Favourite scenes –
The Hank and Skyler scene is an acting masterclass.
The Belize scene with Saul and Walt.
The scene with Marie and Skyler, just incredible.
Which leads us to a deeply disturbing scene, where Marie is trying to take Holly with her.
Lydia hiding in the bus stairwell.
Todd leading Lydia around the dead people with her eyes closed.
Welcome back to our police friends from Season 4.
Notable Music – “Quimey Neuquén (Chancha Via Circuito Remix)” by José Larralde (on youtube) plays when Walter is burying the money
Ending Song – The Breaking Bad theme composed by Dave Porter
Jesse Lightbulb Moment – This is one episode where all the lightbulbs of Jesse appear to be burned out.
Notable Shots –
Look at the clouds reflected in Walt’s car here. Sometimes ABQ really puts on a show with the weather, for the show.
The reflections in the Louboutins of Lydia.

Snoskred Notes –
We know Walt is good at manipulating people but this is really the first time we see Hank doing some major manipulating of Skyler in order to catch Heisenberg.
I love that Skyler calls him out on it, too. She says ” It sounds like what you want… what you want is to get Walt at all costs”
The GPS co-ordinates point to Q studios, which was the home of Breaking Bad in ABQ.
Love that Saul is *still* wearing the Wayfarer 515 ribbon, from the plane crash at the end of season 2. It is lucky there were no other major tragedies, or Saul would have to wear ribbons for all of them.
Did anyone spot the universal symbol for keys in this scene? Mike, how much we miss you.. 🙂
Just when you think all the possible montages have been done, we now get the burying money montage.
Walt couldn’t take a pen to write down the coordinates?
So now, you can watch the next episode right away. Back when this aired, everyone had to wait a week to find out what happened after the door closed on Hank and Jesse.
