Breaking Bad | Season 5 | Episode 12 | “Rabid Dog”
After four and a half seasons of being pushed around, Jesse is finally wresting the rudders back and will get his revenge. Or will he? If there’s one thing that Breaking Bad has been consistent on, it’s cooking up surprises for us.
Gasoline is a complex mixture of hydrocarbons, and is notoriously difficult to get out of fabrics. In Walt’s case, if the stuff has soaked into wooden flooring then he really is out of luck – the cleaners may be able to remove some of it with solvents and heat, but the smell would remain. Could Walt have lied his way out of it more effectively? Perhaps he could have faked a petrol bomb (that didn’t ignite) from a disgruntled former car wash employee?
As mentioned on the A.V. Club, Marie pretty much quotes the Wikipedia article for saxitoxin. She doesn’t have Walt’s flair for microbiology to make ricin, though where she’d get shellfish toxins from and how she’d get Walt to eat something she’d handled is also a mystery.
“I’m going to get you where you really live.” What’s Jesse’s new plan? He can’t be talking about a physical location, and probably wouldn’t go after Walt’s family. I think that he’s going to try and undermine the Heisenberg myth; reveal the man behind the meth and destroy the persona that Walt has built up. That is, if Walt doesn’t have him killed first.
