Jesse approaches the truck. Walt turns on the magnet. And it works! At a little less than 40 feet from the truck, the laptop goes dead.
Sounds easy, right? Hold on. Then, it flies from Jesse’s grip and slams into the side of the truck, shattering. To be safe, Walt has the Junk Man double the amperage on the batteries to make the magnet even stronger. So their secret magnet weapon works.
Mike offers one last nagging doubt…if the magnet is THAT powerful, everything in the evidence room will slam around. The cops will be onto them in no time. Walt, cooly, replies that this won’t be a problem. In sixty seconds, they’ll be gone.
Walt is too old to know he just referenced a Nicholas Cage movie
So let’s see how ol’ Teddy is doing these days. She looks hesitant to even be here. But eventually she musters the strength to go see him. Finds her way to his room and when she first sees him…holy shit, she’s upset.
EXPERT MEDICAL DIAGNOSIS, FROM DR. SAINT CLARE OF ASSISI: What have we got? He’s bald, with a neck brace, so I’m guessing Ted’s had a skull fracture and maybe a broken neck too. But he IS conscious, and he’s talking in full sentences. His voice is raspy but it looks like all his cognition is there, so it looks like he’ll recover eventually.
Ted is definitely cognizant enough to remember what led to him being put in the hospital: the run-in with Hewell and Bill Burr, all orchestrated by Skyler. But fortunately for her, he’s benevolent about it. He tells he didn’t tell the cops what really happened, that he told the cops it was an accident. Ted’s got kids and he just wants to be left alone. He won’t bother her if she won’t bother him.
Which, really, is almost as devastating for Skyler as Ted being dead, because now their relationship is over.
But at least Walt doesn’t have any competition any more, right?
And now it’s time for Operation Giant Magnet to commence.
It’s night. The police station is surrounded by a 12-foot high fence, and covered with security cameras. For Mike that’s a cinch. He approaches the building sprays a foamy substance onto the cops’ security camera. Then he hotwires the passcode box and gets the gate to open. He flashes a flashlight off towards Walt and Jesse, who are about a hundred yards away in the truck from the junkyard.
Walt and Jesse drive through the gate. They head around the back to the parking lot outside the evidence room. To get close enough for the magnets to work, they have to drive up onto the curb.
Dude, I just blew a tire hitting a curb in LA the other day. Fuck me I’m having flashbacks
