It was Gus ‘ attempt to sway Walt’s allegiance away from Jesse, which obviously didn’t pan out.
Walt invites Jesse to get revenge on both of the most prominent people in his life. “We wanted worlds to collide, characters who didn’t really belong together being forced to spend time with each other by the monstrous behavior of Walter White,” showrunner Vince Gilligan said in an interview with Vulture.
So was walts main motive in killing Gus saving Hank? Gus would have killed Walt, his family and even Jesse after he got another lab guy to learn the recipe. Gus was ruthless and would never leave any loose ends or liabilities for long. Walt knew this.
They want the money he generates to keep flowing and need the distrabution network he has built, but as we know Gus is a man who is deeply caculated and he hardly makes a move without a good reason that betters his pocket or position.
Gus initially was skeptical of keeping Walter as a cook, because he felt Walter was too risky and undisciplined. Gus highly respected Walt and thus didn’t do anything to Jesse. Later, Walt manipulated Jesse into killing Gale, which obviously made Gus even more angry, as Gus wanted to kill off Jesse and hire Gale back.

Due to the show’s popularity, Los Pollos Hermanos has appeared on numerous occasions and locations as a real-life pop-up restaurant.
Judging by the series as a whole, Gus only intended death for Walt after he ran over his dealers, breaking the peace to save Jesse’s life, who was still considered a lowly junkie by Gus . Remember when Jesse was talking about how unfair the deal was at the lab on season 3 episode 8.
Why didn’t Jesse kill Walt ? Because he was the bigger man. Jesse did not have to kill , he knew he had already taken everything Walter White cherished, his money, his family, and his manhood, and he did it without killing one person.
