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.

Breaking Bad at it's BEST... absolutely
28 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We all know by now that most TV Series' in this format always save the best for the last 2 or 3 episodes. Well, this is no different. Right from the cold open, hearing The Associations classic rock/oldies song "Windy" will never be heard the same again. This episode grabs you right from the beginning and never lets go. Mike has always been kind of quiet, and we don't know much about him other than his intimidating demeanor, and in this episode we get a little back story. We learn in this episode that Mike really does care about Walt and does want to see him succeed with their business venture, however, Walt cares about his partner too much to just turn his back on him. Gus seems like a real pragmatist on the surface, but perhaps that is just a ploy? In any event, by the end of this episode, it will be made abundantly clear to us just WHO Walt's allegiance is with. The final scene of this amazing episode will leave you "in awe" and unable to change the channel or get up or even move. But not to worry, there is still the finale "Full Measure".
