  • Because She Loves Jesse, Jane Helps Him Blackmail Walt For His Share Of The Profits  on Random Things About Jane From ‘Breaking Bad’

    (#9) Because She Loves Jesse, Jane Helps Him Blackmail Walt For His Share Of The Profits

    Once they've officially gotten high together, Jesse and Jane are all in. Jesse is so strung out one night that he doesn't hear Walt banging at his front door. Walt needs the stashed crystal in Jesse's apartment for a deal with kingpin Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito). Walt breaks in to try and find it. When Jesse finally wakes up, he thinks an intruder has taken the stuff. Due to Jesse's inability to wake up, Walt winds up missing the birth of his daughter.

    In the season's 12th episode, "Phoenix," Walt alone is able to deliver his million dollars' worth of product to Gus. The proud dad then goes to meet his new baby girl, Holly. 

    Of course, Jesse still wants his cut of the money, which comes in at a hefty $480,000. Walt refuses to give it to him - namely because Jesse nearly sabotaged the deal in the first place. And Walt is rightly concerned that his partner in crime, with access to that much cash, will wind up on the road to permanent destruction.

    The following day, Jane's dad sees the paraphernalia littering Jesse's apartment. Donald has been aggressively trying to keep his daughter clean for over a decade. He threatens to call the cops. But Jane promises him, pleads with him, that she will enter treatment the following day. It's a big lie. Jane calls Walt to get Jesse's half of the money. When Walt refuses, Jane resorts to new methods. She tells him she knows everything about his life, from his job as a high school chemistry teacher, to his family, to the details of his business: "This is blackmail, Do right by Jesse. Tonight. Or I will burn you to the ground."

    At this point, Jane is ostensibly in charge of Jesse. He didn't want to strong-arm Walt. Even still, Walt hands off Jesse's money to Jane that same day. She even goes so far as to further threaten Walt, warning him that he can never be completely sure she won't one day tell the authorities. 

    Jane's scheme shows the sinister, manipulative side of her character. However, it's also obvious that this is simply the version of her when she's off the wagon. Walt sees Jane as a permanent liability who knows too much.

  • Jane Was A Recovering Addict Who Had Her Life Back Together on Random Things About Jane From ‘Breaking Bad’

    (#1) Jane Was A Recovering Addict Who Had Her Life Back Together

    Breaking Bad viewers are first introduced to Jane Margolis (Krysten Ritter) in Season 2's fifth episode, "Breakage." She is a beautiful 26-year-old who serves as the landlord in a small duplex apartment building owned by her father. She rents out her vacant next-door apartment to Jesse (Aaron Paul), whose parents have just kicked him out of the house.

    The morning after Jesse and Jane hook up for the first time, Jesse asks her about smoking pot. Jane's reaction is to leap out of bed. She tells Jesse she has been clean for over 18 months on her way to recovery. Jane works as a tattoo artist and seems dedicated to rebuilding her life.

  • Walt Ultimately Lets Jane Perish After Sneaking Into Her Duplex on Random Things About Jane From ‘Breaking Bad’

    (#11) Walt Ultimately Lets Jane Perish After Sneaking Into Her Duplex

    In Season 2's penultimate episode, "Phoenix," Walt goes to a bar and strikes up a conversation with a man who - unbeknownst to him - is none other than Jane's dad, Donald. Walt finds himself confiding in this stranger, telling him about his "nephew" who is in trouble. Donald tells Walt he can never give up on family. It's enough of a sentiment to bring Walt back to Jesse's apartment, convinced he can help him with his habit. 

    Walt lets himself into Jesse's apartment to find that both him and Jane are passed out on the bed. Paraphernalia is scattered around them. He tries to wake Jesse up, as Jane falls onto her back. She starts to throw up and begins to choke, all while remaining unconscious.

    At first, Walt looks like he is going to help her. Then, he reconsiders. We can see the wheels turning in his head: With Jane out of the picture, Walt can get Jesse back on board with his burgeoning empire. He can also use Jane's tragedy as a way to get Jesse clean. In any case, it's clear to Walt that Jane knows too much about his business anyway. She is, unequivocally, a threat.

    As Jane struggles to breathe, Walt chooses to do nothing. He lets her choke on her own vomit and perish. It's the exact moment in which Walter White officially transforms from a mild-mannered, terminally ill chemistry teacher who only cooks crystal to leave money for his family, to Kingpin Heisenberg. The Mr. Chips-to-Scarface transformation has officially commenced.

