With the rapid improvement in his medical condition, Walt's doctors now recommend surgery as the final step to making him cancer free. It will all cost $170,000 however. Walt and Jesse have another problem when one of their dealers is shot on the street and Jesse believes someone is trying to take over. With only Skinny left as a dealer, Jesse and Walt have to find a solution to selling their product. Their lawyer-partner, Saul Goodman, suggests they get someone more experienced in the trade to help them out with the large quantities they have on hand. Jesse finally tells Jane, a recovering drug addict, what he does for a living. Skyler's doctor recommends that she have a C-section and they schedule the birth for the following week. At work however, she discovers her boss has been fiddling with the accounts. Written by garykmcd

Amazing Episode!
14 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the eleventh episode in the second season of Breaking Bad and it's even better than the last episode. I'm getting really excited for the season finale, especially the cliffhanger the episode ended in. This episode is more action-packed and has plenty of amusing moments featured throughout.

In this episode, "Manadala," after one of their dealers is found dead and another one quits, Walt and Jesse's drug empire begins to fall apart. Meanwhile, Jesse finally tells Jane what he does for a living. Finally, Skylar learns she is about to give birth and finds out her boss has been stealing from the company.

Overall, this is a very good episode. With only 2 more episodes left in the season, I eagerly anticipate what's next. My favorite scenes are when Skylar impersonates Marilyn Monroe and when Jesse feels the full effects of a drug. I rate this episode 9/10.
