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

Trivia

Ken's BMW convertible is the E36 model whose production ceased in 1999, so it is at least nine years old. Also the 318i was the cheapest 3 series convertible of that series with the smallest engine. Owner Ken seems to be doing a lot better in his own mind than in actual reality. See more »

Goofs

When Walt blows up the BMW with the KEN WINS license plate, Walt pops the hood and then short circuits the battery. In BMW 318i models (the one in the scene), the batteries are actually located in the trunk of the car, instead of the front as shown in this scene. 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.
