Storyline

Hank immediately contacts Skyler to tell her what he's learned. He wants her to give him a statement but she decides she wants a lawyer. Hank gets his wife to talk to her but after an ugly confrontation, Skyler stands her ground. Walt, unable to contact Skyler, has Saul's men get his money out of his storage locker. He promptly buries the loot in the desert. He returns home knowing that Hank has been in touch with Skyler but she assures him that she told Hank nothing. She's also convinced that Hank has no evidence to back up anything he might know. A frustrated Hank returns to work having no evidence to move against Walt. When he hears that Jesse Pinkman has been arrested, he decides to visit him in jail. Written by garykmcd

An episode not exploiting the full potential of the current storyline
12 February 2014 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

With Breaking Bad, there are a lot of things you just can't predict, and having one of the most hilarious and rememberable moments of the entire series appear in the final eight episodes is indubitably one of them. The scene I'm referring to is – what else could it be? – Huell and Kuby's Scrooge McDuck impersonation, which is actually my favourite moment of "Buried", another episode of the series not exploiting the full potential of the current storyline, by far.

Jesse, having not a single line of dialogue over all 47 minutes, sinks into one of his all too frequent depression states once again, which wasn't exactly a brilliant or original idea, but at least serves as a half-decent reason to get him involved in the big plot currently going on. This big plot is, highly understandably considering the occurrences in the previous two episodes, still centred on Walt and Hank and the increasingly different situation their families are facing. But while Anna Gunn, Betsy Brandt, and Dean Norris share some intense and well- acted scenes, there isn't anything to special about them in this episode and I wouldn't have minded if one or two minutes of their screen time were reduced. One really good part about "Buried" comes most unexpected, as Lydia, with a little help of Todd(ler, in comparison to his colleagues) and his evil-looking gang, employs her trademark mixture of unscrupulousness and sensitivity in an enthralling and entertaining scene.

Walt takes a slight step back in this episode and also has fewer lines than usual, but participates in a beautifully looking desert scene that has Breaking Bad proving yet for another time how creative one can be with cinematography. Those are the aspects of "Buried" I care to mention as the remainder doesn't serve much a greater purpose than establishing future story lines, which I'll discuss in future reviews.
