I know, another crazy episode. Very tough to watch, and I really felt uneasy more than once. But the phone call.
I say, Walt knew the police were listening in, and everything he said was for their benefit.
I agree, it looked like it pained him to say those things & pretty crude for Walt if he really meant what he said... I'm pretty sure that he was trying to make it look like it was all him so they would take it easy on Skyler. On talking bad, they described that rant as if he were the bad guy in a bad guy movie... Which is funny because he knows full well just how bad he's really gotten. The line about Jane was harsh but he had to get the last word with Jessie, WHO should have taken the ride in the red minivan for sure, now he's the dead man cooking! What a finely crafted show... Two more episodes & looking forward to "Better Call Saul". I guess that's a prequel?
