Two stinkers in a row! The B plot in this episode, where they all go off and find the Observer Child, is fairly compelling. I don't think we ever get an explanation for why he's mute and in a state of arrested development.

The A plot is stupid and pointless. Walter turning into his old self is such a non-issue. The whole idea that one could remove a part of someone's brain and then put it back decades later is beyond ridiculous.

Carla Warren doesn't belong in season five, period. Blair Brown is a lovely woman but she is not convincing playing her younger self. They should have come up with another idea. Additionally, I am certain that the writer for this episode has never dropped acid in their life.

Summary: Walter takes a tab or two of Black Blotter and hallucinates a whole lot of nonsense because the writer can't think of anything better. Oh yeah. They find the Observer child, who is another missing piece of Walter's plan to save humanity.

Most Memorable Quote:
WALTER: There's only room for one God in this lab, and it's not yours.
