Back at the lab, Walt and Mike sit across from each other, impassive as usual. Remember how last season it seemed like Mike was warming up to Walt, even had a certain respect for him? Tonight, Walter's become such an ass-tear for him that even that's gone from his face. Victor shows up, leading Jesse in at gunpoint and sitting him down next to Walt. He them stomps over and angrily kicks over a table of cooking materials. Mike kind of pulls him to the side and asks if Gale's gone. At this, Walt turns to look at Jesse, but Jesse won't take his eyes off the floor. That's as good as answered, just as Victor finally confirms it with words. "Oh, Jesus! Oh, shit!" Mike exclaims, while Walt's face reads the same. Actually, Walt's face carries an appropriate mix of relief, horror, guilt, and the seed of whatever self-justifying anger he's going to conjure up to make sure everybody knows this was his only choice. Mike gets from Victor that while Jesse wasn't seen by the neighbors, Victor was, though he claims that he passed for a typical rubbernecking neighbor. Mike stands silent for a moment, then figures he'd better get this over with and goes to make the call to Gus. It's such an effective dramatic device to have a guy as fearsome as Mike be so intimidated by Gus.
Time-lapse to tomorrow, where Skyler is answering her doorbell to Marie. HI, MARIE! Oh, it's been too long. She's there with a stack of Hank's latest medical bills and an abashed look on her face. She tries to tell Skyler that if this is in any way becoming a burden ... but Skyler won't let her think of it. So Marie then changes the subject to the tell-tale Aztec parked in the driveway. Obviously, that means Walt spent the night, which means he and Skyler are on the road to mending fences, and this is all happy news for Marie. And I'm guessing Marie could use some happy news. But Skyler doesn't have the first clue what she's talking about, until Marie actually points out the Aztec in the driveway. At which point Skyler gets concerned, because that shouldn't be. After Marie makes her retreat, Skyler tiptoes back to the bedrooms to make sure Flynn (who I can't keep calling Flynn as it's now been two seasons since he dropped that moniker, and I guess we're going with "Junior" now? Whatever.) is playing his music loud enough so he can't hear. Then she gets into the Aztec and drives it across a couple blocks, parking it on a cul-de-sac well away from sight of her home. She may be involved in helping Walt launder money, but Priority 1 still seems to be keeping the fallout out of her home. She gets out of the car and begins her walk of shame home, trying to look inconspicuous in the biggest, bulkiest, flowiest peach robe in New Mexico. Back home, Junior's out of his room but none the wiser.
