I agree that Jesse is put in situations because of Walt, (Killing Gale is the first thing that comes to mind) but it's Jesse's fault that there was tension between Walt and Gus. Walt kept standing up for Jesse, and because Jesse was going to kill Gus's 2 henchmen who killed that boy, Walt ran them over which officially caused issues between Gus and Walt. Had Jesse not done anything, I think Gus and Walt would've been fine. The last scene Walt and Gus were in together before the scene out in the fields was with Jesse, Gus, Mike, Walt, and the 2 men to try and "keep the peace." Gus said, "If it weren't for this man and the respect I have for him, you would be dead." Then, Jesse has to do something stupid for Walt to murder the 2 guys, to have it become Gus vs. Walt.
Agreed with this, which is why I was sort of pissed at the scene right before Mike's death when he was talking about the great thing they had going with Fring, until Walt ruined it. Walt didn't ruin it at all, it was almost entirely Jesse/Gus.
