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

Did You Know?


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."

Shock after shock to the fullest excess
15 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you thought the previous episode was a shock you have seen nothing yet. This episode has at least 3 shockers each more shocking than the next. This episode is beyond un believable.

This show as I stated before has reached new heights and isn't coming back down but only going higher I couldn't have been more right. It has launched so high that the meth users on the show aren't as high.

This episode is legendary and is going to be very high when it comes to ratings. Watch this episode only after watching the episodes previous. And you will be just as shocked as me and everyone else who has watched this episode. Literally so shocking it could put you into tears.
