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

This episode is considered by many television critics and audiences to be the greatest episode of TV ever produced. It received universal critical acclaim, is the highest rated TV episode on IMDb and won three Emmys for Best Writing, Best Actor, and Best Supporting Actress. See more »

Goofs

Skyler refers Holly as an 18 month old baby to APD as Walt takes her away. She was born in Season 2 probably 6-7 months after Walt's cancer was detected (50th Birthday). He celebrates his 51st Birthday in Season 5 Episode 3 so it's mathematically not possible that Holly is 18th months old. See more »

Crazy Credits

When the opening credits begin after the first commercial break, the names of the first three actors appear in the normal sequence with normal timing. At the moment when the name Dean Norris would normally appear, the camera shows Walt looking at his own reflection in the rear view mirror. The name does not appear, and Walt turns the mirror to the side. The camera focuses in on the mirror's new reflection, an empty spot in the New Mexican desert. We then see Walt pause for several moments. Finally, as Walt begins to move on, the name Dean Norris appears on the screen. See more »
