Storyline

Now that Walt has signed the divorce papers, Skyler tries to speak to him about how they'll approach the subject with Walt Jr. Walt starts working in his new lab and meets his new lab assistant. The Mexican Cousins are back, but all they seem to do is sit in Gus' restaurant, not ordering anything but certainly getting the staff on edge. Hank's investigation into the RV now gives him a connection to Jesse. Who better to call for information than Jesse's one time teacher and marijuana customer Walt? When Jesse hears that Walt is trying to get rid of the RV, he leads Hank right to them. Written by garykmcd

Unexpectedly, a great episode for once again
22 November 2013 | by axel-kochSee all my reviews

Though the opening scene of "Sunset" is really great, you could have never guessed from it how intense the episode's final moments would be. Without any action, just with the means of television drama, writer and director Josh Shiban manages to glue you to the screen and keep you hooked with two outstanding cliffhangers that will get intertwined in the succeeding episode.

But back to "Sunset": Season three's sixth episode picks up from a point in the series, in which the entertainment factor is rather low and brings Breaking Bad back to former magnitude just by taking some of the parts everyone loved about the first two season (the process of cooking meth, Walt and Jesse being in peril together) and adorning them with some new aspects. Two of the show's newer parts, Giancarlo Esposito and the Mercada brothers, also get to share a scene together and impress with their extraordinary acting talents. The two scenes with Skyler and Walter Jr. were sub-par, but that doesn't carry too much weight since – as I said – there are only two scenes with them. Besides that, "Sunset" got me excited about the show again and definitely had some rememberable moments – for me, these were the introduction of Walt's new assistant Gale (played by David Costabile), the destroying of the RV, which was executed in the most fantastic manner, and, of course, the intense moments at the junkyard.
