Mike heads to the other room to inform Landry of their decision. Landry is relieved, but he can't even get his thank yous out before Mike grabs him by the collar and shoves him against a locker: "The next time you bring a gun to a job without telling me, I will stick it up your ass sideways." Landry seems to get it. Of course, he then scampers out to his car, sits down in the driver's seat, and picks up the jar with the tarantula in it. His expression is inscrutable at first, but the faintest hint of a smile crosses his face before the scene cuts away. I really don't like that smile.
In the cold light of day, Gomie and some other cop are surveying Mike at the park, and apparently have been for a while now, as he relaxed on a bench and watches his granddaughter play. Their view is partially obscured by trash can, but otherwise, nothing suspicious is happening. Eventually, Mike writes something on a piece of paper and places it underneath the can. "It's a dead drop," says Gomie, as he watches Mike leave the park with Kaylee. There's nobody in sight coming for the note, and Gomez worries it could be hours before anyone does. So he risks blowing his cover and makes a quick dash for the can. When he gets there, he finds the note, which reads as follows: "F**k You." All appropriate blurring provided by AMC, but the sentiment? That's pure Ehrmantraut.
Mike's now at home, scanning through the recordings from the tap from Hank's office. He fast-forwards through some pretty funny drudgery -- HR headaches and misfiling and "Miracle Whip is not mayonnaise, okay?" (Okay, that last part is not funny but deadly serious. Quit it with the Miracle Whip, everybody.) Mike finally gets to the part where Gomez explains how Mike made their tail. Even pros make mistakes, Hank says, helpfully. "We'll just have to wait it out and be there when he does." Mike sighs loudly at this and can't help nodding at the eventuality that, yes, he will slip up one time and that will be it.
At the Purple Palace, Skyler is visiting Marie and Holly and getting an update on the kids (Holly is an angel; Marie doesn't see much of Flynn). She asks Skyler how therapy is going, but that's pretty much a pretext for her to resume preaching the Gospel of Dave, the best shrink in the world. You think we'll be able to meet Dave before the series ends? Just in passing? Anyway, Skyler says that her (wholly fictitious) therapist, Peter, is pretty good! Marie says to "keep working through it," and Skyler starts to cry. It's to her credit that I'm not sure whether she's gaming Marie here or not; obviously, she's not telling Marie everything, and there's every chance she's trying to elicit the same sympathy Walt was with Hank last week; but I get the feeling she really might want to. "I need the kids to be safe," she says, but she also just wants to be with them. She hugs Holly closer. "Whatever I choose is wrong," she cries. Marie begs her sister to talk to her. "I know you think I have a big mouth sometimes, but if you felt you couldn't talk to me, I don't know what I'd do." Skyler wants to, but she's also scared to. Marie asks about "safe," and Skyler clarifies: "Safe from us." Marie reassures her she and Walt are not bad parents, but Skyler insists there are things, if Marie knew, she would never speak to her again. Marie of course thinks she knows what this is about, so she's like, "Try me," then finally, she takes the bull by the horns and tells Skyler she has to forgive herself for Ted. Skyler is taken aback; Walt TOLD her? Marie tries to make her feel better -- "You were having all these problems with Walt ... and Ted is a really good-looking man!" -- but Skyler's jaw is in the process of setting. Oblivious Marie is all, "Doesn't it feel good to get it off your chest?" Oh yeah. Skyler feels GREAT.
