Desperate to pay for his cancer treatments and to secure his family's financial security, Walt discovers a new sense of fearlessness. He teams with former student, now drug dealer Jesse Pinkman (Paul) to use his scientific knowledge for financial gain, but soon finds he's trapped in a sinister world of drugs and crime. Breaking Bad will return for its fourth season on July 17th.
