Making business
17 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

Pinkman, who doesn't really seem to want to, and Walter start their business, with the help of Pinkman's friends.

This episode keeps the faster pace that it has been having in the last episodes. This is the beginning of Walter and Pinkman's kingdom, and it shows how the business starts.

However, "Breaking Bad" is still more interested in Walter's decision of destroying everything, and you can see how he is trying to control everything and everyone because he hasn't really done that ever. And lost Pinkman is the perfect victim for this violent and repressed man, who is making poor Pinkman his puppet. Walter White is showing a more violent and mean face with every episode, a man capable of everything, now that he is unleashed.

Good acting, focus and interesting plot development. Good episode overall.
