Watching Too Much Television 18/8/12: “You guys thought of everything.”
“Dead Freight” (S05/E05)
In keeping with the chemistry motif running through the series, what drives the plot in Breaking Bad is most often simple action and reaction. From the first seconds of the pilot episode, Walt has been scrambling to get himself out of one deadly situation, only to find himself catapulted into another. So it goes for Jesse, Saul, Mike, and anyone else caught up in his wake: any move made to extricate themselves lands them in an even bigger hole.
