Mike tells her to calm down, take off her sunglasses, not worry about being spotted here, and finally, to tell him why she wanted this meeting. Now we’re down to business. She wants to know who killed Gus. Mike tells her to forget about it.
We learn her name is Lydia. She’s somehow connected to Mike and to Gus. We don’t know how just yet. She’s brought a list of eleven names, all employees of Gus and Mike’s, who could potentially be swept up in an investigation and who could tell the cops about her. (One of them, “Mr. Chow”, is the guy in that small chemical storage facility that Mike shot in the hand for withholding some of the illicit shipments to Gus’s empire. You remember, the time when Mike used the balloons from his granddaughter to disable their power lines). She wants Mike’s “input”.
Mike surmises she wants him to kill these eleven guys. All eleven of them. Which is even more preposterous, he tells her, because all eleven of them are HIS employees. They were part of Gus’s syndicate, but MIKE vetted each of them and he knows they won’t talk to the cops. They’re even compensated for an event like the meth empire suddenly going belly up.
It all boils down to this: Lydia’s not from the criminal world. She’s letting her imagination run wild. Mike tells her, basically, to calm the hell down. But this won’t be the last we hear from Lydia.
WALT AND SKYLER’S HOUSE
Walt and Junior are having breakfast. Skyler is noticeably absent and Walt is bothered. He goes back to the bedroom and finds her still in bed. She’s not feeling up to work today. Basically, she’s depressed.
Walt urges her to get out of bed, gently but firmly. She finally staggers to her feet.
Mike enters the DEA lobby. On the way inside, he runs into the aforementioned Mr. Chow on his way out, with a lawyer. Apparently Chow has just been interrogated, just like Mike told Lydia he would be. It looks like Chow stood up to the heat, and now it’s Mike’s turn to do the same.
DEA INTERROGATION ROOM
Hank and Gus sit down with Mike for a confab. This is the first scene they’ve had together as far as I can remember.
If you’re like me and you’ve been yearning to learn more about who Mike is, this scene is for you.
Mike waives his right to an attorney, so they get right down to the interrogation. The go over Mike’s job—he’s the head of corporate security for Los Pollos Hermanos. He does background checks and handles loss prevention. That’s his cover story, anyway. They also know he’s a private detective with a license to operate in New Mexico and other states, and a license to carry a concealed weapon in most states period.
