I wouldn't be surprised if McKean won himself an Emmy for his performance last episode.

And for a traditional comedic actor.

Don't forget Gordon Seedling the INS agent from Coneheads. Lol

Great performance, but not as good as when Mike spoke about "killing" his son. That's on the all-time list.

Good call on the Coneheads Irish.

I did not think we'd see Lydia (or the laundry facility) in Better Call Saul, but it makes sense. I was happy to see the Gus/Mike/Salamancas story line return after being absent last week. For some reason their half of show interests me more than Chuck and Jimmy.

Honestly, the Jimmy McGill story just runs on too long. But, that's given the fact this is Better Call Saul rather than "Breaking Bad: Before Walt". But, seeing how it all comes together is interesting. I, too, didn't expect the laundry, or at least this early. And Lydia as well was a shock. I wasn't thinking her position with the company would include "Realtor".

Another quality episode last night. We see where Saul came about now, can't wait to see what happens with Chuck and Kim.

According to this fan wiki (http://breakingbad.wikia.com/wiki/Lydia_Rodarte-Quayle) Lydia is "Head of Logistics" for Madrigal during the time of Breaking Bad. It's possible that in 2003 (which is when this week's episode is to have taken place) she was a lower level logistics manager responsible for Los Pollos Hermanos' shipping operations. Perhaps she caught wind of what Gus was doing--or Gus brought Lydia into his trust--and she will use her position at Madrigal to buy the laundry.

Well, that makes some sense. But, if she does know he's 'up to something', why, and how? And is Gus letting her linger because she has blackmail? Or he needs her? At the time, he's not exporting. And importing is done on his own trucks (which would not be the little box trucks making cross-border several hundred mile trips, either, but that's a minor quibble). It could be THIS is how they get hooked up to do business and this is just the first contact.

But, other than selling him the property/leasing the property, what exactly is going to get them to cross paths into the drug trade? We know Madrigal makes the commercial-grade air purifier, so it is possible that he places the order and being she's based in the southwest, her terminal or facility comes into contact with that freight shipment, and realizes it's going to a laundry and investigates, sticks her foot in the door to 'help out' with what he needs.

Just another thing for BSC to work on explaining.


As for how Saul Goodman starts, this was pretty entertaining. My guess he gets so popular AS Goodman he changes his name legally before his suspension is up, and just goes to Saul Goodman, Esq as a cover for some of the seedier things he's been doing during his year off (thanks to Mike among others), AND we still need to know what happens to Kim.

Marriage was hinted at in BB, so it would make sense this would be the leadup during his suspension.

But wrote for the show longer as well as many comedy movies.

It must take Gus a few years to build the meth lab and get all the equipment together. It does seem early for that to show up.

I think it just confirmed that Lydia was in on the whole operation from the start. She supplies Gus the chemicals and likely all the lab stuff as well. IIRC, Hank links everything together through Madrigal.

Loose strings coming together. Great episode, not as great as last weeks but entertaining nonetheless.

I'm VERY curious to see where the Nacho/Hector dynamic takes us. Nacho is an interesting character, and is one of the bad guys you root for because they show him having a conscious. Him sewing into his hand and keeping that pill? A turncoat to Gus? Gus HAS to be the one that poisons Hector in some fashion so he can torment him while he sits in a nursing home right? Is the pill Nacho hid with his foot too obvious?

One thing we know for sure is we never see Nacho, Kim, and Chuck in BB so getting to that point wand understanding why will be interesting.
