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>

The Great Train Robbery!
14 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the fifth episode of the fifth episode of Breaking Bad. This was a n excellent episode highlighted by another criminal move the boys decided to make, a train robbery. Those scenes were nothing short of intense and it shows the length they are willing to go to in order to keep their drug enterprise running. And be forewarned, the ending is a complete shocker!

In this episode, "Dead Freight," Walt, Jesse, and Mike decide to rob a train that is carrying an important supply for their meth. Meanwhile, Walt Jr is getting angry that he is temporarily placed in the custody of Hank's and Marie's.

Overall, this is a fantastic episode and one that is often entertaining and jaw-dropping. The beginning and the end, in my opinion, are some of the best scenes of the series. Another winner for Breaking Bad! I rate this episode 10/10.
