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

There was another director attached to helm this episode, but when he/she couldn't do it, Vince Gilligan quickly got in touch with Rian Johnson, who had expressed the desire of doing another episode before the show was over. See more »


When the shooting first starts, Walt dives down in the back seat towards the floor and his glasses fall off. After the shooting stops and Jack begins talking to Hank, Walt appears in the back window of the SUV with his glasses on. With his hands cuffed behind his back, there is no way he could have retrieved and put on his glasses back on. See more »

not what you might expect...
14 September 2013 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

I will keep this review free of spoilers and I will especially not discuss the beginning of this episode so feel free to read if you haven't watched it.All I can say is I read each and every theory posted on IMDb on how this episode will begin but trust me,most of them turned out to be not true. We were left on a cliffhanger,the most intense cliffhanger in the entire series,the lives of the main characters were on the line.I see fans all over the IMDb board raving about their favorite character and posting about who they want to see die,cussing Jesse for ratting on Walt and much more,that's because breaking bad is so well written it feels almost real.The writers of this show are absolute geniuses.Frankly speaking, it surprises me how they are able to achieve these new heights. Every time a new episode arrives, I am just waiting for the writers to make a mistake. But, every time they are able to wrong me with amazing confidence.

I don't need to tell you guys 'don't miss it' or 'best episode of the season' because we all know every episode is great and there is no way any of you will miss it.Instead,I have a message for anyone who hasn't watched breaking bad ever and is reading this.Like they did with me, people will tell you how great Breaking Bad is; you should listen to them, because they are right. Breaking Bad continues this journey with confidence, compelling story-telling and characters that are written with convincing development and actions. It is great stuff.
