Just as Skyler goes into labor, Walt has to deliver his 38 lbs. of meth to the wholesaler who has agreed to buy the lot for $1.2 million. Jesse and his girlfriend are now both doing heroin and when Walt races to Jesse's house to collect their stuff, he's stoned out of his mind. When Jesse wakes up the next morning, he has no recollection that Walt had been there the night before to get their stuff and freaks out thinking he's been robbed. Walt lets him stew for the day. Jane's father learns that she and Jesse are back on drugs and insists that she return to rehab or he will call the police. She agrees but Jesse has told her about his windfall and she knows exactly what to do. Walt's biggest problem is that he has all of this money but can't spend it because everyone thinks he's on the verge of bankruptcy. Walter Jr may have provided him with the solution.

Walt demands a urine sample from Jesse and tosses a glass beaker to him. A minute later, after Walt calls Jane Jesse's "little junkie girlfriend," Jesse hurls the beaker at the chalkboard, shattering it. A few shots later, we see the area between the board and Walt's work station at the front of the class, and there is not one shard of broken glass on the floor. See more »

Can't Wait For What Happens Next!
20 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the twelfth episode in the second season of Breaking Bad and let me start off by saying that up to this point, this may be the best episode of the season. The first half of the episode is very calm and loose as Walt enjoys his new daughter. The second half picks up the intensity exponentially as we some legit crazy scenes. As always there is fantastic acting here, more so by Bryan Cranston.

In this episode, "Phoenix," Walt's daughter Holly is born, but Walt misses her birth due to the fact that he got his family rich. Meanwhile, Jesse and his girlfriend Jane becomes addicted to heroin and Walt refuses to give Jesse money until he sobers up. Finally, Walter Jr. comes up with an idea that would raise money for Walt's cancer treatment.

Overall, this is an incredible episode and the last five minutes will shock you. I'm eagerly anticipating on what will happen in the season finale and I so can't wait. I rate this episode 10/10.
