Season 2, Episode 5: Breakage – Live Blog (Part 2 of 4)

Hank is talking to his boss at the office and mentions that now that Tuco is gone, people have been mentioning this name “Heisenberg” on the street as the new person to go to for good meth. Of course, we know this is Walt. Then, Hank’s boss announces his promotion to a new border task force, which means he’ll be splitting his time between Albuquerque and El Paso. Hank walks out of the office, as usual, as confident as ever. Once he got on the elevator, however, his face dropped. He starts feeling dizzy and it almost seems like he is having a panic attack. This is a vulnerable side of Hank we have never seen before. Could he be suffering post-traumatic stress from his shoot-out with Tuco? Maybe the thought of a promotion to a bigger and possibly more dangerous location actually terrifies him rather than excites him.


Now we see Jesse at the repair yard, where he has just made a deal with Clovis for him to store his trailer for him there. He then buys a car from Clovis though we can’t see what it looks like. Wonder what it is… An old, broken-down, tiny red station wagon. Not much like his previous bouncing car aside from the color. It seems that all the wealth that Walt and Jesse thought they would be able to acquire and keep from their drug dealing seems to have gone down the drain. Jesse has a beaten down car, and Walt can just barely afford to pay for his current treatment. The drug life has not been very good to them at all.

Here Jesse is being shown around an apartment for rent by a striking girl named Jane, played by Krysten Ritter who also starred in ABC’s “Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23,” which is funny because her character in Breaking Bad runs an apartment complex and definitely has a sassy attitude. It’s hard not to notice the chemistry between Jesse and Jane. They’re not openly flirting, but there is definitely a spark between them, especially since Jane goes out on a limb to allow Jesse to rent the apartment. So now these two are going to be living directly next door to each other. We can certainly take a wild guess to where this is going…
