Storyline

Walt survives the gun battle in the desert but others do not. Jesse survives but Walt wants him dead and expects Todd's uncle Jack to go through with their deal. Something far worse is in store for Jesse and Walt takes the opportunity to tell him about Jane's death. Meanwhile Hank's wife Marie visits her sister Skyler at the car-wash to tell her Walt has been arrested. At Marie's insistence, Skyler tells Walt Jr. about his father's secret. By the time Skyler and Walt Jr. get home Walt is already there and wants them to pack and leave with him. He soon realizes it's all over and leaves, but takes baby Holly with him. With the police now involved, Walt makes one last phone call to Skyler. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

Walt calls home. In long shots he is under bright sunshine. In close up he is under cloud. The RV casts a dull shadow. Then from a different angle (more to Walt's right) there is bright sunshine and dark shadows again. See more »

Quotes

Walter White: I told you, Skyler. I warned you for a solid year. You cross me, there will be consequences. What part of that didn't you understand?

Crazy Credits

When the opening credits begin after the first commercial break, the names of the first three actors appear in the normal sequence with normal timing. At the moment when the name Dean Norris would normally appear, the camera shows Walt looking at his own reflection in the rear view mirror. The name does not appear, and Walt turns the mirror to the side. The camera focuses in on the mirror's new reflection, an empty spot in the New Mexican desert. We then see Walt pause for several moments. Finally, as Walt begins to move on, the name Dean Norris appears on the screen. See more »

Walter White Is The King
15 September 2013 | by mrxelementSee all my reviews

This episode has to be one of the best episodes ever!! Walter White has no where to run? Or does he? By leaving off with a sweet taste of the cliffhanger from last episode is jaw-dropping from point A to point B. All this excitement of what's going to happen next is unpredictable that leaves me in a state of shock. Already in the five minutes of this episode is leaving me breathless wanting me more and more and though more does come. This is how a final season should end bringing bangs everywhere to the table. I love how it all ties up. Who knows what's next for Walter White, only two more weeks to see the great Heisenberg fall or rise up.
