I ain't watching no shark jump.
Are you joking? Gus's death opens up a lot more doors than it closes.
Let's take a look:
MWilke wrote:1. Gus's car is still in the hospital parking lot and hospitals have security cameras noticing Jesse Pinkman hanging around for days. Hank is going to take notice here.
CONTRIVED - why would Hank be checking the hospital security tapes?
MWilke wrote:2. Gus could not be killed by Don Eladio because of how well-connected he is in Chile. Now the entire cartel is wiped out and there for the taking.
CONTRIVED - Walt doesn't need the money. The only thing that's kept him going is his safety/the safety of his family
MWilke wrote:3. Now that the majority of Walt's cash is in the carwash and he has no capital to be the 'Scarface' you see him as right now. Does he just go back to the register selling air fresheners?
Yes, that's all he wants (I don't see him as 'Scarface', I expressed my discomfort at him becoming 'Scarface')
MWilke wrote:4. Jesse is probably going to eventually put it together that it was Walt who poisoned Brock.
CONTRIVED - Really? How? And even if he does, so what? Even Jesse will see with hindsight it was for the best. At the end of the day, he trusts Walt implicitly.
MWilke wrote:5. It's still not entirely clear whether or not Hank, while putting the pieces together on Gus, has no suspicion of Walt. This cat and mouse situation will probably be the central focus of the last 16 episodes. This is where it started and this is probably how it has to end.

He tripped and smacked his head on furniture. No reason for suspicion when they find the body.
