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

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 »

The episode that has solidified Breaking Bad's status as the greatest show of all time
16 September 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Every scene was scripted perfectly and shot beautifully, even surpassing the standards Vince Gilligan's work has laid out in the past 5 series. I firmly believe this is Bryan Cranston's greatest piece of acting he has put on show for us...and that is saying a lot considering he has demonstrated some of the most engaging performances an actor has depicted during the show.

The emotion carried throughout this episode is on a completely new level and literally there is shock after shock...Perfection

I just have that feeling, quite a sad feeling actually... what you will witness and go through this episode..experience...has never been matched and will never be matched on another TV show. The Show is coming to an end...all I am going to do is savour it, and possibly cry
