You could say that “Breaking Bad” — where in high school chemistry teacher Walter White turns to a life of meth-cooking crime to offer for his family after a terminal cancer diagnosis — is a show about a bunch of evil geniuses trying to one-up every different. During his violent, legendary ascent to the top of the southwestern US meth trade, Walt runs into many different first-rate criminals while dodging his brother-in-law Hank Shrader’s DEA investigation.
The show’s characters cook up schemes higher than Walt cooks up meth. There are such a lot of ingenious maneuverings hatched by one person or every other all through the show that many of them — from Jesse and Saul forcing Jesse’s dad and mom to promote their home to him at a considerable discount by the use of his personal undisclosed crook interest in it as leverage to Skyler, Saul, and Kuby tricking Bogdan into selling her his car wash by faking a code violation problem to Skyler inventing a fake gambling tale to provide an explanation for Walt’s fortune — couldn’t even match in this listing.

First, Lydia. He runs into her and Todd at her favorite cafe and slips poisonous ricin into the Stevia packet he knew she’d use in her tea. Then he pretends to be desperate for cash and has Todd set up a assembly among him and Jack, claiming he desires to educate them a new, lower-fee manner to cook meth.

The first order of business: get as much money to his family as possible. This isn’t always easy, since stated family now hates his guts and the Feds are simply praying he’ll show up at Skyler’s with duffel bags of cash. So Walt has to get creative. In the series finale “Felina,” he breaks into the Schwartz home, has a terrified Gretchen and Elliott help him pile cash on their table, and then tells them to donate it to Walt Jr. and Holly in the form of an irrevocable trust and explain to anyone who questions it that they pitied Walt’s blameless children. If they didn’t, the ” first-rate hitmen west of the Mississippi” (in reality, Badger and Skinny Pete outside with laser pointers) would assassinate them.
