Having been kidnapped by a crazed Tuco, Walt and Jesse are held prisoner by him in a desert shack where he often hides out and takes care of his sick uncle. Walt's brother-in-law Hank and the DEA have rolled Tuco's entire organization and he thinks that his two prisoners may have been a source of information. Walt tries to feed Tuco the poison he prepared. Walter Jr. meanwhile takes a bit of time off to look for Walt. Skyler is sick with worry and has been distributing handbills with Walt's photo. He remembers that Jesse Pinkman was Walt's source of marijuana and tries to track him down. Tuco finally realizes that his prisoners are up to something and is obviously going to kill Jesse. After a fight in which Tuco is shot, Hank shows up looking for Jesse. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


When Tuco gets Walter and Jesse out of the car and into the house, there is a Mexican movie ("El mago" starring Cantinflas) playing on TV being watched by Tio Salamanca. The person seen on the screen is Ramiro Gamboa, who would be known as el Tío Gamboín in the 60's, a sort of Mr. Rogers for Mexican children. See more »


Staring at 3:35 Hank is seen rallying his DEA agents to go after Tuco. The ID badge around Hank's neck flips several times between cuts, alternating between his photo and a horizontal green stripe on one side, and a blank all white backside with a vertical magnetic stripe on the other. See more »

Tuco Salamanca: TELL ME WHAT YOU DID!
Walter White: We tried to poison you. We tried to poison you because you are an insane, degenerate piece of filth and you deserve to die.

Tension and Excitement
21 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

Just started watching Breaking Bad this week, and I am so impressed thus far. While season 1 gave a good intro, season 2 is truly developing into what I can say is going to be awesome.

I love the acting, the tension, and the action. This show is absolutely unpredictable. I especially love the previews at the beginning; you try to guess how it will get that way, but you're always wrong. This show has not failed to disappoint, and this episode is no exception. Definitely my favorite episode thus far. Seriously considering binge watching the rest of this show, but I don't want to ever end a show this good. Can't wait to watch the next episode.
