In Treatment: Walter vs. Walter

Rosie, Kramer vs. Kramer, the lawsuit, and that stupid turtle all make an appearance before the credits. Walter’s still worried about bad press; some malcontent is leaking info to that lady reporter. Paul shows him that the anxiety attacks are, duh, anxiety attacks, and are connected to his promising brother’s death at 17. Walter’s been trying to live up to him ever since — and he's terrified that he’ll lose someone else. Connecting the “disappearance” of the brother, a security guard, and (potentially) Walter’s daughter is brilliant. But Walter’s a dick, and we’re hoping it’s his daughter who’s exposing the company’s flaws to the press.
