Storyline

It's the morning after the night before and Walt has a major hangover. Skyler is now convinced that Walt is in danger but he makes sure she understands exactly how important he is to the criminal organization. He's a little too blunt as Skyler's reaction is to take the baby and disappear for a few days. One of Gus' trucks has been hijacked so Mike and Jesse are tasked to get the blue meth back. Once again, Jesse proves to be unexpectedly useful. In the lab, Walt is fed up with Jesse going off on errands with Mike and so comes up with his own solution to cleaning up. He also learns that his actions may have unintended consequences. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

Skyler White: Walt, please, let's both of us stop trying to justify this whole thing and admit you're in danger!
Walter White: Who are you talking to right now? Who is it you think you see? Do you know how much I make a year? I mean, even if I told you, you wouldn't believe it. Do you know what would happen if I suddenly decided to stop going into work? A business big enough that it could be listed on the NASDAQ goes belly up. Disappears! It ceases to exist without me. No, you clearly don't know who you're talking to, so ...

Walt is Going off the Deep End!
15 January 2015 | by g-bodylSee all my reviews

This is the sixth episode of the fourth season of Breaking Bad. This episode should be highlighted for numerous reasons, but Bryan Cranston deserves the best. His speech in the beginning of the episode and the way he shows the former car wash owner who is boss was just magnificent. But we also get fantastic acting from Anna Gunn and Aaron Paul.

In this episode, "Cornered," Walt explains to Skylar in a fiery speech about how important he is to the meth suppliers, which causes her to take the baby and leave for a few days. Meanwhile, Jesse continues going out with Mike on errands for Gus, this time around trying to reclaim meth that was stolen from them. Walt shows his disapproval in an unexpected way. Also, Walt decides to buy his son a car.

Overall, this is a fantastic episode and one that has Skylar beginning how truly dangerous Walt's job really is. That outburst by Walt in the beginning is the most memorable speech in recent television history. But this episode also shows how Walt may be reaching his critical point. I rate this episode 9/10.