    There were a million ways Breaking Bad's writers could have gotten rid of Jane. Vince Gilligan acknowledged both the horror and necessity of the scene. He explained

    Because, for my money, what takes the cake for being an evil moment was that scene. This was a young girl who did not, in my opinion, deserve that awful fate. Walter standing passively by and letting it happen feels more monstrous in a way. Whether or not it's more shocking, it feels more monstrous.

    In fact, the scene was so emotional for Bryan Cranston that it made him weep:

    Even as I say it now, I get a little choked up about it because as a parent, that's the only thing that scares me. That's the risk - there's my daughter choking to death and it scared the hell out of me...  Once they called cut, "Everyone's going, that's great." And I'm a weeping mess. Fortunately, you have your family around you, and I went to Anna Gunn and she held me.

    Adding even more sorrow to Jane's demise is that it took place on Valentine's Day.

  • Jane Begins Using Again, And Introduces Heroin To Jesse on Random Things About Jane From ‘Breaking Bad’

    (#7) Jane Begins Using Again, And Introduces Heroin To Jesse

    Toward the end of "Mandala," the whole game changes for Jane and Jesse. Jane has once again found her taste for H, completely leaving her sobriety behind.

    Jesse is still despondent over Combo's passing. Jane presents a pair of hypodermic needles. She adeptly concocts a speedball, mixing crystal and heroin. Jesse injects it - his first time with H - and the high is instant and intense. He euphorically floats up, up, and away, the narcotic consuming his body.

    At this point, there's no turning back.

  • Jane's Demise Leads To A Midair Collision And Jesse's Downward Spiral on Random Things About Jane From ‘Breaking Bad’

    (#12) Jane's Demise Leads To A Midair Collision And Jesse's Downward Spiral

    In the Season 2 finale, "ABQ," the audience finally finds out why that one-eyed pink teddy bear was floating in Walt's pool: It's a scorched remnant from a midair plane collision. 

    How could two planes possibly collide in midair? Here's how: Several weeks after Jane's passing, her distraught father Donald - an air traffic controller - returns to work. Still distracted by his grief, he makes the fatal mistake of calling a plane named JM21 "Jane Mike Two One" when he should have said, "Juliet Mike Two One." He realizes his grave error and attempts to correct himself, but it's too late. 

    The 737 commercial airliner Wayfarer 515 hits another plane in the air space above Walt's house in Albuquerque. The result of Donald's mistake - caused, indirectly yet inextricably, by Walt - is 167 casualties. 

    The dual incidents ultimately lead to Jesse's reckless delve back into his own habit. His intense grief over Jane is amplified because he feels responsible for her loss. Walt finds Jesse in a rundown drug den. He sobs to Walt, "I killed her. I loved her more than anything."

    In the Season 3 finale, "Full Measure," Walt uses his manipulative ways to convince Jesse that Gus Fring's chemist Gale (David Costabile) has to be eliminated. Jesse may have been a dealer and a user, but he was never violent. However, by that point, Walt is the only person left in Jesse's life - and he remains something of a father figure.

    Jesse walks into Gale's apartment with a loaded side arm. He looks the chemist square in the eyes. Jesse's hands shake, his eyes gush with heavy tears. Then, he pulls the trigger and shoots Gale in the face. It's a soul-crushing, life-changing moment for Jesse Pinkman.

  • She Understandably Lies To Her Dad About Jesse, Leading To Her Apology Girl Sketch  on Random Things About Jane From ‘Breaking Bad’

    (#5) She Understandably Lies To Her Dad About Jesse, Leading To Her Apology Girl Sketch

    In the Season 2 installment "Over," Jesse and Jane have settled into a steady relationship. At the beginning of the episode, Jesse cooks up a breakfast of huevos rancheros and the loving couple lie in bed together on a lazy day. Jane is flipping through a book of Jesse's superhero drawings - all of which sort of look like him - when she hears a knock on her apartment door.

    She leaps from the bed, sneaks out the back, and stealthily works her way back to her own apartment. The knock is from her father/landlord, Donald, who's in a state of constant concern over his daughter's past dependency issues. It's an uncomfortable moment when Jesse walks out of his place to introduce himself to Jane's dad. She panics and breaks Jesse's heart when she introduces him as just "the new tenant" and not her new boyfriend.

    Jesse later tells Jane how angry he is about the introduction, but Jane doesn't back down. She claims she was trying to protect him, and that she can't tell her perpetually worried father that she's hooking up with someone like Jesse. 

    Jesse drowns his sorrows in crystal. A piece of paper works its way under his door. Jane has drawn a self-portrait sketch of a female superhero named "Apology Girl." It's a gesture that not only makes Jesse happy but also shows that Jane can recognize and atone for her mistakes.
