All that is there is a rough dirt road and a “cow house” in the distance. The desert is a place without memory, a place outside of things, where secrets can be kept, and meth can be cooked. This is where Walt lives now. It is in this desert space that Walt becomes a killer, albeit in self-defense. Ironically, the one thing that Walt views as holding the keys to the secret of life — chemistry — becomes the means to end lives. Walt, a father, teacher, and an integral part of an extended family — in other words, an agent of life and growth — has now become a meth cook, using chemical weapons to kill his enemies.

Crystal meth is a very pure, extremely potent form of methamphetamine that is usually smoked like crack cocaine, but can also be crushed and snorted, injected, or even inserted into the anus or urethra where it dissolves into the bloodstream.

Crystal meth is highly addictive and is such a horrifically vicious drug that in 2008 The Economist reported that in Pierce County, Washington, where 589 meth labs were found in 2001, some police and residents were relieved to see an uptick in crack use as an indicator that the meth trade was declining!

This type of shot will occur several times during the series, and seems to always serve to underscore the significance of a particular scene. Throughout the series, Gilligan & Co. employ what is called a point-of-view (POV) shot.
