Walt survives the gun battle in the desert but others do not. Jesse survives but Walt wants him dead and expects Todd's uncle Jack to go through with their deal. Something far worse is in store for Jesse and Walt takes the opportunity to tell him about Jane's death. Meanwhile Hank's wife Marie visits her sister Skyler at the car-wash to tell her Walt has been arrested. At Marie's insistence, Skyler tells Walt Jr. about his father's secret. By the time Skyler and Walt Jr. get home Walt is already there and wants them to pack and leave with him. He soon realizes it's all over and leaves, but takes baby Holly with him. With the police now involved, Walt makes one last phone call to Skyler. Written by

Vince Gilligan requested, and received, permission to not show the traditional opening cast and crew credits until over 1/3 of the episode was shown, because he felt the titles would take away from the shock and horror of the events that were shown (both the flashback to the first time Walter White and Jesse Pinkman cooked meth in the desert, and in the moments after the shootout between Hank, Gomez and Uncle Jack's gang).

When we first see Todd remove the tarp from the top of Jessie's cell the room is filled with direct sunlight. Once Jessie and Todd climb up the ladder and out of the cell it is completely in the shade even though just a few minutes have passed. See more
I've still got things left to do.
When the opening credits begin after the first commercial break, the names of the first three actors appear in the normal sequence with normal timing. At the moment when the name Dean Norris
would normally appear, the camera shows Walt looking at his own reflection in the rear view mirror. The name does not appear, and Walt turns the mirror to the side. The camera focuses in on the mirror's new reflection, an empty spot in the New Mexican desert. We then see Walt pause for several moments. Finally, as Walt begins to move on, the name Dean Norris
appears on the screen. See more
