Storyline

Jess is ready for revenge when he realizes that the drug dealers who killed his friend are not only peddling their blue meth but are using an 11 year-old to do the work. He's prepared to kill them and wants Walt to help him out. Walt refuses but realizing the danger Jess has put himself in takes steps to protect him. Jess's demands that they stop using children leads to unintended and tragic consequences. At home, Walt tries to lay down the law as it pertains to his role in the family but Skyler holds her ground and refuses to give him everything he wants. Hank meanwhile is still reluctant to leave the hospital and go home, even though his doctors have told him he's free to leave at any time. Marie finds an interesting way to get him to agree.

Here We Go!

This is the twelfth episode of the third season of Breaking Bad and now the show took a drastic right turn for the better, which can't seem plausible since the show is already top-notch. But many things happen here which all leads to a shocking conclusion. I never saw what was coming, but I couldn't be any more gleeful about what happened. This episode is more action-packed and let's just say that things have gotten more interesting.

In this episode, "Half Measures," Jesse is not happy when he finds out that these drug dealers were peddling his meth and they used an eleven-year-old kid to do so. He asks Walt to help kill them, but Walt refuses and he fears for Jesse's safety. Jesse finally meets Gus for the first time and by saying he doesn't want them to use kids, he set off a ticking time bomb. Finally, Hank is still reluctant to leave the hospital, but Marie makes an interesting bet.

Overall, this one of the best episodes this season and by the shocker we see at the end, there is no doubt that the finale of the season may be the best episode of the entire series. The acting is fabulous by everyone, but it's nice too see Jonathan Banks as Mike have a bigger role in this episode. Y'all better hold on to your seatbelts. I rate this episode 10/10.
