I think Skyler's behaviour is perfectly understandable if you consider the developing of her relationship with Walt, whose behaviour is becoming more and more secretive day after day. If at first the erratic mood of Walter was interpreted by Skyler and the closest members of the family by a more than comprehensible way to cope with the terrible news of the ...

Walt took the second job to add another source of income for his family. Do not forget that Skyler was pregnant at that time, and that meant Walt's family was going to expand. Obviously, Walt did not make much, through his primary job of a High school teacher. So with a wife, disabled son and an upcoming baby, and Walt being the sole bread winner, his choice ...

Hector killed Max on Don Eladio's (non vocal) orders, because he felt insulted. Gus and Max, the Don felt, had manipulated him, through his minons, into having the meeting. By supposedly selling drugs, in his territory, to his men. While Gus and Max may really have gave it away instead of selling it, it doesn't matter to someone like the Don. And by going ...

Yes, Don Eladio Vuente is the head of the Ciudad Juárez Cartel. His title of Don says it all, implying royalty. But Gus' revenge was mainly personal, as Eladio was the one that had his friend killed right in front of him a long time ago. It was just very very thorough because if it wasn't, any living members of the cartel would have sought revenge.

I don't think that Hank's interest for rocks and minerals has a particularly deep meaning (but that's just my opinion). If I remember correctly, in one of the interviews of the Breaking Bad's cast contained in the BluRay version of the TV Series (might have been Hank's or Vince Gilligan's), it was stated that the choice of rocks was considered appropriate ...

I recall Gale explaining to Walter: I'm definitely a libertarian. Consenting adults want what they want and if I'm not supplying it they will get it somewhere else. At least with me they're getting exactly what they pay for; no added toxins or impurities. I think it's also useful to consider the purity of meth. he could make, which was probably matched ...

Firstly, I've only just finished season 3, and whilst it looks like he probably killed Gale, the tears in his eyes, the hesitation and the camera work made it look like it could be ambiguous. To me, it looked like he started moving the gun away from Gale's head before he shot. That aside, he did what he had to do in order to save Walter. Walter was all ...

Walt was a very proud and stubborn man, and refused help from anyone. Gretchen and Elliott offered to pay for his cancer treatment, but his pride wouldn't allow him to accept their offer. Even when his own son set up a fund raising website, Walt couldn't accept the money, explaining to Skyler that "It's charity!". So it is likely then that he also wouldn't ...

It's important to remember the events that had just led up to that. Jane was forcing herself between Walt and Jesse. She threatened and blackmailed Walt to get Jesse's share of the money back. This was money that Walt did not feel Jesse was in a state he could receive it. And to top it all off, Jane and Jesse were planning on leaving the next day. I ...

Walter White is a man who will go to any extent to save his family. To survive his family he needs to cook Meth and for that he needs Jesse. And Jesse wanted/thought to quit cooking meth after he became intimate with Jane. So Jane is a threat for Walter. Note that : Walter at first was compelled to save Jane but he didn't save her.

Because she was a bad influence for Jesse. Walter needed Jesse to cook. Walt considers saving Jane, but ultimately lets her die, knowing that her death would help him gain control over Jesse as a result, and possibly stop Jesse from using drugs. Read more from this article.

To my knowledge the series never really touches on this. The link that @Walt provided above is informative but I don't think there is much more specific information to be had. One of the great things about Breaking Bad are all of the back stories of the characters that we can only speculate on. This is why Better Call Saul is so compelling. To answer the ...

They ditched their clothing and the fancy car because they needed to get past the border without creating a bunch of attention. They could not just walk up to the man who was transporting non-US citizens wearing luxury suits plus the nice car. Once they look like the other illegal immigrants, they are able to pass into the USA and progress with their ...

Here's my take on it: Walter wanted to die He knew it was a matter of time until the police gets to him, and also he didn't have a lot of time left due to his illness. This is clear from the scene where he hands over the gun to Jesse and basically asks Jesse to shoot him. Having realized that, Jesse avoids shooting Walter and says "do it yourself". He ...

Lydia was a creature of habit. She always sat at the same table, always made the same order, and always added stevia to her drink. That is the only thing that enabled Walt to get to her - in fact, she made it easy for him.

Mike kills Leonel Salamanca (S03E08, I See You) via lethal injection (on orders from Gus Fring) while he's recovering in the ICU following the shootout with Hank Schrader. He was a threat to inform to the DEA on Gus and Walt, but he was unarmed and was definitely not an imminent threat to Mike at the time of the killing.

In S02E13, Jane's father reports that Jane was born on April 4, 1982. In S03E01, the TV news reports that Jane was 26 years old. Assuming these are are correct and we are using the standard US convention of reporting ages, then Jane's death took place some time between April 4th, 2008 and April 3rd, 2009. In S05E08, one character said, "I mean, whacking bin ...
