Due to lack of salary, this chemistry teacher turned into the best (medicine) concocter
A campervan was driving at high speed as if someone is chasing it. When the van stopped, an old man with nothing on him but a pants and gas mask came out of it. Before he left, he took his wallet and a gun. He also took a farewell tape for his family before finally approaching
the road and pointing his gun toward the incoming cars with sirens that seemed to be police cars. Back to three weeks ago, this is Walter White, the father of Walter White Junior and the husband of Skyler White. Walter is a genius chemistry teacher with lots of Nobel prizes awarded for his excellence in his field. Sadly, in the old age of 50, he often got sick.
He even had to eat vegan meat to control his cholesterol level. Fortunately, his wife was a kind woman and very concerned about his health condition. Walter Junior has suffered from brain paralysis since he was a child. That condition made it hard for him just to speak or move normally, so he needed a walking stick to help him to walk.
Walter is a teacher at the same school where his son studied. he worked as a chemistry teacher there, but due to a lack of salary as a teacher, he had to work another job in a car wash. Unluckily for him, that day, one of his customers was his student at school which indirectly humiliated him. However, Walter chose to remain silent and avoid any problems. When he got home, it turned out that the family had been waiting to give him a surprise for his 50th birthday. This surprise was attended by several friends and the sister of Skyler, named Marie Schrader, and her husband, Hank Schrader. Hank is a DEA agent and because of his job,
Walter junior admired him so much, in contrast to his father whom he had no respect for at all. Unfortunately, because he felt superior, Hank even dared to make fun of Walter and humiliate him in front of his son and wife. The next day, when Walter was at work, he suddenly fell unconscious. He was then rushed to the hospital by ambulance. When the doctor asked
about the symptoms, he admitted that he only had a mild cough due to lack of breakfast that morning, but after further examination by the doctor, it turned out that Walter suffered from inoperable late-stage lung cancer and his chances of life were only for a few more years. When he got home, Walter didn't immediately tell his wife about his condition. He acted passive, just like usual, as if nothing had happened, until the next day, Walter, who kept daydreaming, received a reprimand from his boss, but who knows what got into him that afternoon, he cursed and scolded his boss. He even went further and resigned that very day.
While daydreaming in his yard, Hank suddenly called and offered him a job. Walter was asked to examine a drug lab in the next raid operation. The next day, while carrying out the operation, Walter saw one of the targets escaped through a window. Somehow, Walter actually recognized that person. At night, Walter came to see the escaped raid target. It turned out that he was a
former student at his school. His name is Jesse Pinkman. Walter asked him about what happened that afternoon but Jesse acted like he didn’t know anything. Walter knew that Jesse was a drug dealer and without further ado, Walter offered to become his partner in crime, because according to Walter, he was a genius in chemistry, while Jesse was an expert in sales, and with both of them working together, they would get a lot of money in no time. Jesse was surprised the hear those words
came from a geeky-faced teacher. He didn’t take it seriously at first and even laughed at it, but Walter was not joking. He threatened to turn him into the police if he refused to work with him. The next day, Walter stole several chemistry tools from school and took them to Jesse's house. Walter explained the function of each of the tools but Jesse didn’t seem to care at all. He even denied that Walter’s theory would be less handy than his experience in meth cooking. He thought that a school teacher would not be better at cooking meth than a dealer like him.
but instead, Walter thought that Jesse’s meth was nothing more than a failure. Long story short, they agreed to buy a campervan. They then used the van as a moving lab for them to cook the meth. The next day, Walter accompanied his son to shop for clothes when suddenly, a group of teenagers showed up and bullied Walter Junior for his disability. Somehow, out of nowhere, as if something possessed him, Walter rampaged and managed to drive the bullies away.
That incident shocked his wife and son. A very timid person suddenly stood up and fight. First-day operation finally began as Walter and Jesse took the van to the middle of nowhere. Walter took off his clothes and left with his underpants which made Jesse confused by his behavior before entering the lab. It turned out that it was intended to prevent his clothes from being contaminated with chemical particles.
