The main narrative of this episode features Mike taking Jesse on a road trip. Jesse assumes he will likely be buried in a desert hole. He grips his car keys, his only weapon. Suspense builds as Mike pulls into a classic western scene: a ramshackle corral, a creaking windmill, and endless desert with nobody in sight. The camera pans across the scenery. Mike grabs a shovel from the back of his car, but instead of killing Jesse, he digs up money. He does this at six different locations. Near the end of their trip, Jesse starts to perceive himself as a guard who saved the money from shotgun armed robbers. The audience finds out that Jesse has been set up by Gus. We still don’t know the full plan.
There’s also a great dinner scene between Hank and Walt. Hank talks about how Gale was a true genius and Walt can’t stand to have Gale be thought of as Heisenburg. Walt tells Hank that the real Heisenburg could still be out there. Gale was just a student.
