3. Season 5 Episode 14 — "I watched Jane die"
Yeah, but this. Moment. Right. Here. The top 3 were a tough choice because they’re all truly memorable, but this one just hurts me to my core. This is where the show takes a quick turn from dark to holy fuck will there ever be light again?
Let’s put things into perspective. Jesse lost his first love, Jane. He lost all his money. He watched Todd kill a kid. He’s no longer with Andrea. His parents disowned him. Just before this firefight Jesse was satisfied with his life knowing Walt was going to prison. That all went away after the firefight. Now his mentor/partner is giving him up to the Neo-Nazis for “questioning” (aka torture). Jesse is still fighting though and Walt sees this so he crushes that little bit of hope left.
What does it for me is Walt’s face just before he tells Jesse looks sorry. Like he’s about to apologize. Then he throws the most evil curveball in history and proves that he truly is the devil.
