Ah I’m so sick today. Not sure why I’m even writing a spoiler sentence today but it’s here and hopefully I won’t pass out before I finish this recap.
So this episode opens with the bizarre scene of Walt and Jesse I suppose when they first began to cook meth (both had much more hair then. Also can they please stop showing Walt in his dingy ass skivvies? My goodness I know y’all are going for realness but damn nobody wants to see that). The scene ends with Walt calling a then pregnant Skyler and discussing baby names and taking a family trip.
So now we get back to the present day and the aftermath of the shootout. We see Steve is dead (Damn shame. It took me 6 weeks to figure out this guy’s name and he’s dead. Terrible), Hank is injured and Jesse is nowhere to be found. Todd’s uncle is prepared to kill Hank especially after discovering he’s a DEA agent but Walt pleads with them to spare him and offers him 80 million dollars (the money buried in the ground) to spare Hank. Hank pretty much turns down the deal so he’s shot to death too.
Walt collapses and he is absolutely inconsolable as he stares at Hank’s dead body. Only Todd seems to feel sorry for Walt but the other guys are more concerned with digging up Walt’s money. After they are done digging up the money and burying Hank and Steve, Todd’s uncle tells Walt that he’s going to leave him one barrel of money to go away and pretend things never happened. Walt agrees and he points out that Jesse is hiding under his car. After they get Jesse, Todd asks his uncle to hold off on killing him because they need to find out how much info he told Hank. Walt doesn’t really give a shit about what they do with Jesse and he coldly tells him that he watched his ex Jane die and that he did nothing to save her (Well damn, in his mind it’s like he’s pissed that they are even).
After Walt finally decides to leave the desert he drives a short distance before realizing that he’s out of gas. When he checks things out he sees that the gas tank was pierced open in the shootout and had been leaking the whole time. Now with no car he has to take his one lone barrel of money and rolls it through the desert (Proof that money is not always useful). Walt finally arrives at the home of an old Native-American man and buys his pickup truck from him.
Meanwhile Marie arrives at the car wash. We all know why she’s there. Yes her happy ass couldn’t wait to run and tell Skyler that Walt has been “arrested”. Marie wants to gloat but instead she cries to show concern while Skyler is clearly devastated. Marie then tells Skyler that she needs to prepare to move in with her and Hank but before that can happen she wants all existing copies of the fake confession DVD and she wants Skyler to tell her son everything.
Later, Todd retrieves a badly beaten Jesse from a hole in the ground. Jesse begs Todd to let him go but Todd leads Jesse to his meth lab. Todd chains Jesse on a tether in the lab and once there Jesse sees a picture of Andrea and her son. Todd tells Jesse that they are about to cook (Um if they wanted him to cook it probably wasn’t a good idea to beat dude to the point where he can barely open his eyes. I assume you need to see to do that kinda thing). Back at the car wash they break the news to Skyler’s son and he is beyond pissed. He doesn’t want to talk to either of them and demands to either talk to Walt or Hank to get things straight. After he is told that he can’t reach them he storms out.
Walt arrives home and he starts packing everything. Meanwhile Skyler and the kids make their way back home and they pull up to see the pickup truck in front of the house. Walt urges Skyler and his son to pack while he is bombarded with questions from the both of them about Hank’s whereabouts. After more prodding they figure out that Hank is dead. Skyler gets angry and cuts Walt with a knife. Walt’s son then calls the police so of course Walt takes off but he takes Holly with him (Took the baby? My goodness but why does Skyler flip now? I can understand the son being mad because he was lied to the whole time but now that someone they both care about is dead she’s back on her sister’s side? WTF is that? Can’t be a ride or die flip flopper). Later while Walt changes Holly’s diaper in a bathroom, Holly starts saying ‘mama’ over and over.
Later Skyler has an Amber Alert put out for Holly. Walt calls and threatens Skyler and acts crazy while the police record everything. During the phone call Walt vaguely alludes to his crimes and he also threatens to kill Skyler. Over the phone Walt doesn’t confess to killing Hank but he does tell her that Hank is never coming back (Walt cries like a bitch during this whole phone call too). After he gets off the phone Walt drops Holly off at the fire station and the episode ends the next morning with Walt waiting at the pickup stop (after presumably making arrangements with Saul) to be driven away to begin a new life.