Walter's method of cooking the meth was way different from what Jesse usually did, and after they finished cooking their first batch, Jesse was left impressed. The pure clear crystal of meth that Walter just made was the clearest and the biggest he ever see in his entire life. Walter didn't care about the praise because all he wanted was to get a lot of money in a short time. The next day, Jesse, who worked as a dealer for them, immediately asked a friend to sell their products. He came to Domingo, one of his friends who had a lot of links to distributing the drugs. He is Emilio’s cousin, Jesse’s former partner who was previously arrested during Hank’s raid operation. After two weeks of staying at the prison, he had been bailed out of prison and had
a grudge against Jesse. They detained Jesse at his house. Jesse was asked to confess where he got the meth. Cornered, he finally leaked the information. The arrival of these two strangers certainly made Walter confused. Moreover, Emilio recognized Walter's face, who was at the crime scene when
he was arrested. This made the situation worse. They tried to escape but to no avail. He had no other option but to negotiate to save his life. He offered both of them his meth’s secret formula. Long story short, the deal was made. Full of doubts, Walter started to cook to show them his formula. There was tension because Walter deliberately slowed down each step, until finally, Walter had finished making a crystal which turned out to be explosive. He detonated the toxic compound and immediately got out of the van. The compound immediately
reacted with respiratory organs as a toxic that could cause death with just one inhalation. The explosive also sparked a fire that started to get bigger and burnt the grass around there. Walter immediately dragged Jesse and put on an anti-poison mask on him. He then immediately left that place. The scene back to the beginning of the film where
Walter stood in the middle of the road and pointed his gun toward the oncoming cars. He initially thought that the incoming sirens were from some police cars who came to arrest him, but it turned out to be a group of fire trucks on the rescue to extinguish the fire from the fire sparks before. The next morning, Walter was having breakfast with his family when a person claimed to be from a network provider called him. Walter knew that it was Jesse. He was so pissed
off because Jesse dared to call him through his home telephone number. house. Turned out, Jesse had bad news for him. Somehow, one of the men they locked in the van was still alive. It turned out that the chemical was not strong enough to kill both of them. He immediately went to Jesse’s house to see it by himself, but before heading there, he visited the school and took a strong acid fluid from there.
Domingo had freed himself from the van and escaped from there limply. Thankfully, Walter, who was on his way to Jesse’s house, saw him. He immediately caught him and put him in his car trunk. After he arrived and saw everything, he argued with Jesse about everything that had happened. The relationship between Jesse and Walter got worse thanks to that. They blamed each other for the mess they made. Moreover, Jesse’s ego made the situation even worse. The choice to let go
of Domingo was not a good idea. Moreover, with the death of Emilio, Domingo’s cousin, it was certain that he would revenge on them and finish off their family if he was freed, but after all, Emilio's dead body would soon develop an unpleasant aroma, so they had to get rid of it as soon as possible. Walter then suggested dissolving the body in strong acid. Upon hearing that, Jesse was shocked. Long story short, Jesse agreed with Walter's idea, which was to destroy his body with a chemical liquid so that it dissolved without a trace. None of them wanted to do the job and they ended up with a coin toss to decide who would do it. Jesse was chosen as the person who would dissolve Emilio's corpse, meanwhile, Walter had to kill Domingo.
Jesse immediately looked for all the necessary tools because the poisonous acid liquid needed a special plastic as a container. Meanwhile, Skyler's suspicions made her trace the number that had called Walter this morning. Skyler was flabbergasted when she found out that the number belonged to a drug addict and dealer, Jesse. At the same time, Walter visited Domingo whom they chained in Jesse’s basement, but instead of killing him, Walter gave him food and drink.
He cursed himself for his cowardly action because had no courage to kill Domingo. As if that wasn't enough, he rolled the pot that was on the table and smoked it. The next day, Walter accompanied his wife to check on the condition of their baby. The doctor said that Skyler would give birth to a baby girl. This certainly made them very happy, but before leaving that place, Skyler asked Walter about Jesse Pinkman because she had found out about him.
Walter knew that he couldn't cover up anything anymore. He admitted that he had indeed bought some pots from Jesse to calm his mind. Skyler obviously could not accept that answer because his own brother-in-law was a DEA agent, but somehow, Walter asked his wife to respect his decision.
The next day, while teaching in the class, Walter had a hallucination but luckily, he was able to handle the situation. At the same time, Jesse had started to dissolve the corpse and was moving it out of the van when suddenly, Skyler came and barged into his house. Skyler threatened to throw him in jail if he still sells pots to her husband. H, knowing that he was in an unfavorable situation, Jesse couldn’t say anything in defense. He just looked down and hoped that this way, Skyler will leave him. A moment before Skyler left, she smelled the unpleasant smell but luckily, she didn't suspect anything and immediately left Jesse.
