Having been kidnapped by a crazed Tuco, Walt and Jesse are held prisoner by him in a desert shack where he often hides out and takes care of his sick uncle. Walt's brother-in-law Hank and the DEA have rolled Tuco's entire organization and he thinks that his two prisoners may have been a source of information. Walt tries to feed Tuco the poison he prepared. Walter Jr. meanwhile takes a bit of time off to look for Walt. Skyler is sick with worry and has been distributing handbills with Walt's photo. He remembers that Jesse Pinkman was Walt's source of marijuana and tries to track him down. Tuco finally realizes that his prisoners are up to something and is obviously going to kill Jesse. After a fight in which Tuco is shot, Hank shows up looking for Jesse. Written by garykmcd

Showing some signs of life
9 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

The end of the previous episode had Pinkman and White being "kidnapped" by Tuco. This episode shows that yes, they were kidnapped, and he has taken them to an isolated house, where his impaired uncle is watching 24/7 TV. White and Pinkman will have to find a way to stay alive while Whitman's wife tries to find him, worried because of his sudden disappearance.

After almost nothing had happened since the pilot, this episode shows some life, as finally White and Pinkman are in a difficult situation, and with their lives on the line. Nonetheless, the show keeps being not very original, and almost every plot development can be expected. And it is a little bit difficult to believe the resources of the couple against drug kingpins and, being the sloppy that they actually are, how they had yet to be discovered by White's brother-in-law.

The show is still unsure of where it is going, as we are basically at square one, one step forward one back. But at least, some tension.
