I've recently finished Breaking Bad, and although I really loved some characters such as Walt and Jesse, I feel weird about Todd. Even if many characters have multiple personalities, they tend to stick with their ideals without strong spikes while Todd goes from overconfident to clumsy and from highly responsive to disoriented. Here some examples:
- He kills Drew without a blink in [s5e5], but then he seems to be insecure and even shaking before and during the shootout between Hank&Gomez and White Supremacy Gang [s5e13];
- He tortures ruthlessly Jesse and then he treat him like a beast, chaining him while he works and keeping him handcuffed also when sleeping, but he seems to show humanity both with Walt [s5e13] and Jesse speaking like he never tortured and allowing him to watch the sky for the night;
- When White Supremacy Gang gets wiped by Walt's ambush, he gets up unharmed, shows a terrible lack of empathy saying just an "Uncle Jack?" and then looks outside, like he didn't understood anything about what has just happened. I find his reaction weird because previously he always reacted and understood the situation pretty quickly and also gave the idea to care much about uncle Jack and his crew.
That said, I don't know how to feel about him. He shows two sides: the ruthless assassin and the naive boy, but those sides doesn't seem to be very delineated.
Was he meant to be that type of character? Have I misunderstood something? I feel I missed something about him, I find him a fish out of water compared to all other characters.
