Name of towing company (and same place RV was stored) as labeled on side of the truck is called "Crank It Up". Crank is another street name for meth. See more »


Early in the episode we see Walt arrive at the house during the day with Skylar on the phone at the dining room table, the patio doors letting lots of sunshine into the room. When we see Walt at an angle with the kitchen behind him, that room is completely dark and not visible - since the kitchen has it's own window it should also be bright with sunshine. See more »

Making business
17 January 2016 | by tenshi_ippikiookamiSee all my reviews

Pinkman, who doesn't really seem to want to, and Walter start their business, with the help of Pinkman's friends.

This episode keeps the faster pace that it has been having in the last episodes. This is the beginning of Walter and Pinkman's kingdom, and it shows how the business starts.

However, "Breaking Bad" is still more interested in Walter's decision of destroying everything, and you can see how he is trying to control everything and everyone because he hasn't really done that ever. And lost Pinkman is the perfect victim for this violent and repressed man, who is making poor Pinkman his puppet. Walter White is showing a more violent and mean face with every episode, a man capable of everything, now that he is unleashed.

Good acting, focus and interesting plot development. Good episode overall.
