Critic reviews for Something Unforgivable
Regardless of how long that wait ends up being, to see the pieces put into place in the back half of Season 5 has been nothing short of mesmerizing.
Although it may not have been as eventful as some might expect for a show that's one season away from being over, "Something Unforgivable" still delivers where it counts, and sets up some enticing teases for what's to come in the show's final season.
It is almost unreasonable how good a character Lalo is. To pull this off after five seasons of this show and the full run of Breaking Bad, to just up and introduce someone this charming and evil and perfect, is basically showing off.
"Something Unforgivable" was full of plenty of familiar faces and places from Breaking Bad, but it told a story aaallll its own.
Season 5 has somehow become the best season of an already great show, and now with one season left, almost all bets are off. In many ways, season 5 and the finale, "Something Unforgivable", have been about defying expectations.
It's been a profound, gripping journey through each of its seasons, and I would even posit that the series achieves the rare feat of meeting and in some ways exceeding Breaking Bad in the evenness of its plot development and storytelling.
