Dies in: "Dead Freight" (Season 5, Episode 5)
A pre-teen kid rides through the desert on his dirt bike. He finds a tarantula. Rides off. Even by Breaking Bad standards, this is one obscure, what-the-fuck-does-this-have-to-do-with-anything cold open. Then we forget all about him, because Walter Heisenberg White, Jesse, Mike and Todd, Walter’s own personal Stan, are executing the most nail-biting train heist ever.
Then they pull it off, fist pumps abound, and...look over to see dirt-bike kid has been watching the entire time. And before anyone can react, Todd guns him down. This was the crucial last step in the corrosion of Walter White’s soul but still...damn. We’re not sure which part of the aftermath is tougher to watch: Walt’s, once the sympathetic antihero, indifference or bleeding heart Jesse’s inability to stomach it.
