Super-cop Hank is onto Walt, Jessie wants to take the money and run, Mike is taking a “nap” down by the river, and Skyler is not-so-quietly rooting for Walt’s cancer to return and free her from the grim prison their marriage has become.

There’s a 6.5 percent ABV India Black Ale called Heisenberg’s Dark, which Rice says has a roasty malt profile and lovely citrus punch courtesy of Australian Galaxy hops.
