Breaking Bad Season 5 Review “Rabid Dog”

“Mr. White, he’s the devil. He’s smarter than you. He’s luckier than you.”

It always feels like it’s been so long since the last episode, but Breaking Bad finally returned tonight with an episode title reminiscent of season four episode “Problem Dog”, but this time it was titled “Rabid Dog”. The episode was written and directed by Sam Catlin, who has written ten episodes ofBreaking Bad, but has never directed anything before. It was risky to hand an episode over to a first-time director this late in the season, but overall I thought he did a pretty solid job. While not the most mind-blowing episode I’ve ever seen, “Rabid Dog” did a great job at moving the story along and gave us a very clear indication of how Jesse and Walt’s story will end.
