5x05: Dead Freight

Observations: “Todd’s knee-jerk move to shoot the young kid was hotly debated by the writers. The original plan was for the crime to go off without a hitch — but that didn’t sit well with Mastras. “Our show has always been about consequences,” he says, “so I kept pitching the idea of an innocent dying. Walt’s gonna become Heisenberg — but at what cost? What will happen to them once an innocent is killed? Up until that point, that hadn’t happened yet. It made for a really intense ending.”
– Denis Martin in Breaking Bad’s George Mastras on the Train-Heist Sequence, the Year’s Most Suspenseful Scene
