Breaking Bad- short Hermanos discussion

A short one this time, because it’s labor day weekend and we have things to do. But we had time to catch Breaking Bad and True Blood.

Hank is probably going to die this season. Everything he has ever done is leading up to confrontation, then death. We can’t wait. If he ends up NOT dying, we will be disappointed. Harsh, but true. Walt has staved off death a little longer, because he is still in remission.

We were not digging the Breaking Bad flashback opening. We remember who Hector is, and any new information could have been given in real time. This is one of Breaking Bad’s weakest openings, but that’s not saying much, because they are mostly awesome.

Gus is one smooth criminal. Talking with the DEA, we wished this guy were a) not fictional, b) born in the U.S., and c) an honest man so that he could become the greatest president we have ever had. Anyone who can think on their feet like that and stay so cool can do anything. This episode was about "control," and Gus has it.

The rift between Jesse and Walt grew a little more this time, and we also saw that Jesse has been taking good care of Andrea and her young charge. We got enough Mike and Saul to keep us happy too. Those characters had better stay alive for a while.

Hector is such a petulant little jerk, and he was even colder and more despicable when he was young and could talk. We prefer Gus, who seemed so young and human in the flashback. At least he had a heart once before he became a box cutter-wielding sociopath. The flashback went on a little long, but it delivered in the end. After all this waiting, we had better get the most eventful last three episodes of all time.

Episode Grade: B+
