It's not going to be that simple at all. Those boys he made a deal with last episode (they weren't cartel) aren't going to just let him walk away. The reason they didn't just kill him is because he promised to deliver a high yield product that they could sell to a larger market that would result in them making more money than they were making before. They depend on regular shipments to keep their business going. Walt can't just turn off supply without pissing them off in the same way Gus couldn't stop production of his 200lbs a week.
They only know Walt as Heisenberg, but they know Pinkman by name. They will get Pinkman, and torture Pinkman until he gives up Walt's real identity, and then either kill Pinkman or make him cook (since walt already vouched for his skills). Hank is the least of Walt's problems imo.
Not sure if the young blonde dude knows walt by name but he's seen walt drive up in his real car so he could easily know his real identity as well. He probably wouldn't be too happy with Walt's retirement either since he's just starting out and seeing more money than he'd ever dreamed of.
Almost anything could happen next season.
