INSIDE THE HOUSE
Montage! Walt and Jesse change into their yellow hazmat suits and get to work. Here’s their new setup, a plastic tent inside the house, which is already inside a fumigation tent:
While they work, the music du jour is a bluesy song about rising up on a clear day and fulfilling your potential.
Walt and Jesse do just that. No more Gus, no more Tuco, just sunny skies and meth.
They let the cinematographers have fun for this, too. This is a closeup of a friggin’ chemical reaction of I don’t know what
THE HOUSE, LATER
Walt and Jesse rest after their first successful cook. They drink beers and watch a Three Stooges short. Awesome!
In their downtime, Walt admits how good it is to see Jesse and Andrea together, how proud he feels to see this. I’m guessing Walt is just manipulating Jesse again, making it seem less and less likely to Jesse that he could ever poison a kid like Brock, since he’s so happy for Jesse and all that.
There’s another angle to Walt’s buttering-up of Jesse. He wants to know if Andrea knows about the business. Jesse immediately reassures Walt that she doesn’t, and sounds way too goddamn obsequious doing it.
But Walt doesn’t let it go. He throws Jesse a curveball and tells him, if he wants to tell Andrea about the business, it’s his decision. Jesse is dumbstruck.
Walt tells him it’s because he knows, from experience, that keeping secrets from your spouse puts up barriers between you and them. Walt even sounds remorseful here…he admits that doing this stuff changes who you are, and that that affects your relationship with your SO. And he even kinda sorta but not overtly tells Jesse that it’s a bad idea to keep it a secret from Andrea.
Jesse’s troubled. Because how much do you keep a secret and how much do you tell? Andrea can already tell something is up with Jesse. But if he tells her the truth, does that mean he also has to tell her about Gale? They’ve done some heinous shit.
Walt backs off and just reiterates what he said earlier. It’s Jesse’s decision and Walt trusts him. And trust, from another man you view as an authority figure, feels pretty damn good. Walt and Jesse couldn’t be closer together.
Marie and Skyler are having lunch at the car wash. Marie is nitpicking the performance of one of the employees. She tells the guy to wipe the car down in circles so as to not leave streaks. Basically she’s being intrusive, and she even refers to one of the employees as “that ethnic one”.
OK, is everyone reminded that we’re supposed to hate her now? Good. Let’s move o with the show
