Walter White Wednesday 24
There are several chilling, chilling moments in "Hazard Pay," and one of them is in the soundtrack. As Walt & Co. are discussing the cook plans, we hear the sound of children playing near the house. Later, we see stray meth fumes being vented into the backyard of the house which contains a swing set and a kiddie pool. People are becoming collateral to Walt, and collateral damage, well . . . sometimes things happen.
here. It's well worth checking out - Skyler is a character who drives many fans crazy and, while I have never understood the Sky-hate, she's got an interesting perspective on it.)
We also know that Walt doesn't do well either handling the business end of things or trusting anyone else to handle that end of things. He doesn't see the need for "hazard pay" for Gus' old network just as he didn't understand the concept of "breakage" back in Season 2. That stack of cash is his, all his, and I suspect his failure to understand certain realities is going to cause him to do something deeply stupid. Like cut Todd out of his share of the pie, at which point Todd might just forget to disable a cleverly-hidden "nanny cam" in some house being treated by Vamanos Pest.
By the way, if you haven't been following my co-author Ensley Guffey's take on Season 5A, bookmark his blog as well. He's added in "Meth Mondays" for his thoughts, comments, and rampant speculations, and we generally pick up on some different things, so it's a good idea to check up on both of us every week! And of course, you can follow us both on Facebook and Twitter as well! Love to hear from you as Wanna Cook? continues.
