  •  VG talked about that on Talking Bad. They made up (9+ / 0-)

    a good-sounding reason for the watch being left there. It's a meth money watch, and Walt's letting go of that, and time is coming to an end for him.

    Which fits.

    But in reality, it's a continuity thing. They shot and aired the scene of Walt in the cafe earlier in the season, buying the weapons in the parking lot.

    And Walt wasn't wearing the watch. So the watch had to go in the scene they aired later that was supposedly right before he walked into that cafe.

    •  I was surprised (6+ / 0-)

      that they seemingly cared so much about "continuity". I had noticed that Skyler's hair was nothing like her original dirty blonde hair when the flashback of her on the phone with Walt happened 3 (?) weeks ago.

      I chose not to quibble about it then. How hard would it have been to get that right?

      •  Continuity is a big, complicated thing in TV (4+ / 0-)

        and movies, because they shoot scenes out of order. They have people in charge of continuity, to watch all the little details and make sure if you wore a watch in the scene inside the cafe, you also wore it outside.

        •  Yes. Scripties and Costume and Props (3+ / 0-)

          are all responsible for that kind of thing.

          Hair&make up are notorious for keeping shit notes and not doing continuity books, in movies as well as television.  

          They usually just try to hit up other depts. for notes/pics when it becomes an issue.

          So, you see a lot of that pink lipstick/red lipstick back and forth when they do reshoots a month later....even though every stitch of clothes and the entire set are redone perfectly to make it match.
