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

The railway pass where they hide the empty methylamine barrels for the heist appeared also on the 2008 movie Appaloosa, when the train is stopped and the main characters aim at Renee Zellweger captors. See more »

Goofs

The shot of the excavator lowering the tanks in the ground is at a different location. In that shot, there's a good amount of grass behind the pile of dirt. In the next shot when the water truck is backing up to the buried tanks (and in other wide shots of the buried tanks) no grass is nearby. See more »

It's a good ol' fashioned train heist
22 October 2013 | by See all my reviews

This episode is one of the few stand alone episodes of the series.

That being said...it is a FANTASTIC episode. Don't look more into it than you need to. It's a good ol' fashioned western style train heist. It's entertaining and ends with one of the most tragic Breaking Bad moments. Enjoy it for what it is, a tense well-written Breaking Bad episode with a good ol' fashioned western style train heist. A very entertaining episode that exposes the audience for the first time to the true nature of the sociopath known as Todd. I can understand where the hate comes from given that it (like the first episode of the season) doesn't contribute to the main plot line in general...but it's still a tense/well written episode. It reminds you of why you should never get too attached to ANY character. No character in this series is pious or righteous. They all share some blame. I give it a 9/10. Not the best episode in the series...but still a very enjoyable one.
