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>

Powerful!
19 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the tenth episode of the fourth season of Breaking Bad. For the most part, this was an incredible and powerful episode. There were a few slower and weaker moments, namely the conversation Walt had with his son. But nonetheless, thing are going hardcore now. We still have three more episodes left, so I'm prepared to buckle in my seatbelt.

In this episode, "Salud," Jesse flies to Mexico with Gus and Mike in order to cook meth for the cartel. Meanwhile, Walter tries to recover from the fight he had with Jesse and misses his son's birthday. Skylar tries to help her old boss pay back his taxes.

Overall, this was an excellent episode. The story lines are great, particularly the Mexico storyline. The ending is just shocking and one of the best Breaking Bad endings. That goes in part to the great acting of Aaron Paul. I rate this episode 9/10.
