What if he knew that Walt felt closer to Jesse, and had a more authentic relationship with Jesse, than he does with his own son, whom he still treats like a helpless child? “That’s good, Jesse,” Walt says, after Walt Jr. puts him down. [x]
and yet by the end of the series Jesse is making the same criticisms of Water that Jr. makes in the episode recaped: that Walter is fake, that he is constantly disingenuous in his relationships and that it is frightening. Jr says he would rather have the broken, suffering dad then the one who is trying to create trust and emotional security with manipulation. Despite Walter’s more authentic bond with Jesse (and I don’t dispute that he has a more nuanced relationship with Jesse then with Jr.) his fundamental weakness of character fouls that relationship too.
