Storyline

Walt's operation is all set to go forward but under sedation, he tells Skyler something that she did not want to hear. As a result, all of his lies - getting money from the Schwartz's, visiting his mother for four days, having a second cell phone - unravel before him. Once recovered from his operation, Skyler tells him to leave. At the DEA, Hank is convinced that Heisenberg is still on the loose but has become much more sophisticated in the way he is distributing his now infamous blue meth. A chance encounter reveals to someone Walt's connection to Hank. Jesse learns the true cost of his drug habit when girlfriend Jane overdoses. Her distraught father returns to work too soon and the result is a tragic, massive accident. Written by garykmcd

Excellent Finale!
25 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the thirteenth episode of the second season of Breaking Bad and up to this point, this may be the best episode yet. As for finales go, this blows away the finale of Season 1. This has many shocking moments, such outstanding dialogue, solid visual effects, great acting especially by Cranston and Anna Gunn.

In this episode, "ABQ," Jesse blames himself for the death of Jane so he enters himself into rehab. Meanwhile, as Walt is about to go under the knife, he accidentally let something slips which has a dominoes effect as Skylar is fed up with his lies.

Overall, this is an incredible episode full of many intense moments. It's emotional on a high level and just a smart, well-written episode that has not one, but several shockers. Bring on the third season! I rate this episode 10/10.
