This makes some sense. If he specifically mentions managing a Cinnabon in Omaha during Breaking Bad, what are the chances that is the exact scenario that plays out?

It's possible he discussed that scenario with the cleaner prior to that scene.

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.
I thought Kim was off base when she blew up at Howard, who seemed sincere and devastated when he told Kim and Jimmy what happened. If Howard has done anything insensitive, it does seem like an honest mistake by a guy who feels bad and is trying to do the right thing.

Kim seemed appalled by Jimmy's callous reaction to Howard, like she didn't know who Jimmy was, as someone else mentioned in this thread.

This does remind me of that scene with Chuck, in that Kim seems to know Jimmy is in the wrong in both instances, but she fiercely defends him anyway. I think she is just in love with him and feels bad for him, mostly because of the way his brother treated him.

Can’t remember the last time I smiled this hard when someone showed up. This show is so elite.

That is Ira, the owner of VAMANOS PESTS. Walt used Ira's company's clients' houses to cook in.

I'll try again. It's not standard to test for the medicine that Hector was acting like he was taking. And even if it were, it is metabolized so quickly that it would be undetectable anyway.

I can think of maybe a couple of drugs the levels of which might be checked in a situation like Hector's, but none of those things are things that he would take acutely when he is having an episode.

Now it's entirely possible that the BCS writers can just depart from reality and do exactly what you suggested above. If and when they do that, I'll go ahead and suspend my disbelief, because it's kind of nitty to get hung up on it. But until they explicitly state it, I'll think the default is to stick with reality.

No, gun dealer is recognizable character actor from Deadwood and Justified.

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

Gotta admit, really confused by the last few scenes. What was Kim worried about at the office? Why did she go to the courthouse? What was up with the letter?

Probably worried that she's gonna have to move all around the country and she's going to the courthouse to file for divorce/custody of her and Jimmy's kid.

My take is that she is fearful of something in her past coming up if
she is part of the expansion, especially if the federal govt becomes involved.

She had a look when the dude mentioned the Nebraska office where she is from
and we dont have a lot otherwise on her backstory.

The most interesting interesting/subtle thing to me in the model room is
a shot where Kim is looking into a model and it is framed as if she were
behind bars.

Watch the first in a series of training videos starring Mike (Jonathan Banks) as he instructs employees of Madrigal Electromotive in how to keep their facilities secure.

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

I was really hoping Kubey (Bill Burr) was gonna do the robbery. Imagine him lighting into Jimmy when he finally escaped that office.

Nice call on the Vamanos guy, and the "behind bars" shot.

Loved the closing shot of half of Jimmy's face.

My guess on Kim's courthouse visit: she needs to hire some help with this huge job, and knows a few lawyers who don't work at HHM, and knows where to find them.

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

Two great benefits to watching on the AMC app:

1. Easter Eggs! Short videos highlighting little details like the Copier Guy ordering from the same pizza place as Walt's roof-pizza (his last words before Sqqylah slams the door on him were a weak "I've got dipping sticks?"), and Badger's "That's their gimmick, man, they don't slice their pizzas, and they pass the savings onto you!"

This week, Copier Guy ordered dipping sticks, and requested his pizza be sliced.

2. The chick in the "Google, take a selfie!" ad, which runs over and over and over. She is steamy AF.

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

I was also expecting either Bill Burr or Huell to steal the hummel. I couldn't recognize the guy who actually did it.

I really like Nacho both as a character and actor. It almost seems inevitable that he will die since he's not in BB, but maybe he manages to leave the criminal environment and settle down.
