Last week’s sweet, domestic scene where Jesse plays video games with his girlfriend and her son, was really too good to be true. The poisoned cigarette, once destined for Gus, was used to poison her son, as a catlyst for Jesse to kill Walt. Jesse holds the gun to Walt’s head, but in the end he can’t go through with it. The team is reunited with the common goal of killing Gus.
I’ve always been invested in Jesse the most. It’s sad to watch him care about people and then lose them. No connection ever really works out for Jesse.
In this episode, I also really like the quiet moment when Skylar goes out onto the deck to smoke a cigarette ( a common trope in the episode?) The sun is setting, it’s a beautiful western evening with the person guarding the house behind her.
