Storyline

Just as Skyler goes into labor, Walt has to deliver his 38 lbs. of meth to the wholesaler who has agreed to buy the lot for $1.2 million. Jesse and his girlfriend are now both doing heroin and when Walt races to Jesse's house to collect their stuff, he's stoned out of his mind. When Jesse wakes up the next morning, he has no recollection that Walt had been there the night before to get their stuff and freaks out thinking he's been robbed. Walt lets him stew for the day. Jane's father learns that she and Jesse are back on drugs and insists that she return to rehab or he will call the police. She agrees but Jesse has told her about his windfall and she knows exactly what to do. Walt's biggest problem is that he has all of this money but can't spend it because everyone thinks he's on the verge of bankruptcy. Walter Jr may have provided him with the solution.

Quotes

Jane Margolis: Do you know what this is?
Jesse Pinkman: It's a whole lot of cheddar.
Jane Margolis: This is freedom. This is saying, "I can go anywhere I want. I can be anybody." What do you want to be? Where do you want to go? South America? Europe? Australia?
Jesse Pinkman: Is New Zealand part of Australia?
Jane Margolis: New Zealand is New Zealand.
Jesse Pinkman: Right on. New Zealand. That's where they made "Lord of the Rings". I say we just move there, yo. I mean, you can do your art. Right? Like, you can paint the local castles and shit. And I can be a bush pilot.

A Tragedy Blows...
10 February 2011 | by Red_IdentitySee all my reviews

The Penultimate episode of the season is an amazing piece of television, and it's likely to haunt and shock many viewers. It's perhaps the best episode of the series thus far, with incredible performances. Cranston has never been better, while Paul is a force to be reckoned with. His storyline is wrapped up but will surely bring something new in the future. This season so far has shown us the addiction that is strong among druggies and this episode especially will be a key element in how Jesse's future turns out and will make many people especially be disgusted at the way these sort of situations break out. Hold on for dear life, because the last 10 minutes will rock you to the core.