After that, Jesse began the process of dissolving Emilio’s dead body with acid. Not long after that, Walter came. Jesse told Walter that he had finished his job. Emilio’s corpse had been soaked with the acid in the bathtub, Walter couldn’t help but be shocked to hear that Jesse used a bathtub to do the job instead of the special plastic container that he told him to use. They immediately headed towards the bathroom but before they got there, the acid had been leaking through the roof from the second floor and suddenly, the whole roof and parts of the bathtub, including the half-dissolved dead body came out of the roof. The acid dissolved everything so badly that it destroyed the building underneath. Walter asked him to buy a plastic tub
because the acid solution couldn't penetrate it but he didn’t do what was told and that happened. Jesse finally learned his lesson. While cleaning up the rest of the mess, Walter briefly remembered his youth when he was still learning chemistry with a woman but over time, he felt nauseous. Turned out, even though he had used a gas mask, he could still inhale the smell of the acid and the rotten body which made him cough so hard. Things got worse when
Walter found out that Jesse had been consuming the crystal meth that was supposed to be sold. Walter always said that they only cook it and not consume it, but Jesse refused the order. He brought up Walter’s unfinished problem with Domingo and made it an excuse for his mistakes.
Walter couldn’t say anything but stopped complaining. For Walter, murder is the biggest violation of his morals and life principles. By murdering, many aspects are violated. He knew that if he let Domingo away, there is only be one thing that would happen. He would kill all his family, including himself. That turmoil is what kept him
stalling and stalling for time. Meanwhile, his relationship and Skyler were also getting worse. The changes in Walter’s behavior were really hard for her to accept. Walter often disappeared unnoticed, came home late, and had no reason for what he was doing.
That made Skyler feel that Walter was hiding something from her. In the evening, Walter once again made dinner for Domingo. He removed the crust on the sides of the bread, just like Domingo did yesterday. Judging by that, not only that he feeds him, but he was also really willing to do it. Walter coughed while walking on the stairs to the basement, showing that his coughing had gotten worse. Just before he was about to hand over the plate,
his cough sent him unconscious, making him drop the plate to the floor into pieces. 15 minutes later, Walter came back to his consciousness. He immediately cleaned up the broken plate. and returned to make another sandwich for Domingo. After giving it, the two of them chatted. Walter admitted that he had suffered from lung cancer and wouldn’t live much longer. Walter seemed to want to get better acquainted with Domingo. Domingo
reminded him that not knowing himself too deeply would make it easier for Walter to kill him. Long story short, Walter's gentle nature was finally used by Domingo to let him go. Domingo promised to go far and act as if they had never known each other. The conversations became even more intimate from there, especially when Walter found out that Domingo was the child of the owner of the well-known furniture store, Tampico Furniture. As the chat between them went on, Walter’s intention to kill him slowly started to fade off.
Walter finally chose to believe in Domingo and betrayed Jesse. He had the key to the chain in his hand and the only thing he had to do was to unlock the chain and let him go, but just before he returned to the basement, Walter took the broken plates from before and put it back together. He then found out that one of the broken pieces was lost and realized that Domingo had taken it when he was unconscious before. He cursed himself for easily believing his enemy. Walter returned to the basement and Domingo smiled at him.
With great doubt, Walter asked him to turn around, and before unlocking the lock, Walter asked if Domingo was mad at him. Domingo said that he was fine and just wanted to go home, but apparently, Walter had found out that Domingo had planned to attack him to escape. Walter asked him about the broken glass that he hid and if he planned to attack him with it. Knowing that his plan was known, Domingo suddenly tried to attack him but he was too late. Walter pulled the tied on Domingo’s neck and strangled him to death.
The next day, Jesse came home and found nothing else in his house. Everything was clean. It seemed as if that was the last moment of their business. At the same time, the police were investigating the fire from the explosion that Walter made before. From the fire, they found lab traces and a small plastic of meth from the car that was left by Domingo. The investigation led by Hank also found Walter’s discarded mask. After that, he gathered all his squad and discussed their investigation. Meanwhile,
Walter drove home with a defeated look on his face as if he remembered Domingo's words last night. When he finally arrived home, after all this time, Walter finally told Skyler about his illness. Days passed, and, on the weekend, Skyler invited Hank and Marrie for a barbecue at his house. At first, everyone enjoyed their time until Hank opened a topic about how Walter and Skyler met for the first time. Walter began to tell about the romantic story of him and Skyler, but Skyler
suddenly cried when Walter told the sweet story of their young days. It turned out that Skyler was unable to hear all those beautiful stories when Walter was struggling with his last-stage cancer. Later that day, they all gathered and talked about Walter’s condition. It was clear that Skyler was very supportive of her husband’s condition. He assured Walter that everyone wanted to help him and that he didn't need to hide his illness.
