Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Mike Batayeh ...


Hank's team puts pressure on Mike's crew, and at least one is ready to flip. Walter meets with Lydia, demanding the names of Mike's crew; she's afraid that once she lists them, Walter will dispatch her. She offers him a deal. Walter talks to Todd's uncle, Hank has a terrible day at work, and the cooking continues. Marie pushes Skyler to let the children return home, she takes Walt on a short car trip, and Hank may have a touch of constipation. Written by <>

Did You Know?


When Walt first approaches Jack and his men to kill Mike's men within a span of 2 minutes, Jack jokes along the lines that "killing bin Laden was easier than this." The show's timeline spans exactly 2 years, beginning in 2008. Osama bin Laden was killed on May 1, 2011. Vince Gilligan later admitted that this was a mistake. See more »


Todd unlocks the gate at the pest control yard. The Sun is on his right and in front of him. It shines directly onto the shuttered door of the building. Trees on the right cast long shadows across the yard. A little later Jessie arrives and talks to Walt for a few minutes then leaves. Three (TV) minutes have passed since Todd's arrival. However, it seems that the Sun has moved through 180 degrees (12 hours) because the shadows of the trees have gone only to be replaced by the shadow of the building. See more »


Gang Guy: It can be done. But not the way you want it.
Walter White: It can be done exactly how I want it. The only question is: Are you the man to do it? Figure it out. That's what I'm paying you for.

Nothing does cliffhangers like Breaking Bad
4 September 2012 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Every season of Breaking Bad does it: that moment when you realise your jaw has dropped and you are completely aghast at two separate things - the shocking turn of events and the fearless brilliance of the shows creators. The 'mid-season finale' does not disappoint.

I can scarcely thing of a less predictable show than BB. No matter if you guess one of the things that might happen - you'll never guess how, and anyone who hasn't seen this episode should run mile from anyone who tries to spoil it for them. Again, Vince Gilligan makes amazing use of the shows back catalogue of episodes to make this episode fit so beautifully, almost poetically, as a key point in the story of so many characters. It ends the mini-season leaving you itching to jump forward in time so you can find out what happens next, and is easily the best episode in what has been another incredible season.

Discussions will rage on geek sites for the next 8 months and in bars all over the US and hopefully the world about what should happen, what will happen, who the hero of the show is or will be, and who will survive. The saddest thing is that this masterpiece of television will end next year, leaving a Sopranos-sized whole in the lives of all those who have watched it.
