Breaking Bad gives us another extremely cold open as we see the coolest kid you will never be dirt biking through the desert and then befriending a cuddly tarantula. Opening Credits! Who is this kid? I don’t know, but I’m guessing he’s going to be revisited somewhere this episode. Walt pays Hank a visit at his new fancy boss man office and breaks down about Skyler. Hank, being an uncomfortable straight man around other straight man tears, leaves. Giving Walt the opportunity to plant a bug in Hank’s office. What is he going to use that for I wonder?
Down in some basement somewhere, Mike, Jesse and Walt kidnap Lydia to try and get to the bottom of the whole methlymine bugging incident. Jesse is on her side, not wanting to spill blood, trigger happy Mike is looking to shoot someone in the head and all Walt cares about is keeping the meth juice flowing. Lydia snivels and bit and promises it wasn’t her. Mike offers her a deal, call Hank, ask him if one of his guys put the bug on the barrel during the investigation or he shoots her in the head. Lydia obliges but to her misfortune, Hank knows nothing about it. The three baldies put it to a vote and all but Jesse want her dead. But heavens! The bug Walt put in Hank’s office picks up Hank talking to some out of town cops who stupidly put the bugs on every single barrel in plain sight. And Lydia lives another day!
Now the problem lies in stealing the methlymine barrels that are all traceable. Lydia, with the hail Mary idea, suggests they rip off the shipment of meth juice. And so the gang devises a plan to rob a train! Oh lordy, we’ve gone into the wild west!
Follow free wheelin’ Jesse through the JUMP!
