I am personally in the process of creating an outline containing the evidence behind my theory. For now, I only leave my fellow ATS members with the
theory itself, to see if anyone else has noticed any hints pointing towards Hank Schrader's "secret life".
Throughout the series, you see him snapping on multiple occasions for reasons not fully explained. Getting in violent bar brawls in shady parts of
town on purpose, almost passing out in the elevator after being told he can't chase Heisenberg anymore, and many many more.
Why, even when being pushed to stop by his own friends, family, and superiors, does he continue to insist on chasing Heisenberg?
Why, whenever evidence surfaced to the police about the blue meth and Heisenberg disappearing, did Hank insist they were both still out there
Why did a man who laughed at two dead gang bangers, stating, "it was hilarious, i've got pictures on my website." Back away out of disguist and
fear from a head on a turtle? Only having it explode seconds later leaving only hank untouched?
After the exploding tortoise incident, he and Walt have a conversation in which Hank says something along the lines of "i went to get an evidence bag
and ended up without a scratch on me. must be something wrong with that picture." followed with "everyone has secrets"
I believe, with a birds eye view taken on the whole series, that Agent Hank Schrader has a deep, unexplained connection to the drug cartel he claims
Somehow, either through blackmail, intimidation, or corruption, they've got him on their hook as a DEA insider to stop their only known
competition in the methamphetamine market, known only to them as Heisenberg.
Whether you have evidence to support this, or squash it, let me know.
Maybe Better Call Saul will cover Hank's back story further.
