  1. First, the artist acts as god by concocting a world, or a system for generating beauty.

    okay, so VGilligan said that Jesse definitely shot Gale. That doesn’t mean that he killed Gale, necessarily (eg. Hank)
    simple as that.

    “”Wait, who would get a last second change of heart and shoot next to him?” Realistically, you wouldn’t fire at all.”
    Well, there’s always the scene in Animal House when Flounder shot away from the horse … :)

    The problem is – if Jesse wasn’t going to shoot Gale then why pull the trigger period? It doesn’t make sense.
    I agree that originally I thought “Did he shoot him?” because of the camera movement, but then realized, “Wait, who would get a last second change of heart and shoot next to him?” Realistically, you wouldn’t fire at all. You would just point the gun down and probably bail very quickly. And obviously we heard the gunshot.
    So if Gilligan has a change of heart himself (ironically), then he has to either say “It was just a warning shot to Gale” which is pretty weak storytelling in my mind. Or he has to have the gunshot not have been Jesse’s, but instead the lacky who left Walt to go try to stop Jesse. And that would mean that Jesse has been shot. Though, according to Walt yelling over the phone, it didn’t seem like the lacky would have time to reach Jesse.
