Ken 01 May 2010 Walt admits to having made a series of very poor decisions. Threatening a law enforcement officer's family is right up there at the top. That's what Walt did last week, by proxy, against his DEA agent brother-in-law, Hank. You can't go "just kidding" on that deal. Cops can't afford to NOT take such threats seriously. Was it just a ruse to lure Hank away or was it a threat to get him to back off the investigation of Heisenberg entirely? Hank has to assume the latter because that's the worse scenario. Someone knows his name, his wife, by name, and his cell number. Who knows what else they know? Hank knows he's dealing with an up and coming player in the drug field. Hank doesn't know his reach, only the quality of the "product" that Heisenberg is producing and has to assume the worst. Which just makes it all the worse for Walt? Then again, Walt's been sowing to the wind for 2 seasons and been in denial about the whirlwind of backlash that he's only now truly beginning to be buffered by. Walt may be able to outrun a pair of cousins with a literal axe to grind with him but Walt can't outrun a cop's radio.
