Continuity mistake: Mike yells at Jessie to make himself useful and find a gun. The shadows in these two scenes are very long indicating it was shot late in the day. In the next shots and rest of the sequence, the sun is overhead.

Just before he crashes, he's spinning clockwise, starts to lose control, and tries to correct it by turning the steering wheel sharply to the left.

Box Cutter - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: When Gus starts to walk away from where he killed Victor, he drops the Box Cutter, and we see it landing. However, after a cut to the next shot, its position has changed. It is no longer sitting on the line in the floor, and it is pointing 180° in the other direction. We can also see from Walt's shadow that the Box Cutter has moved quite a bit further away from Walt.

Chosen answer: There are several possibilities. Gus primarily does it to make an example out of Victor. Victor is one of Gus' most loyal henchman, and yet he had no problem killing him. Meaning it doesn't matter how loyal or valuable Walt is, he can still be killed and it won't bother Gus. However, Walt tells Jesse that perhaps Victor "flew too close to the sun." Meaning, Victor over stepped his bounds by learning how to cook meth. Gus didn't appreciate Victor's initiative and Gus only wants his employees to do the job they're given. Again, telling Walt and Jesse to do their job or else.

I think it was a combination of anger over Gayle's death and Victor being seen by witnesses makes Victor very vulnerable and therefore a dangerous liability to Fringe's empire.

By this point, the mugshot of Victor will have been spread around as a suspect in Gail's death. Victor had been come too hot to handle, so to say, so had to go.
