“Breaking Bad” brought Skyler fully into Walt’s world last season when she found out about his drug-making business, then concocted a spectacular lie to help him cover it up.
It looks like the show will revisit that lie in Sunday’s (Aug. 7) episode. The clip above has Walt (Bryan Cranston) and Skyler (Anna Gunn) going over the finer points of blackjack, the game at which he supposedly earned all his illicit cash. Walt, unsurprisingly, has gone to great lengths to study advanced blackjack theory and the ways in which he’ll explain his card-counting prowess to others. Skyler? She’s unimpressed when Walt busts on a few hands.
At this point, though, what’s most clear to us as viewers doesn’t occur to either of them until the end of the scene: Simpler is usually better when you’re making something up, particularly if you’re not entirely sure what you’re doing.
Whether that idea holds, we’ll find out when “Breaking Bad” airs at 10 p.m. ET Sunday on AMC.
