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

Walter White: Yeah. Look, I have business to conduct.
Ed: Your business is your business. My business is keeping you out of custody. You are the target of a nationwide manhunt. Your face is all over TV. You are the hottest client I've ever had by far. That stands to reason you've gotta keep out of sight.
Walter White: And what's keeping me from walking out that gate?
Ed: Nothing. There's a little one horse town 8 miles down the hill. There's not a thing on God's green earth that I could do to stop you from going down there. All ...

That's all I really need to say. IMDb wants me to say more, so I will. Breaking Bad will end as one of the greatest if not the greatest show of all time. It is flawlessly written in a very poetic way that grips the audience. Every episode has its purpose in bringing to life a story that ravages the emotions of the audience. To'hajiilee added fear to my existence. Then Ozymandias ripped away my emotions. And now Granite State....Do I recommend this show? No, I don't recommend it, because that would be a disservice to the show. I tell people they should make watching this show part of their bucket list. It is something that any and every movie/show/TV watcher must see before they die.
