Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Hank Schrader (credit only)


Walt is hiding out with Saul's man waiting to get his new identity and leave Albuquerque. He's joined by none other than Saul himself who is also on the run from the authorities due to his connection with Heisenberg. Walt is angry, particularly at Todd's uncle for taking most of his money. He wants Saul to help him get it back but Saul's advice is to turn himself in before the police turn on his family. When Walt is finally relocated, he finds himself living in a cabin on a snowy piece of land in New Hampshire. Saul's man comes once a month with food and the like but Walt is basically a self-exiled prisoner unable to venture off his property for fear of being recognized. He seems ready to pack it in but comes full circle after seeing his former business partners on TV. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


During the interview with Gretchen and Elliot about their Nobel Prize, Charlie Rose mentions a column written by New York Times columnist Andrew Ross Sorkin. The column condemns the actions of the Schwartzes' generous charity for New Mexico drug abuse victims as an attempt to white wash the recent news that surfaced that Walter White may have been the co-founder of Grey Matter Technologies. The Schwartzes instead tell Charlie Rose that the only thing Walter White had to do with the co-founding of Grey Matter Technologies was coming up with the name. In real life, this column was actually written, and an excerpt appears on the New York Times' website. See more »


When Walt sits in the bar at the end he orders a neat Dimple Pinch. The bartender pours about a fifth of a glass. Two minutes later there is a shot of the glass which is now not only smaller than the last one, but also half full. The scene ends with a shot of the glass Walt ordered from the beginning combined with cops in the background. This continuity error was caused by the loss of a canister of film and parts of the scene having to be re-shot (see trivia). See more »


Ed: I will see you on, Let's see. Afternoon of the 15th.
Walter White: Stay a little longer?
Ed: Yeah, I got a long trip ahead of me.
Walter White: Two hours? I'll give you another $10,000. Please.

Why TV was worth invented
23 September 2013 | by (El Salvador) – See all my reviews

its hard to put it in words, since I am a TV lover freak. and I have watched the best over recent decades. complete series. The Sopranos, Dexter, Seinfeld, Nip/tuck.. and then this particular piece of art make its way. a TV gem nobody expected. I started watching the series when it was on its third season. and what called my attention first was Mr Cranston's Emmy award winnings. A former average actor, similar to Mr Gandolfini fairy tale (so sad we lost him). and when I saw the pilot, I just fall for it. an amazing acting on both main characters. totally Emmy deserved. though I have to say, I can predict an easy Emmy award for Dean Norris's Hank character for 2014 Emmy's. by far the best performance this current last season.

as for Granite State. the phone call scene father and son poem. my goodness.its so natural. it showed Walt's only intention all the series: his family well being. I would do the same for mine.
