Howard is such an asshole. However, Kim's vulnerability to Jimmy and his manipulations is curious. On the one hand she joins in on the sociopathic behavior and on the other finds it abhorrent. Just like real people.

I think Mike probably ratted Nacho out to Gus. He knows everything and doesn't really like him.

It looked like one of Gus' men saw Nacho throwing the pills in the river.

Given that Mike also wanted Hector gone, I don't think Mike would rat on Nacho.

Mike really doesn't seem like the rat type. And he alerted Nacho to the police investigation of the stolen baseball cards, as well as taking a beating from Tuco to avoid killing him. I believe one reason he did this was to keep Nacho from any fallout over Tuco's death. I can't see him doing that and then ratting him out to Gus.

Yeah, it's not like you actually saw it happen. I was just thinking how Gus told Lydia that Mike's reliable. The one dude did see Nacho throw those pills in the drink. At night. Marked the spot with the tracker gizmo.

Gus could be bluffing but Nacho is in some deep shit no matter what.

Kind of sad after all ingenious shit that Jimmy's concocted, he's really nothing more than a common thief.

Interesting to see Gale and the interaction with Gus.

I enjoyed Mike calling out the guy in the support group about the inconsistencies in his story. It really goes to show how most people do not listen carefully and take people at their word in settings such as this. It was particularly funny when the group leader had repeatedly asked him to say something and relay his feelings.

I think the most revealing development last night was Jimmy's quick discussion with his burglary accomplice and the marketing campaign Jimmy came up with for his phone job.

Guess I was wrong about Mike telling Gus shit about Nacho. He was getting called out by Gus over that and told him to basically fuck off. Mike's one tough character.

Wow, this last episode was boring...enough with the wallowing. We get it...they self-sabotage...move on already!

They need to pick it up...

I watch it for Mike only...Kim and Saul plot lines are getting old....

I'm following this show through but a couple points.

Jimmy getting rolled was just stupid. Selling phones out of his trunk at a local den of thieves, not illegal but zero attempt to be low key. After the fact, a weak cop out as Jimmy says his younger self would never have missed the potential danger he faced dealing with fellow shitbags. I don't buy it, Jimmy is Jimmy and nothing tells me his instincts have changed in any way from Slippin' Jimmy. The scene came across as a contrivance.

I like the Saul character for what it is, in some situations Bob Odenkirk does a great job with it. Other times, he's a very thin, even inept actor.

I always wondered how that meth lab in the laundry actually got there. Apparently took a few years to get that sucker built.

From the mountains in Colorado to Albuquerque in the back of a van without pissing. Hardcore.

While I agree with most of what you've said, I give them a little slack on Jimmy's screw up selling the phones on the street. He was clearly bored at the cell phone store. After that business man (Trucker?) came in and gobbled up the phones after Jimmy's pitch, he saw a market opportunity and just couldn't resist. The scene went to portray what his mind set is becoming. That being; strictly straight and narrow doesn't work for him and when he sees an opportunity to deal a little dirty and pocket some money... well that's his true style. This carried over to BB as Saul, where virtually all of his dealings were a bit shady.



Men fight for liberty and win it with hard knocks. Their children, brought up easy, let it slip away again, poor fools. And their grandchildren are once more slaves.

The whole Huell thing seems way over the top. Kim's social justice obsession is stupid, not gaining my interest and support. OK, I guess this will all move the show along but it's not ringing true and seems pretty forced.

And yea, Kai was a target from his first appearance, disappearing the whole lot may be a cost of doing business. But, in keeping with my above comments, a bunch of piggish Germans who can't hold their beer? Really?

Could not follow why she was initially mad at Jimmy for (presumably) his behavior and dragging her into the prosecutorial fiasco, then suddenly embraced it (the grocery store phone call scene of the previous episode...though, note, this was before she displayed her anger through curt/silent treatment of him in this episode, which is odd), then got all hot-and-bothered w/ him when her ploy worked, and then wants to "do it again." Was her anger part of her ploy against the Asst. DA? Wouldn't seem likely, given the DA was nowhere around to see it, even if it served a purpose. Couldn't follow her all-over-the-board emotions/action of this episode...maybe I missed something.

Ol' Kim is a smart cookie, a good lawyer but I think she's crazier than a shithouse rat.
