Added DiffLines:

* CallBack: Jesse's "Did you just bring a bomb into a hospital?" mirrors Walt's "You brought a meth lab to the airport?" from ''[[Recap/BreakingBadS2E9FourDaysOut 4 Days Out]]''.


With the plan to kill Gus with a car bomb failed, Walt hurriedly removes the bomb from Gus's car and rushes into the hospital to ask Jesse if there is any other way to catch Gus off guard. Before Jesse can answer, however, he is taken into custody by federal authorities to answer for how he thinks Brock was poisoned with ricin.

* WhatTheHellHero: Jesse practically has a melt down right then and there when inquiring if Walt [[TooDumbToLive brought the bomb into the hospital with him]].

Gus arrives at Casa Tranquila and, after Tyrus gives him the all-clear, confronts Hector, calling him a coward and a "crippled little rata". He takes a syringe of poison from Tyrus, informs Hector that it would be his last chance to look at him, and prepares to inject him.

** After Walter learns about Hector Salamanca and his location, he conspires with him, has him talk with the DEA, and gives him the bomb, expecting Gus to make his appearance as he uses Hector to blow himself and Gus up. Gus took the bait all too well.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseExplosives: In reality, an explosion strong enough to blow a door clear off its hinges from a few meters away would have at the very least immediately killed someone as close as Gus due to the overpressure, and likely have sent them flying as well. And that's assuming they didn't simply get turned into LudicrousGibs. But then we wouldn't have had that great reveal.


* FailedASpotCheck: Even with Tyrus ''standing right behind Hector'', he somehow fails to notice the big bomb stuck to Hector's wheelchair. Prior to that, Tyrus had swept the room for bugs in preparation of Gus's visit and also managed to miss Walt hanging outside the window to plant the bomb afterward, despite Hector's next room neighbor cheerfully hailing him through her own window and almost blowing his cover.

* FieryCoverup: After killing Gus, Walt goes to the superlab to free Jesse and they both proceed to flood it with chemicals and exit, pulling the laundry's fire alarm as they go, before the timer they set up gives off a spark, triggering a conflagration that torches the whole basement down.

** After Hector ''does'' look at him, he repeatedly rings his bell and the sound it gives appears to be off, muffled and tinny (as if something's impairing its proper working), right before the camera pans down to show the bomb wired to it.

* {{Foreshadowing}}:
** "Did you just bring a bomb to the hospital?" Walt blows up a nursing home later.
** Turns out the teddy bear at the opening of Season 2 didn't actually foreshadow Walt's end...[[note]]The teddy bear has its entire left side burnt by the plane crash[[/note]]
** Another one hinting at Gus' fate. When he is in the car at front of the nursing home, the camera is framed so that shadows fall on the right half of his face.
