In season 4 of Breaking Bad Gomez has grown a goatee. Is there some sort of link to Walter or something? It is after all his "trademark". So I thought they wouldn't just give anybody one, or am I just looking for something?
To me, for a cop, Gomez is sort of a goofy, not-very-confident kind of guy. That was cool with me – that was the character, that's who he was. He grew, though. All that's happened since he separated from Hank, when they sent him to El Paso and he came back with a beard [laughs] – like a growing-up, becoming-a-man kind of thing, you know? He's a little tougher, a little more confident.
