Skyler resists, holding a knife to defend herself. Skyler and Walt fight over the weapon, with Walt Jr. defending his mother and eventually calling the police on his father. Walt escapes with Holly. After taking full responsibility for the meth business during a call to Skyler that is monitored by the police, he leaves Holly at a fire station and assumes a new identity through Saul's contact. After being beaten and tortured for information, Jesse is forced by Todd to help him cook meth when he sees a picture of Andrea and Brock in the lab.
5x15 Granite State aired: Sunday Sep 22, 2013
Walt is relocated to a cabin in New Hampshire. After being interrogated by the DEA, Skyler is threatened by Todd not to talk about Lydia. Jesse tries to escape from the Aryan Brotherhood's compound, but is caught. He's then held bound and gagged and taken to Andrea's house in a van to witness Todd killing her. Walt calls Walter Jr, but Walter Jr. gets enraged and hangs up the phone after telling his father that he should just die. Walt then calls the DEA to turn himself in. While sitting at the bar, Walt watches Charlie Rose interview Elliott and Gretchen; both deny Walt has any serious claim to or history with Gray Matter. The police encircle the bar, but he has already left.
5x16 Felina aired: Sunday Sep 29, 2013
Walt locates Gretchen and Elliott and gives them the money to give to Walt Jr. when he turns 18, threatening that he has hired hitmen who will kill them should they fail to do so. He then crashes a meeting between Lydia and Todd, putting the ricin in Lydia's stevia. He travels to Skyler's new apartment and admits he continued his pursuits in meth production for his own satisfaction and ego, rather than for the benefit of his family as he had always asserted. He then drives to the Aryan Brotherhood's headquarters with the M60 machine gun which he has jury rigged in the trunk. When Jack brings Jesse in from cooking to show him to Walter, Walt tackles Jesse to the ground and triggers the M60, which wounds Walt and kills the Aryan Brotherhood members, except for Todd, whom Jesse strangles to death, and Jack, whom Walt finishes. Jesse refuses to kill Walt, though Walt asks him to. Lydia calls Todd, not knowing he has just been killed, and Walt answers Todd's cell phone, telling her within earshot of Jesse that she has been poisoned by the ricin he had placed in her stevia during their impromptu meeting that morning. Jesse climbs into his car and drives away, simultaneously laughing and crying with joy and relief. Walt spends his final moments in the meth lab, taking one last nostalgic look around before collapsing and dying. Police find his body in the lab moments later.
