“Breaking Bad” kicked off the last half of its final stretch Sunday with the best episode of the batch yet.
Supremely clever, suspenseful and perfectly paced, “To’hajiilee” is a tour de force. It pit Walt and Jesse in a thrilling battle of wits as each man attempted to trick the other into taking his bait. Walt used a little boy to try to get to Jesse; Jesse used a big barrel of money to try to get to Walt.
“To’hajiilee” also marked a pivotal moment for Walter White — a hollow victory of sorts against Heisenberg in the tug-of-war for his soul.
