Just watched Season 4, episode 8: ''Hermanos''. Probably the best episode of the series so far. Loved seeing a bit of Gustavo's backstory and now I completely identify with the man. I didn't care much for Gus at first, just thought he made an excellent villain but now I sympathise with him a lot. Seeing that happen to his best friend has to be the reason why he's such a cold man. Everything has become clearer now and its quite symbolic, ''los pollos hermanos'' represents the pair, as well as the two chickens on the sign. Gustavo and his partner also run parallel to the partnership between Walt and Jesse and they are both extremely similar in their loyalty to each other. I think this is the reason why Gus has decided to start taking Jesse under his wing as well, he respects Jesse's loyalty and clearly sees part of himself or his partner in him, which one though I have no idea.
