-Two, kill Todd. Self-explanatory.
-Or three, keep Todd on payroll, but relegate him to tenting houses for fumigation. Todd is off meth duty entirely.
Walt puts it up to a vote. Walt likes option three, and so does Mike. (It does seem like the most pragmatic, I gotta admit).
Jesse would probably choose Option #1, but he sees he’s outvoted so he doesn’t even bother. It’s done.
VAMONOS, LOCKER ROOM
Todd is waiting for the verdict. Mike comes out and tells him he’s still a member of the operation. Todd is relieved, but Mike throws him up against the lockers. Mike’s got a warning for Todd…will Mike straighten out Todd’s maverick ways?
Sort of. Mike’s gripe with Todd isn’t that Todd shot a kid, it’s that Todd brought a gun on a job without permission. Whoa. We’ll discuss at the end of the recap.
Alone, Todd goes to his car to head home for the evening after probably the worst day on the job anyone’s ever had. But in his car, he pauses for a second. He fishes out the mason jar with the tarantula inside it.
What the hell are we to make of this?
A DEA agent is sitting in a car with binoculars, observing someone unseen off camera. I’m assuming this is one of the DEA agents assigned to tail Mike, because Mike likes to take his granddaughter to the playground.
Gomez pops in to check up on the agent. Yep, the agent is surveilling Mike. Right now Mike’s on a bench while his granddaughter climbs a tree. Is it me or does Mike look upset? He’s blinking a lot. Tears?
Anyway, Mike takes out a notepad, writes a message, and leaves it under the trash can. Gomez knows what’s up: this is a classic dead drop. They watch Mike leave with his granddaughter, and Gomez decides to check the message out and see what it says.
Gomez walks over to the trash can and retrieves the note. It says “Fuck you”.
Yup. Did YOU really think the DEA could tail Mike without tipping him off? I didn’t.
Mike is alone in his kitchen at night, on a laptop and listening to some recordings taken from Hank’s office. He’s seeing what the DEA has on him so far, and it doesn’t sound like much. Gomez reports to Hank that Mike’s slipped all their tails, and all Hank can offer is a platitude that Mike will slip up eventually.
Side note: the bugs Walt put in Hank’s office have also recorded Hank’s day-to-day activities as the new ASAC of the Albuquerque office and it sounds like Hank’s a taskmaster. Getting on people for shoddy paperwork and all that.
