In the episode "Ozymandias" of "Breaking Bad" final season, Walter White (Bryan Cranston) lost everything and was left with just a barrel of his blood money. Walt was unable to save his brother-in-law, Hank (Dean Norris), despite offering 80 million dollars to Todd's (Jesse Plemons) uncle, Jack.

"Let him go," Walt said to Jack. "He is my family. He is my brother-in-law."
Hank was not going to beg and he saw through it that his death was inevitable. He said to Walt, "you're the smartest guy that I ever met. You just too stupid to see, he made up his mind 10 minutes, ago." To Jack and his men, Hank said, "Do it what you gonna do." The barren land of 'To'hajiilee' saw the collapse of a helpless, crying Walt when Jack pulled the trigger and killed Hank.
The only person affected by the collapse of Walt was Todd, while his uncle figured out that the location address provided by Walt was too specific. Jack's men unearthed the blood money filled barrels.
The barrels were taken out from the ditch that Walt had dug to hide them, and the two dead bodies, Hank and his DEA colleague Steven (Steven Quezada), were interred in the same ditch. Jack left one of the barrels for Walt and said, "No hard feelings. We're square."
Walt stopped him and said, "You still owe me." He was talking about the target, Jesse Pinkman. Walt said "found him" when Jack said to find Jesse and let him know. He pointed at Jesse, who was hiding under Walt's car. Jesse was pulled out by Jack's men and was about to meet his death when Todd intervened by saying that they must first find out what he had told the DEA agents.
While Jesse was walking away, Walt said to him, "I watched Jane (Krysten Ritter) die. I was there, and I watched her die. I watched her overdose and choke to death. I could have saved her, but I didn't." It was one of the most awaited scenes -- Jesse finding out the truth behind Jane's death. Walt was like a cold fiend who was putting the last nail in Jesse's coffin.
Walt's car broke down and he had to roll his barrel a long distance on the barren land, under the sun to reach the house of a Red Indian. He asked the man of the house to sell his truck and paid him from the barrel. While he was making a deal to get the truck, Marie (Betsy Brandt) was at Walt's Car Wash. She told Skyler (Anna Gunn) that it was all over and that Walt was in custody.
Marie told Skyler that it was time to tell Walt Jr. (RJ Mitte), everything. She convinced a hesistant and fearful Skyler to do that. Unaware of Hank's death, Marie assured Skyler that Hank will do whatever can be done to support them. Walt's son refused to believe the truth about his a dad. He later blamed Skyler for siding-up with Walt despite knowing, everything.
When Skyler and Walt Jr. reached home, Walt was already there packing bags. Skyler wanted to know what happened to Hank and how he got out of the custody. Walt kept telling her everything will be fine, pack the bags, and that they have to get out of the house as quickly as possible. Skyler pulled out a knife and attacked him to protect her children and herself.
Skyler and Walt had a knife scuffle and Walt Jr. called up the police, informing that his dad had attacked his mom. Walt took Holly away, with him. Later, he called up Skyler -- policemen were present at Walt's house alongwith Marie -- to reprimand her and tell her that she has always been the whining one, and has never believed him and appreciated what he has done for the family. The converstion also revealed to Skyler and Marie that Hank was dead.
Walt put Holly in the front seat of a fire-engine, standing right in front of the Albuquerque fire station. Later, he got into a car, probably arranged by Saul (Bob Odenkirk), with his barrel and suitcases.
It was a saying goodbye episode for Walt.
