In the present, Hank has [[Recap/BreakingBadS5E8GlidingOverAll just discovered]] that his brother-in-law Walt has been Heisenberg all along, after stumbling across a book that [[Recap/BreakingBadS3E6Sunset Gale Boetticher]] had given him. He returns to the rest of the family out back, and quickly makes an excuse to leave. On the way home with Marie, he suffers a panic attack and crashes his car into a neighbor's fence. The next day, he compares Gale's handwriting in Walt's book to that in [[Recap/BreakingBadS4E3OpenHouse Gale's notebook,]] confirming that they are identical. For the rest of the episode, Hank digs through boxes and boxes of files from the Gus Fring case, looking for evidence.

Jesse, trying to hang out with his friends, is depressed and dazed. He brings Saul the $5 million that [[Recap/BreakingBadS5E8GlidingOverAll Walt had given him in the previous episode,]] and asks him to give half to [[Recap/BreakingBadS5E6Buyout Drew Sharp's parents,]] and the other to Mike's granddaughter Kaylee. Saul tries to explain how unwise this would be: the DEA would quickly snatch up any money sent to Kaylee, and Drew's parents would rather know what became of their son than receive money. Jesse isn't having it. Saul later tells Walt, who is in a chemotherapy session, about the situation. He brings Jesse's money back to him and insists that he should keep it. Jesse remains distant and unreceptive to Walt's attempts to connect with him, and he as much as reveals that he knows Walt killed Mike. When Walt insists that he didn't, telling Jesse that he NEEDS to believe him, Jesse pretends to agree. Eventually, his guilt gets the better of him, and late at night, he drives through the city, tossing his money out of his car window into random yards.

Putting two and two together, [[OhCrap he realizes that Hank is finally onto him.]] He visits Hank at home the next day to ask how he's doing. However, as he's leaving, he decides to question Hank about the GPS tracker. Hank then becomes enraged, punching him in the face, and recounting a handful of the horrible things which he now knows Walt was behind. Walt admits nothing, but declares that even if Hank is right, Walt will be dead long before he ever had a chance to be convicted; his cancer has returned, and this time is inoperable. The episode ends with Walt [[PowerMakesYourVoiceDeep growling at]] Hank that if he really wants to go after him, he should "tread lightly."

* RealityEnsues: Jesse doesn't want his cut of the money and so he decides to give it away to Drew Sharp's parents and Kaylee Erhmantraut. As Saul points out, however, this plan is doomed from the start: Drew's parents only want closure, not money, so dropping 2.5 million dollars on their doorstep isn't going to help anyone, and Kaylee is being monitored now that Mike's gone, so any money that tries to get to her isn't getting there (Saul also reveals that Mike's two previous attempts to get her money have failed). Jesse is forced to throw the money out his car windows since he can't actually get it to the people he wants.
