P.S. I'm trying to ask the question without giving too much away :-b

Yeah, the genius showed up at Gale's apartment in front of witnesses. I figured something bad was going to happen to him because the cleaner (Mike?) made a comment about it.

I think this thread is a spoiler safe zone. It's assume that anyone reading it has already seen the latest episode. At least it should be. In an interview this week on grantland.com (which, by the way, is the best thing to happen to sports journalism since...well, a long time) the show's creator answered a question about that murder:
The audience has every bit as valid an opinion as I do, but for what it's worth, I think what happened was that Victor made two mistakes: He let himself get seen at the house, and we can tell from the early going that that seems to worry Mike. The other thing is, it's a bit of an affront to Gus that Victor added insult to injury by thinking he could cook Walt's formula. This is a guy, we learned from the teaser, who wants the best. He doesn't want just some well-intentioned schmo who's not a chemist cooking the formula

Additionally, I think it was cathartic for Gus. He wanted to kill Walt or Jesse, but knew he couldn't, so he went for the next best thing. Under normal circumstances, Victor's mistakes probably wouldn't have been enough to get him killed, but after everything went down with Gale, Gus felt compelled.

Gus seemed pretty happy to roll with Gale's 96% purity... :-B

Not just the way that he killed the guy, but the way that he just gashed his artery and pulled his head up so as to intentionally spray Walt and Jesse with the blood was just amazing.

Has to be my favorite scene of the series so far.

They have a special way of dragging a single scene on for an entire hour, don't they? It adds a realistic subtlety to it, but the end of the show really creeps up on me and I always feel like not much actually happened. This is how it goes when I don't simply wait for the season to be over and watch all the episodes in one week...
