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

In an interview, director Rian Johnson revealed that baby Holly's saying "mama" in the scene where Walt changes her was unscripted. The scene was written to have Walt simply look at Holly and decide to give her back. However, the baby's mother was on set behind Bryan Cranston, and the baby started saying "mama" while they were filming. Cranston simply went along with it and the shot ended up in the episode.

Goofs

In the flashback scene before the title, Walt is speaking with Skyler over the phone after his first cook. She is still pregnant, but has the short hairstyle from later episodes rather than her long hair from the first couple seasons. See more »

Quotes

Hank Schrader: [to Walt, as Jack has a gun pointed at him] You're the smartest guy I ever met... but you're too stupid to see... He made up his mind ten minutes ago.

I feel sick
16 September 2013 | by (Melbourne) – See all my reviews

Like a crystal meth user, watching Breaking Bad gives me the same mix of both euphoria and a feeling of intense despair.

I watched this episode over 2 hours ago, and I still feel sick.

Heart rate: Up. Respiration: Up. Trembling: Intense Fear and anxiety: Immense. Desperately waiting and counting the hours until the next fix.

I am hooked. I am ruined. I am destroyed.

I am bad...

As I have journeyed through the series of Breaking Bad, I have nervously watched as Walt fought cancer, cooked his meth, evaded the establishment, built his wealth, lost his wealth, built it again, dispatched his foes and always prevailed. His loyalty to Jesse always seemed to prevail.

Like me, did you find yourself moving away from Walt, and heading towards Jesse, and perhaps even Hank? I think I even felt a pang for Skyler.

And now? I still feel sick
