‘Breaking Bad’ Season Four Premiere Coverage: All About Jesse
Walter White, [Bryan Cranston] is back in one of the most anticipated dramas to hit television, “Breaking Bad.” While the first fifteen minutes of the show were intense as we witness the aftermath of a murder that involves Jesse from the prior season finale, it wasn’t the usual excellent television the show provides.
As fans anxiously awaited for the premiere, they finally had one of the major questions answered: Did Jesse pull the trigger? With that major question out of the way, the season four premiere was not great, but was good enough to give an idea of how the rest of the season will go.
“Box Cutter” involved Walt and Jesse, as they were held at the underground meth Lab. A gruesome scene involved Gus, who unexpectedly slices one of his associates throat and made the audience think he was going to kill both Walt and Jesse. The scary part about this scene is not only the blood and gore, but how Gus acted nonchalantly and cool, almost as if he did not commit this horrific murder. Even though Gus might be a calm individual, it is clear now that he is all business and will kill with no problem.
In other plot lines, Skylar is worried about her husbands whereabouts while Marie is still collecting money for her husbands physical therapy although the bills seem to be higher. It was sad to see Marie’s husband Hank, Norris, be in such a helpless condition. Marie feels that he is making progress, but the reality is that he is not.
In the end, there were no shocks, or action in this episode. Towards the episode’s climax, the audience gets an idea of how the season will play out, and how the plot should develop as the show moves forward. The question is will Walt and Jesse make on move on Gus before knowing what he is capable of? Only time will tell, but this season thus far looks like it will have a plot line similar to season two.
Is this another Tuco problem, or worse?
