Still An Excellent Episode!, 24 August 2014
Author: g-bodyl from United States

This is the third episode of the third season of Breaking Bad and despite the slowness, it's still a great episode. When you care about the characters this much, you wouldn't mind if an episode was devoted to them eating cereal for forty-five minutes. Obviously that is not the case here, but you get my point. There are still domestic issues going on, but things shall get more interesting even later on.

In this episode, "I.F.T," Walt moves back into the house without Skylar's consent and she tries to get rid of him by calling the cops. Walter Jr. is thrilled that his father is back at home. Meanwhile, Jesse is still making amends to the death of his girlfriend, but he is willing to go back to work. Finally, Gus makes clear that he doesn't want Walt harmed, at least not for the time being.

Overall, this is a fabulous episode even though it's a slow-burner. The acting is excellent as always and Danny Trejo makes a welcome appearance reprising his character from the previous episode. Also, this has a wonderful cliffhanger and one that might explain the title of this episode. I rate this episode 9/10.
