    Chuck is forever a shit stain because he's motivated out of sheer jealousy.

    Still wondering whats up with Saul in the beginning. Faking it? Is he actually sick? And we likely wont find out until next season lol.

    I think this is the season where Chuck gets crucified. Saul is gonna expose all his crazy in court, get his doctor to testify he's crazy, even get Hamlin on his side (who will take 100% control from Chuck). Chuck is gonna end up committed or dead as everything falls apart. Maybe a psychotic induced coma like before.

    But if theres one thing I know, its that I know nothing about what to expect from this series and Breaking Bad lol

    I loved the opening scene with Saul as Gene, struggling with himself to rat out the shoplifter and then telling the shoplifter to get a lawyer. I think it was talked about on Talking Saul how these flash forward sequences show how much Saul has changed since the end of Breaking Bad, like not opening the emergency door when he was locked in the trash disposal area at the mall. I think the fainting was real. He probably felt sick after doing what he did.

    Overall, great season premiere. Who do you think Chuck plans on showing the recording to? My first thought was Kim to get her to break ties with Jimmy, but after the scene with Ernesto, it seems like he has bigger plans.

    I think it might be bait for Jimmy to commit a bigger crime to cover it up

    It was an interesting first episode. The first segment showed him scared witless by the coming run-in with law enforcement, so he played it low key. However, he felt so bad for the kid, who probably reminded Saul of his younger self that his limbic system took over and the line, "Get a lawyer!" slipped out of him. His fainting spell was either a sign of a medical issue or a result of the worry of repercussions for doing so.

    Mike's segment was also interesting in that he figured out how he was tracked. It is my guess that Gus Freeman is behind it. Scaramanga and his boss are his arch rivals and he has a man following them.

    I believe Chuck is going to litigate since he has so many grudges against Jimmy and the fallout will be bad enough to cause Jimmy's disbarment. However, Chuck is going to use Kim's career as a bargaining chip to make it happen. Jimmy will then start a new life with a different name.

    I think he's going to use the tape to make mesa Verde leave Kim. And as for how this is going to end for his brother, he'll likely end up dead and the reason why Jimmy had to become Saul. We'll see that vanishing dude again most likely to explain how they met.

    You guys realize this is a very short time before Breaking Bad now, right? And that Saul is still living in the same area, using his same face in ads, etc. Theres no way he gets disbarred, relocates, gets a new identity, etc.

    Either his name change is voluntary, or its part of some settlement with Hamlin, Hamiln, McGill to change it in exchange for some payout methinks

    Well, it's set 6 years before BB started, and we've gone through about a year ("real" time) of Saul as Jimmy. Who knows what they could sneak in.

    I don't know about you guys but I found this episode boring as hell. There's way too much filler in this show, these episodes should be around ~30 minutes long instead of the 50+ minutes we get. I sure as fuck didn't need to see Mike fuck with his car for over half an episode to find out if it was bugged or not. I fell asleep towards the end of the episode too.

    Mike is an always will be my favorite character in the BB universe. He's a pure genius and super industrious. I love that tiny smirk he had when the recon dude picked up the tracker.

    I guess it's going to be a longer while before we see Gustavo though. Hopefully next ep, but Gus has many layers to his operation so Mikegyver might need to interrogate or tail an enforcer to get to the source.

    I don't get people who talk about slow episodes. The first 2 seasons of BCS were slow just like a lot of BB was. I'm not sure what you are expecting. It's like complaining that Mad Men is slow.

    I think a lot of people are just antsy for Jimmy to become Saul and after two full seasons they're patience has run thin. I enjoy the pacing right now and I like the slow burn

    Edit: I also like that Kim did the same dollar trick to Jimmy that he used on Walt and Jesse on his first appearance in Breaking Bad
  • Pimp WillyPimp Willy "I guarantee we got a rat in the house!" Joined: Posts: 10,733 ✭✭✭✭✭ OG
    I just feel like the pacing is slower than I'd like to see. The Jimmy in Pollos Hermanos scene was way too drawn out. Mike watching the guy over and over was drawn out; we get it, hes doing dead drops. Beautiful shots, but... not advancing the story. I dunno. It was extra noticeable this week.

    Understandable. I'm just saying don't expect for Saul Goodman to be a thing until the end, more than likely.

    One thing that went through my head was, "he just threw the fry basket away!" When he threw the tray of trash away. Then was pleased when Gus took it out of the trash when retrieving his watch.

    The director is purposefully making those scenes slow to show you Mike's frustration over being found out. Is that not clear to you guys?

    Again, this has been going on since BB and the first 2 seasons of BCS so people being surprised by this in the 10th season of this storyline is just a weird thing to complain about.

    I always got the impression there was more to victor and gale than just him being upset... there were some undertones there, like possibly the two were down low lovers or something. I dont know how else Victor was dumb enough to get himself seen at the scene of the murder, he was too professional for that. Parallels Gus in a way, except Gus kept his calm and enacted a much longer revenge plot. But yeah, knowing Victor was a very longtime henchman makes his murder way more impactful, I hadn't even considered that yet

    Still betting that Gus is gay. I hope they never actually reveal it. Much better just to assume his character than to have everything spelled out.

    I didn't see that coke sprinkling coming. It was pretty damn cute.

    Chuck being predictable Chuck, or we can chalk it up to consistency. He's still just aiming to take Jimmy's law license away. Saw this coming soon after he didn't immediately bring that tape to the police. It's good either way since Jimmy's storyline is losing interest for me and Mike's is becoming much more appealing.

    I feel like if or when (probably when, since Saul is still legally a lawyer in Breaking Bad) Jimmy wins his case, that's it for Chuck; he's probably just going to completely lose his shit and that'll be the end of him. I don't think he'll die per say, but he'll probably have a breakdown and end up in a loony bin. I'm half expecting the case to cause Kim way too much stress and cause them to split as partners, as she has way too much on her plate already.

    Saul will likely end up winning, but by being Dirty, causing his brother to lose it on the stand. He will agree to commit his brother, sell his brothers shares to Hamlin, and in exchange agree not to use the McGill name anymore in law.

    But then again, if theres one thing Breaking Bad is good at, its making sure your guesses are always wrong lol

    Doubt that. Pollos Hermanos was still around. The bullet holes in the stop sign leads me to believe there's a gun fight there and that Gus won.

    Mike's a frickin' genius, but I wonder how long he can do this without getting the Salamancas to start really investigating these strange occurrences.

    I can't wait to see how Saul resolves this, although we already know there will be dire consequences that will affect those around him.

    If we were talking about the dude that walt lit his car on fire showing up in the episode where saul and kim scammed him into the expensive tequila, then that'd be one thing. But Francesca was a recurring character for multiple seasons, I'd expect her to be more recognizable
