Gale's Apartment is Gale Boetticher's home.


Season 3[]

Gustavo Fring dropped in on Gale unannounced to discuss his readiness to take over as lead chemist at the superlab "should the worst happen" to Walter White. Gus pressured Gale into saying that one further cook together with Walt would be sufficient.

Later, when Mike Ehrmantraut and Victor were about to kill Walt, he called Jesse Pinkman and sent him to the apartment to kill Gale, which would force Gus to let them both live. ("Full Measure")

Season 4[]

After Jesse had killed Gale, Victor arrived at the apartment, pushing past Gale's neighbors and confirming that Gale was dead. Victor then quickly left without a chance to clean up the scene or take Gale's lab notes from his coffee table. He found Jesse outside in his 1986 Toyota Tercel and forced him to drive to the Superlab. ("Box Cutter")

Later on when the police had arrived, they set up a crime scene inside Gale's apartment and eventually found the lab notes.
