The central action sequence in this episode was exciting and thrilling. Gus’s revenge is contained within a rare bottle of tequila. I loved seeing Jesse truly come into his own, although he does still need Mike’s advice. However, the most fascinating part of the sequence may have been Gus methodically folding his jacket and laying it across the sink before he vomits up the poisonous alcohol. His character is all about restraint even as the murders are also a form of revenge for his dead partner. The camera focuses on the cartel kingpin as he falls into the pool, just like Gus’s friend. I’m really worried for Mike though. I’ve come to care about his character and his recovering ear.
I’m still thinking about Walt’s conversation with Walt Jr. I’m not sure whether to believe Walt or not. Perhaps, he really is opening up now. He calls Walt Jr. Jesse by mistake, showing that he might really care about the person who’s been closest to him throughout the last year.
