WALT AND SKYLER’S BEDROOM
At first Skyler ignores him, so Walt just kisses the baby. Finally he presses Skyler to acknowledge him. He wants to know what she’s feeling. And she tells him she’s a little relieved, but mostly scared.
Like a psychopath, Walt can’t fathom what she might be afraid of. After all, Walt just killed the family’s primary threat.
Dummy. Skyler is afraid of YOU, Walt!
Skyler leaves the room and Walt sits alone with the baby. Then he says, “Oh, shit.” He’s forgotten one more detail in his cleanup. What is it?
THE RUINS OF THE METH SUPERLAB
Hank, in a Hazmat suit, climbs down the ladder into the now-demolished superlab, where Walt and Jesse spent so much of Season Four. At the end of Season Four Walt had it blown up and now it’s a charred mess, and since it’s underground, the floor is total mud.
Behind him, Gomez climbs down and sarcastically tells Hank that yeah, he knows. Hank was right all along. This is an “I told you so” moment. Gomez is waiting for Hank to take his victory lap.
Hank is typically a cocky character, but right now he’s not interested in gloating. He might have been right that Gus was a criminal, but there are still questions, and now that the Superlab is demolished, Hank looks worried that he might not be able to answer them.
Hank looks up at the ceiling and sees some twisted up electronics. Gomez thinks it might be lab equipment, but Hank knows what it is: the remains of a video camera. This could be the only lead they have.
We’re in Mexico now. We know because they’re using the yellow lens on the camera.
This would be kinda cool if they weren’t ripping it straight from the movie Traffic
And here is Mike. He’s on his feet! Looks like he’s gonna survive the shooting from the end of last season. Right now he’s in a bath robe feeding some chickens. He’s really absorbed in this activity, making sure each of them gets enough food, and even referring to them by name. It looks like he’s taking his recovery seriously—nothing too strenuous.
But all that comes to an end. His doctor approaches with a message. He’s just received word that Gus has been killed.
A BACK-COUNTRY ROAD
Immediately, Mike is in a car headed for the border, gunning it for Albuquerque. Looks like the ol’ rehab schedule is right out the window.
Mike sees a car off in the distance. It’s a one-lane road they’re on and Mike and the mystery car are headed right for each other. In a game of…yes…chicken.
They dodge, and Mike gets out. Walt and Jesse get out of the other vehicle. Mike is immediately hostile, pulling a gun and aiming it straight at Walt. There’s been a time jump from the moment Mike got the news of Gus’s death to this point, so we don’t know what Mike’s done in the mean time, but if I had to guess, he knew immediately that Walt was the one who did Gus in. Mike’s smart like that.
