Ladies and Gentlemen, it’s time to start cooking again!

That’s right, the super lab is back, and in a surprising way that no one, not even me, could have seen coming. I love that the boys are back in business, but at the same time the palace intrigue has gotten to Game of Thrones levels of confusion. Or is it Scarface?

Well, let’s go visit some old friends, because it’s time to plan a party…

  • Once again, it’s so refreshing to see Mike being so utterly professional. How delicious was it that he was able to get so close to his guys. And of course he realizes what the hazard pay means: silence from his guys. See it’s thinking like that that will keep this unholy alliance together.
  • I’ve never been a big fan of Bob Odenkirk, but he’s doing stellar work as Gus. And the sheer terror that Gus has of Mike is interesting. He should be more afraid of Walt.
  • So Skyler’s smoking. Who wants to bet that a certain ricin cigarette will find itself into her pack at some point this season?
  • Marie! Everyone’s favorite klepto is back, y’all!
  • So the plan is pretty damn ingenious, and that’s the problem with Walt. He is intelligent, but he thinks that he knows everything. That’s why I was shocked that he’s trying to squeeze out Mike when Mike is doing what he has to do to keep the business solvent.
  • Who wasn’t creeped the fuck out by seeing Brock and Walt on the couch together?
  • And once again he manipulates Jesse to break up with Andrea, and manipulates Marie by telling her about Skyler’s affair with Ted.
  • I had to laugh at his Icarus comment at the end. Frankly, Walt is Icarus: he is the walking definition of hubris.
