Breaking Bad S05E06 "Buyout" OAD 08/19/12

Wait a second... Colonel Young is selling Meth now? I always knew that guy had issues.

Great episode. Not as intense as the last, but the tension is building. This episode DID have the best scene of the season though...that dinner scene! Wow! Scabby Lasagna!

Allow me to point out that the power cord would have worked to cut the strap, but not like that. He needed to make one strand of the wire into a hot knife. You don't get an arc flame from 110volts. In any case, he'd just trip a circuit breaker.

Walt and Jesse are old hands at dissolving stuff in barrels of acid now.

My thought was that he likely could have pried open the clip on the zip tie using his eyeglass frames (removing the plastic over-the-ear cover from the wire frame should reveal a paper-clip style edge). Certainly that would've been a good first try before resorting to a method that would burn his wrist.

Some great lines. "Scabby lasagna" and "Hard on as big as Uncle Miltie" come to mind.

What is Walt's plan? How is he going to have enough methylene to both supply the buyer and continue cooking?

It would have been even easier for him to use the buckle on his watch strap to lift the ratchet of the zip tie. It also would have added another dimension to Jesse's gift of the watch.

Would be fitting if somehow his own ricin was used against him. There has to be some reason they made such a big to do over the ricin being hidden.

He didn't say that he was going to sell the methylmine. Jesse said that the plan allowed Walt to keep cooking and Mike and Jesse would get their $5 million each. I deleted the episode so I can't check, but Jesse may not even have said that he (Jesse) would get his $5M. All we know is that Walt gets to keep cooking and Mike gets paid. "Everybody wins."

I wonder if "everybody" includes the competing distributor, or if they'll be making an enemy of him.

I loved the dinner scene! I also was thinking that the new watch would come into play somehow but did laugh when the coffee maker rolled across the room.

I thought he was going to break the crystal of the watch to cut the zip-tie. He or Jesse made a point about what the crystal was made out of when he gave him the watch. The watch was also very prominent on his wrist, it would have added another dimension to the watch gift. Perhaps we'll see the watch play into something in the future.

Between the super-magnet-truck and the great-train-heist, I'm will to overlook the electric spark gag. But I'm more surprised that Walt didn't turn his wrist around to burn the back or side, and not the underside where all the veins and thin skin are.

I think he's going to offer to go cook for those guys, since they already have a lab and a distribution network set up. Mike and Jesse can get out, and Walt can make more money and has another empire to take over.

If the other crew is also using a methylamine cook method, wouldn't their meth also be blue, since that's what changed between the pseudo-cook and the methylamine cook? Or is Walt's method just so pure/perfect?

If Walt can strip wire with his teeth, why didn't he just chew through the restraint?

I think the cord is more rubber than plastic and the zip ties are a very plastic. I use zip ties alot around the house. It's as handy as duct tape.

He should have used the side that was attached to the radiator.

I don't think Walt wants to work for anyone else. He's made that clear, so I would be shocked if that was his big plan where everyone wins.

Also, if you think about it, Walt hasn't really taken over any empires yet. Him and Jesse have destroyed a few and have taken more bad guys off the street than the DEA.

That was not a regular zip tie, it was a plastic handcuff, made to be pick-proof. Before anybody objects, they come in both single and double cuffs. The difference is that you can carry no more than two of the double version, or a dozen single cuffs in the same size pouch on a uniform belt. The difference is that single cuffs run a greater chance of cutting off circulation when cinched down tight to genuinely restrain someone.

No way Walt is going to work for someone else. You don't move up in the Empire Business working for someone else.

And no, those other guys don't use methylamine. They were just buying it to get the blue stuff off the market.

They sure have made a point to show Skyler smoking a lot this season. And the ricin is hidden in a cigarette. Just pointing that out.

I got the impression the Arizona guys DO use methylamine. They were buying it for their own operation and paying a premium because it also got rid of the competition. Maybe I'm off base or missed something though.

That was my impression. They UPPED the inital price to get rid of the competition. I still wonder how "Everybody will win".

How many for episodes are left for this first part of the season? one or two?

The ricin capsule is not hidden in a cigarette. It is taped to the back of a wallplate in the Whites' house. The intention of hiding it in the cigarette in the first place wasn't to get someone to smoke it. It was just a good hiding place for Jesse to carry it around.

Actually, the intention was to get Gus to smoke it. Jesse was hoping to have an occasion where Gus would bum a smoke off him, and Jesse would give him the laced cigarette.

That's right! I had forgotten about that.

Jesse was supposed to put it in something that Gus was going to eat or drink. As wouldworker stated, the cigarette was just a hiding place/transportation vessel.
