Back to the immediate aftermath of Gus's death: Skyler is dazed at Walt's murderous success, Walt and Jesse make peace, and Hank visits the burned-out lab. Walt remembers the surveillance cameras Gus used at the lab, so they turn to an angry Mike for help. Can they get rid of the digital evidence in police custody? Is hubris going to trip up Walt?

Did You Know?


Throughout the entire series, Vince Gilligan uses symbolism with the characters' color of clothing. In the beginning of the episode, Walt is wearing a green shirt when he kills Gus and when he gets home. The color green represents greed, jealousy, ambition and growth. After he cleans up everything he used to make the bomb, he changes into a blue shirt. Blue represents royalty. Symbolizing the crown has switched hands from Gus unto Walt. See more »

The show is reaching to it's climax. once again the genius of the writer is showing off but this time it comes out of jesse with his uniq idea of magnet ruining the lap top hard drive. but still walter is at the center of attention. he's the boss now. at least he feels like it. let's see what the show has to offer in future.
