    Walt is concerned with his and Jesse's security after Gus's show of force by killing Victor and then buys an unlicensed revolver from one of Saul's contacts which makes it untraceable in case he has to use it. Jesse embraces hedonism via constant partying with a new sound system embracing the fact that his days may be numbered. Skyler begins surveillance on the car wash and offers a bid of price to the owner (Walt's former employer) but insists that if Walter wants to buy it from him it must be 10 million dollars. Hank shows a bit of two sides as he becomes obsessed with minerals and begins to put himself through physical therapy better but is still nasty and unkind to Marie. Clearly something is going to explode here at some point between them, all she's trying to do is help and he just shoots her down every time. Walt learns that he will never see Gus again after meeting Victor's replacement and after trying to make an alliance with Mike (trying to win him over by revealing Mike's own expandability to someone like Gus) resulting in a bar fight he learns that it may be more difficult to confront Gus head on. Andrea tries to understand an amount of money left by Jesse at her house after her brother's two murderers were killed and when the partying finally stops he finally has to consciously face the fact that his life is shorter even though Walt won them their job back supposedly. Great episode, hopefully something will change in the next few episodes that will utterly shake BB up to a new level since the slogan for this season is "Walt is the trouble" so I can't wait for that to happen now that we've got a solid base of drama to build on.
