Hank, outraged over having been tricked into thinking that his wife has been in a horrible accident, goes after Jesse and gives him a severe beating. Jesse has every intention of pressing charges and Hank is suspended. He has other problems however when Gus points the Mexican cousins in his direction. Skyler meanwhile visits Walt in an attempt to help Hank. She wants him to get Jesse to drop the charges but he's not inclined to help out. At work, however, Walt's new assistant messes up their first batch of meth requiring them to start over again. His solution is to get Gus to hire Jesse as his assistant but he says he's not interested. Written by garykmcd

The best episode of Breaking Bad, or maybe anything.
23 August 2011 | by chillwill92See all my reviews

Up until "One Minute", most of Breaking Bad was nothing short of excellent. Between the richly drawn characters, dark story lines and subject matter, and the often great black comedy, it was one of the best shows on TV. After "One Minute", is is indisputably THE best show on TV. Seriously, "One Minute" is BRILLIANT. The final standoff is nothing short of bone-chilling and spectacular, and the entire season (and in some ways, the entire series) built up to it in a dramatic and thrilling manner. If you're thinking of watching Breaking Bad, watch the pilot first, and if that doesn't convince you, watch "One Minute". It may spoil some story lines for you, but it WILL assure you of the greatness of this series.
