Last week on "Breaking Bad," Skyler White (Anna Gunn) finally seemed to get the upper hand on her husband, Walter (Bryan Cranston).
Earlier this season, Skyler successfully faked a suicide attempt to help convince her sister, Marie Schrader (Betsy Brandt) and her husband, Hank (Dean Norris) to take in her children, Walt Jr. (R.J. Mitte) and Holly so that Skyler and Walt could "work out their issues."
While Walt seemed to win the initial mind game with his increasingly estranged wife, he appeared to be somewhat shaken when Skyler related how much he had changed… to the point where Walt causally told Skyler a story about Jesse (Aaron Paul) holding a gun against his head as if it was a teachable lesson for her. Thus, when Skyler offered to keep laundering his money in exchange for keeping the kids out of the house, Walt apparently accepted her terms.
Which isn't to say that Walt Jr. is okay with any of this or that Hank and Marie have any idea about what is really happening. But in this extended preview from Sunday's episode, Marie gets more truth out of Skyler than she has in months. And if Skyler breaks down completely, it would trigger some serious consequences for everyone involved…
Thus far, AMC hasn't revealed how the shocking end to the train heist will play out this week. But from the brief synopsis, Jesse won't be forgetting that anytime soon.
"Still upset over the many divisions of their profits, Walt tries to discuss payment terms with Mike. Meanwhile, occupational hazards start to weigh heavily on Jesse."
"Breaking Bad" continues its final season, Sunday night at 10pm on AMC!
