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: Look at me, not at them. Lydia, look at me. If you make Schrader suspicious in any way, any way at all, tell me what's gonna happen next.
Lydia Rodarte-Quayle: You'll pull out your gun and shoot me.
Mike Ehrmantraut: And where will I shoot you?
Lydia Rodarte-Quayle: In the head.
Mike Ehrmantraut: The head. That's right. And it's a pistol, not a gun. I'm expecting precision here.

Amazing
29 November 2012 | by (Cairo) – See all my reviews

This episode is one of the best 1-hours EVER on TV. I didn't think the series could exceed its many previous high points, but this episode is just amazing. My wife and I were sat dumbstruck all the way through. The tension, the pay-off, then that ending, simply amazing.

The plot, the acting, the visuals, the music, all 10/10. I'm just amazed how everything single bit is of the highest calibre. Say what you want, but I doubt those involved in this show will reach these heights again. Enjoy it while it lasts.

When this show finally ends, I'm going to watch the whole thing again right from the start, I've never done that before with a TV drama.
