The pilot is about 10 minutes longer than all other episodes, at least in the original version. However, it was shortened for the international broadcasts to have the same length as the other episodes, as was the case with The Walking Dead, for example. These cuts concerned the plot of the episode. Additionally, there is also a lot of alternative or completely new footage. This altered version could be seen e.g. on the UK channel FX. A detailed comparison between both versions with pictures can be found here.

There is also an altered version of the original cut, which features a few censorings like blurred breasts and muted swearings. This version was shown on AMC, where the episodes always can be seen first. However, only one month later IFC showed the same episode "Uncut & Uncensored" to the US audience. A detailed comparison between both versions with pictures can be found here.


This is shown by the last scene of Season 4, Walt is sitting in his garden which contains a Lily of the Valley plant. It is later explained, in Season 5, that Walt used Saul and Huell to lift the ricin cigarette from Jesse, so Walt could convince Jesse that Gus poisoned Brock. This is why Jesse turns on Walt in the final season.

For a number of reasons:

1) Victor was spotted at Gale's crime scene and being the cautious man that Gus was he couldn't risk Victor being picked up by the police.

2) Victor was cooking meth without permission and that angered Gus, as Walt said in Season 5 Victor "flew too close to the sun."

3) Victor failed to save Gale's life. After the death of Max, Gale more than likely became Gus's new lover and therefore Gus took it very personally when Gale was killed.

4) To scare the hell out of Walt and Jesse.

1)Jesse had a good reason to! Todd murdered the woman Jesse loved, in front of him, just to send him a message. He made Jesse a slave to his Jack's meth business and Jesse and Walt still had not forgotten about what he did to that little boy (Drew Sharp) when they stole the Methlamine from the train. He deserved it. He would not help Walt when Jack had a gun, to Walt, that's as good of a reason for Jessie to kill Todd and Walt to let it happen.

2)Todd was one of the people threatening Walt's family.

In the final scene Walt had achieved his objective, he had been able to give his family 9 million dollars, far more than he ever imagined when he first started cooking meth, he had saved his family from the Nazi's, he avenged Hank's murder and he had freed Jesse from being a slave. Ever since the show began Walt just wanted to ensure that his family was safe and had the money they needed. Seeing how Walt had just saved Jesse's life multiple times during the course of the show Jesse owed it to Walt to let him go out the way he wanted to. If Jesse tried to save Walt then Walt would certainly be arrested and his entire name would be disgraced.

No. The code of 'Omerta' prevents anyone who willingly enters organized crime from talking to the authorities no matter what happens to them or their families. In the Pilot Walt threatens to turn Jesse in to the DEA if Jesse doesn't agree to help him distribute meth but since Walt hadn't officially entered the meth business the code did not apply to him.

Jesse on the other hand did violate the code in the "Rabid Dog" episode when he spilled his guts to Hank about Walt.
