Betsy Brandt Interview

‘Breaking Bad’ Q&A: Betsy Brandt on Marie’s Purple Reign

Source: rollingstone.com

The slap itself was the sound of that relationship rupturing.
Yeah, I love that they chose that. Marie doesn’t think about it like, “Well, that deserves a slap” – it’s just the reaction.

Specifically, it’s a reaction to her realization that Skyler knew what Walt was up to back when Hank got shot. Now she has to choose between her sister and her husband.
It’s funny: Back when Hank was shot, there’s this scene in the hospital where Marie is mad at Walt, and says, “You had something to do with this! You knew!” She has some inkling . . . and then everyone looks at her like she’s crazy, and then she looks at herself like she’s crazy. That’s not saying that Marie knew everything all the time, but it was a little sign that Walt is an amazing criminal, but no criminal is perfect.

It’s easy to forget now because her recent material has been so heavy, but Marie was frequently a comic-relief character.
Compared to the other work I’ve done on TV, Breaking Bad was funny. In the beginning, I described it as a dark comedy. You and I both would. As the seasons went on and on, I described it as a very, very, very, very dark, dark, dark comedy. When people ask me, “How’s The Michael J. Fox Show?,” I say, “It’s definitely funnier.” But even that moment between Marie and Skyler was really fun to do. Let me tell you, it was a horrible, exhausting day, but it was also a great day. I also say that about the scene [in an earlier season] when Skyler yells at Marie to shut up. That was a really fun day!

Well, this confrontation was years in the making.
That’s exactly what I said to Tom Schnauz, who wrote that episode: “We’ve waited for this scene for seasons.” Even in that moment, when you’re working, there was some sense of “Oh my God, that moment is here.”
