Storyline

At a briefing, Hank presents his theory that Albuquerque has a new kingpin. At a barbecue, Skyler breaks down and Walter reveals to Hank, Marie and Walter, Jr. that he has cancer. Walter, Jr. doesn't respond well. The hole in Jesse's ceiling raises some questions. The meth is also making Jesse extremely paranoid. Skyler makes Walter go see a top oncologist. The doctor says it is possible to cure Walter, but it will be expensive. Walter does not want to risk leaving Skyler in debt. When Walter tries parking his car outside MESA, a narcissistic yuppie in his shiny, expensive, convertible BMW with the vanity plate "KEN WINS" cuts into a just-vacated square Walter was waiting for to park into. Ken's just messed with the wrong man. Written by Toni Tapola, Finland

Goofs

When Skyler and Walt are speaking with Dr. Delcavoli about Walt's cancer and possible treatments, the audio of Walt asking about possible side effects was dubbed over, however the original track can be heard faintly underneath, with Walt adding a "Hmm..." (which matches his facial expression) before asking his question. See more »

Great episode...
16 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Breaking Bad continues to surprise me after every episode, and this was no exception.

The episode explored the family life of Jesse, which in all was very heartbreaking to see how a family is destroyed because of a drug habit. Walter also confessed about his problem, and it ran emotions through the house. Like always, the show continues to be a drama but very well written humor put in, like the ending of the episode. This is a joy to watch, and along with that Aaron and Bryan give great performances that revolve the show and give it what is needed. I will diligently continue to watch.
