It’s amazing that we forgot that Walt was bloody from his fight with Jesse. When we saw blood on his counter, we thought that Walt’s cancer was acting up again or something. We found that Walt was just dealing with the aftermath of getting his ass beat. And it looks like this was exactly what Walt needed to be woken up to what a crazy douche he’s been this whole season. Walt Jr. got to see his cry and show remorse for his actions (even though Walt Jr. got a cover story as to what really happened). We were touched when Walt accidentally called his son “Jesse.” This was a good relationship moment in Walt Jr.’s eyes, but Walt doesn’t like that his son saw him in that moment of weakness.
It’s funny that Walt Jr. couldn’t get excited about his new PT Cruiser, when one of our sisters spent years begging and hoping for that exact car. She was sorely disappointed one Christmas when our father got her a toy one. Walt Jr. would be lucky, in her eyes. Ted, oh Ted, you dimwit. This is why you are in trouble in the first place: needing instant gratification and lacking wisdom. Of course Ted would buy himself a Mercedes with Skyler’s money. He decided to lawyer up and fight the government, rather than pay back what he stole. Skyler had to tell him that she forwarded him the cash to get him to stop being an idiot. We didn’t get to see how that turned out.
Gus actually took Jesse to Mexico. Man, that was fast. Jesse was able to pull off Walt’s cook on the first batch. Well, ok, he only got it 96% pure, but that was good enough. We were shocked. Not only that, but he wasn’t intimidated by the rival cartel members. His speech to the other chemist was fantastic, if possibly too risky. That wasn’t Jesse’s finest moment though: He turned out to be an unlikely essential ally to Mike and Gus. He saved Mike’s life and is now driving both Gus and Mike to a hospital (probably), because they might be dying. Mike is at least hurt. Oh yeah, and Gus managed to poison all the leaders of the rival cartel.
Jesse has come a long way this season. And with Walt’s remorse, he might be heading toward a redemptive end to the season where he gets a little of his old self back….maybe. We have friends who think that Walt will yet redeem himself, but we aren’t so optimistic. Isn’t this story about a downward spiral? This episode was eventful, funny, intense, fast paced, and it helped develop the characters even more. We think Ted needs to die. Just throwing that out there.
