BREAKING BAD Recap: “Dead Freight”


It’s quite difficult to write a spoiler-free opening paragraph here after being so amped up by the hour’s finale.  As the rest of "Dead Freight" ambled on I took it as a middling episode.  Walt continues to hone, with exceptionally creepy precision, his ability to lie and manipulate those closest to him.  Mike, Walt and Jesse talk business, Jesse remains the moral compass and the greatest out of the box thinker of the trio, and screen time spent with Marie saturated us in purple.  Normal Breaking Bad stuff – and it was great, but not exceptional (I’m being a purposefully harsh judge – when a show sets a standard this high, I think it deserves a sharper critical eye).  And then that last thing happened, and my mouth just hung agape for several minutes afterwards.  For more on The Moment and why "it’s all about the weight, yo," hit the jump.
