From there you are going to need to watch the rest of the show. WHY DIDN'T I SEE!" A subreddit for fans and critics of the hit television series Breaking Bad on AMC. Edit: Sorry if this spoiled anything for you but in fairness I put that warning at the top and you did ask for it. Woah. In a flash forward from last season (the first half of season five, to be exact), we saw Walt (Bryan Cranston) one year in the future, celebrating his birthday at Denny's. He's also staring at Walt for most of the dinner that Skyler walks into the pool. No. After a bit of small talk, Walt asks Hank if he knows anything about the tracker. Hope this answers your question. He simply couldn't even imagine that his geeky book-smart brother-in-law would be capable of being Heisenberg. We see Walt return to his home, but its boarded up and fenced off its completely abandoned. Ive watched all the episodes many times now and Hank didnt realize that walt was Heisenberg until her read Gale's book. To make matters worse, Walts cancer is back and its when hes throwing up in the bathroom that he notices his Leaves of Grass book is missing. Related: In retrospect I'm sure he struck himself for his head like "The clues were glaring me in the face! To him it was just as probable as the claim that it's possible to cross the speed of light. 8 ends with the camera focused on hank after he realized. Hes disgusted by it. At the very end of s5e8 Hank and Marie are at Walt's house for a lunch or barbecue or whatever and the general feel of the scene is pretty happy and light. So that's how they accounted for the money. I mean, who makes that much money gambling in that short of a time? Walt responds by saying, If thats true, if you dont know who I am, then maybe your best course would be to tread lightly.. Not sure why the down votes, but that's it. The DEA finds the gas mask used for cooking in the desert. Walt begins to worry that Hank has figured out his true identity. Didn't Walt steal that book from Gale's file that Hank had? That happens in the 8th ep. It gets traced to Walt's classroom and Hank does inventory. Now, Hank is treading carefully (however, not without nearly suffering a heart attack on the drive home), mainly from the shock of the situation. Plus, just when Walt thinks he got rid of Lydia (Laura Fraser), she returns. He just had a GIGANT blind spot for Walt. Exactly. Eh there was also the episode in the first season (forget which, sorry). Is there any specific event where Hank begins to think Walt is Heisenberg? He saw Walt as the guy in the 1st episode who was afraid to hold a pistol. Jesse wants to get rid of the cash, but giving away $5 million isnt as easy as it seems. I'm up to s5e4 and Hank is ripping on Walt for buying the cars and giving them a hard time about the car wash. I noticed that too. Now that Walt's brother-in-law knows his true identity, he faces the biggest threat of his life. Hank jokes about people possibly getting suspicious of Walt. In the August 11 season premiere of Breaking Bad, we pick back up on that flash-forward. Once he gets home, Hank buys some time, takes off of work, and starts building a case at home before he confronts Walt with what he knows. Walt also notes that even if Hank wanted to accuse him of being Heisenberg, hed never see the inside of a jail cell because hell likely be dead in six months or less (thanks to the cancer).
