If i dislike something, and i have some reasons that go beyond personal taste, but a huge grup won't shut up about how good it is, even when i know it isn't, it's going to make me dislike that thing, thanks to it's fanbase. Basically I'm pretty sure I've just witnessed a perfect episode of television and I think I count myself a Breaking Bad fan, now. Jesse's answer is not as clear although the tenderness with which he puts Mr. It's implied that this ideal death would enable Walt to avoid any heavy consequences with his drug manufacturing, but with the remission, Walt will probably be alive a little longer than he assumed. I'm also not sure they'd hire a Hollywood director if they were looking to cut costs. We probably have the most un-picky customers in the world.
No quotas, no one to answer to. Finally breaking an overhead lamp with his shoe, which gets stuck up in the ceiling. Jesse has to force his way into the lab; Walt has dramatically increased the air pressure to address the perceived threat. I hardly ever rewatch this episode because the most interesting part comes from that one scene where Walt confesses. He was responsible for the Death Star. He lives with his teenage son, who has cerebral palsy, and his wife, in New Mexico. Plus, Walter White himself may have started out well-intentioned enough, but he became a power-hungry murderer before all was said and done.
Jesse suggests spillage, evaporation, and other causes for their product's yield being low, but none of them make sense. Jesse counters by shutting off the laundromat's main breaker to regain entrance. In her eyes, her husband was suddenly becoming duplicitous and distant, and his entire persona seemed to change overnight. It was some—some nature program about elephants. It's Walt realizing that all his relationships, all his aspirations, his principles, his soul - they have all become irreversibly corrupted.
How could we believe this spineless schlub would kill two drug dealers a few hours later, unless we'd already been shown that he is so incapable of ignoring his conscience that he'll literally go without sleep for days? We know Jesse is angry to have been found out and shown to not be as smart as he thought he was. Then, when that failed, she tried to do something about it. Now apparently he wishes he was dead and not having to fret over being under threat from Gus so he fixates on the fly. Never gone to your house. I felt confined to the space and to the fly as much as Walt and Jesse. But any semblance of decency Walt had left died down in the crawl space if he even still had it after he let Jane die , and has been replaced by a desperate, wounded animal called Heisenberg who will do anything to survive. The choice of the Fly in the lab feels appropriate for multiple reasons.
I just didn't feel any of Walt's dialogue went far enough to be particularly interesting. Nevertheless, it would get my vote for the most gorgeous, most heartbreaking, and best written episode of the show to date. Can he really ignore the danger his stealing puts Mr. If joking, I took the bait. Do we believe Walter White would poison a child to pull off this plan? Instead Walt wakes up to find that Jesse had made a bed for him and done the cook without him.
Jesse suggests the Ebola virus but Walt dismisses the idea, saying the contaminate is a fly. I think it could make for hard work for someone not as invested in the show. Jesse prepares coffee and slips some sleeping pills into Walt's cup in an effort to force him to get some much-needed sleep. While he never outright states that Jesse is stealing their meth for himself, he warns him that if he is and Gus finds out, he wouldn't be able to protect him. He also almost tells Jesse his role in Jane's death, but it's subverted when Jessie misunderstands what he was saying. Walt can't tell Jesse truth without hurting him more; a dilemma that is brilliantly illustrated by having Jesse balanced dangerously on the ladder, likely to fall and break his neck if Walt were to admit to his role in Jane's death. Only Walt and Jesse appear in it, although we also hear Skyler's voice through the baby monitor.
I didn't get that the fly itself represents Walt's guilt, but his obsession over the fly definitely reflects his obsession with his actions and his guilt. I love Fly's hauntingly long scenes and its lack of music which reminded of Buffy's 'The Body'. No spoilers beyond this episode please, I'm watching for the first time. Skyler proposes that she and Walt pay the bills and has an interesting story to tell about how they can afford it. He knows Jesse is stealing, and if he says nothing, Gus will take Jesse out. Walt's greed, sloppy decision making, and poor choice of associates ultimately doomed them all, however, and Skyler was left holding the bag for all of his mistakes.
After a scuffle, the fly lands on Walt's head. A Gus who perishes instantly in the explosion still goes out in memorable fashion. Bryan Cranston is phenomenal as one of the most fascinating anti-heroes, or even of any kind of character, in either film or television. . Instead, she only found out about her husband's cancer after Walt had already decided to pursue a life of crime. If the coldness of the way he announces his victory to Skyler is startling and terrifying to her , it also feels in keeping with the masterful maneuver he just pulled off.
Walt's brother-in-law Hank is still recovering in the hospital and Marie is at a loss about what to do when she learns that their health plan will not necessarily provide the quantity and the quality of physical therapy required for Hank to fully recover the use of his legs. As part of Women's History Month , we're , l ooking at why , and more. When Jesse returns to work the next day, he notices Walt's car still parked outside the laundromat. Now we have Breaking Bad!!! Cranston then assumed the same exact position and close-ups were taken of his face. This is who Walt is: a guy who will use anything and anyone, innocent or guilty, to keep himself alive. The two return home the following morning. It was framed perfectly, made me feel tight in my chest and confined in a way few shows, or even movies, ever have.
