Urinal Guy


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

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.
