Walt continues his treatment and is starting to feel better but is concerned at the growing medical bills. Jesse begins to re-establish himself paying off his debts and getting a new place to live. He's interested in the renter however, Jane Margolis, who lives next door. Walt and Jesse soon rev up the RV and are cooking again. Jesse's not keen on selling the stuff on the street and suggests he and Walt take over Tuco's role as a distributor. Hank and the DEA have come across the name Heisenberg and aren't sure if he's real or just an urban legend. Hank is promoted and soon appointed to a tri-State drug task force. He may have health issues of his own however. Written by garykmcd

Another Great Episode
10 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The fifth episode on the second season of Breaking Bad is another great episode in the ever-continuing line of great episodes. It is still a little on the slow side, but the episode never feels boring thanks to some involving story lines. The acting continues to be incredible and the on screen chemistry between Cranston and Paul is stronger than ever.

In this episode, "Breakage," Walt is starting to feel better but is worried about how to pay off his bills. Jesse and Walt decides that they must become distributors and play the role that Tuco did. Meanwhile, Hank earns a promotion to a task force, but he may be suffering from health problems of his own.

Overall, this is another great episode. It's a little slow, but I believe they're only building the story so that the season will end in a bang. Nonetheless, this is still an intriguing episode. I rate this episode 9/10.
