Breaking Bad hasn't got there yet.
I loved the train heist until the kid got capped, ouch. But there's the rub. Todd seemed like a likeable character until then, and now he's the horror; this show tears at you, and surprises you, because everything is plausible, if not actual. You feel like it could be real even though you know it isn't, or is it?I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things. -אלוהים אדירים

I'm really hoping Todd doesn't get taken out next episode. Up until the last couple seconds he was a helpful puppy-dog. Remember when he sheepishly told Walt that there was a baby monitor in the house? I love how he smiled and waved at the kid right before he shot him in the head. I'm not saying it's cool he shot the kid, but wow - what a psycho. Tuco was an out of control wildman, Gus was pretty cold and calculated, but Todd now seems to be Anton Chigurh with a pleasant personality.
I also like how Jesse is increasingly providing the brains this season.

OK - so now Todd's back to "just want to help" mode. I found it odd that he referred to the methylamine hiest as a "mission".
I think with the direction BB is going it's going to turn into nobody trusting anybody else. Not that they do now, but I think it's going to go to a whole new level. I also now think Jesse's going to end up dead.

I'll have to check the DVR tonight but I believe that Saul called Gomez "Fonzie" in the most recent episode. Coincidence? I think not.Damn, we're in a tight spot!

Todd is a confirmed psycho. He very much appeared to be looking at the tarantula like a trophy.
Where did they get all the hydrofluoric this time? Surely concentrated HF is controlled substance? The "Shit, we have a body to deal with, I'll grab the acid and a barrel" schtick is getting a bit tired.
I have a hard time believing that cord would have kept arcing that long with popping a breaker, but that was a pretty hardcore escape nonetheless.
Walter's meglomania has reached dizzying heights.
You knew Mike's dead drop was a fake, and it was still awesome.
So Walt's plan is to keep cooking, use Todd's prison uncle's connections to distribute the meth, and pay off Mike and Jesse with the profits? Seems like the most obvious explanation but I have certainly been wrong before.
The cliffhanger at the mid-season break is going to be massive.

All those years doing this stuff and Mike didn't think to tie up BOTH of Walt's hands with something more than a ziptie???? Come on.Technical Scandinavian Style since 1986 - www.crossskiwear.com

New theory... Todd ends up killing Walt.

If Walt goes in with the guys who want the methylamine won't that kinda shoot his dream of total control in the ass?

Don't get me wrong. I am a huge fan of the show, maybe even believing it to be in the best tv I have ever watched. However, "I'm in the EMPIRE business."?
I can get over the fact that their building seems to have no panel box, among hundreds (albeit fewer than most shows) of impossibilities made convenient to the story line at the sake of the show believing I'm stupid and easily fooled, but WTF? It's not jumping the shark by any means, but that moment was some stumbling cheezey bad writing. Maybe "Legacy business" would have been better. We didn't need Walter's hubris shoved that far down our throats. I think everyone clearly has the picture of Walt's dizzying heights of power lust.

If BB were 100% realistic it would still be an interesting show, but nowhere near what it is now. All in all, they keep it pretty real. I can't complain. Plus - it's always fun to pick out the mistakes and unbelieveable stuff.
Can anybody name a single action movie in the past two decades that was 100% believeable?

That dinner scene was awesome.People should learn endurance; they should learn to endure the discomforts of heat and cold, hunger and thirst; they should learn to be patient when receiving abuse and scorn; for it is the practice of endurance that quenches the fire of worldly passions which is burning up their bodies.

the look on Walter's face when he shot Mike was kind of shocking. He's spent so much time being a hardass drug makin' bad guy that to see him actually look vulnerable for the first time in many many episodes caught me off guard.
So do we think the DEA seized Mike's safe deposit box he was keeping for his granddaughter? I'm assuming they did.
Todd is an interesting enigma wrapped in a puzzle wrapped in a vest. He seems kind of dumb, a bit of a psycho obviously... but he's connected. Almost like Tommy in Goodfellas.thats new hampshire as fuck
We ain't eager to be legal, so please leave me with the keys to your Jeep Eagle.

Todd does appear kinda dumb, but I think that's really just a manifestation of his complete and total psychosis. I truely believe he is going to end up being the superfreak of all superfreaks. Tuco was a methhead maddog, Gus was a businessman seeking revenge, Mike was a pro looking to provide for his granddaughter. Todd doesn't have any motive for anything - he doesn't need one. He's psychotic.

Wow, what an episode.....that episode alone prob secures another emmy for BC - looks like some future locking of horns for Jessie and Todd, who Walt will groom like a lapdog. Is this this season the end of the series?Don't posthole the skintrack of life...

I bet they use Todd's connections in prison to try and wipe out the 9 loose ends from Mike's gang. Was kinda shocked Mike went out like that, sucked I wanted him to get away.

I really hope they off Skylar. She's the only one left who's got it out for Walt and could tip off the DEA, I bet she dies in the mid season finale.
Kinda had a feeling Mike was going to die, once the DEA nabbed him he was going to talk or get killed off. It wouldn't be very dramatic if he got out and kept his mouth shut.

I disagree on Todd. Todd is just a kid who wants to fit in. The spider in the jar was just like the kid at the beginning of that show. Mission - want to belong to the unit like in the army. Walt is like a father figure. Todd will end up doing anything at Walts command. Totally amoral. Just like walt has become.Mrs. Dougw- "I can see how one of your relatives could have been killed by an angry mob."

Agreed on Bryan Cranston being amazing with his reaction after shooting Mike. Few actors could have pulled off the conflicted mix of emotions like that.

Did anybody else notice the weird camera angle when Gomez walked in on Hank and Walt in Hank's office? Almost like it was from the viewpoint of a surveillance camera. I would think a smart fella, if he were involved in any sort of nefarious activity in or within 50 yards of any building, would automatically assume that he was on camera.
Then again it may very well have been creative cameraplay on the part of the director. Like Anton Chigurh waiting behind the door at the crimescene when he wasn't actually waiting behind the door. It's gonna suck when this all ends....
