Who killed him? Was it the people you work for?
Walt: Definitely not.
Technically it was someone Walt works with. Walt convinced his partner Jesse to kill Gale out of self preservation. Mike was going to kill Walt, but Walt knew that Gus needed a constant flow of meth production to keep his empire running. So if Gale was taken out, Gus wouldn’t be able to afford killing Walt.
Jesse really had no other choice but to kill Gale, but the fact that Gale was such a good-hearted character made the death difficult to stomach. The entire show really comes down to doing awful things for “good” reasons, and there are few better examples of this than Gale’s murder.
