The Entire Breaking Bad Story Finally Explained
- Published: 10 October 2019
- Over the course of five seasons, Breaking Bad told the tale of Walter White, a man whose cancer diagnosis drove him to cook and sell meth. Now, we’re going to dig deep and explain the story of the timid chemistry teacher who finally broke bad.
In the first episode of Breaking Bad, high school chemistry teacher Walter White is diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. After finding out from Hank Schrader, his DEA agent brother-in-law, how profitable cooking meth can be, Walt teams up with a former student named Jesse Pinkman to cook meth so that he can make enough money to provide for his family after he's gone.
Unfortunately, Jesse and their batch of newly cooked meth are snatched up by a pair of dealers named Krazy-8 and Emilio. The two force Jesse to take them to the RV where Walt and Jesse have been cooking, presumably to kill the two and to take their materials. Walt poisons the two of them, but Krazy-8 survives long enough that Walt is forced to kill the meth dealer himself.
Soon after, Walt's family pushes him to pursue chemotherapy rather than just accept his fate. Ultimately, Walt agrees to seek treatment, even though the cost would put his family even further into debt.
Walt and Jesse make their partnership official with a simple division of labor: Walt will cook, while Jesse will sell.
Jesse reaches out to a local crime boss, Tuco Salamanca, to see if he'd be interested in buying larger quantities of the pair's high-quality meth. To put it simply, negotiations do not go well. Walt moves in to handle Tuco, using his chemistry skills to prepare an explosion to intimidate Tuco. Impressed and amused, Tuco agrees to work with Walt and Jesse.