While hank wondered about the initial cause of Walter’s illness, Skylar immediately assumed that this was all caused by a leak in the chemical lab where Walter worked 20 years ago. Skyler remembered exactly when Walter complained because they didn't give him an anti-poison gas mask at that time. Fortunately, Hank didn’t suspect anything when Skyler said that. Marrie, who is a doctor gave a solution for Walter. She said that she would take care of all radiology treatments and would provide the best oncologist to help Walter fight his illness. At the same time, Jesse was holding a drug party with two of his friends at his house.
It can be seen that his friends were just using him to get the last crystal meth that he had. The next morning, the oncologist called Skyler and informed her that he charged 5000 USD for one consultation session. Skyler asked Walter not to give up just because of money problems. After all, she could borrow from Hank or her parents, but that was against Walter’s life principle so he refused it by saying that he would instead use his pension money earlier when in fact, Walter had saved some money from the last sale of his crystal meth.
That afternoon, Walter intended to deposit his cash into the bank but when he was on his way to the bank, he heard a police siren heading toward him. Walter looked really panicked, but luckily, the police didn't chase after him. When he arrived at the bank and was waiting to get his parking spot, someone with a sports car took it over and seemed didn’t care at all after doing that. That really made Walter mad. The man who looked like a young executive kept talking through his earphones loudly. Everyone there looked very annoyed, even Walter was shaking while holding his anger but his cowardly nature prevented him to do so.
Meanwhile, Jesse, who was so frustrated decided to go to his parent’s home. Judging from how his parents behaved toward him, they seemed to be not in a good relationship. Even his father thought that Jesse shouldn’t be staying there in their house because they knew the fact that Jesse was a drug dealer and was clearly against the law. However, after seeing positive changes in Jesse, they finally decided to give him another chance. The next day, Jesse went to his brother’s room while he was studying. His brother is a smart student with various awards and Jesse was so proud of him.
Sadly, Jesse’s presence in his brother’s room didn't seem liked by his parents. They even opened the door to make sure Jesse didn’t do anything suspicious inside his own brother’s room. They were afraid Jesse would give him a bad influence but his brother denied it, saying that his father and mother never hated him so much. His brother said that Jesse was always a concern to the family and they always talked about him all the time. All night, Jesse thought about those words. He
wondered if his mother and father still loved him. His books and childhood toys also brought him nostalgic feelings and worsen his sadness that night. Not long after that, a friend called and said that he wanted to buy all the meth that Jesse had. the next morning. Jesse’s mother found marijuana in his son’s room and immediately blamed Jesse. They had tried to trust him, but Jesse always betrayed her, said the mother. From here, the father decided that Jesse was no longer allowed to return to their house.
He was kicked out of his own parent’s house. Before Jesse left from there, his brother chased him out to thank him for not telling the truth. Turned out, his brother was the real owner of the marijuana. When his brother asked for the marijuana back, Jesse crushed it with his hand and stepped on it. Jesse said that it was a type of marijuana that was dangerous to consume and immediately left from there.
From his parent’s house, Jesse headed straight to Walter's house. Walter was really mad because Jesse had gone too far and dared to come to his house. Walter said that they had nothing to do anymore. Everything was over and he didn't accept any offers. It turned out that Jesse's arrival was to give the last sale profit of 4000 US Dollars and hoped that Walter would be able to work with him again. The day of the medical check-up finally came. The doctor could not promise anything about the cure for Walter's cancer, but he could offer the best solution, namely using radiation and chemotherapy methods. In some cases, this method would work.
The result would extend the patient's life but there are side effects of this chemotherapy. The side effects are losing hair, extreme weight loss, energy deprivation, bleeding, and many more. Since his first consultation session, Skyler couldn’t stop reading books about treating cancer, but on the other hand, Walter never wanted all the treatment, especially when he found out that the whole treatment will cost them 90000 USD, and despite all that money, there is no guarantee that Walter would be cured. What Walter wanted was nothing more than happiness in his last years. He didn’t want to leave his family in a lot of debt, but his son didn’t show any respect to his father. He insulted him and told him to die instead, but even after that, he wasn’t mad at him. Walter is a very responsible father and husband to his family.
When Walter was driving, he suddenly coughed, but this time, the cough was worse. Blood came out from his mouth. Suddenly, he saw the same man who had stolen his parking spot before. He was so mad when he saw the man honking at a middle-aged woman who was crossing the road in front of him. As if the devil entered his body, Walter immediately came out and sabotaged the man's car. It only took
a few seconds and the car suddenly exploded. Fire came out and engulfed the whole car. Fed up with his illegal life, Jesse finally decided to apply for a job at a company. He claimed to be very skilled in selling anything but because he didn't have any experience, the HRD turned down his application. After that, Jesse met a friend who worked at the same company.
