so once he comfortable and an idea of how things work he was angling to be a kingpin himself. I'm just saying Walt's been angling for this since his problems with Gus.
The thing with Tuco wasn't giving him a chance either, it was a warning cuz he beat the **** out of Jesse. It was so they could come to an understanding for his product more than anything. He was scared to death and even more so after dealing with Tuco realizing how crazy he was. Once things got hot for Tuco he was taking Walt and Jesse regardless and the way things out technically Hank killed him. Walt was satisfied and dumb enough to just leave him bleeding and run with Jesse.
i agree this is what drives him.
although he may have had kingly aspirations, he still refrained from cold blooded murder in the vein of gus or tuco.
walt being satisfied and dumb, at that point he was still teaching, this is what prompted the "fugue" state.
mike i see where you are coming from.
my point is that walt has always been driven to the measures that he has had to take due to people trying to take advantage of him somehow.
