** Booking a plane takes way more time than illegally smuggle in when you are part of the smuggling business. Also the Salamanca rep probably means they have a record hat stops them from crossing legally.



** Clearly? I'm pretty sure they just smuggled in the back of an ice cream truck even back then (they move heroin so persons isn't that far fetched). Remember that Tortuga likely gave intel to the feds about the Salamanca crew. It would also explain why they can't stay much longer in the U.S when Hector remains.



** Tuco's abuelita.



** matbe she can make it but by that point it's not like Walt cares.



** Can he proves Jessie made the prank call? gonna be hard since he was talking to him the whole time. It could have been a coincidence and after sending the guy to the hospital it doesn't matter what he should have done he fucked up and it's over.



** He was in a courthouse no? wouldn't there already be cops to rush in.



** There is no real order of importance, he probably didn't know Victor was spotted on the crime scene since Mike didn't told him, he likely snapped at how everything went poorly.



** Going to the cops.



** Hank mentionned he knows he'll have to face the music but he'll rather get fired than let a meth kingpin get away with murder.



*** It was just one alleged dealer (no proof yet) that got sent to the hospital by someone investigating outside his bound who had sever issues since he killed Tuco (the bar brawl on past episode for example and his experience with Tortuga didn't help) if someone actually decides to dig in the issues they are gonna find out that Hank should't have been working on the force when it's clear he needed a break and the only link to the Cartel Jesse has is still he killed one of their members which Hank was about to get killed for the same reason, it really doesn't make sense to pester Jesse when they are deep in shit with the whole thing.

And even then there is no need to question, the smallest check on Jessie's record will show how stupid it is to think he hired Cartel assassins, if they go questioning him even pass that they aren't being strong, they are trying to scapegoat Jessie so the beating looks justified.



** At no point letting someone die next to your surrogate son is right. What the hell? He might as well have been right blowing up a nursing home with that logic (what if old people or a nurse get injured he is protecting his family).




to:

** It's likely they would say the seals were shit and even if they think a heist happened they can't tell when it did for sure.



** No, they'll try to pin Mike for it, guy lost his hazard pay twice so he decided to skip town and kill all the witnesses before they talk about his hideouts and stuff.



** You can shoot an arsonist to stop him from starting a wildfire. Fire isn't the kind of stuff that just hit one place and never hurts anyone it spreads and and fumes the whole neighborhood.




to:

** Mike won't like it but at worst he'll quit, he kind of owe Gus and is not as moral as fans say, he was a DirtyCop that closed eyes on a lot of stuff.



** Better Call Saul shows it was Lydia and Madrigal that set it up.



** You'll be surprised how higher up have to pitch in for P.R or simply to make things roll faster. I knew a logistic director who sometime helped disposing of cardboard when things was too slow or use forklifts when no one was available.



** Casinos won't write a five billion losses. at one point someone will realize it doesn't make sense when Walt can't play any gambling game correctly yet has 50000 income a week.



*** Skyler is not dumb, she knows Walt killed the nine criminals in jail so they don't strike a deal. Plus the three murders listed was done by blowing up a '''retirement home''' so yes what's one junkie compared to that? It's kind of in-character for Skyler too, she was always kind of passive-aggressive with Walt's choices but when it comes to cover up she is really proactive about it (hustling Bogden car-wash, trying to make walt appears good at card for the casino story to hold true, destroying her professional image by pretending to be a ditz in front of the IRS etc.) so yes as things start looking bad for her she will take desperate measures and after her drowning attempt it's pretty clear she doesn't care much about the whole no killing thing. Walt look surprised by it but that's because he is blind to how bad his actions affected his family (Flynn even told him how horrible he was this whole year and that was before discovering he was a meth dealer.)

** I imagine he'd need a legitimate paying job for the same reason Walt had the car wash: You can't live purely off of dirty cash. And the job is crap because he has to stay low-profile to avoid drawing attention. It'd be very suspicious if some big, huge business guy just appeared out of nowhere one day, and it'd be even more suspicious when he happens to look kinda like that sleazy Albuquerque lawyer whose cheesy late night TV commercials have gone viral on YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and all the other usual social media outlets by this point due to his association with Heisenberg. Managing a Cinnabon? Well, that's something he can do. It's peaceful, it's quiet, it's low-key. It's a good gig for him. And it makes honest pay that doesn't come off as fishy.

** Basically Mike is popular and Kaylee seems like a cute kid. The idea of a BadassGrandpa who despite the actual themes of the show makes the idea of a punch clock villain really cool leaving his little girl a LOT of money is cool, especially when we see it from his perspective. At the same time people are reasonable enough to know that Mike shouldn't be allowed to leave this money for Kaylee; the law is completely right, but in their minds it's like, "make an exception for Mike, he did it all for his grandchild". And Kaylee probably didn't even *need* that much money and would be fine if you don't count missing her grandpa. Viewers know the law isn't wrong, but it's a TV show and they want the character they root for to succeed, so they find someone to blame and it happens to be Hank. People, especially in internet forums, blame fictional characters for stuff they couldn't know, do or prevent all the time. They don't mean a lot by it.

* On that note,notice the quantity of HF in the lab when they're putting Victor in the barrel. One wonders if Gus expected a high causality rate,cause I'm pretty damn sure that hydrofluoric acid does NOT belong in any amphetamine synth.

to:

*** Mike is not a moron he knows acid can dissolve a body, he just wondered if Jesse and Walt knew what they were doing because Mike is not usually doing that, also yes you can ad will do a lot of thing if someone put a gun on you and leads you to a place to kill you, like trying to escape when you see they are going to the desert, fighting for the gun, pleading the same way Walt did in the lab etc. Why would Walt do nothing when they are gonna kill him if he let them?

*** But Mike didn't even know the acid would dissolve a body until Walt and Jesse explained it would work. And it's not like Walt could do anything while being driven to the desert with a gun to his head.

* When Mike and Victor were going to kill Walt at the end of season 3, why did they bring him to the lab? Wouldn't it have been easier and made more sense to drive him out to the desert and bury him out in the middle of nowhere? What did they plan on doing with his body?

** He probably clocked the peace time the moment his dealers said they aren't using kids anymore. because before that they have yet to make official the change.
