Meanwhile, out in Arizona, Lydia meets with [[Recap/BreakingBadS5E7SayMyName Declan and his crew;]] after [[Recap/BreakingBadS5E9BloodMoney taking over Heisenberg's operation,]] the quality of the blue meth had declined sharply. She is displeased with the unkempt, filthy state of their lab and suggests Declan hire Todd, who [[Recap/BreakingBadS5E7SayMyName worked under Heisenberg]] and would know how to make quality meth. Declan adamantly refuses, however. With Declan no longer proving to be of any use, Lydia signals for Todd, [[Recap/BreakingBadS5E8GlidingOverAll Jack, and his neo-Nazi gang]] to come and deal with them. As Declan and his cook leave the lab to investigate, gunfire rings out. Todd eventually comes to retrieve Lydia, guiding her out of the lab as she closes her eyes so as to not see the death and carnage wrought upon Declan's crew. Jack personally executes Declan as Todd escorts Lydia away.

At night, an elderly man prepares to drive off, but upon starting his truck, pauses and gets out to find a bundle of cash laying in his drive way. He then notices a small trail of money leading to the car Jesse was last seen driving across town. Nearby, Jesse himself is seen lying down in a roundabout, completely unresponsive to his surroundings.

After having been forced to face the reality that Hank knows his identity, Walt rushes back to his car and calls the car wash, asking for Skyler. She cannot be reached, because she was already talking with somebody else. Looking out his window, Walt realizes just who she is in talks with...

Skyler meets with Hank at a Mexican diner. Hank wants Skyler to tell him everything she knows about Walt's criminal enterprise, but Skyler feels very uneasy about Hank's gung-ho desire to apprehend Walt and ponders if she should contact a lawyer. Hank tries to assure her that he's only interested in her safety, as well as her family's. Skyler cannot help him, however, and tries to leave. When he continues to try to ask her questions, she asks Hank if he is arresting her, causing a scene before leaving hurriedly.

As Kuby and Huell are sent to collect Walt's money from storage, Walt vents to Saul about how Skyler could think to go to Hank before him. The two decide to go over their options, with Saul suggesting "sending him to a trip to Belize", where Mike already was. Walt angrily shoots down the idea; he would not have his family killed, and threatens to send Saul to "Belize" for this offensive suggestion.

Huell and Kuby return to Saul's office, reporting that they had taken all of Walt's money and placed it in barrels in a rental van. After compensating the two, Walt sets off for To'hajiilee. Throughout the day and into the night, Walt works to create a pit to bury his money for safekeeping. Afterwards, he takes note of the money's coordinates: +34° 59'20", -106° 36'52". After commiting the coordinates to memory, he has a lottery ticket printed out with the same numbers as the coordinates, for his own personal reference.

Marie visits Skyler and tries to talk to her about Walt. She asks Skyler how long he had known about Walt's criminal activities, to which Skyler can do naught but cry and apologize. Realizing Skyler knew all along of what Walt was doing, Marie smacks her across the face, accuses her of not cooperating with Hank because she thought he would get away with it, and storms out of the room. She tries to take Holly with her, but Skyler stops her. Hank enters the house as the two sisters scream at each other while Holly cries in Marie's arms. Realizing the situation was precarious, Hank instructs Marie to give Holly back to Skyler before they leave. Appalled at her sister being a willing accomplice to a meth kingpin, Marie quietly tells Hank: "You have to get him."

Walt returns home early in the morning, covered in sweat and dirt. Skyler follows him into the bathroom as an exhausted Walt prepares to take a shower. Skyler explains that she said nothing to Hank and pleads with Walt to talk to her, only for Walt to collapse and lose consciousness. Skyler tends to Walt until he comes to. He tells her that he would turn himself in on the condition that she not return the money he made, so that everything he had done for the family would mean something. Skyler, however, tells Walt that Hank doesn't know anything for certain, so the best thing they can do is keep silent.

Meanwhile, out in Arizona, Lydia meets with Declan and his crew; after taking over Heisenberg's operation, the quality of the blue meth had declined sharply. She is displeased with the unkempt, filthy state of their lab and suggests Declan hire Todd, who worked under Heisenberg and would know how to make quality meth. Declan adamantly refuses, however. With Declan no longer proving to be of any use, Lydia signals for Todd, Jack, and his neo-Nazi gang to come and deal with them. As Declan and his cook leave the lab to investigate, gunfire rings out. Todd eventually comes to retrieve Lydia, guiding her out of the lab and through the junkyard where Declan operated as she closed her eyes so as to not see the death and carnage wrought upon Declan's crew. Jack personally executes Declan as Todd escorts Lydia away.

Back in Albuquerque, Marie suggests that Hank get ahead of the situation and reveal to his colleagues that Walt is Heisenberg. Hank, however, is reluctant to do so; he saw first-hand how his old ASAC, Merkert, was sacked after it came to light that his friend and associate, Gustavo Fring, was a meth kingpin. To reveal that his brother-in-law was the infamous Heisenberg would be career suicide. If he was going to reveal Walt's true identity, he wanted hard, irrefutable evidence that would ensure his downfall, so he wouldn't end his career in vain. Until then, however, he had no choice but to bide his time.

When Hank goes back into work, he learns from Gomez that Jesse Pinkman was in custody yet again, having been brought in after being reported throwing around large quantities of money from his car. Hank sees Jesse sitting in the interrogation room in a state of catatonia, paying no heed to the officers questioning him, and asks to be given a few minutes alone with him...

* AdultFear: Marie not only discovers that her sister is married to a drug kingpin that her own husband was chasing after for the past year, but also the fact that her sister was complicit in much of his criminal activities and hid them from her. Skyler in turn has trouble explaining her own situation to her DEA brother-in-law, who is trying to go all-out in reprimanding him, and later gets into conflict with Marie as she tries to take the baby out of her house. Hank is horrified, having no idea about what Walt could've done to keep Skyler complicit and seeing the two sisters fight over the state and safety of their family.


Added DiffLines:

* PooledFunds: Downplayed. As they retrieve Walt's money, upon seeing the massive pile of cash, Huell decides that he simply ''has'' to take the chance to lie down on top of it. Kuby admonishes him for "channel[ing] Scrooge [=McDuck=]" before being persuaded to join.
* RunForTheBorder: Parodied. Huell tosses Kuby the idea of stealing Walt's millions of dollars for themselves and heading for Mexico. Kuby advises against this, considering [[TheDreaded the man that they're working for]].
