-->--'''Tio Salamanca'''


Tuco, having abducted Walt and Jesse at gunpoint, takes them with him to the residence of his uncle, Hector "Tio" Salamanca, near the Mexican border, where he tells them about his plan: namely, that he wants to bring Walt with him south of the border to forcibly employ him as his main meth cook. Walt is, of course, not thrilled about this, and neither is Jesse, as Tuco sees him as an expendable part of the plan.

Walt is, of course, not thrilled about this, and neither is Jesse, as Tuco sees him as an expendable part of the plan.



Walt now tries to sneak the poisoned meth into Tuco's food, but Tuco's uncle, Tio, interferes and knocks the plate off the table. Noticing his uncle's strange behavior, Tuco tries to ask him what is wrong, and Tio, despite being old, wheelchair-bound, and only capable of communicating by ringing a bell, manages to convey to Tuco that Walt and Jesse are up to no good. Furious, Tuco grabs Jesse and drags him outside, overhearing Walt's protests and pleas for Jesse's life. Pointing a gun at Jesse, Tuco demands that Walt tell him what he is up to. Noticing that Jesse is about to pick up a rock, Walt attracts Tuco's attention by admitting, with no shortage of spite, that he tried to poison him, and tells him through gritted teeth, "You're an insane, degenerate piece of filth. And you deserve to die."

* BluntYes: Jesse gives this response upon Walt's aghast at him suggesting that the cancer-ridden teacher [[HeroicSacrifice sacrifice himself]] to off Tuco so that at least the young and healthy Jesse will live. Walt is less than amused.



--->'''Jesse:''' You got the C-bomb, alright? You're as good as checked out anyway. You should be all "sacrificial", and stuff. So why don't you go step on a grenade, yo?\\

* WhamEpisode: Hank shoots Tuco, the established BigBad of the show, with Walt and Jesse about fifty yards away.

At the DEA's offices, Hank briefs his colleagues on the status of Tuco's crumbling drug empire; the DEA has managed to effectively dismantle the organisation, and only needs to arrest one last suspect, Tuco himself. Despite ensuring his team that they will find him, he privately remarks to Gomez that Tuco in all probability is already out of their reach across the border. Hank then goes to meet with the rest of Walt's family, who are searching for Walt after he went missing last night. Hank, knowing that Walt has had contact with Jesse in the past, decides to check up on him and ask if he knows where to find Walt.

Added DiffLines:

* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: Tuco unloads an entire M4 magazine at Hank and doesn't hit him once, Hank manages to shoot him in the head [[CombatPragmatist while he was reloading]]. Justified because at the time Tuco had a severe gunshot wound to the abdomen, and was probably high on drugs as well. He was also blazing away on fully automatic from the hip while jerking around, while Hank actually crouched and used his gun's sights. No surprise he hit nothing but air.
* InsaneTrollLogic: Tuco comes to the conclusion that Gonzo was a DEA informant, with no other evidence beyond the fact that Gonzo has been acting "pouty" over the death of No-Doze and hasn't been able to get in contact with him for two days.
* InternalReveal: Hank and later Skyler realize Walt must have a second cell phone after learning there was no record of the call to his phone from [[Recap/BreakingBadS2E1SevenThirtySeven the previous episode]].


* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: Walt shows he cares about Jesse as he tries to keep him from being killed by Tyco during the episode.

* AxCrazy: Tuco.

to:

* AxCrazy: Tuco. Tuco is ''slightly'' calmer, though just as threatening, as he keeps Walter and Jesse hostage with plans to get them all to Mexico to continue the drug trade. Even so, he takes an assault rifle to the surrounding wildlife and almost kills Jesse when Tio says he doesn't trust him.

* HumiliationConga: The circumstances leading up to Tuco's death. He gets bested by Jesse and Walt, shot and left to bleed to death, then finally killed by Hank with a gunshot to the head despite carrying an assault rifle.


* InsistentTerminology: Jimmy points out to the officers that Daniel's "squat cobbler" videos aren't pornography, they're ''fetish videos''. Though this isn't so much Jimmy being nitpicky as the fact that the laws around producing actual pornography for money are a lot more stringent than those relating to fetish videos.
