Storyline

Jesse, Gus, and Mike fly to Mexico where Jesse will cook a batch of crystal meth for Don Eladio's skeptical team. If Jesse succeeds, then what? Walter is recovering from a beating and misses his son's 16th birthday; Walter Jr. comes to his dad's place to find out what's wrong. Skyler discovers that Ted Beneke is not using an anonymous windfall to repay the IRS; she calls on Ted. By the end, we're back poolside at Don Eladio's villa where they toast each other's health with well-aged tequila. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Sorry, I can't rate the episode for only one story arc
21 December 2013 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

Something that everyone who has seen "Salud" will agree on is that the ending was phenomenal. More aptly phrased I would say, the whole story arc of Jesse, Gus, and Mike making a voyage down to Mexico because the Cartel intends rough measures if Walt's recipe isn't passed on to them was phenomenal. Besides Aaron Paul giving another tremendous performance as his character gets more and more likable, I simply loved the cinematography, scenery, score, and dialog in these scenes and they secure that "Salud" is one of the best Breaking Bad episodes up to that point.

What secures that "Salud" isn't the best episode up to that point is the whole rest that is included story-wise. That isn't to say that Walt and his son having a deep conversation for the first time ever wasn't impressing and highly acceptable. Yet in comparison, it has the quality of a commercial – the Mexico plot was just too good. But even if the Mexico plot hadn't been there, Skyler attempting to solve the fiscal trouble her ex brought up would have been sub-par. Christopher Cousins is annoying as hell (not as if I've come to expect anything else) and Anna Gunn's character notoriously is involved in the weaker story lines of the series.

Thus, the only thing you'll remember about "Salud" is Mexico, which was, I just have to stress it that much, nothing less than outstanding. However, as I'm rating the whole episode, giving the full amount points is impossible – but hey, that's why I'm writing a review and not only leaving an ambiguous rating, right?
