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.

A Great Goddamn Episode to a Great Goddamn Season
2 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"No more half measures." - Mike

Wow. Oh Wow.

There are many wonderful things about the show and Season 3. First, the character evolution is better than on almost any other show on TV. You can actually track the changes to these folks in a way that makes you realize that most other TV characters basically remain unchangeable. You see that Walt has become a crafty "bad" guy... he has truly broken bad. His wife has evolved . His son. Hank. And poor Jesse. They hardly resemble the characters we first met... and time has not been kind to any of them. And with the excellent writing, directing and acting for this particular episode... we can practically feel the guild and corruption pouring off of them.
