It's the morning after the night before and Walt has a major hangover. Skyler is now convinced that Walt is in danger but he makes sure she understands exactly how important he is to the criminal organization. He's a little too blunt as Skyler's reaction is to take the baby and disappear for a few days. One of Gus' trucks has been hijacked so Mike and Jesse are tasked to get the blue meth back. Once again, Jesse proves to be unexpectedly useful. In the lab, Walt is fed up with Jesse going off on errands with Mike and so comes up with his own solution to cleaning up. He also learns that his actions may have unintended consequences. Written by

In the opening scene the robbers use the truck's exhaust gases to suffocate the guards inside the cargo bay. This wouldn't work for several reasons.
First, the vast majority of trucks in the US run on diesel, and diesel soot is not poisonous. It even contains a high amount of breathable air. Therefore it would neither poison nor suffocate the guards. If they wanted to achieve this, they should've piped their SUV's exhaust into the truck, as a normal petrol car's exhaust contains a lot of carbon monoxide. Or simply bring a large can of nitrogen and pump that into the cargo bay which would kill the guards instantly, especially if they are lying prone on the floor.
The other reason why it wouldn't work is that the cargo bay is hermetically sealed (being a refrigerator truck) and the exhaust can not push air out of the enclosed space. It would increase pressure for a while, then probably just stall.
In any case, the guards would probably have a bad time, even get a bad headache, but won't die. See more