He claimed that he was the one who cooked meth for his friend. Hearing that, his friend told him that he had connections to provide raw materials for cooking meth, the pseudo. He said that he could provide him with the raw material so they could work together to produce it. Jesse looked troubled about whether to accept the offer, but, in the end, he accepted it. Meanwhile, Walter and Skyler came to a party after receiving an invitation from an old friend and fellow Caltech Alumnus named Elliott Schwartz. Elliott is a very rich man and the sole owner of a company called Gray Matter Technologies. A multi-billion-dollar
company co-founded by him and Walter. Even the name came from a combination of their last name, Schwartz as black in Germany and White combined made gray. Unfortunately, Walter sold his share of the company to Elliott for 5000 USD. After that, Elliott immediately secured the company's patent. Now, Elliott is very rich while Walter lives with lots of financial problems. Despite still being friends after that, Walter secretly blamed Elliott for everything he had now. During the party, Elliott decided to open all the gifts in front of everyone.
He received lots of expensive gifts from everyone until it was time for Walter’s gift. Knowing that his gift was nothing compared to the other gifts, Walter looked embarrassed. When Elliott opened the gift, it turned out to be Yum Good Ramen. Not a box full of it, a single package. Thankfully, Elliott saved Walter by saying that the ramen was the signature food they always had when they were still developing the business.
The purpose of Elliott's invitation to Walter was that he wanted to return to offer him to work for the company again, saying that he could provide the best insurance coverage for Walter's health. Despite the tempting offer, Walter decided to refuse the offer. Before they left, Walter, who found out that Skyler was the one who leaked his condition to Elliott became angry at her. He couldn’t believe that she could easily leak his
health condition to them, while Skyler really wants Walter to be helped and get well soon. Back to Jesse. He brought his friend to the van and launched his action with his new partner. The first reaction when his partner saw Walter's lab equipment was no different from what Jesse used to be who had a big mouth and know-it-all. The cooking process finally began. He implemented the little bit of knowledge he got from Walter in this cooking process. The presence of a new partner really didn’t help, not like Walter who used to do all the cooking professionally. Finally, they successfully cooked the meth. his partner looked very happy to see the crystals,
but not with Jesse. He said that it was a dull and defective product. The size was much smaller than it should be and it was not as clear as the one Walter cooked. Without hesitation, Jesse dumped the meth away. Back to Walter, when he came home from teaching, it turned out he had been awaited by Skyler, his son, Hank, and Marrie at his house. Turned out, Skyler had arranged that meeting to discuss Walter's decision to refuse treatment for his illness. One by one they started expressing their opinion according to each other's points of view.
Skyler said that Walter should have received help from Elliott because money is what could really help him in this situation, followed by Walter Junior who also expressed his frustration because his father had really changed like someone who wanted to give up, but when it was Marrie’s turn to speak, opinions began to differ. Marrie agreed with Walter's decision. As a doctor, she admitted it is sad for a patient to spend their last time just attending not-so-helping treatment and hearing the scary truth about his illness from doctor’s exams. This view was also supported by Hank. Suddenly, Skyler became angry at them for not supporting her opinion, even though she wanted everyone to be honest in the first place.
Meanwhile, Walter was just silent as if he saw his children arguing until finally, Walter took his turn to talk. Walter said that in his last days, he just wanted to spend time with his family. He didn't want to live like a dead person who could only lie down and put a burden on his family. He didn't want his last days to be remembered in that way, but he felt that so far, he had never made a decision based on his own will, so he asked everyone to be able to respect whatever he decided. The next morning, after waking up,
Walter saw a pile of books on his wife's bedside table containing everything about fighting cancer. Walter felt that his wife's energy was really extraordinarily positive for his recovery. Then he went to his wife and whispered that he would take the therapy.
Moving on to Jesse. The second cooking process has now been completed but unfortunately, the results were the same, the meth was dull and of very poor quality. When Jesse was about to dump that second batch, his partner couldn’t hold his patient anymore. He said that from the two batches of meth that they had cooked, they had wasted 3 pounds of pseudo and that they shouldn’t just dump the product. A fight between them happened. Jesse splashed chemical liquid and pushed the man out and he immediately left the place with the van. The next day, when heading to the hospital, Elliott’s wife, Gretchen contacted Walter and asked the reason for Walter's refusal of the hospital financing offered by Elliott.
