Breaking Bad- Bug

Did that just happen? Sure, it was a long time coming and their relationship was probably building toward this explosion of frustration, but we were still shocked. Jesse and Walt beat the crap out of each other. Jesse technically won, but he used a sucker sweep of the leg (when Walt’s back was turned) in order to do it, so we’re calling it a tie. Plus, Walt is an old man with cancer.

Walt’s paranoia and Jesse’s failure to poison Gus, coupled with Walt’s putting a tracking device on Jesse’s car, have split the pair for now. For good? Only time will tell, but we hope not.

We never thought that it would be Jesse eating at Gus’ house, but Walt and Jesse have really switched places this season. Jesse is the cool one trying to keep Walt out of trouble, and Walt is the irresponsible mess who keeps getting his butt kicked (first by Mike, now by Jesse). Walt is the disposable one, and Jesse is the one Gus needs, now that he is giving into the cartel.

Hank is a much better detective than he is a singer. (Who doesn’t know the words to “Eye of the Tiger”?) Hank deduced that Gus’ main chicken distribution center is where Gus is cooking his meth. Walt called Mike and told him, so Mike and Jesse had to make sure the warehouse was clean. The rival cartel started shooting Gus’ employees. Mike saved Jesse’s life. Jesse had to watch a guy get shot in the head. Gus walked out, offering himself, and the sniper backed off. They want Gus alive and Gus’ operation. It’s no good without him running it.

A troubling event came to Skyler’s attention. Ted Beneke, her old boss, is getting into trouble for not paying his taxes and he’s facing prison time. And if the IRS looks too closely, it will start looking into Skyler too. Skyler, with the fake business and bags of money under her house, remember? So Skyler rushed into Ted’s office with her boobs hanging out, pretended to be stupid, and convinced the IRS agent that the irregularities were due to her incompetence. Being a pretty woman has its perks, and not just the obvious ones. It’s always nice when you’re underestimated.

But this is only a stalling tactic. Ted still needs to pay the IRS everything he owes, plus fines, but he doesn’t have the money and already has a lien on his house. We predicted (and a preview of the next episode confirmed) that this will lead to Skyler giving Ted some of Walt’s money, and we don’t think Walt is going to be too happy about that, even if it’s for his good as well.

Jesse was then invited to Gus’ house for a talk. Jesse thought about poisoning the stew but realized that he would have to eat it for two hours with Gus. Gus wanted to know if Jesse could cook Walt’s meth. Jesse freaked out, thinking that this meant Gus was going to kill Walt. Jesse said, “If you’re going to kill Mr. White, you’re going to have to kill me too.” Aww. But what Gus really wanted was to cave into the rival cartel and stop the war.

The rival cartel wants Walt’s formula, and Gus wants Jesse to go down to Mexico and give it to them by training the Mexicans to cook Walt’s meth. After the trust died between Jesse and Walt, Walt told Jesse to go to Mexico, screw up, and wind up in a barrel somewhere. That’s what started the physical altercation. At the end of the fight, Jesse made it clear that he never wanted to see Walt again.

Where is this season going? Seriously?
