Geeks Who Drink Hosts Breaking Bad Quiz

Similar to Pulp Fiction’s The Wolf, Mike was the guy to call to get you out of bind. But his allegiances were murky and he had a conscience in the form of granddaughter Kaylee. His I’d-rather-be-fishing face was priceless, and the show could definitely have used more Jesse and Mike episodes as comic relief, or more Hank vs. Mike interrogations at the DEA. Alas, Mike was offed by power-hungry Walt and we never got to see him retire.
Early on, it was easy to hate Skyler. She was an annoying and ball-busting busybody. But her steamy and scandalous affair with book cookin’ Ted was the validation all Skyler detractors needed to continue hatin’. His spineless spending was just the icing on the cake.
Even in his rickety chair, Hector Salamanca instilled an uneasy undercurrent in all of his scenes. Was it the scowl? Was it the dinging? Was it his inability to talk that was never really explained? Regardless, Tio was a loose cannon and one of TV’s most psychotic characters. The flashback that revealed his discipline skills over the brothers still gives us chills.
Watching Jesse woo and fall for Jane was both welcome and terrifying—we predicted this wasn’t going to end well. When firecracker Jane blackmailed Walt for Jesse’s share, viewers knew she wasn’t going to last very long. Her death and its fall out helped Aaron Paul deliver some of Jesse Pinkman’s best scenes to date.
