ANDREA IS AN IDIOT

I don't know if the writer's wanted her to be an idiot, or if they thought her action was rational. In Granite State, she unlocks her hinges and steps onto her front deck after hearing that Jesse is sitting in the shadows of a very dark car.

"Jesse? In that car way over there? Where? I don't see him?"

How about asking some intelligent questions like

"Why is he sitting in a car. Why did he send you hear and not come up himself. Could he at least roll down the window and wave? The car's lights aren't even on."

Or even the "Okay, so what exactly do you want? What brings you here? Why didn't yall come over here at a less of an ungodly hour?"

My subconscious asks these questions automatically. Of her background, and Tomas dying on her you'd think she'd be even more weary than I am. She lives in a much more dangerous neighborhood than I and a much more devastative history. If i were writing the show Andrea would still be alive. That is the only problem I had with the episode.

However, this is also all Jesse's fault. If Jesse said "Kill Andrea or Brock and I don't cook." instead of "Go ahead and kill me, I'm never cooking again." Andrea would still be alive. Jesse keeps screwing everything up. Remember it was his grand plan in the first place that got Hank and Gomie killed and got himself captured. He could've been in Alaska by now. But then again, if Jesse didn't screw up there would be an absence of 5 episodes of Br Ba.

I dont disagree with u exactly, and I, too, think that 1. Andrea is supposed to be smarter than this and more suspicious of Todd based on her history, 2. Jesse could have negotiated this better just like Walt with Jack for Hank's life. 

I like Jesse and I think he shouldnt had snitched. He should have taken Andrea and Brock and moved to Alaska (that was my prediction in the beginning of the season). However, Walt had already ordered the hit on him without even knowing that Jesse talked to the DEA. The worse that could have came out of that is Walt getting arrested which would have been better than any of the drama that followed. I know he wanted the money for his family but as evidenced by him giving it to Jack in order to spare Hank, the money is not as important to Walt as his family is. It was never about the money for Walt, it was the "empire" thing. 

Ok, so I think the biggest "hubris" that Walt committed was giving Jesse to Jack and his gang. He betrayed Jesse three times: 1. when he called for the hit, 2. when he called Jack in the desert, 3. when he gave Jesse up when he was hiding under the car. Oh, and a 4th one, going over Andrea's house and endangering her and her son for a second time. If Walt hadn't been to her house, Jack wouldnt have known about her. I think he crossed the line and he is more responsible (or equally so) than Jesse.

Just pointing out that Andrea was living in a nice neighborhood at this point, Jesse gave her money to buy a new house in Season 4. But yeah, that scene with her looked pretty strange, she didn't notice anything suspicious about that? C'mon...

Was wondering how long it would take for people to blame Walt for it.
