Two of the best parts of co-writing a book like this (aside from simply being able to co-write a book like this) is that (a) the workload is shared and (b) you get to see things from more than just your own angle. My co-author, Ensley F. Guffey, is in the midst of writing a longer piece for Wanna Cook? that deals with the concept of place in Breaking Bad.*
"Place?" you say. "It's in Albuquerque. Got it." No, not that kind of place. (Although you're right.) Think of it this way - you buy a house, but you make a home. If you get that, you're well on your way to understanding the significant differences between "space" and "place." And this is a concept with which Breaking Bad's cup just runneth over.
Think of the RV, where Jesse & Walt spend such significant amounts of time early in the show - and think of that scene in which the faithful, shot-up RV goes to its final reward, marking the end of an era.

|Will Walt's fate be much different?|
|Somehow, lace curtains don't seem gangsta to me.|
