After Mike takes his leave, Walt confides to Jesse about his thoughts on Victor, Mike's assistant whom Gus killed in the wake of Gale's murder. He explains that, at first, he thought Gus killed Victor to "send a message", but had recently thought of another possible reason: because Victor had tried to cook a batch of meth on his own, taking liberties and paying no respect to the chemistry. "Maybe he flew to close too the sun, and got his throat cut." Walt concludes before he departs, leaving Jesse concerned about what exactly Walt meant...

* KickTheDog: Walt manipulates Jesse into dumping Andrea. This doesn't serve any real pragmatic purpose outside of isolating his partner and making him easier to control.



* AGoodNameForARockBand: Skinny Pete and Badger buy roadie cases at a music store to carry equipment in and out of the labs under the pretense that they're in a band. When the salesman asks the name of their band, there is a GilliganCut to the logo of Walt's new fumigation business: Vamonos Pest.



* ImpliedDeathThreat: Walt's "theory" about why Victor was killed because he "flew too close to the sun" is very foreboding.

Mike visits Dennis in prison and offers him his hazard pay as long as he doesn't rat them out. With Gus dead, Dennis doesn't see how he can get his money back, but Mike reassures him he's working on it. He leaves and plans to visit other former associates to make the same offer. Meanwhile, Walter moves back into the house, much to Skyler's chagrin. Walter later takes Mike to Saul's office. He and Jesse want to bring Mike in on the operation. Saul is hesitant, but eventually gets talked into it. They discuss Mike's role in the operation, handling distribution while Walt and Jesse cooked, then take tours of potential labs and finally come to a fumigation company. Cooking in the warehouse is unideal, but they can use the exterminators as a front for cooking: they put tents up over the house, get the residents out of their homes for a time, then cook within an isolated tent like those used in the back alley hospital where Jesse took Mike and Gus following their business with the Cartel, and leave after turning on the foggers. This way, they stay mobile and can remain incognito.

After the first batch is made, Walt argues with Mike about distribution costs and is even less happy when Mike reveals he has to pay hazard pay to his former associates. Walt demands Mike find his own method of payment, but Jesse offers to let Mike take it from his cut. Walt refuses and pays his end with Mike promising this will continue for the foreseeable future. Jesse is okay with the situation since they are now "owners, not employees". Walt is not so sure.

Added DiffLines:

* CelebrityParadox: Walters Sr. and Jr. are seen sitting together in the living room and watching ''[[Film/Scarface1983 Scarface]]''. ''Scarface'' shares several actors with the show itself: Steven Bauer, who played Don Eladio; Mark Margolis, who played Hector Salamanca; and Miriam Colon, who would later go on to play Tuco's grandmother in ''Series/BetterCallSaul''.


* ConfessToALesserCrime: Marie demands to know from Walt what is going on that has Skyler so upset that she had an emotional breakdown. Walt acquiesces and tells her the truth... that she and Ted had an affair, and is now emotional after his accident. It's not exactly wrong, if only a ''minor'' part of Skyler's recent stress.
