Re: Better Call Saul - Season 3

I wonder why they couldn't just tip someone off with an anonymous phone call.

This is true but it was still a dumb Rube Goldbergian scene.

It was pretty clear to me that Jimmy started just playing... but his natural skills and affinity for the con job had kicked in. Obv he'll have difficulty re-sealing that crack.
I got the vibe that the ******* also reminded him of how he had been treated by his brother lately

his crying seemed fake as hell at some point. maybe not at first, I would need to rewatch. but I def remember thinking the crying seemed fake.

I agree, but there was more: he was really angry, and looking to lash out/hurt someone, anyone. But only someone who deserved it, a real jerk.

He finally settled on Chuck, just as the anger spiked again. He didn't have Kim there to talk him down that time, and he unloaded with both barrels.

Re: Better Call Saul - Season 3

At the time I watched I assumed the Chuck****ing was spur-of-the-moment but I suppose it's reasonable to conclude that it was pre-planned. Chuck (at least in Jimmy's eyes) is the reason Jimmy's professional life is in utter turmoil.
