The heartbreaking economy and constituting weight of this episode makes clear that Breaking Bad, which now has two episodes to run, is moving towards the finale with having a definite purpose.
(DEA) Assistant Special Agent in Charge (ASAC) Hank Schrader is the character which is played by Dean Norris in “Breaking Bad”.
In order to catch the elusive criminal known as “Heisenberg” hank had to overcome many obstacles. With Walt (Walter White), Hank had shared many personal details about his casework to arrest Heisenberg. ASAC Schrader cut off his emotional family ties with Walt, after Hank discovered Walt was actually Heisenberg.
Over his family ties to Walt, Hank chose “being an agent” over his family ties to Walt, and he wanted to die that way. Since Hank disliked the monster intensely that Walt had become, Hank wanted to die with dignity that is separate and apart from Walt. That’s why he said his name was “ASAC Schrader”.
ASAC Hank Schrader, a character whose transformation isn’t as great as those experienced by his brother-in-law Walt, but who has distinguished himself in ways his jolly, crude outline never initially suggested.
The moment Hank dies Walt drops to the ground in grief, his head in the red desert dirt, his mouth like some black void, to offer for consideration that this is where his soul had once lodged
So, nobody is ever going to see Hank again.” Walt may have been playing a role for Skyler, but he oppresses severely an already terrified Marie when his threats confirm Hank’s death.
