Storyline

Having made a deal with Tuco to provide him with two pounds of crystal meth the following week, Walt learns from Jesse that they may have problems getting a key ingredient. Enjoying his new Heisenberg persona, Walt delivers only half a pound to Tuco but demands the entire amount of cash with the promise that he'll deliver four pounds the following week. Jesse reels, but Walt has a plan. They will have to break into a pharmaceutical supply warehouse however. Skyler's sister Marie throws a baby shower for her and her gift is a baby's tiara. Deciding that it's too extravagant, Skyler tries to return it to the store with surprising results. Written by garykmcd

Walter decides to get in bed with Tuco, who is about as psychotic as they make them. He is cracked and unpredictable. Walter makes a promise of four pounds of meth and Jesse can't believe him. The problem is they can't get their hands on Sudofed which is critical in the process. Walter sets up shop back in Jesse's basement. They have to stop stealing from the school and this episode is mostly about what they do. Walter, being the skilled chemist, finds an alternative but they must steal a particular chemical by breaking into a warehouse. Meanwhile, Skylar, long pregnant, gets a really expensive tiara for her not- yet-born daughter. When she tries to return it, the accuse her of shoplifting it. This will be leading to complications down the road. This episode has an incredibly violent conclusion which will add to the tension.
