Walt is hiding out with Saul's man waiting to get his new identity and leave Albuquerque. He's joined by none other than Saul himself who is also on the run from the authorities due to his connection with Heisenberg. Walt is angry, particularly at Todd's uncle for taking most of his money. He wants Saul to help him get it back but Saul's advice is to turn himself in before the police turn on his family. When Walt is finally relocated, he finds himself living in a cabin on a snowy piece of land in New Hampshire. Saul's man comes once a month with food and the like but Walt is basically a self-exiled prisoner unable to venture off his property for fear of being recognized. He seems ready to pack it in but comes full circle after seeing his former business partners on TV. Written by garykmcd

Saul Goodman, an attorney, tells his client that the DEA is going to "RICO" his assets and what will occur after that happens. RICO (Racketeering and Corrupt Influences Act) is a legal measure used to try certain criminals as organized criminal enterprise. As such, it could only be applied to a criminal indictment or a case by a US Attorney, not the DEA. An attorney would know this and, in the interests of making things clear to his/her client, they would have specified US Attorney and not the DEA. See more »

What happens next ?!
23 September 2013 | by Den-CallananSee all my reviews

After this outstanding episode of Breaking Bad we will have friends and colleagues disputing over what will happen in the final episode. How will it end? What is Walt's purpose with the gun in the trunk of the car? Did Walt's previous partners and founders of Grey Matter push him to his tightly bound limits?

Then we will have an extensive amount of people who'll just watch with admiration and observe the fact that this series is one that sits confidently as one of, if not the finest series ever written.

From the dawning of the series to the imminent final climax I have been left astonished countless times, by elegantly cunning plots, unforeseen developments and breathtaking acting.

This episode once again delivers all. Answering many of my previous questions yet opening doors to so many more. As a build up to next weeks series finale it couldn't have been shaped better.
