Great episode with a tremendous finish. Luckily I had forgotten the opening scene by the end of the episode. Instead I though for a long time they would somehow kill off this Ted during the heist, because he looked so simple-hearted. After all, with all the build up it was likely, someone goes under the train.
I feel sorry for the kid. Especially as I felt the kill was not "necessary". The heist would have never become public knowledge (due to no one looking for the stolen quantum) and the kid didn't know what they actually did, so they could've just ignored the kid and turn away like normal workers.
But, hey, it's a series! If you have a moral problem with that, you should have stopped watching in episode 1x01 when Walt starts cooking poison. BTW, Game of Thrones does the same to kids. This is just edgy television.

You might call me sick, but i liked it because it would have been cheesy and unoiginal to have the 'happy ending' where no one notices anything and everything ends with no problems.
And it shows: Jesse has actually some brains, as long as people ignore him, but yell at each others in alpha male-style.
The finish completely fits the direction Walt has taken. He is much more ruthless, riskfriendly and pragmatic as in the past. Stuff like that is bound to happen, when you are getting fast-paced and ambitious.
