9:30pm – Friday, March 5 on ABC2
Although he should be worried, Walt (Bryan Cranston) finds it erotically exciting to stay one step ahead of the police investigation that could ultimately tie him to a pair of murders. While the beating he suffered has Jesse (Aaron Paul) looking to sell his house and get out of the drug trade altogether, the new deal Walt has negotiated is restarting their meth lab in order to satisfy the ruthless Tuco (Raymond Cruz). But even though they come up woefully short of what was promised, Walt still convinces Tuco to underwrite the purchase of more equipment and materials for their business.
Meanwhile, as she looks to Dr. Delcavoli for a ray of hope in Walt’s battle with cancer, Skyler’s (Anna Gunn) arrest while returning an expensive baby shower gift has led her to suspect that it was stolen by her sister, Marie.
To make good on the four pounds of meth he promised to deliver to Tuco every week, Walt devises a new process and sends Jesse to procure a long list of lab equipment and chemicals.
To get the time away from home he needs to complete his work, Walt tells Skyler that he is going to spend a few days at a Navajo healing ceremony. However, when Jesse come up one ingredient shy of what they need to manufacture the next batch, Walt’s homemade bomb helps them carry out a daring night time raid on a chemical plant to steal it. And when problems with their mobile lab force them to relocate their operation to Jesse’s basement, they risk being discovered during a realtor’s unexpected open house.
Finally, after delivering a new batch to Tuco, Walt and Jesse get the go ahead to produce as much meth as they can.
