I signed up for Netflix again just for this show and I wasn't disappointed. The acting and directing is great, and there is some truly heartbreaking moments with one of the new characters. I have a bit of a problem with some of the characters doing dumb things for reasons that aren't especially clear other than it adds to the drama, but they do just enough to make me believe that it isn't inconsistent behavior so I just kinda wave my hand at it. The money laundering problem solving is my favorite part of the show, so I hope this new development doesn't take away from that.
I think the open and close of the episode are closely related. Both have loved ones of Kim letting her down when she was expecting them to be there for her. Both spend a lot of time trying to convince her that it's no big deal and she's making too much of it. Both involve alcohol, but for different reasons. The cold open ended with Kim's mom giving up and driving home(presumably), but the ending concluded with Kim either doing the same or doubling down. I wonder if Kim will do the same and give up or maybe she later doubled down as a kid and never went back home. Either way, I'm seriously loving this season and it sucks for anybody that gave up on it. I think Rhea Seehorn is at the peak level of understanding her character and performing it on screen.

Breaking Bad had its fair share of these too, but I’ve done more toe-tapping this (and last season) than I would’ve liked. BCS is still a very, very good show, and I still think it’s worthy of Breaking Bad, but I have to agree with Aron... if it had been 4 (or so) seasons as opposed to 6, it arguably could’ve reached that next level.
