'Breaking Bad' Series Finale — Walter White Finishes What He Started That interview of Gretchen and Elliot Schwartz was more than just the.
Walt finds the meth and makes the delivery on time, but misses the birth of his daughter. Jane blackmails Walt into giving Jesse his share of their drug money, after Walt initially refused due to Jesse's drug use. After talking to a stranger at a bar about family — not knowing that the man is Jane's father Donald John de Lancie — Walt again breaks into Jesse's apartment to find the lovers passed out in a heroin stupor.
Jane rolls onto her back, vomits, and begins to choke. Walt instinctively rushes to turn her on her side to prevent her from choking to death, but then stops and watches her die. Walt has Saul's cleaner clear any connection Jesse has to Jane's death, and convinces Jesse to enter rehab. Walt undergoes an operation to remove the remaining cancerous growth. Walt's anesthesia-induced references to a "second cell phone" — the one he uses to deal drugs — makes Skyler suspicious, leading her to uncover many of his lies and leave with their children.
Just after her departure, two passenger planes collide directly above Walt's house; the accident was caused by Donald, who works as an air traffic controller and was so overcome with grief that he was not paying attention to his work. Walt watches the accident in horror, unaware that he is indirectly responsible for it.
Season 3[ edit ] Walt is overcome with guilt when he discovers he was indirectly responsible for the airplane collision, and refuses Gus' offer to produce meth in a state-of-the-art laboratory hidden under an industrial laundry for a million dollars a month. Now separated from Skyler and living in an apartment, Walt admits to her that he has been financing his treatment by cooking meth. Horrified, Skyler asks for a divorce in return for her silence, and demands that Walt have nothing to do with their children.
After he discovers Jesse is cooking and selling his own version of the blue meth, Walt agrees to cook his meth for Gus. He is assisted by accomplished chemist Gale Boetticher David Costabile and the business seems to be running smoothly. However, Jesse threatens to turn Walt in to the police if he interferes with Jesse's own meth sales, so Walt convinces Gus to hire Jesse to replace Gale as his assistant.
Gambling that Skyler will not turn him in to the police due to the harm it would cause to his son, Walt returns to his house. After a few attempts at bluffing him, Skyler comes to uneasily accept the situation and helps Walt launder his drug money, but refuses to have anything to do with him outside of business. Walt tries to get back at her by making a pass at the principal at his school, who puts him on indefinite suspension.
Two cousins of Walt's former distributor Tuco seek revenge against those responsible for his death, and find out Walt's identity from their uncle Hector Salamanca Mark Margolis.
Believing that Walt betrayed Tuco, they go to his house and prepare to kill him with a silver axe. Gus discovers this, and to protect his investment in Walt, he convinces them to instead target Hank, who actually killed Tuco. Tuco's cousins die in the attempt on Hank's life, while Hank survives, but is temporarily paralyzed from the waist down. Skyler strong-arms Walt into paying for Hank's care, and creates a cover story about Walt counting cards at casinos to explain his money. Walt angers Gus by killing two of Gus' dealers in an attempt to protect Jesse, who had been planning to kill them himself for their murder of a child gang member.
Gus responds by putting a hit on Jesse and re-hiring Gale as Walt's assistant, with the intention of replacing Walt as soon as possible. Walt plots to kill Gale to avoid becoming disposable, but Gus' henchman Victor lures Walt to the laundry facility, where Gus's cleaner Mike Ehrmantraut Jonathan Banks is waiting to kill him.
Walt frantically calls Jesse and tells him that Walt is about to be killed and Jesse will have to take out Gale himself. Victor rushes to Gale's house but finds him shot dead. Season 4[ edit ] In the aftermath of Gale's murder, Mike holds Walt at the lab to await Gus' arrival.
Victor arrives with Jesse, and proceeds to start the cook process himself to show Gus that Walt and Jesse are not indispensable. Gus, however, kills Victor in front of Mike, Walt, and Jesse, in a gruesome show of force. The tension of working under tighter security creates a rift between Walt and Jesse, and Gus uses the opportunity to bring Jesse to his side by having Mike train him in hopes of eventually replacing Walt.
Walt figures out what Gus is up to and gives Jesse homemade ricin with which to poison Gus, but Jesse never goes through with it. Feeling betrayed, Walt engages in a fight with Jesse at his house, after which Jesse tells Walt they are finished. Meanwhile, Skyler buys the car wash where Walt used to work and uses it to launder his drug money. Hank suspects that Gus is involved in the blue meth business.
With the DEA skeptical and unable to drive due to his condition, he enlists Walt's help in the investigation as a driver and tracker. Walt manages to sabotage the investigation, but Gus blames him nonetheless.
Gus rids himself of the Mexican cartel's influence in the area with the help of Mike and Jesse. He then fires Walt and warns him that if Hank gets any closer, he will have Hank killed, and if Walt interferes again, his entire family will be killed.
Walt tries to use one of Saul's connections to get him and his family relocated, but finds that Skyler has used most of his drug money to pay off Ted Beneke's IRS fines to avoid having their own lives investigated. After arranging for Saul to report that Hank was being targeted for assassination again, so that his family would be protected by the DEA, Walt resolves to kill Gus. When Andrea's son Brock falls desperately ill with ricin-like symptoms, Jesse attacks Walt, believing that he poisoned him.
Walt manages to convince Jesse that Gus is the one responsible. After an attempt to kill Gus with a car bomb fails, Walt discovers from Saul that Gus has been visiting Tuco's uncle Hector in his nursing home, to taunt him about the cartel's defeat and the end of the Salamanca family. When Gus comes to the nursing home to kill Hector for turning informant, Hector detonates a pipe bomb Walt made, killing both himself and Gus.
Walt rescues Jesse, who had been kept as a prisoner in the lab, and together they destroy all the evidence and torch the lab. After Brock recovers, Jesse learns that the boy had likely been poisoned by accidentally eating Lily of the Valley berries, not ricin. Walt responds that killing Gus was still the right thing to do.
Walt calls Skyler to tell her they are safe and that he has "won", as the camera pans to a potted Lily of the Valley plant next to Walt's pool, indicating that Walt had in fact poisoned Brock to goad Jesse into action. Part 1[ edit ] Mike attempts to kill Walt in retaliation for Gus' death, but Jesse intervenes and convinces the two men to work together to eliminate their connection to the destroyed lab. The three eventually start a new meth production system with the help of a corrupt pest control company, using residents' homes to cook meth while they are fumigated, using methylamine provided by Lydia Rodarte-Quayle Laura Frasera representative for the conglomerate that owned Gus's franchise.
When her supply is discovered to be tracked by the police, she leaks them information on a train carrying the chemical so they can plan a robbery. The robbery is successful, but Todd Alquist Jesse Plemonsone of the pest control workers, kills a young boy who had seen them. Horrified, Jesse and Mike resolve to leave the business. Walt convinces him to pay off Jesse and Mike and begin distributing Walt's meth instead.
