Trivia

Jimmy watches White Heat with Kim, who is his perfect partner, and even helps him with certain crooked dealings. Ironically, on Breaking Bad, Jimmy as Saul recommended that Walter White find himself a trusted criminal "moll" liken to Virginia Mayo, who played Cagney's wife in White Heat. In actuality, Cagney's gangster character Cody Jarrett's mother was more of a faithful gun moll than his cheating wife, Mayo. See more »

A strong piece setting episode
18 August 2018 | by jay-95578See all my reviews

Breathe is undoubtedly a strong episode which continues to set up the central tensions for season 4. It's great to see Gus Fring once again at his most demonic but Rhea Seehorn in particular steals the show this week. Also, I'm always surprised by how much sympathy I always have for poor Howard Hamlin. He's a slime ball but he's got integrity.

It's also great to know Michelle Maclaren is behind the camera again. Although the tension here can't match up to her best work on breaking bad ('One minute', 'gliding over all', 'to'hajilee') there is still that same dutiful precision which wrings out the serious tension throughout the epsisode, especially in Rhea and Gus's big scenes.
