Thankfully, one big thing we got in "Bug" was some advancement on the Skyler/Car wash story. I’ve been frustrated with this storyline over the course of the season, as it seems as if it’s only being used as a means to describe to show how Walt is laundering his money.

It was a bit too convenient that Skyler just so happened to be cooking her books just as Ted walked in. The personification of cooking books just happened to walk through the door with an audit notice as she was doing the one thing she told Ted she would not.
