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.

This one really nailed it. Dead Freight is arguably the most suspenseful episode in the series. Walt's amazing intelligence is on full display as he orchestrates one of the biggest heists of all time. Everything appears to be going well until a random factor that no amount of planning can predict shows up that radically alters some of their lives going forward.

Most BB episodes have a couple "filler" scenes to get them to the one hour mark. The time flies by on this one and will have you on the edge of your seat until the end. There were a few episodes that came close to this but nothing that made me re watch them several times like this one.
