Storyline

Walt and Skyler have decided to use gambling to explain how Walt has made all of his money. It's not to be a happy story and Skyler insists that Walt admit to a gambling addiction and express deep shame for what he has done. At dinner with Marie and Hank Schrader, they tell their rehearsed story. Hank has a story for Walt however, one of a dead wannabee singer who had lab notes describing a super-processing meth lab. Hank is convinced the dead man is Heisenberg, the drug manufacturer he has been looking for for over a year. Walt tries to warn Jesse and is appalled at his living conditions. Jesse couldn't care less and when Mike gets wind of his attitude, Jesse is taken for a ride into the desert. Written by garykmcd

Excellent Episode!
14 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the fourth episode of the fourth season of Breaking Bad. I found this to be a mesmerizing episode and is back on track after two rather slow episodes. We can thank excellent acting and a fantastic screenplay. The chemistry between Anna Gunn and Bryan Cranston is great and Aaron Paul continues his effective acting. Bob Odenkirk actually has a few funny lines as well.

In this episode, "Bullet Points," Skylar decides to using a gambling addiction to tell Hank and Marie about how they are getting all their money, much to the delight of Hank and Walter Jr. Hank shows Walt the work he was given and he declares the dead Gale as Heisenberg. Jesse continues his ways of not caring, and Mike decides to show him otherwise.

Overall, this is a fantastic episode. One that has excellent exposition and tense lines of dialogue. I get the sense that something big will happen soon. But this is a nice change of pace for the season. I rate this episode 9/10.
