Watch "Breaking Bad" season 5 episode 13, "To'hajiilee"" will air on Sunday, September 8 at 9PM E/T on AMC. If you can't watch the premiere episode Sunday night, you can visit the official AMC site for free the night after the episode airs and watch the entire episode online free. "Breaking Bad" returns for the second part of its final season after a break of almost a year. This is the 13th episode of the season with three episodes left in part 2 of season 5. With only a few episodes left before the finale a major conflict is forming as Hank allies with Jesse against Walt.
"Breaking Bad" season 5 episode 12 "Rabid Dog" showed that Hank was not beaten. He stopped Jesse from burning down Walter's house and basically got Jesse to confess on camera to all the crimes that he and Walter had committed. Of course that still isn't enough to put Walter away, it's just Jesse's word against Walter's. Jesse is a known criminal and junkie while Walter is considered a sick man and a generally genial pillar of the community. Knowing that there is almost no chance that Jesse's words would be believed Hank decides to set up a sting operation. He gets Jesse to go meet with Walter while wearing a wire so that Walter explains to Jesse why he did what he did with Brock. Unfortunately for Hank, Jesse mistakes an intimidating looking man standing near Walt as someone that Walter has brought over to kill him so he decides not to meet with him and makes a phone call to Walter threatening him. Jesse then tells Hank that he has a plan to deal with Walter.
"Breaking Bad" season 5 episode 13 To'hajiilee" will likely see Walter putting out a hit on either Jesse or Hank, possibly both. We saw Walter calling Todd's uncle so we know that he wants him to kill someone. The last time Walter called Todd's uncle we were treated to an epic montage of Nazi prison shivvings. Walter still seemed reluctant to have Jesse killed, but like Jesse said, he has a zero tolerance policies on threats.
"Breaking Bad" season 5 part 2 episode 13 -- "To'hajiilee": Things heat up for Walt in unexpected ways. (The title is the name of a Navajo reservation in New Mexico.)
The title could suggest the location of the episode but that might be too obvious. The "Breaking Bad" season 5 episode 13 promo for "To'hajiilee" is particularly uninformative this week.
"To'hajiilee" is "a non-contiguous section of the Navajo Nation lying in parts of western Bernalillo, eastern Cibola, and southwestern Sandoval counties in New Mexico, USA, west of the city of Albuquerque," according to Wikipedia. Albuquerque is, of course, the town where Breaking Bad is set.
"Breaking Bad" season 5 episode 13 "To'hajiilee" says that circumstances change for Walter. That could have something to do with Todd. In earlier episodes we saw Todd easily and casually dropping both Walter and Jesse's name to people while telling stories of their past exploits. Could a cartel or some other force be interested in Walter? Lydia has used Todd to take over the meth operation and wiped out her competition. Could Lydia be someone who tips the scale in favor of, or against Walt? If she can get control of him, she can force him to start cooking his blue meth again which means big profits for her. Walter is in a vulnerable position right now, perhaps one of the most vulnerable we've seen. Lydia might try to leverage that into an advantage. Calling Todd's uncle might mean that Walter will end up owning favors.
The upcoming "Breaking Bad" season 5 episode synopsis could give us some hints for what to expect:
"Breaking Bad" season 5 part 2 episode 14 -- "Ozymandias": Everyone copes with radically changed circumstances. (Named after the Shelley poem about the inevitable fall of kings and empires.)
"Breaking Bad" season 5 part 2 episode 15 -- "Granite State": Events set in motion long ago move toward a conclusion. (The Granite State is New Hampshire. Is this when we catch up to the events seen in "Live Free or Die"?)
"Breaking Bad" season 5 part 2 episode 16 -- "Felina": The series finale. ("Felina" is an anagram for "finale" and also is related to the word feline.)
Ultimately, we will have to wait for the "Breaking Bad" season 5 part episode 13 "To'hajiilee" to see how Walter handles Jesse. It seems doubtful that Walter will be inclined to let him live at this point. Be sure not to miss the episode on Sunday, September 8 at 9PM E/T on AMC. If you do miss it you should be able to watch the show online for free the following night on the official site.