Gretchen said that the money was his right because after all, Grey Matter Technology was formed by him and Elliott, and he had his own share of the company. She did not want to make herself a reason for Walter to refuse the money. Turned out, Gretchen was Walter’s ex-fiancé as well as his former lab partner until Elliott took over the company and married her, but Walter casually lied and said that his insurance had covered all of it. Short story, Walter finally did his first therapy session. His body was wrapped in clear plastic and his chest was blasted with lasers.
After doing chemotherapy, Walter came back to see Jesse, and without further ado, the first sentence that came out of Walter's mouth was to invite Jesse to cook meth with him again. The dominant character is starting to show in Walter. He made boundaries that cannot be broken for any reason. Everything related to lab work is his business, while all the affairs out there including selling and transactions are Jesse's business. No matter what, whatever happened out there, his job was to make the best meth crystals and Jesse had to sell it at all costs.
That day, Walter returned to teaching, as usual, only this time, his cough was really bothering him. He had to go to the toilet once in a few minutes. Fortunately, a janitor named Hugo always helped him sincerely. The next day, Skyler took Walter to a psychiatrist. He revealed that lately, Walter seemed to refuse her presence and made her feel as if she is not needed. Walter also tended to hide his presence and suddenly comes home at night without any explanation of where he had been all day. Walter then explained calmly. He admitted
that lately, he really liked to be alone, not because he didn’t need her, but by being alone, he felt more alive and relaxed. He said that he often walked around while enjoying nature, looking at the views of plants and grass fields. He claimed that that helped him get better and that the psychiatrist also supported him that way. What Walter said was half right. He was
indeed gone away to nature. Not to be alone but to cook meth with Jesse in their van. That day Walter was suffering from heat because of chemical contamination inside the lab. From here, Jesse accidentally saw chemotherapy marks on Walter’s chest and started to understand the reason behind Walter’s offer to cook meth again with him. Jesse assumed that Walter did all of this to make a lot of money for his family before he died. Jesse was a little disappointed, because, as a partner, he never knew the truth about Walter but this incident brought them together even closer. Long story short, the cooking process finally finished. Jesse immediately sold the crystal meth that had just been produced to the usual place
where he sells meth. He sold it to individuals. All users there were offered one by one. He then returned to the van and reported the sales to Walter. The total that could be sold that day was 2600 USD divided by two, so they got 1300 USD each. Knowing that they only sold that much,
Walter was mad. That money they got for a day was not enough for him because it was not worth the risk. Walter wanted Jesse to distribute their products to gangsters and make them regular buyers, but unfortunately, the only dealer that Jesse know was Domingo. Walter kept pushing Jesse to do everything possible to sell it, because, in the end, it was his job to sell the meth.
Meanwhile, Hank managed to track down the production code of the mask they found at the crime scene before. It turned out that the mask came from the property of Walter’s school chemistry lab. Moreover, the meth that they found was the purest ever found, and thought that there is a new meth producer in the game. That same afternoon, Hank went directly to meet Walter at his school. Hank asked Walter about his findings and asked if they missed some lab equipment in school. Walter calmly replied that he didn’t feel like he is missing anything in his lab, but Hank didn’t believe it that easily. He asked Walter to give him the lab’s equipment
list and was going to check it out himself. After being checked thoroughly, Hank found that the lab had lost two pairs of anti-poison masks along with several glass bottles. Hank knew that one of the missing glass bottles was the one often used to cook meth. In the middle of the investigation, Jesse suddenly called Walter. Jesse said that he
and his friends had found a good prospective buyer for them, a drug lord named Tuco. He said that Tuco would pay for 500 grams of their crystal meth. Luckily, Walter was good at making things up and covering the call so as not to be suspected. He then immediately hung up the phone. Meanwhile, Jesse and his partner had reached the front of Tuco’s base. They were stopped by the guards in front and asked about their intention but because their partner knew Tuco personally, they were allowed to enter the building. They were then detained again on the second floor where two big guys examined them thoroughly before meeting Tuco.
Jesse's partner was not Tuco’s good friend as he claimed to be. They were treated very badly. Jesse named his price as 35000 USD Before giving the meth, Tuco ordered Jesse to try it first to make sure that it was safe to consume. After making sure that it was safe, Tuco tried it himself and immediately liked it. He agreed to the trade and immediately asked the two of them to leave, but because he hadn't been paid, Jesse refused to leave the place and demanded the money.
