GUSTAVO FRING – BREAKING BAD – The Death Face Collectible
Gustavo “Gus” Fring was supposedly a Chilean-born Albuquerque restaurateur, mob boss, business magnate, and philanthropist. He was the respected proprietor of Los Pollos Hermanos, a highly successful restaurant chain. However, despite outward appearances, Gus was a major drug kingpin initially affiliated with the Mexican Juárez Cartel, secretly using his restaurant as a legitimate cover for methamphetamine distribution throughout the American southwest. Like Walter White, Gus was a criminal who “hid in plain sight”, using his anti-drug philanthropy to conceal his true nature and build his illicit drug empire step by step.
When Walt seeks a buyer for his chemically pure meth, he is put in contact with Gus. Walt manages to persuade Gus into purchasing thirty-eight pounds of his meth for $1.2 million; after the product yields good returns, Gus offers Walt $3 million for three months of his time. Gus’ hiring and protection of Walt puts him at odds with the cartel’s leadership. Despite Gus’ initial protection of Walt during the second and third seasons, the collaboration between the two men becomes permanently strained after he attempts to kill Walter for killing two of his dealers and after Jesse kills Gale on Walter’s orders. Gus then becomes a formidable adversary of Walt’s and the main antagonist during the fourth season.
Despite being one step ahead of Walter at every turn and predicting every one of Walt’s attempts to kill him, Gus did have one weakness – his unbridled hatred for Hector “Tio” Salamanca, a weakness that Walt discovered and ultimately exploited. To this end, Gus was killed in the Casa Tranquila explosion in which Walter convinced Hector to essentially suicide bomb Gus.
