Storyline

Skinny Pete has been ripped off by a drug addicted couple and Walt has made it plain to Jesse that unless he does something about it, word will get around pretty quick that they are an easy mark. Jesse isn't a very effective informer however and is quickly in over his head. Walt goes back to work but not all is going smoothly. Walt's story starts to unravel when Skyler gets a call from Gretchen Schwartz and she thanks her for paying for Walt's treatment. Gretchen doesn't give him away but his bitterness at their past relationship - personal and business - comes out. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

Skinny Pete gives Jesse a piece of paper with the address of the junkie couple who robbed him. The address is "3085 Pampas Streat." (Jesse scolds Pete about his inability to spell "street" correctly.) When Jesse goes to the house, however, you can clearly see the street signs for a different address on the corner: Marquette and 13th. See more »

Quotes

Gretchen Schwartz: Let me just get this straight - Elliot and I offered to pay for your treatment, no strings attached. An offer which still stands, by the way. And you turn us down, out of pride, or whatever. And then you tell your wife that in fact we are paying for your treatment, and against our knowledge and against our will you involve us in your lie. And you sit there and you tell me that it is none of my business?
Walter White: Yeah, that's pretty much the size of it.
Gretchen Schwartz: What happened to you? Really, what happened? ...

After the last episodes had picked up the pace and were taking the story somewhere, "Peekaboo" decides to take a detour and stop advancing the story of Walter and Pinkman (which is becoming more and more interesting; actually more than Walter's).

Walter keeps his breaking down. Cranston keeps his good job, but one has to wonder how Walter White kept all that hate under control before "Breaking Bad" started. Or are we supposed he was the perfect husband, father and teacher? It all seems a little bit of a stretch, as his relationship with his wife. In the first episodes of season one they seemed to have a good enough relationship, her caring about his illness, etc etc. Now they are so suspicious of each other, is too big and too fast of a change.

Also, poor Pinkman. Walter's puppet tries to do Walter's biding, but has a problem as he finds a child in the junkies thieves' house. Pinkman is the best character in the series, but pairing him with a child makes him a disservice. And not very interesting, either.

An OK episode, with not much happening.
