Skyler gets the first of Hank's hospital bills and decides the time has come to get more involved in Walt's business affairs. She's particularly concerned that the money is laundered correctly and that it absolutely cannot be traced back to Walt's illegal activities. Walt introduces her to Saul the lawyer but she thinks the investment he's lined up is ludicrous and has a better idea. Jesse meanwhile is still trying to peddle the meth he been skimming at the lab and fed up with the slow pace, decides to show how it's done. At the hospital, Marie is thrilled at the prospect of Hank returning home but he doesn't seem anywhere near as pleased. Walt's employer, Gus, invites him to dinner and dispenses sage advice.

In JeremyJahns non-spoiler review for Breaking Bad, he says that Saul Goodman looks like Kevin Costner's love child. In this episode, Saul says he once convinced a woman he was Kevin Costner. See more »


Jesse Pinkman: You know, I don't get it. Why would anyone paint a picture of a door, over and over again, like, dozens of times?
Jane Margolis: But it wasn't the same.
Jesse Pinkman: Yeah, it was.
Jane Margolis: It was the same subject, but it was different every time. The light was different, her mood was different. She saw something new every time she painted it.
Jesse Pinkman: And that's not psycho to you?
Jane Margolis: Well, then why should we do anything more than once? Should I just smoke this one cigarette? Maybe we should only have sex once, if it's the same thing.

"Abiquiu" is Breaking Bad's third filler episode in a row, so I guess you can't even call it that anymore, can you? Anyway, this weirdly titled episode seems more concerned with the introduction of an unnecessary character than with actually getting the series in the direction of a good series finale. Here's why I continued to not like Breaking Bad at that point:

As Skyler unexpectedly interferes in Walt's business, she meets his lawyer Saul Goodman which serves for an amusing five minutes. Besides that though, her involvement seems a bit out of the blue and changed some character traits of hers. Walt is the complete background man this time around and has inexplicably lost the paranoid side of his he had just one episode ago, while Bob Odenkirk did a great job as Saul as always, but still couldn't make me enjoy the scenes they shared. The more interesting part for a lot of people was Jesse's arc, in which he encounters a new girl and starts a strange relationship with her, following from his initial attempt to sell meth to her. I personally was very bored by these scenes and not even the aha moment at the end could really impress me.

The only parts I considered to be outstanding in "Abiquiu" were the short but well-filmed meth cooking and, more importantly, Walt visiting his boss Gus at his nicely decorated bourgeois home and the two sharing the most homo-erotic moment in the series together. Giancarlo Esposito is Emmy-worthy as always and was even more fun to watch than usual, while their conversation topic could've been a tad more appealing.
