After the break, we return to find Walt in the familiar position of preparing for a CAT scan. His periodic cancer screening, we assume. It's the last we see of it for the entire episode, which has to make you wonder. Particularly in light of all that coughing in the season premiere. And the change of heart we're about to see. It would make sense, of course. A cancer diagnosis spurred Walt to get into the business -- why couldn't a cancer relapse spur him to get out? But I'm getting ahead of myself. [Note: There's also a shot of the metal paper towel dispense that Walt beat the crap out of back in Season 2's "4 Days Out."]
Next thing we see is a hand holding a cigarette burning down to the filter. Oh, Jesse, don't fall asleep smoking. That's how people die! The burning of his fingers wakes him up, just in time to hear a knock at the door. Jesse peeks out the window and looks freaked. He leaves the room, comes back, and answers the door. It's Walt. It's awkward. Walt says he tried to call, but Jesse says all his phones have either been thrown away or unplugged. But Walt was in the neighborhood, so... Jesse warily invites him in, and Walt can't help but looking smug at the bong on the table; Jesse hides it behind a chair.
He says Saul told him what Walt did about the Nine, so he guesses they don't have to worry anymore. Walt assures Jesse there was no other option, which has to sound awfully familiar to Jesse by now. Preemptively, he tells Walt he's not coming back, and Walt knows. So why's he here? Walt says he saw a Bounder the other day. Same model as their old RV. He starts to reminisce about what a heap that thing was. Jesse starts walking down memory lane too, about all the ways they had to beg and cajole that RV not to break down on them. Or the time they ran out of gas in the middle of the desert. Jesse's like, "We had money. Why didn't we get something new? Why'd we have to have the world's shittiest RV?" Walt: "Inertia, I guess." Boy, that says a mouthful.
