Storyline

Flash ahead to Walter's 52nd birthday: he's at a Denny's, disheveled, hair and beard unkempt, using a false name and a New Hampshire driver's license, paying a guy for a car with weapons in the trunk. Back to the immediate aftermath of Gus's death: Skyler is dazed at Walt's murderous success, Walt and Jesse make peace, and Hank visits the burned-out lab. Walt remembers the surveillance cameras Gus used at the lab, so they turn to an angry Mike for help. Can they get rid of the digital evidence in police custody? Is hubris going to trip up Walt?

I Wondered Where Season Five Would Take Us
9 May 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

It hard to imagine the Jesse and Walter don't have bits of them all over that lab. Once they find out that Gus had cameras that fed his laptop, they know they have to destroy it. Unfortunately for them, the police have stowed said computer in their evidence vault. Walter, using good old Mike and Jesse, rig up a truck that will put an end to the computer (whether it does, I'm not sure). Meanwhile, Skyler is told by Saul that things did not go well during the session with Beneke. He has serious brain trauma and a broken neck (I assume). The key thing about all this is that there are going to be a lot of questions and Walter has changed his personality.
