Of course, what REALLY happened was, Walt totally DID poison Brock, just not with ricin. Walt had Saul steal the cigarette from Jesse so it would look like Gus did it. Then Walt poisoned Brock with Lily of the Valley…if things broke right, Jesse would suspect Gus poisoned Brock and only later would Jesse think it was an accident when the toxicology report came back with Lily of the Valley instead of ricin. By that point, Gus would already be dead. Which is exactly how it turned out.
This all might sound confusing to you. But not to me, a professional recapper. (I drink).
So here’s where we are now: Jesse is operating under the notion that this was all a big misunderstanding. Brock ingested Lily of the Valley by accident. Sure, he might have helped Walt kill Gus, but that was probably for the best. Now he and Walt have to move forward…but whatever happened to the missing ricin cigarette in the first place? Jesse figures he must have lost it. Which wouldn’t be a big deal if not for the fact that there’s now a cigarette filled with slow-acting deadly poison out there somewhere.
And right now, on the phone, he’s asking Walt to help him retrace his steps and find it before some dumbass finds it and smokes it. Where’s the damn ricin?
Walt tries to reassure Jesse. He tells Jesse that Jesse probably left it in the superlab, meaning the ricin is burned up, but Jesse won’t accept that. Jesse won’t rest until he knows where the ricin is. As we hear Walt and Jesse’s phone conversation, Walt looks at the ricin cigarette on his coffee table.
Walt decides he has to sneak the ricin cigarette back into Jesse’s house somehow, so Jesse will find it and be satisfied. He even volunteers to “help” Jesse look around. But rather than just return the ricin itself, Walt decides to make it EVEN MORE COMPLICATED and smuggle a cigarette full of table salt back into Jesse’s place instead. As for the ricin, Walt unscrews an electrical outlet cover (electricity again!) and hides it inside. If you’ve got a vial of deadly poison, who knows? Might come in handy.
Then Walt goes over to Jesse’s place to help him “look” for the missing ricin, but presumably to plant the cigarette-plus-salt back into the house somewhere when Jesse isn’t looking and finally tie off this goddamn loose end.
So we get a long montage of Walt and Jesse turning the house upside down to find the ricin cigarette. Even Jesse’s Roomba robot has joined the search. But they don’t find anything. Walt and Jesse sit on the couch, exhausted.
Hang on a second. The Roomba comes around the corner. Walt asks Jesse what the hell it is, like he’s never heard of one before. No. Walt couldn’t be using the ROOMBA for his nefarious deeds? Can he? OH YES HE CAN!
This robot has to be violating at least one of the Asimov directives, doesn’t it?
