    This.
    Remember, from where we are sitting the shoot out is not yet over.

    I'm a little concerned that Hank and Gomie might be wearing bullet proof vests, though. They showed us that Saul was wearing one for a reason, and that reason is usually some sort of foreshadowing.

    This is an astute observation.

    On another point, it will be important dramatically for Walt to see that Hank is dead - and that he set events in motion that resulted in the death.

    IMO this plan was Hank's not Jessie's. Jessie might have come up with the idea to use Walt's money to get to him....but the details are ALL Hank. Hank came up with the brains, the fake barrell, and put Jessie up to making the phone call.

    It's yet to be known if Hank actually does die here, but Hank set these events in motion.

    I get that, but it's my opinion that Hank's got no chance of getting out alive. No one survives a foreshadowing phone call like that one. #Live4Ever

    Perhaps it'll end up looking like the faked image of Jesse with his brains blown out.

    Though I suspect with the guns and the range and such that most of the brains would still be in his head. Unless Gomie turns the shotgun on Hank and shoots him close-range.

    Gomie breaks bad big time. :up:

    I believe the phone call pretty much sealed poor Hank's fate. If Hank were going to walk away from this, then why the phone call to Marie?

    The phone call to Marie is going to be the nail in Walt's coffin. We are assuming that Gomez and Hank were still working off the grid, correct? So, if not for that phone call, it appears that no one would know where Gomez and Hank had gone. If Walt is able to stop the nazis, and after they kill Gomez and Hank there is no reason to believe he couldn't stop them, they could have easily given them the barrel treatment and they would have just disappeared, like all the others.

    But now Marie knows. Marie knows who Hank was with and there is no possible out for him this time.

    Maybe...

    I don't think they have vests on, but they might.

    Even if they do, however, they get shot and if TV and movies taught me anything, you get shot with a vest on and you are winded for 5-10 minutes and pretty incapacitated. And your gun goes flying off, out of reach.

    I would hope that the bad guys quickly check if the downed DEA agents are dead and if not, put one between their eyes.

    For those wondering about the van, remember that Saul's guys got the van and loaded it up with the money. I thought that when Walt picked it up from them, he asked them about making sure there was no GPS and they ensured him that there wasn't any. This is right before the "close enough" statement about if they took any money.

    So Walt should have realized that the van didn't really have GPS but the picture of the open money barrel was too great of a setup that he got fooled.

    The first guy to shoot had an AA-12 fully automatic shotgun with iron sights. He took careful aim and began firing, somehow missing. Unknown if he was shooting buckshot or slugs, but oh well.

    Even discarding the first volleys of the firefight, a vehicle will not stop the rifle fire from the two AR-15's and the one BAR. The engine will provide some cover, but not the rest of the vehicle.

    On the opposite side of the coin, the vehicle doors the AB were using wouldn't stop even the pistol rounds being fired by Hank.

    But using false cover is as much Hollywood as is unlimited ammunition from a single magazine, and I'm used to it. :)

    Ok - I wasn't paying /that/ much attention...but they did make a pretty big deal about how deliberately he fired.

    AA-12 has a 100m effective range.

    If Hank survives I can't see how the story continues to the point of the Flash Forward (but they've resolved stuff like this before).

    Marie knows what? Marie knows no more than she has for this whole season.

    She knows that Hank called her and said he got Walt. But that means nothing to Marie without Hank.

    If hank goes missing Marie knows that Walt was the last known person that was with him. And that he was handcuffed.

    "Break to head" or "Break for head"?
