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 »

Amazing!
10 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The sixth episode in the second season of Breaking Bad is getting more thrilling and more intense. After several slower-paced episodes, things really begin to pick up. The Jesse story arc is really good here and is quite action-packed. The Walt story arc is decent and quite entertaining as we see Walt trying to make up even more lies to tell his wife.

In this episode, "Peekaboo," Walt sends Jesse after the drug addicts who tried to interfere in their business, but as a bad negotiator, Jesse gets the table turned on him. Meanwhile, Walt is back at work, but is forced to make more lies when Gretchen is on the verge of saying she is not paying for Walt's cancer treatment.

Overall, this is an incredible, action-packed episode. Through all these episodes so far, they all seem very real and gritty. Now with things going at a steady pace, I'm curious to see what happens next. I rate this episode 9/10.
