“Breaking Bad” season 6 aired “Buried” Sunday night and viewers saw Walt take all his money out of the storage facility and bury it in the desert. With “Buried,”as the title of the episode, this can be applied to a few things that happened on Sunday night's show. CBS News on Aug. 19, cites how this episode continued with the hard hitting phrase from Walt to Hank last week, “Tread lightly.”
The garage door opens and closes like a curtain on stage as Walt and Hank have their reveal meeting. Hank punches him and tells him he knows everything and Walt, who doesn't deny it, plays with words that wouldn't incriminate him. “I swear to God” I only I only run a carwash, which for the time being is true, since Walt backed out of the meth making business, this where it left off last week and picked up again this week. Walt tells Hank basically to bury what he thinks he knows.
After their meeting Hank and Walt start the race to get to Skyler, Hank gets Skyler to meet him at a dinner and he takes the reigns. He wants Skyler's confession and he wants it now, he also makes promises to keep her safe from the consequences of the law while she helps him pin Walt with the meth cooking business. He offers to basically bury anything that she had to do with Walt's meth business from the long arm of the long.
You can see the selfishness in Hank as he prods Skyler for information falling just short of a demand. She got his number big time and made the smart move of wanting a lawyer, which Hank wasn't about to let happen. Again he was out to save his own skin because the entire time he led a task force to find the meth dealer, the criminal he was looking for was under his own nose, his brother-in-law Walt. Again, Walt's criminal activity was buried from Hank in almost plain sight!
Hank tells his wife Marie, who is urging him to go into work and take-down Walt, that the day he turns Walt in is the last day of his career. This is because Walt was right under his nose and it is his brother-in-law, basically saying Hank isn't very good at his job. Will Hank keep what he knows buried to keep his job?
When Walt and Hank are talking there's no mistaking hatred in both men's eyes for each other, but when Goodman suggests sending Hank to “Belize,” the same place Mike went, Walt's indignant. He can't fathom killing Hank because, “He's family.”
When it looks like Hank doesn't have anything without Skyler's help and Skyler is clearly on the side of her husband, it seems the couple may escape the law. Then Jesse, who has lost his marbles, is sitting at the police station in a vegetated state getting questions shot at him about the massive amount of money he had with him and that he was throwing out of his vehicle's window.
Will Jesse be the key to Hank getting Walt? Or will he rally his senses and push his melt-down to a later date and out of eyesight of the cops? Hank told Skyler that Walt's cancer is back, which leads to a talk between the husband and wife. Walt's main concern during their cancer talk is that he does not want Skyler to give up the money.
With only six episodes to go will fans be seeing Walt's funeral, the start of his prison time, or will he and Skyler go somewhere to start over as very rich people?
The flash-forward in the first episode of the series shows Walt with hair back at a dilapadated house that was once their beautiful home. It looks as if it was seized as part of a bust, with the chain-link fence surrounding the premises.
Walt is picking up a vile of something white, he had it tapped behind a light socket in the master bedroom. Is this DNA to frame someone or is this his pure-grade meth that he'll analyze for his recipe to go back to cooking? The possibilities of "Breaking Bad's" jump off point are vast.
