Back at the laundromat, Walt and his lady migrant workers are emerging from the lab. He's kind of hilariously trying to evince some kind of camaraderie with them but they just take his money and laugh at him quietly. They're met by Tyrus, who is as unamused as ever. He says something to the ladies in Spanish and starts to lead them away. Walt wants to know what's up, so Tyrus tells him he's taking them to a bus, which will return them to their native Honduras. Walt gets upset and says Gus should blame him, not the ladies. Gus should out the blame on HIM. Tyrus fixes Walt with a look: "He does."
At the same diner as before, Mike and Jesse once again eat in mostly silence. Gus arrives, and Mike kindly asks Jesse to give them a minute. As they cross paths, Gus tells Jesse, "We won't be too long." Whoa, respect! A dangerous weapon, when used correctly. Mike explains to Gus -- and connects the dots for us -- that the crew who jacked the truck in the cold open gave the meth to Tucker and Screamy. This wasn't about profit, but a message: "¿Estas listo para platicar?", which Mike roughly translates to "Ready to talk?" Mike asks for permission to hire a ten-man crew to hit the cartel back hard, but Gus refuses, which Mike expected. Keep the war cold for now. And as for the message? Gus says to set up a meeting, see what they have to say. Gus asks how Jesse did, but we cut outside to Jesse before we hear Mike's answer. As Gus leaves, he addresses Jesse again: "I hear you can handle yourself." That's all, really. But as he goes to walk past, Jesse asks Gus why he chose him. Gus: "I like to think I see things in people." Damn it, they are playing Jesse just right.
