We know Walt says he has "work to do" and that he goes off with his new identity. Although we can't be sure, we're led to believe he leaves for New Hampshire the next day. We also know from flash forwards that he doesn't come back until after his 52nd birthday, which I believe is still another 4-6 months off in the distance.
So that leads me to a couple of questions:
1. Is he deliberately waiting to get back at the Aryans until after he can stage a fake death and get the heat off him or will it be something else that causes him to come back for retribution (i.e. Marie and his family being killed when the Aryans are coming back to get all the evidence Hank had during the investigation)?
2. Assuming something happens to the rest of his family which is what prompts him to come back, I'm not sure why he would wait 4-6 months to come back. And if he does, will Jesse be a prisoner for that long?
I think we all get the gist of some of the things that could happen from here, but the timing is a bit fuzzy for me.
A guy creates a new identity, that doesn't necessarily mean he is going where his ID says he is from.
I don't know what kind of information the DEA would have on the Aryans. The only thing shown was Hank using Jessie in order to get Walt. Marie knew this but no one else did. Without Hank, Gomez, or Jessie there really isn't much evidence out there that could point the DEA to the Aryans. It actually ended up being Hank's fatal flaw. He wanted so badly to bring Walt in, not only to cover his own ass, but to get Heizenberg. He did it on his own only bring along his partner. When push came to shove they were alone in a remote part of the desert without any backup. The only people who know where Hank and Gomez are would be the Aryans, Jessie, and Walt. Do they go after Walt by using his family? Or are they content to disappear with $70M?
To be honest I really don't have a clue how they are going to wrap everything. At some point they have to explain two things. The first one is his birthday breakfast with the ID as well as all the guns. The second one is why he went back into his ramshackled house to get the ricin.
What I want to see is what does Walt do to the Aryans and what happens with a Walt and Jessie showdown? That has to happen doesn't it? Also will Walt be able to get his money to his family? That was the ultimate endgame wasn't it? His son may hate him, but Skylar seemed to accept her role in what happened.
