Skyler just pokes at her salad. Marie tells her the news on Hank, that he’s mostly recovered from the shooting and back at work, but Marie is still bitter about the way everyone at the DEA treated Hank. She thinks Hank ought to tell them to fuck off.
Then Marie asks what Skyler plans to do for Walt’s upcoming birthday. This is a big occasion because it was about a year ago that Walt got the diagnosis. To Marie, Walt is just a gentle cancer patient and every moment he has left is precious. She still has no idea.
Skyler needs a cigarette so she gets up and has one right in front of her sister. Marie flips out, getting all sanctimonious about how it’s illegal and unhealthy and unsanitary but Skyler just yells at her to shut up, over and over, until she breaks down in tears.
Walt and Jesse finish up their cook and tally the results. They have a good first yield. They call it a day.
WALT AND SKYLER’S HOUSE
Marie sits on the couch, waiting to confront Walt. Outside a door slams. Walt is home.
Marie tells him Skyler had a “breakdown” at the car wash and is resting in the bedroom. But Marie wants to know exactly what the hell is causing it. She’s never seen her sister act like this before. Is Walt gambling again? Is the cancer back? Or is it something else? She’s not leaving without an answer.
And Walt blames it on Ted Beneke’s accident. (Side note. Marie didn’t know Ted even had one, so he fills her in. We learn the specifics of what happened to Ted: concussion, broken vertebrae, might never walk again).
Marie also didn’t know Skyler and Ted were having an affair. This would explain why Skyler is so distraught right now, but it’s also a complete shocker to Marie.
Walt begs her not to tell anyone about the affair, but she’s too upset to make sense of anything right now, so she heads out. But before she leaves, she hugs Walt. What a great guy! Stuck with Marie even after she stepped out on him!
Marie leaves. Alone, Walt looks toward the bedroom. Will he comfort Skyler? Nope. He eats an apple.
Jesse, Andrea, and Brock are playing a video game together. A nice little family moment. But Jesse looks a little lost in thought, so Andrea asks him what’s up. He brushes her off.
WALT AND SKYLER’S HOUSE
Skyler is lying on their bed, in the dark. She hears the sound of gunshots in the living room, so she goes out to investigate.
Walt, Junior, and even baby Gracie are watching…Scarface. Yup. More subtlety!
Walt is gleefully showing Junior the best parts of the movie. “Say hello to my little friend!” And as Al Pacino guns down a roomful of people, Skyler watches in horror.
VAMONOS PEST CONTROL
Mike parcels out the take from the first batch of meth. $367,000 a piece between him, Jesse, and Walt. Holy shit! Walt is back in black!
