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>

Trivia

During the scene where Walt bugs Hank's office, the same model of lamp that was bugged by the FBI in The Sopranos (1999) is visible on Hank's desk. See more »

Goofs

They pump water into the train's tank at the same time as they pump methylamine out of it. Water's heavier so would fall to the bottom, to be pumped out again. Their methylamine is diluted with water. See more »

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.

Wow!!!
12 August 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I felt compelled to write a short and sweet comment on what i just witnessed. This episode was simply amazing, so amazing... This show keeps getting better and better each passing week!!! This episode was was easily a 12 out of 10. I have never been so nervous, nail biting, and sweaty during an episode. Im gonna miss this series, I started watching this year, and the only reason i started watching this series is because of the trusted reviews i read on this website, and I'm so glad i did. As for this episode I just watched I don't feel like writing a spoiler, on what just happened. I just wanted to say simply AMAZING!!
