YMMV / Breaking Bad S 3 E 2 Caballo Sin Nombre

  • Harsher in Hindsight: Saul clearly takes a great deal of pleasure in one-upping the stuffy lawyer Jesse's parents hired, who obviously disapproves of Saul's methods. This becomes much more meaningful when we learn that Saul's brother was a similarly upscale lawyer who looked down on Saul (then Jimmy) in the same manner.
  • Paranoia Fuel: The end of the episode shows that your house can be very insecure and easy to break into. Despite Skyler taking the precaution to change the locks, Walt still manages to get inside. (And without breaking a window or sliding glass door, which he could have done and allowed him to gain access more easily than the way he did.) Mike easily manages to plant a bug in a way that it's likely that nobody will ever notice. And most nightmarishly, the Cousins stroll right into the house after Walt leaves the door unlocked, with the intent of savagely murdering Walt as soon as he gets out of the shower. People you may know nothing about can easily gain access to your house or invade your privacy, and to a professional criminal the average house has only feeble defenses that they can easily circumvent. Have fun thinking about that before you go to sleep tonight.

How well does it match the trope?
