Season four of one of the best shows on TV starts off slowly with the various relationships between different characters being mended. Walt is trying to patch things up with his wife, son and partner in crime, Jesse. Meanwhile Jesse is trying to work things out with Gus, who has to be one of the most memorable quiet villains ever on TV. And then there’s Hank and Marie who have their own set of problems to work through. So everyone’s trying to patch things up and like we all know, that takes time.

Other than that it’s business as usual in Albuquerque, New Mexico… there’s meth to be made and both the DEA and the Mexicans to avoid. The tension keeps building though with Hank’s suspicions about the drug trade in his hometown slowly taking shape. The 13 episodes are like a deadly game of cat-and-mouse between Walt and Gus, and it all leads up to a brilliant season finale that makes me look forward to season 5, which will unfortunately also be the series’ final season.
