Hank has Walter drive him to the chicken ranch for regular stakeouts then suggests a detour to check out an industrial laundry. How can Walter get out of this one? Ted refuses to pay the IRS, so Skyler turns to Saul who sends his A team. Although Walter has continued to cook while getting no word on what's happened in Mexico to Jesse, Jesse has had his own six-mile walk with Gus through the desert to the Texas border. When circumstances prevent Walter from cooking for four days, he realizes that someone has been doing the job without him; Gus confirms Walter's suspicions with a nasty set of threats. Now Walter is truly desperate. Written by <>

This Episode Will Make Your Head Explode
21 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As we know, Skyler and Walt have a ton of money in their crawl space. However, they are both so involved with their own crises that they are both relying on that money without talking to one another about using it. Skyler is still trying to force her former boss into paying the IRS so that she isn't pulled into his audit. Her former boss has gotten incredibly greedy and that greed is making him stupid when it comes to this couple.

Walt meanwhile is trying to stay alive now that Jesse is becoming Gus's Number One guy. Of course no one should be getting closer with Gus but Gus and Mike pulled Jesse out of the fire when he was falling apart so he was vulnerable. Really, you wonder how anyone manages to still be alive from one episode to the next. That scene from an earlier episode of this season, when Walt is waiting for a scan with another cancer patient, keeps repeating in my head. Walt got into all of this because of his cancer. Now he can scarcely even think about the cancer since it is a miracle he is alive from the Gus menace one day after another.

Mortality is infinitely closer when you are part of a drug cartel, much closer than with cancer, as even with cancer you have the next 24 hours sewn up if you are still walking around with it. It keeps replaying in my head, Walt's telling the other cancer patient that the cancer barely registers in his mind anymore. Walt's life has become like one constant, unceasing scream.
