In a flash-forward, Walt sits in a diner and arranges his bacon into the number 52: it's his birthday. Hank and Gomez sift through the remains of the superlab: Hank's moment of triumph. Walt tells Mike that the footage from Gus's security cameras will give them away.
As they flee the scene, Mike chastises Walt and Jesse for leaving the van behind, but Walt insists it's untraceable. Saul reminds Walt that he put himself on the line by participating in Brock's poisoning.
Thrusting the ricin cigarette at him, Saul tells Walt that their business relationship is done.
Walt bridles at that, backing Saul into a corner of the office. Walt returns home to find Skyler changing Holly's diaper in the bedroom. Skyler tries to assure Walt that Ted won't talk, but Walt just wraps his arms around her.
Lawson asks for Walt's assurance that the acquisition won't wind up in Mexico, and then leaves. As he leaves the restaurant, the waitress calls out, "Happy birthday, Mr. He learns that the police have the laptop and scoffs at Walt's thought that they could retrieve it, explaining the evidence room is guarded around the clock.
Lambert." In the parking lot, Walt opens the trunk of a white Volvo and takes out a duffel bag. Jesse repeatedly suggests using a magnet, which eventually gives Walt an idea... Skyler visits Ted in the hospital and finds he's been confined to a halo brace.
Using the clicker he got from Lawson, he finds a nearby car and opens the trunk: inside, there's an M60 machine gun. Later, Walt, Jesse and Mike talk to Old Joe — the junkyard owner that destroyed the RV — who declares their plan "doable, but expensive." Walt asks Jesse to spot his share of the cost. Back at the junkyard, Joe has loaded an old cube van with a lifting crane magnet wired to twenty-one car batteries. She tries to apologize, but he cuts her off, terrified.
He scans the lot, tosses in the duffel and slams the trunk. chatters excitedly about Gus's death, boasting that ìUncle Hank is gonna be a hero, even moreso than before.î Walt joins Skyler in the bedroom, where she's quietly unpacking. Although Mike expresses skepticism about the plan, Jesse insists they need him. Jesse stands at a distance from the rigged truck holding a laptop while Walt turns the dial on a control box. He tells her he reported his fall as an accident, swearing, "I will never breathe one word of this." "Good," she replies.
Backing up from where we left off last season, Walt calls Skyler shortly after Gus's death. At home, Walt gathers the bomb-making materials in a trash bag and stuffs it in his car trunk. Saul visits Skyler at the car wash and cryptically and solemnly warns her the police may call her about Ted. As Jesse walks closer, the laptop dies, then flies out of his hands and slams into the van. That night, Mike hotwires the police station security gate, allowing Walt and Jesse to park the cube van outside the evidence room. Inside the evidence room, metal objects fly off shelves and stick to the wall.
Afterwards he pours himself a drink, but stops short when he remembers the Lily of the Valley plant — which he then gets rid of as well. Walt cranks the dial to its max and the van topples over. The police inventory the evidence room, declaring Gus's laptop damaged. He notices that it had broken during the chaos and now reveals a list of secret bank accounts hidden beneath the broken frame.
Mike points his gun at Walt but Jesse stands between them.
Police officers rush outside but find the van empty. At Saul's office, Walt scolds Saul for giving Skyler 2,000 to pay off Ted's tax debt.
