Walt begins his chemotherapy and returns to cooking crystal meth with Jesse. Soon Jesse is selling their superior product on the street but he only manages to sell an ounce making each of them only $1300. Walt pushes him to be more imaginative and find a distributor to whom they can sell in bulk. Against his better judgment, Jesse approaches Krazy 8's replacement as a drug wholesaler, a big time operator named Tuco who doesn't quite do business the way he had expected. It's left to Walt to sort it all out, telling Tuco his name is Heisenberg. Walt's having a hard time dealing with his chemo and is frequently ill. DEA agent Hank traces the gas mask they found in the desert to Walt's high school and makes an arrest. Written by garykmcd

The blast in Tuco's office is powerful enough to propel the air conditioners onto the streets below, yet Walter who is right under the explosion suffers nothing more than a bloodied nose. See more »


[first lines]
Walter H. White: Let's get something straight. This, the chemistry, is my realm. I am in charge of the cooking. Out there on the street, you deal with that. As far as our customers go, I don't want to know anything about them. I don't wanna see them, I don't wanna hear from them. I want no interaction with them whatsoever. This operation is you and me, and I'm the silent partner. You got any issues with that?
Jesse Pinkman: Whatever, man.
Walter H. White: No matter what happens, no more bloodshed. No violence.

No More Bloodshed
18 March 2013 | by MoviecruiserSee all my reviews

From the beginning to the end of this episode I was sitting there not knowing what to expect. But it was amazing. It had its sad moments and its bad *** moments. The great thing about this show is it always has you guessing. The best part is you will always guess wrong. Not to mention the subtle foreshadowing I always seem to miss until the episode is done. The show excels in keeping you involved from beginning to end; making every moment and every episode relevant. It is shown clearly in this episode what a man will do when he has got nothing to lose. This time, it's Walter's turn to show them who's boss. A great semi-finale to the great Walter White who continues to Break Bad.

10/10 for me!
