After being arrested for selling blue meth, Badger is asked to identify his boss, known only as "Heisenberg." Jimmy is hired by Saul Goodman to pose as Heisenberg during a meeting with Badger while the two are being watched by the DEA. Officers Hank Schrader, Steven Gomez, and Getz witness a deal being done between Badger and Jimmy. Police quickly descend on the pair and arrest Jimmy, believing him to be Heisenberg.
After his arrest, Jimmy is not seen. However, Saul assures Jesse Pinkman and Walter White that he will find a flaw in the prosecution's case and Jimmy will be set free. ("")
