5-sentence review of Breaking Bad: Buyout

Season 5, Episode 6: “Buyout”

5. Jesse (Aaron Paul) morns the kid murdered in the previous episode and Mike (Jonathan Banks) comes up with a plan to dissolve the business and end the partnership.

4. Walter (Bryan Cranston), of courses, is having none of it as he relishes the gangster he thinks he’s become.

3. Walter tries to steal the chemicals, but Mike ties him up and then Walt shows one of those moments of badassery that’s made him famous: He frees himself from a plastic handcuff by burning through the binding with an electrical chord, burning his wrist in the process.

2. It reminded me of that scene from “Lawrence of Arabia,” when T.E. Lawrence held his hand over a match, admitting it hurts but saying, “The trick … is not minding that it hurts.”

1. Everybody else hurts — Mike wants to spend time with his grandkid, Skyler (Anna Gunn) is miserable in her marriage and Jessie just wants out — but Walter just keeps turning up the flame.
