Walter meets with Lydia to obtain the names of Mike's people. Lydia (correctly) suspects that Walter will dispose of her once he obtains the names unless she becomes useful in another way, so she partners with him to expand his distribution overseas to the Czech Republic. Walter takes the names to Todd's uncle, who has ties with neo-Nazi gangs operating in the prisons. The nine prisoners and Mike's lawyer, including at least one ready to flip for Hank, are killed. Walter's meth production runs profitably and uninhibited. Skyler makes another effort to convince Walter to give up meth production, and Walter, shaken by his murder of Mike and seeing an opportunity to reunite his family, relents. Walter pays back Jesse's cut of the methylamine sale, and apparently gives up on meth production for good. The Whites' children move back in, and the family seems to be in repair. During a lunch by the pool, Hank skims through Walter's copy of Leaves of Grass, left in the bathroom. A note from Gale to Walter on the inside cover is addressed to "my other W. W." Hank realizes that this new W. W. is most likely Walter White.
