What You’re Saying About Mike’s Beatdown of Walt


Throughout Breaking Bad Season 4, AMC will award Talk Forum commenters quoted in our weekly “What You’re Saying” post with prizes (limit one per person). The week, commenters will receive Season 3 DVD sets. Next week: Heisenberg T-Shirts.

Commenters this week reacted to Mike’s violence toward Walt when in Episode 2 the latter proposed the two team up against Gus. What were Mike’s motivations, and how would Gus react? The fans have their theories:

• “I think Mike is as scared of Gus as Walt is, and he beat him up just for show. If word got back to Gus… Gus would put two and two together and whack Mike before they could team up.” — Peter

• “The beatdown from Mike was a message: Just cook.” — mikey

• “Mike probably was defending Gus, but he is also definitely questioning his loyalties to Gus.” — KENNY H.
