Goofs

At the beginning of the episode we see Lydia in her office. She makes a phone call in what is supposed to be German and may sound so to someone not knowing the language. It is however only the sounds and just a few words can be recognized. No coherent sentences in any way. See more »

Best of Anna Gunn

I really don't understand why so much hate on Skyler's character. I think all of the actors and actresses are brilliant on this show but on this episode Anna's acting is just amazing to watch. I feel like I'm living exactly what Skyler is feeling. Her words and reactions fits perfectly with the situation she's in. As an actress I think she deserves more recognition and respect because we don't see many like her lately.
