    Just read the synopsis.  Why do I feel like we've already hit the high point this season?  Hoping to be proven wrong tonight.

    Damn great episode, Jimmy with the full on Walter White march at the end.

    Ok I'm starting #fuckjimmy.

    seriously? what was the point of the breakdown to the insurance agent other than to make problems for Chuck? Chuck was solidly in the rearview mirror
  • This show is getting really depressing now :'(

    I feel a serious gap growing between Kim and Jimmy. Also, Jimmy is down in the dumps and is lashing out (like when he raised Chuck's rates after the insurance company didn't let Jimmy cancel his policy). It's only been a few weeks into his suspension and shit's already this bad.

    Also, what was up with Mike's change of heart about helping the nerdy guy deal with Tuco?

    Call me a terrible person but I felt so happy for Jimmy in that moment. Finally a real fuck you to chuck, not just defense.

    I think Jimmy's reaction at the end of the episode and further fucking chuck is a juxtaposition against the place Kim came to bascially feeling guilty for tearing down a sick man, Jimmy is now walking down the path of Saul and I love it.

    Jimmy is going to become Saul Goodman to avoid paying higher insurance premiums..sounds right.

    Also RIP Nacho. Don't see him surviving the end of the season.

    He still feels bad about the guy he got killed. And the lady telling her story about her missing Husband pushed him to the edge to then go back to Nacho and make sure he would off Hector right. Or at least that's how I saw it.

    This episode really missed for me.

    I think the first 5 episodes were pumping more and more air into the balloon, and now it's just sputtering back out.  Very deflating.

    @Melia004 it's never a bad time for a Seinfeld clip!

    I think that the answer is that Chuck and Jimmy are both guys with questionable character. The problem with Chuck is he's oblivious to the fact that he's an asshole which makes him unbearable.

    Jimmy knows when he's doing questionable things and recognizes it like when he didn't want to show Kim the commercial at the end of the episode. The fact that he knows this about himself makes him easy to empathize with.

    I think Jimmy has a good heart but gives into the worst version of himself.

    Well Jimmy and Kim need to break up/separate. What we are seeing is most likely the beginning of the rift. We all know it has to happen, but it's gonna suck seeing it go down.

    In the end Mike is going to be Mike. I think the story the woman told him hit him close to home. The act of "not knowing" what happens to him would eat away slowly if he just disappeared. It was the same thing with Tuco, he was protecting Tuco because he saw the flaws in his plan immediately and knowing what he knew would again eat away at him if he didn't say anythrhing. Mike is a "protector" that's his job and he's good at it.
  • My least favorite epsidoe of the season thus far, however I still liked it a lot. Jimmy is getting desperate and this will most likely be a major factor leading to Saul the lawyer. Sad that it won't be back for two week though :(
  • AjasAjas Seattle, WA
    I guess the ultimate irony then is that Mike's granddaughter is left never knowing what happened to him.

    I don't remember exactly, but I think saul and Jessie met up with Walt, and we are led to believe that Walt had Mike's body with him to embarrel.

    Lawyer question.  Do you have to have malpractice insurance to practice?  If not, I imagine Jimmy partially becomes "Criminal" lawyer Saul Goodman to avoid paying it.  What criminal in their right mind would sue for malpractice with a guy like Saul Goodman leading their defense?  I know almost nothing about inner workings of the legal system, but it seems about right.

    I also think Jimmy is going to end up going to jail for a year after coming face to face with Chuck at or near the end of the season.  It would be a great time jump, and Jimmy could certainly build a clientele in prison.  Not to mention, his new type of clientele might love the fact that he's been to prison.  Was something like that ever mentioned in Breaking Bad?  I can't remember.

    Pretty sure he won't go to Jail. That would get him disbarred permanently.

    Are you sure?  From what I understand, it depends on the crime.  Now of course, is that part of the trial we just had?  Probably so, but this show has been really of the moment, and a year is crazy talk to get to "Criminal" Lawyer Saul without a time jump unless they want this thing to be 10 seasons, and to me, it would be weird to just time jump for the sake of it because again it's a very of-the-moment show.
  • HatorianHatorian Dagobah
    From reading up on the rules of disbarment. It's pretty much any act of breaching trust. A lawyer will be disbarred if he is considered untrustworthy. Every thing we know about Slippin Jimmy is about him being a con artist. So yes. The chances of him going to jail are from being a dishonest person. Which would get him disbarred.

    We've all been wondering where Kim was in the Breaking Bad era and thinking maybe she ended up in jail or some even suggested dead. I think she's just going to leave his ass. Watching her watching him was pretty telling. She's realized he's going through all of his money very quickly and it's only a matter of time until a big scheme of his will go wrong and he's screwed, taking her down with him. It feels too simple for a show, especially a show in this universe but if she's smart, she just needs to cut ties and leave this guy. I have to imagine in the Gene era, she's gone back to Kansas City and that's why he's got the KC lunchbox.
  • FYI - Better Call Saul is off next week (Memorial Day) and returns on June 5th.
  • Did A.Ron mean Jamestown? There is a series on sky in the UK. I don't watch it but I thought that might be what he was taking about. And I would be down from a gus spin off

    Gives the guys more time for house of cards; )

    I would have to give it to the writers for going that way with it. After all the Skyler White hate, I can imagine a desire to make sure that Kim actually leaves, avoiding Skyler's mistake.

    On Kim, here's my latest Official Prediction(tm):

    She starts sympathizing more with Chuck. Chuck ultimately figures out that she's involved in some of Jimmy's larceny and plays on her sympathies.

    As Jimmy/Saul gets more deeply involved with Gus and the cartels, Chuck uses Kim to expose him.

    The caper boils to the point where Kim's life is in danger, and so she uses the Disappearerer---er--er(tm), who JimmyKimmie meet through Francesca.

    Years later, Kim tracks down Cinnabon Gene and we have a happy ending for the couple. Whole Badverse ends on an up note.

    Until the pair are hunted down and killed by Jesse Pinkman and Kaylee Ehrmantrout in a webisode.

    On why Mike takes the job after talking to Anita, we came to the idea that the specific location her husband disappeared in is the trigger.  Mike might know that that's cartel territory and he might suspect that Hector had him killed for stumbling into it. So he takes the job so he can get that info from Nacho.

    I like the location of the samaritan. Won't be surprised if that's the angle.  But it seems like a stretch for Nacho to give him that info.  Seems more reasonable tho.
