Winning

The One Who Knocks

Cornered - Walt manages to alienate most of the people in his life this week, as he frightens Skyler with an admission of how deep he's into the business, and then offends Jesse by correctly guessing that last week's heroics were a sham. He also gets Junior to hate Skyler some more, and is really pretty racist with the nice ladies at the laundromat.

No Mas - Walt's lost his family, as Skyler (kinda) correctly guesses he's a drug dealer. With Jesse off drugs but still broken, and Flynn begging for someone to tell him why Dad had to move out, Walt takes a big step away from the meth game. Too bad the Patron Saint of Skulls has sent the Mexican Badass Coalition his way.
