Having gotten away from Tuco, Walt and Jesse now have to get home and explain where they have been. Walt has a plan and they split up. He goes to a supermarket and takes off all of his clothes while walking around the aisles. He's hospitalized and claims to have no memory of where he's been for the last few days. Jesse returns to his house to clean out the basement and get rid of the RV. When the DEA also track him down, he claims that he's been shacked up with a prostitute for the weekend. The police don't believe him and think they know how to nail him: they bring in Tuco's uncle to identify him. With some of his problems now behind him, Walt is keen to start cooking again.
Did You Know?
When an IV is inserted, the needle is removed and only a plastic catheter remains. Walt would not have a needle left in his hand and would therefore be unable to reestablish IV access without new equipment. Also, the angle he inserted the needle would have pierced completely through the vein and the IV fluids would not flow through the tubing. See more
Well, which supermarket? Is it like a big one? Like a chain?
Don't get me wrong. I think it's just great that he's, y'know, back and he's feeling better. I just, I mean, he... naked. He was NAKED, naked in a supermarket! It wasn't Whole Foods, was it?
