Saul’s Suit #26: The Paddle

Suit #26: “The Paddle”

Breaking Bad S4E4, “Bullet Points”

“Yeah, you do seem to have a little shit creek action going.”

“Goose egg. Bupkis. That’s what the cops got.”

In this scene, Walt is complaining that he’s the only person who seems to be behaving with any professionalism, but meanwhile, Saul is looking pretty darn professional to me in dapper dark gray, royal blue and burnt orange. His French cuffs even fit properly for once. The strong, dark colors lend an air of seriousness to their conversation. We see a return of the damask striped shirt. This is the first time that Saul suggests Walt disappear himself and his family—which would certainly mean one less giant headache for Saul, albeit less money. The cinematography in this scene shows Walt looming larger than life in Saul’s office like a shadowy monster, filling the screen.

Below, a look at the use of blue and burnt orange in other key scenes of the episode, including the orange of the Pollos Hermanos labels inside the blue freezer truck, and Hank’s burnt orange shirt in his blue-lit bedroom when Walt encounters Gale’s karaoke video—one of the most devastating moments of TV I’ve ever seen.
