Saul: Or he got it loud and clear and figured out it's a setup, the kid is not as dumb as you think.
Much like Gustavo Fring, Walt has a fatal flaw that clouds his judgement and leads to his downfall. In Gus' case it was his intense hatred towards the cartel and Hector Salamanca that caused him to act uncharacteristically irrational. And for Walt it is his inability to view Jesse as anything but the careless and incompetent meth-head he joined up with in the pilot. Jesse has proven that he is actually a pretty smart guy this seasons, as evidenced by his role in destroying Gus' laptop and robbing the train, but Walt still views him as the same idiot that mixes chili powder with his meth; and it is starting to catch up to him.
