Those who watched the suspenseful Breaking Bad season 5 midseason finale saw Walter White’s brother-in-law, DEA agent Hank Schrader (Dean Norris), piece together the identity of the mysterious maker of blue meth. As it turns out, Mr. White (Bryan Cranston) hasn’t been as thorough in tying up his loose ends as his aggressively protective demeanor leads everyone to believe, and a poorly placed piece of bathroom reading is just the beginning.

In total, Walter White has 22 loose ends threatening to bring him and his criminal empire to an end. Fortunately, there’s no need to scratch your head or count them off on your fingers, as the infographic below includes them all. From the most obvious to the most surprising, the infographic shows that Walter White is going to need to clean house when he returns for his final bow in spring 2013.

While Walter White may have once been the mild-mannered chemistry teacher wanting to provide for his family, five seasons of Breaking Bad have transformed him into a vengeful drug kingpin who many now fear. But will that fear cause them to turn on him? Because even though Hank knows that Walter White is Heisenberg, he still needs the evidence to prove it.

  1. you have the wrong picture for Gus Fring’s head emergency medical Guy, that is a picture of the Cartel’s Master Chemist

    • I was thinking the same thing. Otherwise flawless.

  2. kill hank first. just saying, if he doesnt wanna get caught hank needs to go NOW. of course, walter doesnt know hank knows. great show!

  3. I think that G.B. could be Gretchen Black, rather than Gale Boetticher. I think that when Hank approaches Walter about this, this will be the defense that Walter uses, and he may actually be telling the truth. However, I think this will make Hank begin to consider Walter as a suspect and he’ll start piecing things together. The Walt Whitman book could be nothing more than a plot device to make Hank start to think “What if Walter White was Heisenberg?”

    • no shot man, it says to my OTHER favorite WW

    • Gretchen’s surname isn’t black, it’s schwartz.

      • Schwartz means Black in German.

  4. I hope the writers see this, that way they can add all of this information to the show before it ends without tying them up.

  5. I think you may have missed a big one. Though Jesse and Mike wiped out the leaders and inner circle of the cartel during the big shootout, they certainly didn’t get everyone who attended Jesse’s demonstration cook in Mexico. The demonstration cook that was RECORDED. While I guess technically this could fall under the “Jesse” loose end, I think this is a huge one that deserves its own mention, and I really hope it reappears in the final eight episodes, either through rival product finally appearing on the market, or through some other means.

  6. You can’t count dead people as loose ends. This list just isn’t very good quality.

  7. Theres so many loose ends, this isn’t a very good list though. Half these people – if not more – are dead, good idea for this though, maybe make another one with only living people this time. I am so excited for the final 8!!!!!!

  8. So what happened?

  9. At this time I am going away to do my breakfast, when having
    my breakfast coming again to read further news.
