Storyline

With blood on their hands, the Walter, Jesse, and Mike partnership must first decide what to do about Todd. After that's settled, Walter is ready to cook again, but Jesse and Mike have another idea. Skyler spends some time with her daughter and with Marie, and Walter's invitation that Jesse stay for dinner adds to Skyler's misery. Hank and his team put nearly round-the-clock surveillance on Mike, and a meth producer in Phoenix has a plan. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Goofs

When Walter used the coffee maker's power cord to burn through the tie-wrap holding his wrist to the radiator, the spike in amperage would have easily tripped the breaker on either the surge protector the power cord was plugged into or the breaker at the main electrical panel. He could not have used the stripped wires as an improvised arc welder to cut his bonds. See more »

A "Calmer" Episode!
18 February 2015 | by g-bodylSee 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-
