Breaking Bad – Season 4 Recap – Crawl Space

This season of Breaking Bad has done what it does best, deliver the drama in a slow and intense way.  This whole season the tension has been building and last Sunday’s episode, Crawl Space delivered more drama than most shows do all season. 

Gus continues to show you how much of a heartless person he can be.  Yet, not just heartless but also clever.  The man has a plan A-Z for all occasions.  With the cartel in ruins, Gus and Mike dying, jesse drives them to a makeshift hospital Gus has prepared.  Once at the location, the doctors are able to save and revive Gus.  Jesse finds out just how prepared Gus is as he see’s a fridge full of everyone’s blood for transfusions.  The doctor starts to rattle off Jesse’s blood type, age, allergies and everything else.  Gus and Jesse walk out and Gus says that Jesse can take over the lab.  Jesse says that he wont cook if Walt is killed.  That he should be fired instead. 

With Gus revived they make there way back home.  Walter is panicked about his brother in law and not knowing what’s going on in Mexico.  Walter is staking out the chicken farm with his brother in law Hank.  Hank tells him he’s heard about a bloodbath in Mexico but doesn’t have much information.  Hank then takes Walt on a little detour.  He’s going to check out the laundromat where he has been cooking.

Walt gets nervous and crashes his car on purpose to avoid staking the place out.  Later on the episode we see Walt smuggled into the laundromat in dirty clothes.  When Walt gets to the lab he can tell that the lab has been in use.  That someone has been cooking while he recuperated from his car accident.  He knows that it has to be Jesse.

Walt goes to Jesse’s house and there we see him playing video games.  Walt pleads with Jesse, telling him that he needs his help. That Gus is training Jesse to replace him and there going to kill him.  Jesse responds in anger to Walt reminding him that the last time he asked Walt for help that Walt said he hoped Jesse ended up in a barrel in Mexico.  Walt goes to leave and is met by Gus’s body gaurds who taze him until he is unconscious. 

Walt is now hooded and bonded and in the middle of the desert.  Gus takes off Walt’s hood and tells him he is fired.  Walt laughs, saying he knows Jesse wont cook for him if he’s killed.  That this proves his point that no matter what Gus has done that Jesse is still loyal to him.  Gus says that its true, but that doesn’t mean anything about what he will do to Walt’s brother in law.  Gus has a hit out on Hank.  He also says if he is warned in any way shape or form that he will kill Walt’s wife, son and daughter.  Walt can see just how serious Gus is.  After Gus leaves Walt begins a mad dash and the most intense closing scenes ever starts.

Walt goes to Saul, asking for the number of the guy to make him and his family disappear.  Saul gives him the number and tells him he needs a large amount of money.  Walter pleads with Saul to warn the DEA about a hit on Hank and Saul reluctantly agrees.  Walt heads home and goes to the crawl space.  He starts opening the money bags to see he doesn’t have enough.  Skylar comes in and Walt asks where the money is.  She tells him what she did with the money.  Walt lays down and starts screaming and crying uncontrollably.  His cries give way to laughter and the look on Skylars face is amazingly haunting.  The phone rings and its Marie. She is crying on the answering machine saying its happening again.  The Cartel has put a hit on Hank.  As Skylar answers the phone you hear Walt laughing as the camera pans up from him.  In his crawl space, as if a premonition as to what will now happen to Walt.
