Good character development episode.
7 August 2012 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

A very underestimated, and subtle but good episode of Breaking Bad this week. I can see why some people are criticizing it, this one i saw was definitely more of a character development "setting up the final scene" kind of episode to me.

For the first three episodes of the season, we have seen a near catatonic Skylar, a Skylar that is a shattered nervous wreck, a terrified woman who feels trapped in her situation/surroundings. we have also seen Walt bit by bit becoming Heisenberg, and less of what was left of the careful and conscious Walt on screen.

This is the episode where we finally see Skylar and Walt come head to head and lay it all out on the table. we see Skylars motivation as a character for the remainder of the season. I wont give away too much, but this episode definitely shines a glaring spotlight on the very fragile state of affairs that is Skylar/Walts relationship.
