Storyline

Walt and Jesse manage to get their RV - the mobile meth lab - pulled out of the ditch but face another problem when they realize that Crazy 8, one of their attackers, is still breathing. They face grim choices and losing the coin toss, Walt is the one who has to get rid of him while Jesse will have to get rid of the dead Emilio's body. Walt's wife Skyler is puzzled by her husband's strange behavior and begins snooping, starting with his laptop. Demanding to know what is going on, Walt tells her her Jesse sells him marijuana. She confronts Jesse - just as he is removing Emilio's body from the RV. The day gets worse when Jesse ignores Walt's very specific instructions on how to get rid of the body. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

When Jesse bungles Walter White's instructions on how to dissolve a drug dealer's corpse in a bathtub, the entire body is dissolved and the acid eats through the tub. The team from MythBusters tested the science of this scene and found that, while the chemicals and applications used in the episode did cause some dissolving (they used a pig carcass in the test), it would not be able to dissolve an entire human body nor destroy the bathtub and floorboards.

Quotes

Walter White: I'm sorry, what were you asking me? Oh, yes, that stupid plastic container I asked you to buy. You see, hydrofluoric acid won't eat through plastic; it will however dissolve metal, rock, glass, ceramic. So there's that.

Amazing!
12 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I must say that this second episode of Breaking Bad lives up to the expectations the first one set. Everything is almost perfect especially the acting, the writing, and even the subtle things such as the facial expressions and the action. Intentionally or not, I was happy there were a few moments when I got to chuckle. This episode may not have as good as a story of the pilot, but nonetheless it was executed just as sharp.

This episode, "Cat's in the Bag" is about how Walt and Jesse decide to get rid of the body of the dealer they killed. Meanwhile, Walt's wife is snooping around trying to find the source of Walt's bizarre behavior.

Overall, this is a tight, well-made episode of a great series. It has a heightened sense of drama despite a tad weaker story. I rate this episode 9/10.
