    No. He will probably offer to take the kids again... or just act really awkward.

    Walt will figure it out.

    It's not about the money any more for Walt hell you never even see him enjoy any of it even a nice meal. He's getting off on the power and control it is something that has built up in him for 50 years.

    It is amazing how he makes the decision to end somebody's life with such ease and calm. He's like Micheal Corleone, remember when Micheal was not even involved in his dad's business and how they laughed when he had the idea to kill Solozzo and that cop? Then he starts ordering the killing of people like he's ordering an ice cream cone.

    Walt controls a whole empire how does a guy just go back to a normal boring life?

    I went on imbd and looked at the list of every cast member in the show and nobody has the initials GB except Gayle Boetticher.

    The book looks like an old copy so if the print date is from 25 years ago he could argue that an old college friend gave it to him. How could Hank disprove that?

    Hank always underestimates Walt so maybe nothing come from it. What is the familiar line? "I didn't know Walt had it in him."

    Of course we could ask the question why Walt warned hank about being a target in the first place since Hank was closing in on the whole operation.

    Before this season I've been on Walt's side of things. I've agreed with his perspective for the most part, and sympathized with his struggles with his family. Now I'm starting to think that he's just gone off the deep end. He has had multiple chances to get away, and had to just keep pushing it until he left a trail. I'm excited to see the final half of the final season, especially after that cliff hanger of an ending.

    Undoubtedly Walt became Dr. Frankenstein. There is no mistaking the point they made in showing that he was completely disillusioned in how much power he thinks he has, and for all his cleverness, how naive he is to think he is invincible and how much danger he put his family in.

    I'll stress again how lazy it seemed for a show that typically does its' reveals in such a clever manner that a lightbulb would simply go off in Hank's head about WW? That was some weak sauce for this show. Hopefully there is another shoe to fall.
    This is the same show that had two planes crashing over Walt's house as a culmination of dreamy foreshadowing in a previous season. Give us more than Hank on a toilet..

    I have never been on Walt's side of things but kudos to this show to get everyday normal good people to sympathize with a Meth manufacturer.

    I think everyone can relate to being kicked around or down and out and saying **** it I'm gonna do whatever it takes to get mine. But of course most or hopefully all of us here would never go the extreme lengths of WW.

    Fascinating show.

    There's no way Hank doesn't have Walt caught now. He will question himself at first. Then it will all make sense.

    Hank still believes Heisenberg is out there, and he thought Gale to be the understudy. Hank knows that book came from Gale and it was initialed to WW.

    How about all the disappearances by Walt? The second cell phone, the lab equipment that went "missing" from his chemistry lab", Skyler acting extremely weird and wanting the kids to stay with Hank and Marie?

    Everything becomes crystal clear to Hank.

    Hank has also been told point blank to discontinue the Fring investigation which he immediately disobeyed in going after Mike's lawyer. Going after Walt furthers that disobedience.
    Hank may not have a legal basis to pursue Walt if he is no longer a Fed.
    They showed that scene of Hank getting scolded for a reason. That shoe has yet to fall..
