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

After Jesse tells Walt that Combo is dead, Jesse has a brief conversation with Skinny Pete about Combo. Skinny Pete says that Combo called him before he died saying that 'a couple of dudes were mad-dogging him trying to run him up off the corner'. However all Combo told Skinny on the phone was that he's 'up on 2nd and Hazeltine, getting eyeballed hard'. This isn't a continuity error, especially given Skinny Pete's propensity for inaccuracy and exaggeration when explaining things. Even at the base level, the two descriptions can mean the same thing to different people. See more
