A business partnership, looking for someone who can share the business load is a big decision. Jesse jumped in to business with his chemistry teacher, hesitantly, but knowingly, blackmailed and looking for a father-figure, since he is estranged from his own parents because of his meth drug use.Walter becomes a brow beating, judging and perpetually disappointed, mentally abusive father figure for Jesse.
Meth Business partnership
The reasons were simple, complimentary skill sets, the hard driving synergy that Walt could create capital from their venture. This state of mind leads Walter away from his marriage and his wife, Skyler to have an affair.
Business deals are like marriages, work involves handling the volatile mix. Jesse wants out of the meth business, and lacks an exit strategy that provides for him to walk away, with cash in tow. Walter has changed for the worst. In the beginning the audience sympathizes with the chemistry teacher Walter White but over time we learn to sympathize with Jesse and that he still has a heart. Walter on the other hand has grown heartless and cold. Walt has no morals
Jesse was just a suburban kid in pain and misery and mattered to no one. Killing Gale was the last of Jesses’ innocence.
Jesse now fears Walter
Let’s face it, Walter should not have left his own company, “Gray Matter Technologies” to become a teacher. Not to mentions selling his portion of the company for only $5,000. Gretchen and Elliot make a fortune off of Walter’s work and his unhappiness as a teacher and the money situation brought about the inoperable lung cancer and leads him to thoughts of making money by dealing meth. The man, White did research that helped the technology team win a Nobel Peace Prize. There is more to his talent than chemistry teacher turned meth cook.
The seed gets planted when Walter is surprised how much money is recovered from meth drug bust on his 50th birthday
The cancer issue hasn’t even come about yet. It’s all on Walter and the money he should have had. But the very next day he finds out he has terminal lung cancer with maybe two years to live.
Could Walter be saved from this bad dream
A second opinion on his cancer diagnosis maybe. Walter gets into the meth business over his head almost immediately. Walter is embracing criminal activity.
After the shootout
Walter throws Jesse Pinkman under the bus. a suffering Pinkman who has been hiding under the car, is dragged out by the extremists who beat Jesse to a pulp. Now Jesse is being held captive by the Nazi racists in a meth lab and forced to cook for them. This is a no win situation for Jesse, will he make it out alive?