This made Tuco angry because Jesse didn’t seem to believe him. Feeling things were getting out of control, Jesse tried to escape with the meth but unfortunately, he couldn’t pass the guards standing behind him. He was dragged back to Tuco. They discussed the deal again. Seeing that Jesse was trying to take back the crystal, Tuco took 35000 USD from his safe and put it inside a bag, not to give it to Jesse, but to bet him with it.
The next morning. Hank with his fellow DEA agents went to Walter’s school. In front of everyone, Hank and the other officer arrested Hugo. That evening, Hank discussed this matter while playing cards with Walter and his family.
According to Hank, Hugo is one of the access owners of the laboratory, and based on his background, Hugo also had several criminal records that strengthened the suspicion. Moreover, the police also found a big batch of marijuana in his car. From the evidence, Hank and the other officer concluded that Hugo is the person behind the disappearance of the lab equipment. Knowing that he had brought an innocent person to his problem, Walter felt guilty. That incident took
away Hugo’s job and sent him to prison for several months, but however, Walter couldn't do much. Later, while taking a shower, Walter found that his hair was starting to experience great loss. It was in accordance with the side effects of the chemotherapy he was undergoing so Walter wasn't too worried about it. Walter hadn’t been receiving any news from Jesse which made him worried. He then called him but it turned out that it was not Jesse who picked
up the call. It was his friend. His friend said that Jesse was in the hospital at that time. Walter went straight to the hospital. He immediately asked the man to tell him everything. Jesse had a broken bone in several parts and had not been conscious since last night. Walter firmly asked the man to explain everything about the person named Tuco. Meanwhile, the side effects of chemotherapy got worse each day. His Hair loss became too much to handle. Not wanting to overthink it, Walter decided to cut his hair bald.
His new look surprised his wife and son, but it seemed that he was fresher with that new appearance. Walter Junior also admitted that he liked it. That afternoon, Walter was seen in the car holding a plastic bag of meth crystal in his hand. It turned out that Walter was in front of Tuco’s base. After what happened to Jesse, Walter looked braver, far leaving his old self who was passive and cowardly. Walter told the
guard that he wanted to see Tuco. He was let in to face the second guard and was examined. Finally, he went to meet Tuco. Walter refused to sit down. He immediately asked for 50000 USD, 35000 for the meth he stole from Jesse, and 15000 USD for Jesse’s hospital fees. Tuco was not happy with his arrival but Walter had an ace in his hand. He tossed one of the crystals from the bag which immediately exploded after impact. Turned out, it wasn't meth he had but a chemical compound Walter made that was capable of blowing up the whole building. From here, Tuco realized that Walter was not just an ordinary person.
There was no other choice, either die together or do what Walter told him. Now, Tuco was the one who offered to cooperate with Walter. He also asked Walter to come back to bring him another 500 grams of meth the next. Tuco offered to become his regular. From this, Walter starts to take control.
This incident becomes the main point where Walter completely breaks out of his original character. Overcoming his fear to make him truly alive. With 50000 in his hand, was a witness to the birth of a new character whom Walter named Heisenberg. The next day, Walter immediately came to visit Jesse. It was seen that the house has now been opened for sale by a realtor because Jesse no longer had money. Jesse himself decided to live inside the van. Walter came to him and immediately gave him a share of 15000 USD from
the last transaction. Jesse was of course shocked to hear these words. He really couldn't believe that the geeky and cowardly Walter that he knew got the money, and even secured a deal with Tuco, but after all, the money in his hand was enough to prove that Walter was indeed made it. Walter also said that he had made an agreement with Tuco for weekly transactions.
Jesse immediately refused it. According to him, it was impossible to be able to produce 500 grams of crystals because the main ingredient, pseudo, is rare enough to get, let alone in a big amount. A week passed but Jesse kept complaining about everything. Now he blamed the transaction place that Walter chose and so on. Everything else is a problem for him until finally, Walter, who was already annoyed, asked him to leave, because his presence was not needed for the transaction. No matter what, the transaction would continue, with or without him.
Long story short, Tuco arrived at the transaction point. Turned out, Walter didn’t cook the amount that he promised before. Walter admitted that he had problems in production. Tuco was mad because the amount was not as promised. While Jesse was too scared to even look at them and just kept his head down, Walter was brave enough to negotiate. He asked for full payment of a kilogram of meth. Walter knew that they really liked the meth he cooked. This way, he did not worry because they would dare to touch him. He promised to fulfill the remaining the following week. Not only that,
but Walter also promised 2 kilograms the next week. He wanted to make sure that Tuco was able to pay for it. Hearing what Walter just said triggered Tuco’s anger, but even though he looked annoyed at that moment, he only threw money to show his anger and do nothing to harm Walter.
