Storyline

It's the morning after the night before and Walt has a major hangover. Skyler is now convinced that Walt is in danger but he makes sure she understands exactly how important he is to the criminal organization. He's a little too blunt as Skyler's reaction is to take the baby and disappear for a few days. One of Gus' trucks has been hijacked so Mike and Jesse are tasked to get the blue meth back. Once again, Jesse proves to be unexpectedly useful. In the lab, Walt is fed up with Jesse going off on errands with Mike and so comes up with his own solution to cleaning up. He also learns that his actions may have unintended consequences. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

Skyler White: Walt, please, let's both of us stop trying to justify this whole thing and admit you're in danger!
Walter White: Who are you talking to right now? Who is it you think you see? Do you know how much I make a year? I mean, even if I told you, you wouldn't believe it. Do you know what would happen if I suddenly decided to stop going into work? A business big enough that it could be listed on the NASDAQ goes belly up. Disappears! It ceases to exist without me. No, you clearly don't know who you're talking to, so ...

The shark said "jump higher", and so they did...

The writers may be running out of ideas in season 4 cuz the show jumped the shark somewhere in it.

On one hand the entire cover story of the laundered money is becoming too cumbersome and unexciting.

On the other hand, character development has come to a halt. Everyone is static. Skyler, Jesse, Walter Jr. are completely motionless.

Well, everyone except maybe Walt, who's actually going backwards. Walter White from season 4 is some kind of carbon copy of the original, a faint shadow. Whereas the original Walt was smart, sensible, with lots of common sense, this one is reckless, hateful, and more unstable than a chemical reaction gone bad. For a meth cook who seeks job security, as well as personal security, he behaves in ways contrary to what one would expect of him. What's worse is that he's not only losing his common sense, but he seems to be losing his short-term memory as well (fugue state maybe?) For example, after the scene with the expensive champagne, we expected Walt and Sky to be on the same page about being frugal spenders. All of a sudden Walt decides that champagne wasn't enough, so he buys a Dodge Challenger for Jr. Excuse me??? I don't recall Walt being drunk at the time...

Which brings me to my next point - the writers should stop using Walter-gets-drunk-and-can't-control-himself cheap shenanigans to artificially push the story. That's crap.

So while the story is receding from fun characters like Saul and Hank, it's also reducing the main characters to carbon.

The show had a decent run though. It was fun while it lasted.
