Storyline

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 garykmcd

Trivia

There are many visual callbacks to previous episodes in this one: Walt's shocked, agonized reaction to Hank being shot is identical to Gus's shocked, agonized reaction to the shooting of Max in episode 4.08, "Hermanos"; Walt sees the pair of pants that he lost in the desert in the Pilot; Skyler's accusation that Walt killed Hank is nearly identical to her telling him, "I fucked Ted" in episode 3.03, "I.F.T."; Jesse's beaten, pulpy face is similar to Gus Fring's face at the end of "Face Off"; After his call to Skyler, Walt breaks his phone in half exactly like Gus Fring did in episode 3.08, "I See You."

Crazy Credits

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 »

I Guarantee You Will Cry
16 September 2013 | by (Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

47. 47 minutes exactly was the length of this entire episode, and without a doubt if you're a hardcore fan of this show - you will cry. You will cry in every single minute of this episode. I guarantee it - you will cry.

The acting was brilliant and delivered so well. The setting is always perfect and the conflict is just unpredictable. Walt IS legendary in this brilliant episode. We are now seeing that Walter White is no doubt, "The King".

The end is during nearer everybody, and the episodes are getting better and better. If I could, I would give this episode a 11/10 - perfect beyond reason.

All hail the King!
