Another benefit of less episodes over the final two "seasons", they're not BSing around. I'd guess the flashforward takes place around episode 7.. so they have a lot to get to before that happens.
I'm glad they jumped right into it, especially the last confrontation. Hank breaking down everything Walt's done, Walt admitting his cancer is back, tread lightly
, brilliant scene.
Couldn't have asked for anything more from the premiere.
