This notion of consequences has always figured heavily in Breaking Bad’s highly moral and tightly wound universe — we were taught two years ago that there are no half measures. But the lesson has never been as artfully or brutally conveyed as it was last night. The poor, doomed Grit delivery boy from the teaser — lonely and risk-taking, like a denim-clad mini-Pinkman — was brave enough to fondle the tarantula for a few fleeting seconds. But what he really wanted was to own the danger, to carry it home with him; to have it under control. This, of course, isn’t possible. The bug stayed in its bottle, but the kid got bit anyway.
Click that thang for the full Grantland recap by Andy Greenwald, which is well worth your time.
