn to more challenging projects (like the total synthesis of LSD, perhaps?), or even inventing completely new compounds ala Shulgin.

Wouldn't it be interesting if Gale was actually an employee of "Grey Matter Technologies"? Could make for some interesting future story development...

I see this as a rival/enemy of Jesse probably. Whatever happens, it is an exciting development.

My guess is this is Gus' guy who he wants Walt to show the ropes to and teach him everything he knows about cooking the highest grade shit possible. This guy will then work for Gus and Walt will be out. Or will he? Either way, I agree, real interesting development here.

If you Google Gale Breaking Bad is the sixth result is
"YouTube - Lee Ellis/ Breaking Bad Audition/ Gale Strum character"
but "This video has been removed by the user. "

FWIW, there is a picture of Gale as part of a "character collage" here:

So that's what he's going to look like. Cool man.

Just read this properly for the first time.

Speculation: Gale being 'interested in the chemistry' is Gale learning the formula for Gus for when Walt's gone.

My response to that would be a definite yes.

Gus has already stated to the cartel that they can do what they want with him after he has finished his business with him in 3 months time. Just enough time for him to show Gale the ropes. Plus I believe Walt would be much too expensive for Gus to keep on board. And he would be jeopardizing his relationship with the cartel if he did not follow through on his promise to them.

Spoiler:
As Brian Cranston has said in an interview. The end will probably not be good for Walt. He will most likely die at the end of this thing.

There is another possibility--Gus is setting up his own superlab in an attempt to COMPETE WITH the cartel.

He didn't seem all that happy with the cartel guys during his "veggie tray" gathering at the chicken farm a few episodes ago, so maybe he is trying to strike out on his own, not needing the cartel as a supplier of product?

As far as Walt goes, with that kind of facility and access to chemicals, he could be turning out a lot more than meth. Synthetic cocaine/heroin, maybe? That would help put the screws to the cartel boys as well....

Hmm. That's an interesting twist on things. And I have a strange feeling after reading the brief upcoming episode summaries that you may be on to something. I've changed my mind now. I think Gus is going to stick his neck out for Walt but at an expense.
