Hank deals with the troubling implications of a new lead in the Heisenberg case.

The opening, with Hobo Walt returning to his abandoned home, felt like a peek into a bleak, parallel universe. The “Heisenberg” graffiti, the neighbor freaking out upon seeing Walt (nicely mirrored a bit later in the episode)… One of the most exciting openers on this show, and that’s saying a lot.

Hank has a habit of losing his shit when he feels incompetent, but that’s a new low of shit-losing. Poor guy genuinely looked on the verge of a heart attack. By the way, it’s nice that the episode starts right where the last one left off. Nice fan service there.

Walt may be transferring his empire-building ambitions to the car wash business. Then Lydia shows up, and Skyler goes all mama bear on her. You know, waiting for each episode to come out once a week is gonna be a royal pain in the butt. Can we please have them all now?

Badger and Skinny Pete talk Star Trek, and sound right out of a “Clerks” outtake. This scene was oddly hilarious, but it went on for a long time, and was infatuated with its own cleverness. Easy to overlook considering the quality level of the rest of the episode, but a puzzling decision nonetheless.

Jesse, wracked with guilt, decides to distribute his money to random people. At least he’s doing something besides sad-watching his beard grow.

Wow, we’re getting a Hank-Walt confrontation already? This show has made a habit of taking us by surprise, but even then we didn’t expect things to come to a head so fast. This is gonna be a long, long week.
