Having gotten away from Tuco, Walt and Jesse now have to get home and explain where they have been. Walt has a plan and they split up. He goes to a supermarket and takes off all of his clothes while walking around the aisles. He's hospitalized and claims to have no memory of where he's been for the last few days. Jesse returns to his house to clean out the basement and get rid of the RV. When the DEA also track him down, he claims that he's been shacked up with a prostitute for the weekend. The police don't believe him and think they know how to nail him: they bring in Tuco's uncle to identify him. With some of his problems now behind him, Walt is keen to start cooking again.

Very, Very Good!

The third episode in the second season of Breaking Bad is a step down from the previous episode, but it's still an incredible, fast-paced episode. This is an episode which I like to call a bridge episode. This is the connecting episode which connects one big event to another big event. That being said, it's still truly an entertaining episode.

In this episode, "Bit by a Dead Bee," after Walt and Jesse were able to escape Tuco, Walt has come up with a plan to explain their disappearance. Walt was decides to strip naked in a supermarket and claims he has dementia. Jesse returns to his house to get rid of all their equipment. Eventually, Jesse gets taken in and the cops don't believe his alibi of his connection with Tuco.

Overall, I've seen better episodes in this series but still, this episode is almost perfect. A great and a very much realistic episode especially when it comes to the suspicions of Skylar. This episode ends in a very good cliffhanger which foreshadows of what is to come. I rate this episode 9/10.
