Re: Better Call Saul - season 4 - Aug. 6

I should probably pay more attention but can someone remind me how Gus knows about Nacho switching the pills?

His dad is an honest man, he would never accept drug money. He wanted Nacho to take it.

Didn't he see Nacho make the switch from placebos to real pills on Hector then had Victor (I think?) tail him to where he tossed them from the bridge.

Re: Better Call Saul - season 4 - Aug. 6

Does anyone think Mike tipped Gus off that Nacho might be up to something? We know not too much gets past Gus, but when Hector had his spell and Gus was on the phone to Bolsa he kept one eye on Nacho. I feel like he knew Nacho was going to make a move on Hector. Or is that just Gus seeing all the angles?

Absolutely loved the scene of Kim going off on Howard and making her case for Jimmy; it just seemed really powerful and well acted

I think Gus just is observant and suspected something was up with Nacho, so he had him tailed and found there was for sure something fishy, then the medical report confirmed.

I think everything is correct upto bolded. I think he just suspected Nacho when nacho handed over the pills to the EMT. Then Victor tailed him and reported that he threw the pills in the river. That alone is enough.

Assuming all Nacho was doing was replacing his meds with placebo, there almost certainly nothing that anyone would be able to detect and/or put in any kind of report for Gus to find.

I mean if the writers explicitly made that part of the plot, I'd suspend my disbelief. But in the absence of that I'm going to go with reality.

Uhh how about the LACK of the original pill/medicine in the system.

Gus's spidey sense at the crime scene made him suspicious
The throwing pills in river confirmed the right for SUSPICION,
It was the report that confirmed the DEED.

Not with placebo, I think he replaced them with something that would instead make the heart attack stronger.

Re: Better Call Saul - season 4 - Aug. 6

I mean, I went in thinking Jimmy legit needed a job. Maybe he's not actually looking for a job but instead for marks and I just had it all wrong.

Kim totally threw me a curveball with her carpet bombing of Howard.

Yeah, me too. They live together, sleep together, seem to need each other...but no romance was ever visible, until Kim jumped him at the end of this ep.

They completely headfaked me for sure. I felt going into this episode that we'd see her start slowly pulling away from him after the horrified look she gave him during the post-funeral visit with Howard. Then BAM she's all up in Howard's grill defending him like he's facing the death penalty and then jamming a tongue down his throat. It almost feels like they're ****ing with me personally

She asks herself "What would Skyler do?" then she does the opposite.

Although I like Rhea Seehorn, she and Odenkirk have zero chemistry between them. Seeing them make-out was like watching a brother and sister in action.

She was pretty angry when she was caught in the confrontation at Chuck's house when he (correctly) accused Jimmy of doctoring the bank expansion paperwork.

She first laid into Chuck about being too arrogant to admit a mistake, and she essentially called him a bad brother.

Later, when she and Jimmy got back to the car she punched him (hard) twice in the arm, since she knew Chuck was telling the truth about him.

True, but I don't really see Odenkirk as any kind of romantic lead, mostly because he'll always be half of Mr. Show no matter how many other things I see him in

He didn't seem to fit as Elaine's BF in his Seinfeld episode, either. But he was funny.

Kim rant at Howard and final scene were so good.

This show is top notch.
