Walt still has has the dilemma of what to do with Krazy 8 who is still chained in the basement and seemingly getting better.

More Awesomeness!
13 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The third episode of Season 1 is just as good and perhaps a bit more dramatic than the two previous episodes. This episode is really the first time we see Walt reach his breaking point and it's a dandy to watch. The acting is good as ever and I'm glad we get to see Hank, the DEA agent again because I like he brings some over-the-top acting to his character.

This episode, "...And the Bag's in the River" has Walt deciding on whether or not he should kill his prisoner, Krazy 8. Meanwhile, it's believed that Walt Jr has been on pot, so Hank is asked to have a little chat with him.

Overall, this is an excellent episode that continues the high quality this series is bringing to television. It's more intense and there is a shocking twist. I am now officially addicted to the series. I rate this episode 9/10.