The deal made Jesse frustrated. Let alone cooking 2 kilograms of meth, they barely had enough pseudo for 250 grams of production. Turned out, Walter had a plan B for this situation. The scarcity of pseudo made him think that making it by themselves would be a good idea.
Jesse's smile immediately appeared when he heard this. Then, Jesse was asked to find all the raw materials needed to make the pseudo replacement. Back at Walter's house. They were celebrating before the birth of Walter and Skyler's daughter.
That Baby Shower event was attended by all family and friends. During the agenda, they opened every gift from the guests, but one gift really stole the attention. Marrie gave Skyler a really expensive baby tiara which must have been fantastically valuable.
Later that night, Skyler proposed to just sell the gifts from Marrie because, for her, there was nothing more needed by them than diapers and baby milk for the baby. Moreover, Skyler thought that the gift was too much for the baby. Back to Jesse, he almost had everything needed for pseudo production but one thing. Jesse was having trouble getting Methylamine because the goods are not sold legally. An acquaintance of his
offered to help but he's asking for 10000 USD for just that one item, because, to steal that item, they have to break through a four-inch solid steel door guarded by officers and surveillance cameras. Walter always has a solution for this kind of situation. Rather than having to pay a fortune, Walter had an idea when he saw Junior’s old toy on a shelf in the garage. He suggested they steal the item by themselves. Then, using Junior’s Etch-a-Sketch toys, Walter extracted the aluminum powder from it and mixed it with iron oxide to make termite. A compound that would produce a surface temperature high enough to melt through four inches of solid steel.
At the same time, Skyler actually came to the jewelry to return the tiara for money. The seller immediately recognized the tiara and asked his colleague to keep an eye on Skyler while he called the police because the crown that Skyler was holding was stolen from them. Skyler was detained for shoplifting. She repeatedly explained that the crown was a gift from the baby shower, but when asked who gave it to Skyler, she didn't want to answer. She felt cornered, moreover after the owner pressed charges. With quick thinking, Skyler threatened to report them to the media for detaining an innocent pregnant woman and putting her in an inhumanly closed room. Skyler's action was getting more and more intense. She even faked going into labor.
The store owner didn't want to take risks, and because of that, Skyler was released. As soon as he left the store, Skyler immediately called her sister and asked for her explanation. Meanwhile, Walter and Jesse had now arrived at the storage warehouse. That place is monitored 24 hours a day. While using a mask to cover their face, they began their action
by entering through the side gate. When they saw the security guards using the portable toilet, Walter had an idea to lock him from outside They finally reached the steel door and used the termite to melt the lock. The moment they found the item they were looking for, they realized that the item they wanted was only packaged in a large quantity, so they had no other choice but to use all their strength to carry such a heavy drum of methylamine out from there. Long story short, they succeeded in bringing it to the campervan, but when they were about to head out, the van which had been parked for a long time, failed to start when it was about to be turned on. The only possible place to cook it was the basement.
The Methylamine that they stole last night was assumed to be able to supply crystal production for an indefinite time. With that much raw material, they might generate approximately 80 million USD. Unluckily for them, the realtor had scheduled an open house that same day when they started cooking. Prospective buyers flocked in to see the condition of Jesse's house. Jesse said that he had made sure that the realtor should not do an open house that day but she eventually did. Jesse promised to handle all the ruckus and drove everyone away from there.
Besides, now that he has a lot of money, he doesn’t need to sell the house anymore. Meanwhile, Skyler actually confronted Marrie after telling her that she had been humiliated by the jewelry owner, but Marrie acted as if she didn't know anything. She kept dodging and choosing not to answer the question from her sister. Skyler was annoyed and finally left her after pouring out all her frustration. When she arrived home, Skyler told Walter everything that happened to her. Knowing Walter,
he didn't overreact to this. Walter is a wise person who never got too excited in responding to something and chooses not to spend his energy on trivial things like that, but the positive energy from him could calm Skyler down. She felt better after hearing Walter's words. Finally, the second transaction between Walter and Tuco was held, but this time, it was a little different. The meth was blue in color. Tuco was not sure and asked about it, but when he found out that the taste and quality were still the same, he had no problem with that.
It was the first time he smiled genuinely at Walter. It's enough to say that he wanted this transaction to continue, but suddenly, one of his men said something insulting to Walter. Tuco, who was previously calm suddenly went mad. He hit his man unconscious because he thought that the words from him seemed presumptuous and had the potential to ruin Walter and Tuco’s relationship. After beating his men unconscious, Tuco smiled at Walter and immediately left them.
