There are some episodes that seem to lend themselves to crazy art concepts more than others, and “Black Blotter” is one of those. What I particularly liked about “Black Blotter” was that it seemed to put closure on Walter’s drug use. Not that I am against Walter’s drug use, but he never actually had a bad trip until this episode (although, his trip in “LSD” ended badly). Walter’s trip in this episode started off rather fun but soon got to be a bit of a downer. I think in order to put Walter on a higher plane at the end, we had to see him in a situation where the drugs just weren’t going to do it for him any more.
But I think he is having fun here.
