Sure, but not in a storage unit or bank deposit box.

1. If they were going to do that, they should have shown it to us by now. That would not be a good turn of events given how the show has been done so far.

2. It would be useless to her now in any great quantities. She can't clean it and any time she tries to use it would be an issue. She might get by with a couple of thousand here and there but even if she had $10 million, she would live at poverty level because of scrutiny (at least for a few years).

Personal attacks ??? The whole point I made was that it's because we like the show that we pay so much attention to it.

When Marie told Skyler that she had to tell Walt Jr. I was so hoping Walt would walk into the car wash just before Skyler started. I would have loved to have seen the look on Marie's face in that scene. However, given the fact that Marie said she'd talked to Hank three hours ago, and the time it clearly took for the AB to dig up the money, bury the bodies, and then for Walt to roll the barrell across the desert and buy the truck, I knew that wasn't going to be possible.

If you remember, Walt was mostly broke after Skyler gave a good chunk of his money to Ted Beneke. So most of the money he and Jesse made when cooking together was gone. All the money in the storage unit (barrels) was from when Walt and Todd were cooking together in the tented houses. Jesse's only profit from that was his share of the methylamine sale.

During that scene, my comment was "Wouldn't it be bad if Walt walked in the door right now?"

I still don't know if Marie could actually hear the phone call. I think not but her reaction seemed as if she did. I don't think Skylars words and reaction were enough.

I think the answering machine picked up the call and I assumed then the speaker on the answering machine was playing the call for all in the house to hear. I guess it depends on what kind of answering machine it was, but that was my take on the scene.

Then why would Skyler hold the phone to her ear if the answering machine speaker was on?

The agent held some device next to the phone, either to record the call or broadcast it for all to hear or both, wasn't clear on that.

Because the answering machine doesn't have a microphone, and that's how you hold a phone when you're talking into it.

Considering how much talking she did, she really didn't need a mike...

I totally agree. It seemed like some type of specialized "kidnapper is on the phone" microphone (only) so that they could also hear the call.

It was just the standard induction coil to pick up (tap) the phone conversation without actually tapping into the phone line itself. They've been around for decades. They usually have a suction cup. They may have been playing it out loud or not (due to potential feedback), but it was certainly recorded.

This is the final season of BREAKING BAD.

Hank would be alive, possibly providing code red certified security for Saul Goodman, if not for Master Disquietude tossing mad stacks. I'm thinking the beaming of blueberry pies and guts into outer space was a foreshadow.

Even a fish can stay out of trouble if it keeps his mouth shut.

Hank counted a chicken before it hatched and it flew the coop.

Walt was foolish for putting all his eggs in one basket. Had he buried the barrels in pits of two it would not have required much more digging and the advantages are obvious.

His point about burying the barrels in two holes is pretty astute. Heck, just have the holes 20 paces apart and he's pretty safe.

On my third or fourth rewatch now.

If you watch the scene you can clearly see Marie does NOT react to Walt on the phone saying "toe the line or you'll end up just like Hank". It's only when Skyler says "what happened to Hank" that Marie jumps up because Skyler said his name. As was said before, she gets from Skyler's reaction that Hank is dead.

Yeah, I just re-watched as well and was going to post the same thing. Also, I'm pretty sure the detective was just holding up his cell phone to record the conversation, it wasn't any kind of special phone tapping (or speakerphone-like) equipment.

And I wanted to mention this before, but at the top of the show when Hank was shot, he starts crawling towards Gomie's shotgun in pretty much the same manner as he did when he was shot by the twins, and crawling towards the gun and bullet on the ground.

And I found it remarkable how quickly after Hank was shot that a mortified and grieving Walt turned right back into Heisenberg in order to deal with Jesse.

Oh, and the stack of cash he paid for the truck was a strap of $100 bills.. so it was most likely $10k. It was a pretty fat stack, so it could have been $20k, but it was just one "strap". So perhaps they took some artistic license and it wasn't 100 bills as is standard for strapped cash like that.

Sure bury the barrels in two holes. Spend more countless hours digging in the sun, in the sand/dirt and such.

I would have thought bury some and then hide some and then, be really smart and hide a couple somewhere else. Spread it out so that you know not all of it will be touched.

That however would take time and some planning.

well, innocent or not, the car wash was bought with illegal drug money. It has to be confiscated, I would think. I also think that accounting bloodhounds would sniff out any scheme Skyler can cook up to hide money. :shrug:

At least Walt learned to roll the barrel instead of lifting it
