Not exactly. Mike was in many always more dangerous than Gus - perhaps not as brilliant strategically, but not as subject to emotional rampages which could come back to hurt him. Mike's view of what his business expenses entail - big payment to all of Gus's now Mike's people to make them "whole" i.e., keep them quiet - of course makes Walt unhappy, and puts the two on a collision course which promises to be at least as explosive as Gus and Walt's. Jesse tries to make a little peace, and we all know that this won't last long.
Meanwhile, my favorite part of Breaking Bad 5.3 is the new lab that Walt decides upon - not a single lab, but multiple, rolling labs, in which homes scheduled for exterminator treatment get commandeered for blue meth production. It's a brilliant idea. The home owners have to leave their home for a few days. The home is draped, so no one can see what's going on. The extermination will leave a bit of a strange smell anyway. So what better place to do a little cooking?
We had a new roof put on our home a few months ago. We didn't have to leave, but might have, given the noise. The house was mostly draped. I didn't see anyone who looked like Walt and Jesse walking around, but was that smell really from the fertilizer my neighbor was putting in?
