In With the Big Boys
15 December 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
