Storyline

Having completed their deal with Tuco in the junkyard, Walt and Jesse realize just how crazy and violent he can be. Jesse is convinced that he's seen Tuco's black SUV going up and down his street. Walt puts it down to paranoia - until he sees a black SUV parked just down the block from his house. Jesse's solution is to shoot Tuco before he kills them but Walt has a better idea. Panic sets in however when they think Tuco is killing his associates. Hank reviews the security surveillance footage of the warehouse break-in without realizing it's Walt and Jesse. Skyler tells Hank about Marie's shoplifting and gets a surprising reaction. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

When extracting ricin from Castor beans it is extremely important to keep external contamination, even at the germ level, out of the process. That is the reason Walt was so careful about touching the raw beans. Ricin itself is not that fragile. It is during the process of extraction that the beans sensitive. See more »

Hank's Hilarious, Tuco's Tough, and Breaking Bad's Bodacious
19 October 2013 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

Picking up exactly where season one's finale left off – in fact showing (or staging, I'm not entirely sure) the ultimate scene again for further emphasis – "Seven Thirty-Seven" as well includes some absolutely outstanding scenes, yet doesn't exclude some unnecessary flaws.

The plot centers both around Walt and Jesse's increased fear of their new colleague in drugs after they've experienced him pulpifying his associate basically just for kicks and the suspicion Skyler develops both on her husband and her shoplifting sister. The first thing you see of season 2 is a mysterious monochrome montage before the credits turns out to be just as fantastic as a conversational highlight between Skyler and Hank about half an hour later. Next to that, "737" impresses with the already mentioned extended season one finale that gets even more rememberable through Tuco's whispering of "You're done." – an ambiguous screenplay gem that sent shivers down my spine. In less dramatic matters, Dean Norris absolutely steals the show with hilarious dark humor and Aaron Paul is great once again as his character gets more and more paranoid. The not-so-nice parts mostly were the moments that Walt and Skyler shared together (a trend that sadly hangs over the whole season) and some irrational choices of Heisenberg and his little compañero that bothered me.

Bryan Cranston's first directorial effort on Breaking Bad is just as well-done as the show's first seven episodes and might include even more stylistic plus points. If it weren't for a handful of weaker parts, this could have even been the best episode at that point.
