With the DEA now aware of the threat against Hank, Skyler and the children move into protective custody. Walt refuses to do so, barricading himself in his house determined to face whatever fate now awaits him. Jesse again refuses to let Gus get rid of Walt, even after the DEA visits the laundry to have a look around. When his girlfriend's son, Brock, falls seriously ill he realizes that the poison Walt had given him is missing. He goes berserk assuming Walt is responsible but Walt has a different explanation for him. With Jesse maintaining a vigil at the hospital and refusing to cook in the lab, Walt has a plan to deal with Gus. Written by garykmcd

The best slow episode of the series
22 December 2013 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

"End Times" was the calm before the storm I had expected, but that isn't to say it was a bad episode. With little stuff actually happening, the intensity was sustained by director Vince Gilligan with a little help from his phenomenal cast.

Calling it calm is a bit incongruous, but the scenes at the Schrader household simply are the slower scenes and didn't have any effect on my sitting position (later scenes had me curling up into a ball due to the suspenseful atmosphere). Nevertheless, they include the by far best bit of screen writing of the episode ("Because it's not Nazi Germany, all right?"). Walt, who isn't aboard at this jolly family gathering, spends the time next to his pondering pool – or puking pool, depending on which character sits next to it – and later gets into a conflict with Jesse, in a scene that one can only describe with "Wow". Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston have had so many unforgettable scenes together over the course of Breaking Bad, but here's another contestant for number one. Paul additionally gets to participate in heart-wrenching hospital scenes and has another splendid conversation with Gus taking place, and this location decision is probably the best over the whole series, in a church.

As if my heart wasn't throbbing at a critical pace already, he then (in fact, that was before the aforementioned scene, but my text structuring is awful) also discovers that his ricin cigarette fled the coop and Walt fails yet again at the kill Gus mission. Oh, and if that just sounded dull, I should probably mention that the enactment was totally awesome. So, while "End Times" isn't as big of a deal as the episodes before and after, it's without a doubt the best slow episode of the series.
