So now I think we assume that Gus believes Walt and Jesse are both after him.
His next move will be pretty interesting. Let's hope that Jesse isn't dumb enough to go back to the lab.
Yes. Surely Walt + Gus' suggestion to Jesse that he not return for a week has convinced Jesse that nothing good can come from his returning to the lab. This is, as Saul put it, the end game. Jesse has to see that.
Gus has to have at least 3 exit plans at the ready, one wonders what it will take to get him to disappear - at least for the short term. Seems like things are closing in around him.
One has to wonder about Mike and his condition. Assuming Mike recovers (and I think he will), a strong possibility is that Jesse explains to Mike how Gus and his doctors were willing to let Mike bleed to death in that portable hospital in Mexico. Mike hasn't forgotten what happened to Victor, and realizing that Gus regards him as expendable, Mike could very well come over to Walt's (and now Jesse's again) side. Mike could be the trigger man to take out Gus, which I think would be a very satisfying end to Gus. Walt + Jesse + Mike together = Gus dead.
Gus' death is the only reasonable and satisfying conclusion to Season 4, setting up the inevitable main story arc of Season 5, the escalation of the Hunt for Heisenberg by Hank, the search for his own brother-in-law right under his nose. This is where the show has been heading from the pilot. The ultimate showdown has always been Hank vs. Walt. It's been a slow burn. Those people preoccupied with spinning wild conspiracy theories have mostly ignored this fundamental story lurking beneath all the cool, exciting stuff happening all around it.
