The episode begins some time prior to the series. A younger Chuck meets Jimmy in Cook County Jail, where Jimmy has been imprisoned for unspecified offenses which risk having him labeled as a sex offender. Chuck warns Jimmy that his life will be ruined if the charges go through, and Jimmy pleads with Chuck to help get the charges against him dismissed. Chuck agrees to represent Jimmy under the condition that he cleans up his act. In the present, Jimmy is anxious about Nacho's plot to extort the Kettlemans. He calls Kim Wexler, an acquaintance of his who works at Chuck's former law firm, which is providing legal counsel to the Kettlemans. Jimmy indirectly warns Kim about the potential danger to the Kettlemans, but then breaks off the call, insisting that he "is no hero." Later that night, Jimmy leaves an anonymous tip to the Kettlemans warning them that they are in danger. Concerned, the Kettlemans look outside their house and see somebody in a parked van watching them. The next morning... Written by Jimmy

Did You Know?


It is heavily possible that the graffiti mark left in front of Jimmy (Bob Odenkirk) as he uses Nacho (Michael Mando)'s contact number on the phone booth might be from Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul). This is not only because it has the word "JP" on it, but during the teaser in the Breaking Bad (2008) episode Breaking Bad: Problem Dog (2011), the exact same mark of graffiti is shown behind Jesse.

Another great episode!
17 February 2015 | by PulpPhictionSee all my reviews

The first three episodes of this series have not only met my at first extremely high expectations, but also absolutely exceeded them. I already find myself every Monday after watching an episode, immediately anticipating next week, and what surprises will no doubt be in store for the rest of the series.

Almost everything about 'Nacho' is spot on. Cinematography? Check. The amount of subtly stunning shots in this show just makes it great to look at. Music? Check. The original score as well as the carefully picked songs just add yet another great quality to the show. Acting? Of course, check. We've already established many great characters alongside the main protagonist Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk), who is of course on point as always.

Overall, to wrap it up, this show just keeps getting better, doesn't it? How it keeps me on the edge of my seat throughout all the episodes, and keeps me in strong anticipation for the next episode during the 6 day interval is beyond me. Great job.
