Storyline

Walt returns home to find Saul's car in his driveway with the door open. He goes in the back way believing Jesse is waiting for him but finds the house empty and gasoline all over the living room. He sets about cleaning the place up but unable to do so completely, he invents a story that Skyler sees through immediately. She tells him there's only one way to resolve the Jesse situation. Unbeknown to Walt, the reason Jesse wasn't in the house is that Hank had been following him and stopped him from setting the house on fire. He gets Jesse to tell his story but Hank still has no hard evidence. He wants Jesse to wear a wire but Jesse thinks there's a better way. Written by garykmcd

Jesse on the Rampage!
23 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the twelfth episode of the fifth season of Breaking Bad. It was a fine episode, although it lacks the intensity of the previous few episodes. It is a top-notch episode though thanks to the wonderful acting and good lines of dialogue. The episode created another villain working against Walt, so some interesting scenarios are being created.

In this episode, "Rabid Dog," Walt comes back to his house to see that Jesse decided not to burn down his home. Walt sends Skylar and Walt Jr to a hotel and he sends Saul and his henchman to find Jesse. But little does Walt know that Hank found Jesse before him and Jesse has a plan to finish Walt.

Overall, this was a good episode even if its a step down from the last episode. Essentially, this episode is the calm before the storm. In that aspect, I'm excited to see what happens next.

My Grade: A-
