Riding high off its best season premiere to date (3.3 million viewers), AMC’s critically lauded drama ‘Breaking Bad‘ returns Sunday night (10 p.m.) with a fresh new episode, “Caballo Sin Nombre.”
Translated as “Horse With No Name,” the title’s labeled for the controversial (re: drugs, man) hit America song which plays at the episode’s outset.
Fun Fact: With lyrics “I’ve been through the desert on a horse with no name / It felt good to be out of the rain / In the desert, you can’t remember your name / ’cause there ain’t no one for to give you no pain,” song writer Dewey Bunnell has said the track was inspired by childhood memories of family road trips through the deserts of Arizona and New Mexico. Drug references included, it all seems quite appropriate given ‘Breaking Bad’s Albuquerque “cooking in the desert” setting, no?
In a sneak peek clip from “Caballo” below, “criminal” lawyer Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) pays a visit to the motel-dwelling Walter White (Bryan Cranston) with the intention of reinvigorating the latter’s interest in the drug trade.
With yet another equine reference, Saul advises: “Get back on the horse and do what you do best. First step: Talk to our friend, and get cooking.”
How does Walt respond? Watch and tune in to episode two of ‘Breaking Bad’ Sunday night at 10 p.m. on AMC.
