Having gotten away from Tuco, Walt and Jesse now have to get home and explain where they have been. Walt has a plan and they split up. He goes to a supermarket and takes off all of his clothes while walking around the aisles. He's hospitalized and claims to have no memory of where he's been for the last few days. Jesse returns to his house to clean out the basement and get rid of the RV. When the DEA also track him down, he claims that he's been shacked up with a prostitute for the weekend. The police don't believe him and think they know how to nail him: the bring in Tuco's uncle to identify him. With some of his problems now behind him, Walt is keen to start cooking again.

Did You Know?


On the DVD extras for season 2 Vince Gilligan says that the scriptwriters told him the title was from a line in the Humphrey Bogart film 'Treasure of the Sierra Madre'. This is incorrect, the title is a line from the Bogart and Bacall film 'To Have and Have Not'. However a reference to 'Treasure of the Sierra Madre' would be more relevant to the plot of Breaking Bad. See more »


Hank refers to Tuco's rifle as an M16, when it is clearly an M4 (or variant), which, as a DEA agent, Hank would almost certainly know. See more »

...from their kidnapping. So White and Pinkman will have to find a way to justify their absence.

And the writers do a decent job, even if both alibis are a little bit far-fetched (specially White's). But it's barely possible to have suspension of disbelief and accept the plot developments. It should be better done, but it is enjoyable enough.

In the acting department, Cranston is suffering a little bit of repetition, as he struggles against Anna Gunn's Skyler. His acting is a little bit bland in these last couple of episodes, and Paul and Gunn express more without overacting (ok, Paul shouts a little bit too much, but his character asks for it).

In summary, the show is advancing, as slow as ever, but at least it keeps the viewer attention.
