Ah, ok. First instinct was naturally some kind of dispute somewhere. 16 episodes sounds longer than a regular season so I'll be curious whether we get that lump sum or it gets split up. Either way, even after 5 years, I know I'll likely still want more Breaking Bad.
In the last episode, found it interesting the parallel the writers are doing. Walt and Jesse are an unlikely committed partnership much like what Gus and his partner were so is this perhaps the reason why Gus has taken such an interest in Jesse and, thus, wants to see if he can pry him away from Walt? As a sidenote, I wonder if Mike ever starts wondering about his job security due to the possible rising apprentice.
