Storyline

Skyler finds a way to pressure the car-wash owner into selling, while Marie goes on a series of visits to realtors' open houses. Her antics get her in trouble, and Hank has to pull a few strings. One of his cop friends helps Marie out and, in turn, asks Hank to look at a notebook found at the scene of a murder. Meanwhile, Jesse's round-the-clock open houseparty brings no mirth.

A Slow-Moving, But Good Episode!
14 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the third episode of the fourth season of Breaking Bad. Like the previous episode, this episode is a slow-burner and takes it time telling the story. It's more or less the same plot, but there are more interesting moments here. Aaron Paul as Jesse shows some surprising depth as he has these bleak parties and shows a passion for go-karts in one memorable scene. It's nice to see Anna Gunn becoming more open in Walter's criminal life. Finally, Bob Odenkirk as Saul is able to inject some lighter moments in the episode.

In this episode, "Open House," Skylar is becoming more passively active in Walt's life as she still attempts to buy the car wash for money laundering duties and this time may have some luck with the help of Saul. Walter is angry that a camera was installed in the meth lab. Meanwhile, Jesse continues throwing parties to make his mind dwell elsewhere and Marie begins her kleptomaniac activities at open houses to help her ease the problems she has been having with Hank.

Overall, I thought this was a solid episode. It's not the greatest episode in the Breaking Bad's repertoire, but it is more interesting than the previous episode and it is nice to see a big problem of Marie during Season One make a return in this episode. I rate this episode 9/10.
