Chez Pinkman, everyone is finally out of gas, even Badger and Skinny Pete, the former of whom complains that he's been awake for three straight days and is turning into a Sleestak. Heh. Jesse practically starts crying before they're even out the door, but holds it together to tell them everything's cool, and sure, hanging out next week sometime would be just peachy. When he retreats back inside, though, he sinks down in front of one of the speakers and starts doing this cry-shiver thing that's totally chilling. I mean, the epic distortion from those massive speakers is a contributing factor, but still. I'd like to tell you it'll be okay, Jesse, but I don't really see how that will be the case. At least not until next year's Emmys.
An obvious slowdown from the breakneck pace of the last few episodes, which was probably sorely needed. Joe R will be back for next week's full recap (I'm still doing next week's recaplet). Stay tuned!
