Storyline

A boy on a motorbike finds a large tarantula in the desert. Walter pays a visit to Hank in the new office; Walt's intentions are not entirely above board. The team's search for methylamine continues, with Michael and Lydia at odds, and Jesse wanting to obtain the chemical without resorting to murder. They hatch an elaborate plan involving buried tanks, a train trestle, and a stalled truck. The children remain with Hank and Marie to Junior's increasing anger and frustration. Skyler lays more of her cards on the table. What price success? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Quotes

Mike Ehrmantraut: [threatening Lydia] Here are the rules: if you yell for help, try to give the man some kind of coded message, or otherwise tip him off, I am going to pull out my pistol and shoot you in the head. Same goes for panicking, breaking down into tears. Remember how you like to do that? If it happens this time, I am going to pull my pistol out, and I am going to shoot you in the head.

It's a shame to see a great series fall apart
4 August 2013 | by (asyouwere) – See all my reviews

Robbing a train, seriously? I loved seasons 1 through 3, felt considerably less enthusiastic about 4, and find season 5 almost unwatchable. This episode has the feeling of pushing too hard, from the writing to the acting. The characters are being transformed from those with whom we can relate to some sort of invincible action heros. It's genuinely stupid.

Sorry, I can suspend disbelief for some of what the characters have done over the series but this is absurd and unbelievable. If you seriously consider the technical know-how required to pull off the train stunt, this episode shows itself as absolutely weak.

Breaking Bad should have stopped at the end of season 4, if not sooner. The show has become grandiose and has over-reached. I absolutely LOVED seasons 1 - 3 for their novelty, ingenuity, writing and acting. I agree that it was the best show in the last 20 years but only in relation to the first three or four seasons.
