#Breaking Good Companion for 1x06
Observations: “Sometimes a high point can be a low point, too. Take Walt’s initial confrontation with Tuco, the meth-addled psychopath who beat Jesse to a pulp before stealing his money and drugs. To the world, it looks like a daring daylight raid on the enemy compound, featuring the debut of Walt’s hat-wearing Heisenberg alter ego and a don’t-you-know-I’m-loco use of explosives. Walt certainly sees it as a victory, growling like a triumphant predator over a fresh kill and pounding the wheel of his car in celebration as hundred-dollar bills flutter all around him. But a win for Heisenberg is a loss for the man Walt used to be, and his sheer enjoyment of coming out on top is proof that something very bad inside him has been waiting a lifetime to get out.”

#Breaking Good Companion for 1x06

The title of this episode Crazy Handful of Nothin’ refers to the family card game where Walt is able to beat Hank in a game of poker despite having any good cards; i.e. “a handful of nothing”.

Additionally, it refers to the scene where Walt is able to take down Tuco’s HQ with a “crazy handful” of fulminated mercury.

It can also be seen as a reference to the clumps of hair Walt pulls out in the shower. [x]
