How Does Walter White Die ?

The reason behind Walter White’s death was a gunshot wound he got during his assualt against Jack Welker’s hideout like we just explained, but lets look into a bit more depth under this heading.

Walt Throws the gun towards Jesse and tells him to shoot Walt. Jesse, in tears, being emotional refuses unless Walt tells him he wants it. Walt convinces Jesse that he wants to die, but Jesse drops the gun.

It’s argued Jesse notices Walt’s gunshot wound and tells Walter to ‘do it himself’, although it could be seen as Jesse finally breaking away from Walter’s grip over him once and for all, leaving on his own terms. After telling Lydia (Laura Fraser) he poisoned her with ricin over the phone and seeing Jesse depart, Walter goes back to Jack’s meth lab and looks nostalgically remembering everything over the equipment, before he dies, lying on the floor as the police arrive.

He always had people to do killing for him, like Mike, Jesse etc. however, There are these 12 people which he killed directly by himself.

There are then some other killings which are connected to Walter White, like those 167 people who were boarding the Wayfarer. Others including Jesse’s girlfriend “Jane” and Gale “the chemist” who was Walt’s assistant he was killed by Jesse but was persuaded by Walter White.

Many of his most infamous killings were actually carried out by others like we mentioned above, albeit at Walt’s behest.

Why Does Walter Kill Mike?

This is what happens when egoistic Walter white gets pissed off. There’s undeniably a lot more to it. He’d never walk on the same path of thinking as Mike, Mike had also warned him that he would kill him on multiple events, and at once he was actually going to do it. Walt’s rising self-esteem and anger made him prove to Mike that he is got guts and wanted to show Mike who is the boss.

But it’s critical to note that, in the moment that Walt pulled the trigger, he had no objective reason to kill Mike. It’s true that Mike refused to give Walt the names of his guys (and Walt realized, a minute later, that Lydia had the names), but shooting him wasn’t going to get them. Mike was leaving town, and was in no position to stop Walt from going on an assassination spree. He was simply no threat anymore. But Mike unleashed all his anger and told Walt what he really thought of him. And, as the icing on the cake, refused to cooperate with him any further.

Walt was angry, fuming, and high on his own sense of power, so he pulled out a gun and shot him. It is mostly perceived, that it was at this point where he abandoned any remaining vestiges of his morality. All of his previous killings had actual justifications. That didn’t make them right, but he was always acting out of desperation. But this was something new. He was angry, he wanted to strike back, and so he killed someone.

The time had come where walt could not play a nice guy anymore or pretend that he is a good guy, Hs showed that badass type of his at the end.

Why does Walter kill Gus?

There were many reason why Walter wanted to kill Gus. For instance, Walter was afraid that he would eventually be killed by Gus and or perhaps Walt was scared that Jesse would give up on protecting him from Gus. These reasons led to a change in the intentions of Walter White. According to Gus, Walter’s behavior was unreliable and Gus thought that it is easier to manipulate Pinkman. So these reasons were somehow known to Walter and he knew only one of them could survive and he knew that he will have to kill Gus as soon as he can.

 The turning point was when Walt manipulated Jesse into killing Gale, which obviously made Gus even angrier, as Gus wanted to kill off Jesse and hire Gale back. Now, Gus had lost his trump card and had no choice but to keep Walter and Jesse so as to maintain his profits. Gus tried hard to manipulate Jesse to cook for him without Walt, and almost succeeded when Jesse thought that Brock was poisoned by Walt.

Again, Walt with his brilliant thinking used Tomas’ murder as proof that Gus didn’t care about using children and turned Jesse against Gus. After all that Gus was eventually killed by the master mind Walter White.

Why did Walter poison Brock ?

The reason why Walter poisoned brock was to turn Jesse against Gus. At first, Jesse presumes Walt poisoned Brock with the ricin he had intended to give to Gus Fring. But Walt persuades Jesse that Gus is the actual person behind the poison as a means to tear them apart, effectively turning Jesse against Gus. It’s an evil trick that works.

The truth is that Walt did poison Brock just not with ricin. Instead, he used a Lily of the Valley plant which was growing in his backyard. The effects of ingesting the flower mimicked the ricin that Jesse assumed Brock had eaten.
