Their first aborted drug deal leaves Walt and Jesse to dispose of a pair of corpses, while Skyler suspects that her husband is up to no good.
Season One – Episode Two: “Cat’s in the Bag…”
Walt and Jesse (Aaron Paul) attempt to tie up loose ends. The desperate situation gets more complicated with the flip of a coin. Walt’s wife, Skyler (Anna Gunn), becomes suspicious of Walt’s strange behavior.
Now that his initial foray into the world of drug dealing has ended in the deaths of Krazy-8 and Emilio, Walt is no longer sure that he has what it takes to be Jesse’s partner. While he’s determined to end the arrangement just as soon as they dispose of the corpses, things take an unexpected turn when Krazy-8 slowly comes to life. Storing their makeshift motor home drug lab at Jesse’s, Walt heads home to plan his next move. However, after Jesse calls to demand that he take care of their unfinished business now, Skyler suspects that her husband is up to something. And with Skyler looking to satisfy her curiosity, Walt arrives at Jesse’s just in time to stop Krazy-8 from wandering off.
Unaware that Skyler is hot on his trail, Walt prepares to use some powerful acid he swiped from school to get rid of Emilio’s corpse. Though Walt wonders if they could possibly persuade Krazy-8 to join their fledgling drug ring, once Jesse points out his penchant for deadly revenge, it becomes clear that they are going to have to finish him off, too. So, after using a motorcycle lock to make sure Krazy-8 stays put, Walt gets the task of killing him, leaving Jesse to dispose of Emilio. Meanwhile, when confronted by Skyler, Walt claims that Jesse is a local drug dealer who has been selling him marijuana.
After an unexpected driveway confrontation with Walt’s angry wife, Jesse decides to cut a few corners and use his upstairs bathtub to liquefy Emilio. Once Walt returns, Jesse takes him to task for having revealed too much to Skyler. But as the two are arguing, Jesse gets a harsh lesson in chemistry when the acid dissolves Emilio’s body, the tub, floor, and ceiling before depositing a gooey, bloody mess on his kitchen floor.
