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.
Digging one big hole isn't too much quicker than two small holes.

Plus, he was digging at night, wasn't he?

Getting the hole started in the desert would be the hard part I think, softer as you get deeper probably, so probably quicker to do one hole and fill back in one hole.

He was digging during the day, he went back home and collapsed that night with that "talk" with Skyler.

Dunno. I think it's pretty hard. Might even be harder as you get deeper.

I'm sure Walt wishes he had dug 7 holes at this point.

Does it really matter that much that the AB took most of it? Not sure that 80 million would help life on the run any better than 10 million.

I keep remembering things I wanted to mention.

I really liked how they made it realistic as possible when Walt was backing out of the driveway with Skyler's car behind him. It's not easy to just push a car in "PARK" and he really floored it to force it out of the way. For a rusty, old, beat up pick-up truck he bought in the desert, it sure had some mad horsepower and good tires!

Hmmm. on second thought, I don't know what kind of car Skyler has, but I would have guessed it would have been a front-wheel drive car, so the front wheels/transmission should also have been locked-up (in "PARK") as well as the rear wheels that must have had the e-brake engaged. Unless it was a RWD car, then it works to have the rear wheels locked and the front wheels spinning freely. Either way, it was still an awesome scene.

Fine point.

But in most scenarios where someone discovers your pile of money, they don't actually leave you with any.

I don't think it was ever Walt's intent to go on the run with the money. His intention was for Skylar and the kids to have access to the money after he died.

Of course now that things have fallen apart like they have, of course, it's a different story.

10 million = 500 000 a year for the next 20 years
or 9615 every week for the next 20 years
all tax free

a family of 4 (soon to be 3) could EASILY live on that
even if it does include a newborn and a teen with cerebral palsy

Portugal, South Korea, Canada, New Zealand or even Belize would all be fine places to live
sure it would take some adjustment, but I think 9615 a week would ease the difficulty

I sure wouldn't have any problem with it
I'm single, I'm sure I could get by on a paltry 4 million
(3846 each week for the next 20 years)

I just got caught up after a mini-marathon the last few nights. All I can say is, WOW! This is just amazing television. As the series has progressed, I've wrestled with whether or not I should be rooting for Walt. Amazingly, I still found myself rooting for him, even at the end of this episode. I can't deny that I was relieved when he got on the van at the end and was spirited away to safety. Given all his recent actions, you would think I would want him to be apprehended, or perhaps even killed, but for some reason I don't. I think this is a testament to just how phenomenal both the writing and acting are on this show. In Walter White, they have created the perfect anti-hero.

Jack: "I just stole 80% of your money, but we're square? I need to know we're square."

For WHAT?

Then Walt says Jack still owes him Pinkman. Don't think that contract was supposed to be for $70 mil.

In my neck of the woods (far from any desert) as you dig deeper you get clay (harder to dig) and eventually bedrock.

I was surprised that nobody mentioned hydration for a coughing cancer-stricken middle-aged man. Where there any water bottles during the desert dig or the desert barrel roll?

I think it was mentioned during the thread for that episode.

Actually, he was not far off on his review. The only part he really missed was the phone call from Walt to Skyler. He had no way of knowing Walt's real intent. He saw it as "Walt calls his wife to ream her out and say hateful, awful things to her. I thought he was gonna kill the baby over the phone and have her listen, because that's a real power move."

It appears we've wasted 64 hours watching this show. Just watch the final ep or two, and enjoy the finish.

I watched the first and last episode of LOST, and really feel that I didn't miss much by not watching the rest in the middle.

Au contraire mon frère. As a whole, it's not in the same league as Breaking Bad, but the first few seasons of Lost were the most fun I've ever had watching TV. The rest of it was a little frustrating, but I still enjoyed it overall.

Yes, the first several years Lost was amazing. Desmond in the hatch with Mommas & Poppas playing was amazing stuff.

Huell was on Kimmel last night acting as "extra security" because Aaron Paul was on the episode. It was pretty funny.
