Episode 509 "The Decision"

Breaking Bad is in the thick of production right now. I live near several scene locations and was able to witness the prepping of several scenes and taping of the show.

On 12-7-12 Bryan Cranston directed the teaser for the midseason premier which takes place a year into the future following on the teaser from Live free or Die. Walt, with a full head of hair and an unkempt beard, stands in front of the White house which is now abandoned, condemned and trashed. The windows are all boarded up. There are old leaves all over the yard and on top of the house. A chain link fence has been placed around the property with yellow warning signs saying to stay off the property by order of the city of Albuquerque.

Next, they filmed a driving scene with Hank and Marie in their Durango leaving the White house just after Hank discovers that Walt is Heisenberg.

On 12-12 they filmed some scenes at the car wash. The scene involves Skyler being questioned by a blonde haired woman perhaps from the IRS. They also had a Saul Goodman ad posted on a large city billboard near the car wash.

Prop crews restored the house back to normal and then spent 2 days putting leaves on every branch on the tree in the front yard, greening up the shrubs to make it look like spring.  Plastic roses were put in planters in the house next door for two scenes with a neighbor lady named Carol . According to Bryan Cranston, one scene is very sweet and nice and one is not.

On 12-10 a number of scenes were filmed with Walt at the storage unit (4800 block of Tramway Ridge NE) where the pile of cash is still being kept.

Aaron Paul showed up with an advanced beard. His scene involved a very angry Jesse banging on white Cadillac in the driveway, trying to get the trunk to open. There were a couple of large red gas cans in the trunk perhaps containg hydrofluoric acid. Walt comes out of the house. He opens the door and looks at something then he gets inside the car.

In the driving scene that was being taped, Hank, was driving his Durango, with Jesse as his passenger.

In the final scene, Walt walks out of the house, in the middle of the night, in his bathrobe. He looks puzzled, like he's trying to figure out what's going on. He walks up to his black Chrysler, goes to the rear end and looks for something under the rear bumper. He then pulls out, a GPS tracker like the one Hank had him plant on Gus' car, then he looks completely stunned, and then looks up and gazes into the distance. He's just realized Hank has been tracking his movements and so knows he has been visiting the storage unit. The camera slowly backs away from him in a dramatic shot and the scene ends.

This guy is legit. Ive seen on the web that theyve filmed at the storage unit atleast once a day every 8 days for the whole season. Ive seen pictures of the White house boarded up. On December 12 they did film at the car wash with a Goodman billboard. It feels like the wait for the end of BB is the longest ever, so thanks for the detailed info on the filming.

You can notice hes holding something small in his hands too when he looks around. I wonder what epsiode this is from... I would think 509 is too soon for Walt to figure out Hank is on to him.

I think it is from 509, there are only 8 episodes left and vince gilligan has stated that the last episodes are full on and fast from the get go. If Walt finds out early on then it gives way to the game of cat and mouse for the entire season which I think will be great to watch.

I always pictured it as Hank trying to get everything and being so careful doing so but throughout the season it would set off red flags. I always thought it would be the 4th episode where Walt really catches on. Spoiler alert coming up for other shows... But I think this is 509 now. We saw it with Season 7 of Dexter, Deb finds a little truth and then it all unravels at the end of episode 1, Homeland were Brody's confession was found early on... And BB has the best writers so if thoes shows can do it, then it should be the most intense for Breaking Bad.
