A "Calmer" Episode!
18 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the sixth episode of the fifth season of Breaking Bad. Things return to a calmer state of mind, but only in the sense of the action from the previous episode. That being said, we get a look at the business side of things and it's quite interesting to listen to. The acting remains strong, especially from Cranston and Anna Gunn as Skylar delves even deeper into her misery.

In this episode, "Buyout," Walt, Jesse, and Mike must deal with the aftermath of Todd's actions. After the dust is settled, Walt wants to cook again but Mike and Jesse are not feeling the same way. Skylar finally admits to Marie her affair with Ted, which makes for an interesting dinner topic when Walt invites Jesse over for dinner. Meanwhile, the DEA are keeping constant surveillance on Mike.

Overall, this is a solid episode and the action is less sparse, but the tension remains palpable. I liked the discussions involving the business side of things and it's actually quite educational. But of course the calm will probably not be around long.

My Grade: A-
