I thought he was gonna end up electrocuting himself doing that...although I suppose him dying by electricity would've been just a smidge on the nose. I was seriously uncomfortable watching that scene though.
Same here; it starts off very much in satisfying "horsefeathers CHUCK"-mode, right down to the music, but then it just keeps building and building to something that I did not expect to have such a reaction to (and, again, the music playing such a huge part, as it slowly morphs into something weird and ominous; felt a bit like something Jonny Greenwood would come up with for a PTA film). Like, I felt stressed and antsy watching it happen; just someone having a complete and total breakdown and continually crossing lines that you have trouble seeing them coming back from. It did very much, like CSC mentioned, feel like how The Conversation ended, except even more intense since it was completely in Chuck's mind. Sure, in TC, Harry Caul is giving in to his paranoia and frustration, but at that point we've seen he has some legit reasons to feel that way; with this, this is someone just toppling off of a cliff because of something that's just in his head.
