Madness descends as past decisions rise to hurt those that Walt loves most
**Warning this review contains spoilers from the eleventh episode of Breaking Bad **
Coming into this week’s episode of Breaking Bad I had no idea what to expect. After the greatness that was last week’s episode, all I could do was wait in eager anticipation for what came next. Well this week’s episode, Crawl Space, was unexpected to say the least, as Walt dives into madness, and things get crazy.
The opening shot begins the episode rather sinisterly, and reflects the absolute madness of the episode overall, as medical professional take out their extensive medical equipment in preparation for whom we can only assume is Gus and Mike. As Jesse blares the horn of the car going to the medical station, and nearly drives through the place, doctors are already on their way grabbing Gus and brining him inside. As they focus on Gus, Mike is left bleeding in the car, Jesse by his side. “This man needs help!” Jesse yells to the doctors in reference to Mike. “This man pays my salary,” the doctor slyly responds. This irked me just as much as it did Jesse. Mike has been nothing but a loyal ally, and great hit man for Gus. Yet when it comes down to it, Gus’ life is worth more, and Mike is just another body. In terms of Jesse though, I think this bugged him because he is essentially the same thing a Mike, replaceable, and so ultimately his future is uncertain.
