I think he gave back the money and is returning the Kettelmans to HHM in an attempt to save Kim's career. She's borderline being fired for losing them as clients.

I strongly disagree with this. I mean, Walter obviously wasn't going to die when you knew they had signed up for more seasons early on in BB. Did that ruin any of the suspense involving his scenes?

There's also plenty of new characters that we can get attached to. The fact that Kim, who is a very likeable character, isn't in BB actually already has me kind of worried about how she's going to end up, for example.

I think that's a stretch. You don't see much of Saul in BrBa outside of his relationship to the main characters. Nothing at all of his social life. Kim could still have been around, gotten married and/or moved away from NM, or whatever. I don't think we can judge anything by the fact that we didn't meet her there.

Yeah absolutely. My point was, since this is a new character the audience cares about, there is still a lot of room to create suspense. Just because we know Saul and Mike will always make it through doesn't mean that the show will inherently be less suspenseful than BB, which is what the poster I replied to seemed to be suggesting.

He's also one of the thugs helping set up the magnets in BB S5.

Who is Skylar 2.0?

I loved this episode. Betsy Kettleman is amazingly hot.

I thought the first wanted poster they showed was the nazi leader from the last season of BB...but I'm not sure.

I never had a problem with Skylar, and she was certainly more of a victim than anything, but what the hell is wrong with Kim? She seems pretty great so far.

She has Saul pussywhipped and he isn't even getting the pussy. That is painful tv.

I am guessing she will screw him over somehow and that'll be his breaking bad.

Let's be honest. Kim also exists because u need a woman in the show to interest the female audience. The execs probably demanded she be written in - love interest, etc

Pussywhipped? Does he even feel that way about her? I guess people are assuming that because she's hot, but it's possible to have hot friends who you don't want to bang. Everything about their relationship has been platonic so far hasn't it? Has Jimmy even asked her on a date?

I can only speak for myself and not all women, but Mike is what interests me the most about this show. He was one of my favorite characters in BB.

When he called her in the middle of the night in the beginning, she said " no jimmy I won't talk dirty to you " and sounded pretty serious.
