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.
