Most absurd shootout ever, in the entire history of absurd shootouts!

Jack's crew: Superior firepower, numbers, cover and position.....
DEA agents: literally sitting ducks

Jack's crew being already portrayed as at least a somewhat competent force at the buried lab. Against an equally sized/armed force to boot. But none of them can hit either one of two completely uncovered, stationary targets. (AKA Hank or Gomez) pfffffffffffffft

Todd has already demonstrated he's the most expert pistol marksman on the planet headshotting a HELMETED target half the size of either Hank or Gomez ON THE DRAW!

Also Hank and Gomey are operating completely off book, and while yeah much of what they've heard and found may allow the entirety of law enforcement to crawl up Walt's arse and take up permanent residence, almost none of what they've recently discovered could be used to directly convict him due in no small part to just that simple fact.

In fact, the way they've been going about things lately, both of them could/would most likely be brought up on charges themselves under the right(wrong?) conditions.

Buying multiple tickets at the same time with the same number would make no sense, and look suspicious to the cashier. He'd have to buy them at different times/locations.

I thought it interesting that Hank identified himself as "police" instead of "DEA."

So what is Walt under arrest for? Driving on sacred Indian burial grounds?
Being that cops have taken away hundreds of dollars by "arresting" it for being drug money until and after being proven otherwise, I would think that Walt would lose the barrel stashes, even if he walked.

It really was that bad.

They could have at least filmed it so that Hank and Gomie had taken cover behind a vehicle as the badies were driving up.

Yeah that's a certainty, and in the grand scheme of things the most hurtful thing that can/will happen to Walt/The White family. Especially given Walt's supposedly terminal condition.

Walt and family call up the vacuum repair company and get out of town.

Aryans beat the info out of Sal, which leads to the repairman which leads them to the family.

Big gun is for the the Aryans, ricin for Lydia.
Mostly plausible but how do Walt and Jesse get away from the Aryans?

I am starting to agree that the final showdown will be with the Aryans and that is a little disappointing. The final showdown should have been Walt vs. Hank, but I guess that would have left tonight's as the final episode and honestly, I'd have been happy with it. Walt's greed took him down, Hank and Jesse get to put Heisenberg away.

I'm going to trust they have more twists for us.

Maybe all Gomie got was car wash keys.
Unless his car has a push button to start the car, then, as long as the engine is running and the fob is in your pocket, the car will beep whenever you get out of the car.

And there's a dilemma for Hank and Marie. Skylar and the kids are family. Do they take all the money to get Walt, when it will also hurt Skylar and the kids?

Well assuming the car wash doesn't get seized in the process they would have that to sustain them I guess.

Though honestly I doubt the final outcome takes much of any of this stuff into account given the way things are going.

It's called TCF. I use it often.

And by asking it here, it's being answered for thousands...err... millions of other readers who have the same question.

Not to mention I don't type Navajo.

What are Scott and Stonebridge?

Based on Marco's astute recommendation, I did google them. Looks like some other TV show. I read for a while but didn't understand the connection between them and the Breaking Bad characters.

I think you could see holes in the vehicle. Walt must have been in the Matrix to dodge all those bullets. It was a bad call. But I will overlook it because the show is pretty awesome generally.

Hopefully, the next episode is not a dragged out episode of a standoff where both Hank and Gomez die at the end but that they are killed off pretty early on in Episode 3. But I am afraid it will be the former. H&G were so ridiculous outgunned (and within close range) in the open mostly it should have taken even novice bad guys about 3 seconds to kill them.

It would have played out much better for me if they should have rolled up and taken them out right away just after Hank hung up.

Also, I was pretty sure the Nazi guys wanted one of them to reach for their ID just so that was one less guy without a finger on the trigger. That didn't care if they were legit DEA, cops, Feds, etc. IMO. They were going to start shooting.

Well done, pretty obvious really but people (me included) do like to pick.

I would like to expand on what was said earlier. This could have been a good ending. Everyone dies. Walt trying to save Hank and Jesse.

Saw this on FB - it sort of explains why no bullets hit.
