Suddenly, the door opens and Jesse scrambles out of his seat. It's Skyler, and Jesse thinks the jig is up. But Walt just glowers at her, and then kind of darkly chuckles to himself about how he doesn't have to hide anything anymore. He re-introduces his wife to Jesse with a kind of petulant pride. "Meet my best friend and drug-dealing partner, you powerless bitch." Jesse is polite as ever and makes to quietly take off, but Walt's in a mood to make everybody miserable, so he insists that Jesse stay for dinner, then insists to Skyler that it's okay if he does. Skyler balls up her rage into a tiny hissing breath and says, "Why not?" Walt, to Jesse: "See?"
Awkward Dinner ahoy! Jesse is going to town on a plate of green beans, and he enthuses about them to a nonplussed Skyler. Slivered almonds! Just like his mom made 'em! Finally, almost out of pity for Jesse more than anything, Skyler tells them the beans are from the deli ... at Albertson's. She then sips her GIGANTIC wine glass. I'd like to think Skyler opted for the biggest, most ostentatious wine glasses she could find, just as a tiny act of domestic rebellion. Anyway, so much for Jesse making conversation. Skyler pours the wine up to the top of her cavernous glass, as Jesse switches to babbling about disappointing food vis-a-vis the packaging. Why does microwave lasagna end up so scabby? Nothing. No response. He gulps his water and is like, "Yeah, it's bad."
THEN, he changes the subject to how great Skyler's doing at the car wash, or so Walt tells him. At this, Skyler perks up, though not in a way that Jesse would want to see happen any place besides his nightmares. She's all, "Oh? What else did he tell you?" She turns to Walt: "Did you also tell him about my affair?" [Raises glass; sticks whole head inside and drinks.] She's not the only one trying to disappear into a glass. The way Aaron Paul slurps from his water glass, with his lips raised up to his nose, is the best thing he's ever done on this show. Walt, for his part picks at his teeth and radiates resentment. Skyler: "May I please be excused?" She pours herself more wine AS SHE WALKS AWAY. Farewell, my Queen of the Harpies! Here's your crown your majesty!
