That last scene with Mike shooting the shoe above the truck was clever as f*ck, it blows my mind how clever these scenes are and how well they work with the story, it was a lucky shot I want to say but still, Mike is just too good at what he's doing.

 

Glad to see some familiar faces too, I wanted to see Victor and Tyrus, but now these small but smart cameos just keep on coming, I love that. Also that scene between Mike and Gus was so cool, for a brief moment I felt like I was watching a whole new season of Breaking Bad.

An amazing eye for detail: the opening is a flash forward. The shoes that fall off the wire are the same shoes Mike threw up there during the episode (if you look closely you can see the bullet hole). It shows that time has passed by and that Hector's truck is replaced with Gus' truck, an indication Gus has taken over Hector's territory.

 

 

All in all another great episode. I'm loving the pacing this season has, things are really moving along.

Damn, that was a good episode.

The shell game Jimmy played with the phone battery was a great twist.

This is seriously one of the greatest episodes of television I've ever seen. It's just too much. I was shocked, almost in tears and was laughing all throughout this episode... holy sh*t.

It was great. Not as good at the season one episode when Chuck finally reveals he's the one that was holding Jimmy back, but still good.

Fantastic episode, I can't believe that such a show could've been one of my favorite show ever - I've never been really that interested in law stuff yet every second is a pleasure to watch, you never know what's going to happen with these characters.

As a Law Major, I loved this episode and how it centered around the courtroom. It was a wise decision to leave out the Mike/Gus storyline and let Jimmy have the spotlight. 

Great episode, it was good to see Jimmy finally getting a victory over his brother. After being put down by him for 2,5 seasons it was about time. Props to Michael McKean though, that emotional outburst at the end almost made me forget he's an actor and that he's acting. He really sold that performance. I wouldn't be suprised if he got an Emmy nomination for his work on Better Call Saul.

 

 

Good to see Huell is back as well. Saul's clique is forming nicely, now all we need is Kuby back. And props to him for the weight loss, he looked healthy.

This show just keeps getting better and better. It's one of those rare times in TV history that someone has been able to pull off a prequel to a popular TV series so well. The character of Saul Goodman was just perfectly set up for this. The only other character from BB that I think they can do this with is Gus; would love to see his accession to a drug-lord.

I second this. A story about Gus's early life would be a popular one. We already know how Hector Salamanca made it tough for Gus when he started out with pollos hermanos as a money laundering front and even went to the extent of killing his partner. A story bridging the gap of events before and after that part would be awesome.

Not sure we'll see Tuco ever again.

But, I was certain we'd never see Lydia in BCS, but there she was. I yelled, "it's the stevia lady!"

^I had forgotten that she and Gus were even connected. In Breaking Bad she was his supplier of methlamine but we didn't get to meet her until after the laundromat burned down and Gus was murdered.

After the courtroom's cathartic victory for Jimmy, it was hard seeing him get pushed down over and over this episode. I'd say he's definitely at his low point now. At least he managed to f*ck Chuck in the process, but I'm feeling it's going to bite him in the ass in the long run.

 

Mike was great though. Pouring concrete by day and dealing with shady business by night.

Kim was already feeling sh*tty about what happened in the courtroom, so for Jimmy to go that little extra and f*ck Chuck over even more isn't going to sit well with her at all. When she inevitably finds out what he's done, she is going to fall out with him big time and could be where she "goes" during BrBad.

 

I saw another theory saying that she could just fall asleep at the wheel from exhaustion and end up being killed in a car accident :(

 

God this was a hard episode to watch, watching Jimmy get kicked over and over again. His inner Saul is showing more and more.
