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?

Trivia

Old Joe compares the feasibility of Walt's mobile super-magnet to that of "string theories and God particles", in this episode first broadcast July 15, 2012. On July 4th, just eleven days prior, the actual long-sought "God particle" (the Higgs boson) was detected for the first time by the Large Hadron Collider on the Franco-Swiss border. See more »

Goofs

Old Joe states before the magnet is put to test in the junkyard, "Remove anything metal." How do the officer's gun, belt, badge, et cetera. not get pulled by the magnet's force when he opens the door to the evidence room? See more »

Quotes

Old Joe: Why would anyone wanna put a metal ring through the end of their prick?
Jesse Pinkman: What are you looking at me for?

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.
