But even as he was kicking ass, taking names and getting lucky, he never really had it in him to face the consequences of his actions. This week, Walt's cowardice reaches its zenith, as he escapes to New Hampshire to waste away as a lonely mountain man. His loved ones, however, face a far more direct and brutal punishment.
