Also a badass scene.. When Nacho said he needs to get back up to go after the Espinoza's and the two cousins look at each other, and slowly walk in guns blazing and take them all out.
I love reading some of the wild theories people on /r/bettercallsaul have about the show.
Here's one I don't think I've seen anywhere yet: What if the call Jimmy/Saul needs Francesca to answer is from Kim and the reason we didn't see her during the Breaking Bad era is because Kim has been in prison for the many crimes she committed (and Jimmy listed) in getting Huell off the hook? Or from some upcoming illicit activity in trying to get Kevin at Mesa Verde the design changes he wants?
Also, I'm curious to know what everyone thinks the fate of the Germans will be. It's pretty clear they won't all make it back to Germany safely after the super lab is built. Does Gus have all of them killed? Just Werner? Does Mike have to take a full measure against Kai? Does Lydia play some role (thus explaining Mike's utter contempt for her in BB)?
Badass yes. Fit the show? Eh?
That was the first time I was kind of disappointed in Gilligan. Two pissed off guys with guns take out an entire compound? In broad daylight? In what appears to be an area with people (no cops called?)? The show has always been very calculated even with the twins. This move was uncharacteristic. The last time they went off half-cocked (or should I say the next time?) they get owned by an overweight DEA agent.
Mike is cold as ice. The scenes with Werner had a No Country For Old Men feel.
For a smart guy, Werner was incredibly naive.
Jimmy? It’s saul Goodman!
But Kim's look at him gloating about how he fooled the board after she was wiping away tears and looking at what she thought was a sincere Jimmy McGill.
Many pieces coming together and one of course being the jump to "It's all good man." But the other is Kim. What the in the heck happens with Kim? It has to be that she realizes Jimmy is incapable of redemption right? That everything he does is a scam and has a motive?
The other is Nacho. I'm interested to see where his character goes, especially since he seems to have a moral compass.
I'd also agree with Mike making the turn. Is all I kept thinking with Werner was half-measures and full-measures. Mike knew he had to take a full-measure once Gus said to stay put (essentially coming to kill Werner) but he was not all-in until he pulled that trigger.
I cannot stand how TWD has been ruined in order to bleed everything from it. BB and Gilligan figured it out in that they ended the show on top and left people wanting more. Then they simply started a spin off in BCS with their best characters (Jimmy, Mike, Gus, Salamanca).
And lastly, you cannot tail Mike.
I watched the first episode last night. Because I usually binge it, I get a little confused with the timeline when I start back up.
From what I can tell, Walt hasn't started making meth yet, right? But it can't be too far away. I'm assuming they will allude to it when it starts showing up on the streets.
