Night falls on Albuquerque. Gomez sees Walt wandering the halls and asks if there's any news (there's not). In the background, Leonel is unconscious in his hospital bed. Walt fishes for information on who this guy and his brother are. Gomez says they don't know, but they will eventually. This, naturally, concerns Walt. As does this question he asks Gomez: "Do you think there could be others?" Gomez assures him that "nobody's getting to Hank." Which is hilarious in that it's not remotely why Walt was asking. "I'd love to walk in there and shoot that bastard right in the head," Gomez rages. "Me too," says Walt, with way more convincing badassery. I wondered at this point whether Walt would try to manipulate Gomez into doing just that. After all, what does Walt care if Gomez ruins his life/career? One less DEA agent, right? But he just keeps staring ahead. Gomez gets a phone call and announces to all that food's here. "Hey," he asks Walt, "you like [El Pollo Knockoffo]?" Gomez says the owner is "a big booster for the DEA" and he brought enough chicken to feed every officer in the building. And he brought it over personally! Walt looks like the dividing walls in his double life just came crashing down. Which they have.
After the break Walt and Flynn are enjoying the delicious chicken, while Skyler and Marie are chatting with "Mr. Fring." Skyler tells Walt Gus just said he's offering a $10,000 reward for any information about Hank's shooting. It's interesting, with as much as Skyler knows about Walt's business, to see her dealing with Gus, who she has NO idea is the local kingpin. Walt fixes his side eye on Gus as the Chicken Man serves up country-fried horseshit to Marie about Hank and the "thin blue line." Merkert, too, wants to shake his hand, which is even more perverse than Skyler not knowing. Gus tells the room a story about the time he met Hank, after he was a sponsor for the Agency's Fun Run. Gus makes special mention to Walt about how Hank was collecting money for Walt's cancer treatments at the time, and gosh, he sure hopes things have improved on that front. Aaaaand now it's Walt's turn to be completely in the dark. "Things have improved, yes." Says Walt, choking the words out. Gus then takes his leave, but not before once again accepting the accolades of Walt's grateful family.
