9:30pm – Monday, November 21 on ABC2
Already suffering from a lack of sleep that is exacerbating his compulsive behaviour, Walt is back in the lab working nonstop with Jesse to meet Gus’s quota.
Tired of having to do everything themselves, from the delicate and exacting lab work to the less-than-glamorous cleaning of their equipment, Jesse (Aaron Paul) suggests they hire assistants to handle the more menial tasks.
Dismissing the idea Walt (Bryan Cranston) redoubles his efforts to make sure the lab remains squeaky clean and insists Jesse do the same.
And after arguing over the cleanliness of their glassware Walt notices a small but significant discrepancy that suggests their deliveries to Gus (Giancarlo Esposito) are short.
But as Jesse looks to keep him from discovering the truth about his latest scam, Walt becomes obsessed with a fly that has infiltrated the lab and demands it be killed before they proceed.
Having narrowly escaped injury while trying to get the elusive fly Walt returns to the lab prepared to do whatever it takes to kill it.
His focus only increases as he develops a sophisticated fly swatter to aid in his mission, but Jesse’s efforts to sneak in some work on their latest batch of meth keep the two men at odds.
So, when Jesse suggests taking a break for a few minutes to cool down, Walt manages to lock him out of the lab.
But as Walt resumes his one-man fly-killing campaign Jesse strikes back by cutting off the electricity and plunging the lab into darkness.
