9:30pm – Friday, October 29 on ABC2
During tests to see how his cancer treatments are going, a bloody coughing fit leaves Walt (Bryan Cranston) certain he doesn’t have much time left to live. Determined to provide for Skyler (Anna Gunn) and Walt Jr.(RJ Mitte), he turns to his lawyer, Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk), for advice before approaching Jesse (Aaron Paul) about a marathon meth cooking session to raise some cash.
So, telling Skyler he is going to visit his mother – a trip he knows she would never want to make – Walt interrupts Jesse’s plans with his new girlfriend and orders him to round up all the supplies they’ll need. After meeting up at the airport, they take their mobile meth lab into the forbidding terrain outside Albuquerque for several days of nonstop cooking. However, Jesse puts the keys in the ignition for safekeeping, leaving him and Walt unaware of the peril they’re in as the RV’s battery is slowly drained.
After their meth cooking marathon leaves them exhausted but potentially over a million dollars richer, Jesse persuades Walt to head into town to gas up their generator and have a decent meal before completing their final batch. But when they try to start the RV, it’s clear that they’re stranded in the middle of nowhere with a dead battery. And when they try to jump-start the battery using the generator and some gas from the RV’s tank, Jesse’s carelessness ignites a fire that leaves them without any water either. Although wary of using his cell phone lest Skyler discover what he’s really up to, Walt has no choice but to let Jesse call a friend to arrange for a rescue.
