It's never outright stated in the show, but it's the only logical conclusion based on the characters we meet: nobody else is shown to have contact with both Gus and Saul. In chronological order: Gus is the distributor Walt first figures this out in S02E11- Mandala after observing his behaviour and knowing Saul's description of him and it's obviously the ...

"I know a guy who knows a guy", is just one of the witty lines that Saul uses every now and then. It does not mean Saul did not know much about Gus. It should not be forgotten that Saul was a "Criminal" lawyer and he must have been in contact with a lot of criminals in the town. A lot of contacts. A guy like this must have had a lot of information about the ...

the don has no info on gus' partner, so no leverage over him, which he has over gus--knowing who gus is. that's the reason gus lives.

I think the other answers are both partially correct, but what seems to be missing from them is a discussion of the narrative device that she inhabits within the overarching story. Walt's journey (descent from morality) begins with desperation. He truly convinced himself that he was doing this to save his family from financial ruin, especially with the new ...

Well, you are talking of a very idealistic situation. "she should have a comfortable and legal income already", so why do bad things to make more money ? Well, then the same thing can be said about Gus too, he has a restaurant chain which gives him enough white money. Walt too makes way beyond his initial target, but keeps trying for more. Let's ...

I don't think Lydia was risk-averse. Yes, she was very paranoid and high strung, but she wasn't above taking risks. She just made sure that the risks she took were calculated. We see this trait in action after Gus is killed and eleven of his men are arrested. Naturally, she's afraid these eleven will eventually implicate her. So she asks Mike to ...

This is the most truthful thing he's said to his wife in very long time. Altruistic acts are self-interested and there is no such thing as true altruism. Animals continually decide what best action to take to serve there own purposes. Failing to pass on his empire and as a father is unacceptable to Walter because he believes it one of his purposes. To ...

The absence of a clear explanation regarding the disposal of Crazy 8's body shows that the producers needed to fudge the script in an attempt to square the circle of Walt's character. Basically, he is a despicable person yet we must be kept sympathetic towards him in order to want to keep watching. An obvious plausibility issue in the Crazy 8 murder is that ...

He effectively became his own boss in Season 5, with Gus Fring eliminated. He grew more and more arrogant, but realised he didn't have the operation that Gus had, and thus couldn't hope to reach as many people as Gus did. As a result, he works with Lydia, an executive for Madrigal, the parent company of Gus' Los Pollos Hermanos. She takes care of ...

It's never explicitly answered, within the series. My expectation would be that, having found the meth lab, the authorities would then leave no stone unturned in pursuit of their money. Whether it was earned from Jack & his crew cooking/dealing meth or not, would've made little difference. Living people can contest the seizure, but dead men don't ...

TLDR: First sign of "darkness": Season 2, Episode 6. In it for himself: Sometime in Season 5. Full Answer: In my own opinion, the first glimpse I had of Walt's true nature was way back in Episode 6 of Season 2 - Peekaboo. In this episode, Gretchen Schwartz visits the White household and is thanked by Skyler for giving the money to Walt for his cancer ...

I think it is pretty definitive by the time of Buyout (S. 5 Ep. 6). From the sub-titles: Walter: Jesse, you asked me if I was in the meth business or the money business. Neither. I'm in the empire business.

@wbogacz It is not a new thing in fiction (or real life for that matter) to find police or bureaucratic officials miss the most obvious in pursuit of the most elegant solution in their investigations or their jobs in general. Yes, there is that.. @iandotkelly didn't he think he caught The Captain when he raided the cookhouse? Wasn't Jesse's ...

@DustinDavis May have been a hazard considering the fumes. If that thing kicks on (I assume it's using 110v or 220v) .. There is also 415 volt 3 phase which is common (in Australia at least) for industrial equipment. ..it will cause a spark (because it isn't intrinsically safe) which would cause an explosion. A little research from this ...
