Here's another question like the Lydia one GD posted about that needs help justifying:
Why does Uncle Jack let Walt go in the first place? And leaving him with a barrel of cash too? You're already two murders in, seriously what's one more?
You kill Walt too, and there's no paper trail to you whatsoever, assuming your raiding of Hank's house is successful, which it was in the next episode.
Still, as a massive BB fan, I'm willing to let that decision slide as just a bad decision on Jack's part. Which I think is also plausible that he could realistically make that mistake of letting Walter come out of that desert alive. I guess Jack does say that "Todd thinks very highly of you" and that's why he's letting him walk. Or maybe Jack thought (incorrectly) that Walter would be a good consultant if they ran into cooking problems somewhere down the road.
Still, murdering Walter at To'hajilee and throwing him in that grave too was clearly the only choice, if I'm Jack in that spot.
Hmmm, proof-reading this post just now, I sort of come off as a sociopath, but really though, I'm just wondering if this is something of a plot blunder?
Full disclosure: I'm obviously a huge fan of the show if this is the first post of mine from this thread if you are reading.

Yea I agree. For me season two dragged. Four was my favorite and I felt a bit of a drop off with season 5. But I'm speaking purely from an entertainment standpoint, which could be argued is the most important thing in any TV show. The slow pacing was tough at times from that perspective, but necessary to portray that real life cop work is not Cowboys and Indians. And David Simon and Ed Burns were all about that. It's alienating to most for sure, but cool also if your goal in finding a show is as much realism as possible.
I loved the Wire when I first saw it, but I do sympathize with people who just couldn't get into it... it really is tough sledding for long stretches.
I do love though what a great study of an American city it is. So much depth in terms of helping me understand the very real problems Baltimore was/is facing. That was extremely educational and done in a very cool way.
