Seeing Jimmy help Chuck recover was nice to show the brotherly bond that these 2 used to have. I appreciate what the creators are trying to do but they're taking too long to do it. Everything here was executed beautifully and built up an incredible sense of tension for that shocking ending. Of course there are ways around that, which you can never rule out with the writers on this series, but my guess is they'll follow that path. The main Jimmy storyline was very good in this episode. He has spent his life doing the right thing only to always be overlooked in favour of his more likeable brother. We have seen how these 2 are officially a couple now, and we have a good understanding of these characters' morals.
The scenes before the court scene were great as they built up Chuck's hubris nicely, which made him insulting Kevin and Paige seem more realistic without it losing its power as a major mistake from Chuck. And yet Jimmy chose not to switch back the documents in the final moments of the episode when he could have. From this formerly capable team? He showed up when he did because I called him. Breaking Bad was always a somewhat realistic show, which almost never played purely by rule of cool. I really do like that the show still makes Jimmy relatable even though he is doing so many illegal things. It was a good showcase scene for Jimmy slowly becoming Saul, along with the other club scenes and the hilarious cucumber water scene.
Kim works very hard and gets Howard a good deal but still isn't taken out of doc review. Following up this scene was the commercial scene. The whole point of serialized television is that it can tell a longer, broader story than a movie. Ned Stark and Robert Baratheon were fostered by Jon Arryn. And Jimmy just decides stuff and damn the consequences.
The opening scene was another brilliant flashback between the 2 brothers which once again added some more depth to their relationship. I can't imagine not wanting to watch the next episode after this scene. When he discovered that he alienated them, he confessed to everything over a hot mic. I'll bring you something um, roast beef, no tomato, Italian on the side. And I knew Jimmy had made a big mistake when he confessed, not out of rage like Surette erroneously believes , but out of love. She absolutely stole the show this episode and her plot line carried the story in such a magnificent way.
The Good: This was another very solid and very enjoyable episode of Better Call Saul. Conclusion: This was a splendid season finale that delivered a lot of powerful and climactic moments which set up next season very well. It feels like a cheap cop out for the writers to revert on that. Kim has been demoted to doc review by Howard which frustrates Jimmy. Also, I loved how every detail just slowly added to the intense laughter I was giving off.
Anyone see the little preface to the show proper? Best Moment: I really liked the opening sequence. That's what makes their relationship so intriguing and the show so exciting. But I think it peaked at the perfect time when Kim sided with Jimmy over Chuck and completely called him out for being a terrible brother. I got bored with it toward the end of season 2 maybe i will come back it just didn't keep my interest. The radiologist said everything looks normal with Charles' head and spine, so we took his neck collar off.
While I didn't dislike his scenes, they were a little slow paced and dull at times. But, yes It's the truth. That Jimmy would spill all? Our latest sidebar pic was submitted by the incredible. I'll be the only McGill carrying the family name. I enjoyed seeing Chuck call him out for it during the meeting and it was nice to see Jimmy cover up his tracks very well. It also seems that this episode will kick things up a notch for this season.
It also ended the episode on a hilarious note with the destruction of the cup holder. That's not what it sounded like. Chuck constantly rebuffing Jimmy was fantastic and I loved seeing Chuck continuously criticize Jimmy at ever possible chance. And why does he want Mike specifically? In Chuck's case, gravely disabled would be the main reason for being hospitalized and if he could argue that he has access to food, shelter, and clothing - in addition to being able to utilize those things either on his own or with help which can easily be confirmed in his case through Ernie and Howard , then he could no longer be held. Mnh, you have to turn off the lights. In the main plot, I really enjoyed the follow up to the cliffhanger from last episode. For those who say nothing ever happens in Better Call Saul, I will say that this season has developed the characters an absolute ton in just 10 episodes, whereas other shows would take seasons to accomplish this much with its characters.
Lastly, I was happy to see this show still continuing to provide laughs even in darker episodes. Chuck only seems to care about himself and his self-loathing while Jimmy at least does what he does because he actually wants to help other people, in addition to himself. And a well-edited piece is superior than one that drifts all over the place ahem, Lost again. It was enough reality-stretching watching Mike challenge Hector and a bunch of his cronies and getting away with it. Michael McKean is just too good. Chuck was the only person that kept Jimmy in check, and called him out for the numerous times he has broken the law despite being a lawyer. Would you get your work out, please? He hides his venomous evil under a veneer of superiority.
