Suffering From Withdrawal? Here Is the Very Best of the First Three Seasons of ‘Breaking Bad’ – #10

Top 10 Episodes #10

Season 2, Episode 7: Negro Y Azul

Directed by Félix Enríquez Alcalá

Written by Vince Gilligan & John Shiban

“Tortuga means ‘Turtle.’ That’s me: I take my time, but I always win.” -Tortuga

Negro Y Azul‘ appears on this list simply for having the biggest “WTF” moment of the entire series so far. This is the episode that featured the cartel folks decapitating Tortuga (well-played, in a brief cameo by actor Danny Trejo), and placing his head over an actual turtle, wired to explode. At this point we haven’t met Gus anywhere yet, but the introduction of the Cartel makes us realize just how over his head, Walt is, and just how relentless and dangerous the drug lords can be. It’s always refreshing to take the show out of the suburbs from time to time, and showing us just how far Walt’s actions can reach.
