Storyline

Walt's been having trouble getting in touch with Jesse who's been avoiding him since his encounter with Spooge. He's also not providing product to his dealers so Walt arranges to deliver it. He learns that Jesse's reputation as a killer has spread and they're having no problem at all collecting payment. Walt decides the time has come to expand their territory and put Jesse's new reputation to good use. Skyler decides to get a job and goes back to her old employer. Hank starts his new job on the task force. He's told his wife Marie it's just a desk job but he's on the front lines and very soon learns just how dangerous it can be. Written by garykmcd

Danny Trejo's Cameo Is at Least Partly Responsible for This Episode Being One of Season Two's Best
30 October 2013 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

"Negro Y Azul" is hands down a great episode and one of the factors that helped me to sustain my faith in the show during this generally rather disappointing second season. All story parts deal with aftermaths in some way: Skyler having to find a job to get money for Walt's cancer treatment since there've been some complications in the last episode, Jesse's sort-of involvement in the killing of a drug junkie yielding unexpected improvements of his reputation, and Hank's success in finding and killing Tuco at the beginning of this season leading him to uncomfortable conditions in his new office.

And let's just start with the last of these three as it provides with what is, at least in my humble opinion, the show's best scene up to that point. The Danny Trejo turtle tragedy is what I'm talking about. It totally blew me away, which actually is unfortunate phrasing in consideration of the things happening, and is a pure stroke of genius by Vince Gilligan. And not only that, I also found it really interesting to see how Hank was the most amicable guy at his old office, but suddenly seems out of place in El Paso.

Jesse, on the other hand, has already had his traumatic incident in the last episode, in which some crazy meth hag liquefied her husband's head with the help of an ATM machine, lest you forget. Understandably, such a thing leaves an impression on you and Jesse's response is to return to the lackadaisical attitude we've become used to – something that Aaron Paul has been a master in portraying in since the very beginning of Breaking Bad. But, of course, this can't be the only thing happening with him in this episode and so he gets closer to his landlady Jane. Not that much is happening in for now, but the relationship that starts with this episode gets quite entertaining.

Skyler's arc is less awesome, yet a pleasant look at another, more sympathetic side of her character while also introducing Ted Beneke. He's nothing to get really excited about, yet still a nice part-time addition to the cast that will make for some very good scenes in the future. Also, Walt. Although he's usually the center of attention, there's really not a lot to say about him in that episode despite him getting megalomaniac in the drug business once again. At least the scene at the beginning where he flunks a fibbing student of his was great.
