In the news cast when it is first revealed that Drew Sharp was the boy shot by Todd she says he has been missing since Thursday morning. However Lydia clearly states in the previous episode (S5,5; Deadfreight) that the train carrying the Methylamine comes every Wednesday. Which would be when the train was robbed and when Drew was ultimately killed. However, for any number of reasons, Drew's parents might only have realized he was missing the next day. See more »


Jesse Pinkman: I, uh, I eat a lot of frozen stuff. It's usually pretty bad. I mean, the pictures are always so awesome, you know? It's like, "Hell yeah, I'm stoked for this lasagna!" And then you nuke it, and the cheese gets all scabby on top, and it's like... it's like you're eating a scab... I mean, seriously, what's that about? It's like, yo, what ever happened to truth in advertising?

A "Calmer" Episode!
18 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the sixth episode of the fifth season of Breaking Bad. Things return to a calmer state of mind, but only in the sense of the action from the previous episode. That being said, we get a look at the business side of things and it's quite interesting to listen to. The acting remains strong, especially from Cranston and Anna Gunn as Skylar delves even deeper into her misery.

In this episode, "Buyout," Walt, Jesse, and Mike must deal with the aftermath of Todd's actions. After the dust is settled, Walt wants to cook again but Mike and Jesse are not feeling the same way. Skylar finally admits to Marie her affair with Ted, which makes for an interesting dinner topic when Walt invites Jesse over for dinner. Meanwhile, the DEA are keeping constant surveillance on Mike.

Overall, this is a solid episode and the action is less sparse, but the tension remains palpable. I liked the discussions involving the business side of things and it's actually quite educational. But of course the calm will probably not be around long.

My Grade: A-
