Storyline

Walt is convinced that his medical condition is deteriorating. He continues to have coughing fits and is now coughing up blood. After his attorney and new business partner crunches the numbers, he realizes that there isn't much money left for his family. He and Jesse set off for the desert for a marathon cooking session over an extended weekend. Jesse just continues to put his foot in it, this time by leaving the keys in the ignition and inadvertently draining the battery. They find themselves in the middle of the desert, cold and without much water. Walt's knowledge of chemistry again saves the day. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

In "Down" and "Breakage", we learn that Jesse's dealers were selling meth for $2500/ounce, of which Walt and Jesse kept $2000, split evenly between them. Then in "Negro y Azul", Walt tells Jesse to raise the prices. Here in "Four Days Out", when Walt asks Jesse what they're selling meth for these days, Jesse says $40,000/pound, i.e. $2500/ounce. Walt looks surprised that it's so high, to which Jesse replies, "Hey, you said raise the prices." But that figure (which from Walt saying, "minus distribution charges" while performing his calculations we know is the street price) and the math on each of them making $672,000 for 42 pounds of meth shows that the street price is still $2500/ounce and that he and Jesse still keep $2000 of that - exactly the pricing they started with.

Quotes

Walter H. White: Jesse. Jesse. Your body is running dangerously low on electrolytes. Sodium, potassium, calcium. And when they're gone, your brain ceases to communicate with your muscles. Your lungs stop breathing. Your heart stops pumping. You go marching out there and within an hour you will be dead.
Jesse Pinkman: Okay. You need to cut out all your loser cry-baby crap RIGHT NOW and think of something SCIENTIFIC.
Walter H. White: Something scientific? Right.
Jesse Pinkman: What? Come on! Man, you're smart. You made poison out of beans, yo. Look, we got, ...

Great Episode!
13 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the ninth episode of the second season of Breaking Bad and things are beginning to go full steam ahead. The intensity is picking up as well as both the action and the drama. This episode starts well and has a rather surprising, but really good ending. The acting is still impressive and we know as we see Cranston and Paul bantering at each other.

In this episode, "4 Days Out," Walt has a fear that his condition is getting worse since he's been coughing up blood. Walt decides to have a cooking marathon in the desert with Jesse but when the RV doesn't work, Walt must use his knowledge of chemistry to save the day.

Overall, this is a fantastic episode and it only promises a higher level of intensity in future episodes. I'm liking what I see here and I can't wait to see what happens next. I rate this episode 9/10.
