Can we cool it a bit with deleting characters? It doesn't really matter if you think a character is important; some other trope think he/she is, and that IMO is enough justification to keep those characters around.

Yo, is there a way we can add apostrophes to Walts Family and Heisenbergs Empire page? Nitpicky, but still.

By a Custom Title, assuming I understand the question correctly.

Sincerity Mode: It's too complicated for me. Would you please do that? Thanks.

This page needs to be split into subpages IMMEDIATELY. It's way past the breaking limit; it's a miracle the formatting hasn't snapped already. I would, but I know nothing about the series.

And I'd split it myself but the Walter White folder is nearly twice the size of any other folder and I could only split out four more folders, getting the size of the main page down to just under 200K, before hitting the Other Civilians and Other Criminals folders - and one of those is Jesse Pinkman at around 61K, and as my normal inclination is not to give single characters their own pages I'd want to lump it with something else and I don't know if that would be Heisenberg's empire or something else, and the third-largest folder is Los Pollos Hermanos, which I don't know how important they actually are throughout the series. But here are the folder sizes for the non-Jesse folders:

  • Walter White 132311
  • Walt's Family 77341
  • Heisenberg's Empire 60560
  • DEA and Police 11616
  • Juarez Cartel 19875
  • Salamanca Family 33306
  • Los Pollos Hermanos 70608
  • Madrigal Electromotive 16243
  • Aryan Brotherhood 31411
  • Other Criminals 34844
  • Other Civilians 49304

We do have a couple pages that give one character their own subpage, but they're normally video games like Fallout: New Vegas where it's a faceless RPG protagonist.

Still, it's precedent. I can split the page myself, if splitting them by the folders sounds good to everyone else.

Well, what about that Jesse guy? Where does he go? Again: I know nothing about this show at all. I don't even know why he has his own folder as it is.

Well, done. Pages still need major spoiler, formatting, and ZCE cleanup, and put into folders, but that's not really my department right now.

I suggest we move Todd to Ayran Brotherhood instead of Heisenberg's Empire. He belongs there for a longer time, 8 compared to 5 episodes.

As how evil Walt becomes throughout the series as he is genius, shouldn't he be Mad Scientist?

We know as of Season 3 that Skinny Pete's first name is Peter, but no last name for him has been given. Should this affect whether or not one could say that he's Only Known by Their Nickname?

I've been looking everywhere for tropes or just general information about Walt Jr.'s friend Lewis, who drives him to school. I'm not that far in the show so maybe he disappears eventually, but does he not merit a character bio?

Should we replace the character portraits with the new ones from season 5? They look quite nice.

The old pictures look fine already.

I trimmed the Out of Focus entry for Walt Jr. It was originally

Since his role so far in season 4 has consisted of two small scenes, one of which rivetingly highlights him obtaining some breakfast cereal, its becoming fairly clear that the writers can't quite figure out how to keep him involved in the show. Given the sneakiness of the show, however, there's no telling what they've got planned.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.
If you can't read this one, hit reload for the page.
The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
