They face grim choices and losing the coin toss, Walt is the one who has to get rid of him while Jesse will have to get rid of the dead Emilio's body. Walt's wife Skyler is puzzled by her husband's strange behavior and begins snooping, starting with his laptop. Demanding to know what is going on, Walt tells her her Jesse sells him marijuana. She confronts Jesse - just as he is removing Emilio's body from the RV. The day gets worse when Jesse ignores Walt's very specific instructions on how to get rid of the body. Written by garykmcd

Walter White: I guess the only other fair way to go about this would be that one of us deals with the body situation while the other one of us deal with the Krazy-8 situation. In a scenario like this I don't suppose it is bad form to just... flip a coin. Heads or tails?
Jesse Pinkman: No, I'll do the body in the acid OK?
Walter White: Heads or tails?
Jesse Pinkman: Heads... heads.
Walter White: [flips coin, shows heads] Best two out of three?

What to Do?
23 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

Walter and Pinkman have a big problem with the corpses of Krazy-8 and his cousin Emilio. Walter plans to dispose them using acid to get rid of the bodies. But the problem increases when Krazy-8 awakes dazed and confused and flees from Pinkman's house. Meanwhile Skyler finds Walter's attitude strange and snoops his notebook, finding Pinkman's address. She presses Walter and he says that he buys marijuana with Pinkman. Skyler goes to his house when he is transporting Emilio's body from the RV to his house. She threatens Pinkman if he continues to sell marijuana to her husband. Walter returns to Pinkman's house with Krazy-8 but he does not have enough courage to execute him. Meanwhile Pinkman does not follow Walter's instructions to use acid in a plastic container and has a huge surprise at home.

"Cat's in the Bag..." is a funny episode of "Breaking Bad" with black humor to the best. Unfortunately the show has only given glances of Walter's previous life without developing well his behavior at home and at school, and the supporting characters. But anyway it is not difficult to see the changes in his behavior and understand the concerns of Skyler. Not there is a question: what to do with Krazy-8? My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Cat's in the Bag..."
