HUBRIS IN MOROCCO
Welcome back, old friend.
A strong start for Breaking Bad, season 5B. I loved seeing the White house in decay, loved seeing "Heisenberg" spray painted on the wood paneling, loved the way Walt startled his neighbor.
And then it was just story, story, story and not a lot of action, which makes sense with only seven more episodes to go. Gotta lay a lot of pipe for all the twists and turns ahead. Everybody was represented, every character got some screen time.
But I'm glad Walt confronted Hank. That had to happen fast, right? And it had to end with a threat. We hear Walt say very firmly, "that is not going to happen," probably not for the last time.
And then this:
"If that's true, if you don't know who I am . . .then maybe your best course would be to tread lightly."
One down, seven to go.
