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

Did You Know?


Vince Gilligan requested, and received, permission to not show the traditional opening cast and crew credits until over 1/3 of the episode was shown, because he felt the titles would take away from the shock and horror of the events that were shown (both the flashback to the first time Walter White and Jesse Pinkman cooked meth in the desert, and in the moments after the shootout between Hank, Gomez and Uncle Jack's gang).

When we first see Todd remove the tarp from the top of Jesse's cell, the room is filled with direct sunlight. Once Jesse and Todd climb up the ladder and out of the cell, it is completely in the shade even though just a few minutes have passed. See more »


Walter White: Pinkman. You still owe me.
Uncle Jack: If you can find him, we'll kill him.
Walter White: Found him.

the best episode in history of television
16 September 2013 | by kingjado_9See all my reviews

"oh my god", "holy sh*t', "fu**kk". no i haven't lost it, those are my reactions every 5 minutes through this episode. all of us have been waiting eagerly for this episode to find out what will happen after that amazing ending of last week's episode. and boy what a show! i mean after this one i can truly say that BB IS the best show ever! everything is so perfect in this episode. multiple changing points in just one episode. and when you expect that the beginning of it is amazing and shocking.. wait till you see the rest of it! i mean wawww!! the best scenes of the show are in this episode, tension rising up so quickly that other shows might do a whole season just to produce the same level of tension and i mean it! so really no one have a damn clue what will happen next, really cant wait till next week! 10000/10.
