Hello, Breaking Bad boys and Breaking Bad girls! I’m almost overwhelmed with the week I’ve just had. Since last Sunday, I’ve gotten to watch the BrBa season 5 premier, plus a new episode of BrBa tonight, PLUS Dark Knight Rises. (Recommendation: go see it!) I’m OD’ing on favorite shit this week. It’s too much. If this were the week Assassin’s Creed III or Hitman 5 came out, I would be dead.
I almost called this recap “Boygasm”, but it turns out you get put on an FBI watch list for using that word
And yeah, I picked the shittiest character from TDKR for this. What of it?!?!?!
I feel this way EVEN IF last week’s season 5 premier wasn’t quite the knockout I expected, what with its Hogan’s Heroes-esque storyline and dearth of Jessie. I went into Season 5 Episode 2 thinking things would get back to normal. We would see more of Walt’s descent into villainry, and how it affects everyone around him. You know, what this show is all about.
But…Vince Gilligan and co. didn’t quite do that. And I’m not sure they ever will again. I’ll explain after the recap, but for now, let’s dive in.
Now let’s get to the recap!
Here’s what the show wants us to remember for this week’s episode:
-Last season, Jesse suspected Walt had poisoned Brock with the ricin before turning his suspicions to Gus. As we know, it turns out Jesse’s first instinct was right. Ignorant to the truth, Jesse and Walt have patched things up, but will Jesse figure out the truth any time soon?
-Back when Hank was investigating Gus, but before the case was broken wide open, Hank was chasing up a lead on a German industrial corporation. This company, Madrigal, built some lab equipment that Gale had bought for the superlab. And since this week’s episode is titled “Madrigal”, presumably this week Hank is gonna be looking into them.
-We’ll also be getting a follow-up on last week’s discovery of the Gus’s Cayman Islands bank account number found in the evidence room in the police station. Wonder where that will lead…
-Last week’s confrontation between Walt and Saul, when Saul tried to back out of their business arrangement but Walt basically forced him to shut the hell up and stay in line.
-Skyler and Walt are settling back in together, at least on the surface. How will Skyler adapt to being married to a monster?
-And finally, the beef between Walt and Mike. Last week Mike was literally ready to shoot Walt in the face for killing Gus. Will that come to a head or will they patch things up, too?
I mean, I assume it’s Madrigal. The “previously on” section just mentioned Madrigal, and we know Madrigal is a German company. Right now everyone in this scene is speaking German. So.
