Marie tells Hank that Skyler "inferred" that Walter Jr. was smoking marijuana. That's the wrong word: Skyler implied it; Marie herself inferred it from what Skyler had said. This is a common error. See more »


Walter White: You told him my name.
Jesse Pinkman: Oh, says who, him?
Walter White: [roughly grabbing him] My name, where I work. You told him about my son!
Jesse Pinkman: Hey, don't touch me!
Walter White: [grabbing Jesse's stash] Damn junkie.
Jesse Pinkman: No, give me that. That's mine.
Walter White: This is going down the toilet. Watch it go.
Jesse Pinkman: [sitting down on the seat] No, no! That's worth 40 grand, you stupid shit.
Walter White: It's worth nothing when you smoke it all!

More Awesomeness!
13 August 2013 | by g-bodylSee all my reviews

The third episode of Season 1 is just as good and perhaps a bit more dramatic than the two previous episodes. This episode is really the first time we see Walt reach his breaking point and it's a dandy to watch. The acting is good as ever and I'm glad we get to see Hank, the DEA agent again because I like he brings some over-the-top acting to his character.

This episode, "...And the Bag's in the River" has Walt deciding on whether or not he should kill his prisoner, Krazy 8. Meanwhile, it's believed that Walt Jr has been on pot, so Hank is asked to have a little chat with him.

Overall, this is an excellent episode that continues the high quality this series is bringing to television. It's more intense and there is a shocking twist. I am now officially addicted to the series. I rate this episode 9/10.
