Mike Ehrmantraut came to Albuquerque to see his daughter-in-law Stacey and his granddaughter Kaylee. He also had good reason to leave Philadelphia. He was a policeman there as was his son Matt who died in the line of duty. Matt, his partner and his sergeant raided a drug den and Matt didn't come out alive. Now, some of Mike's former colleagues are in town to ask him questions. Mike insists on having a lawyer, even though is only supposed to be a friendly chat. Jimmy shows up, though Mike has a special request of him. In addition to Matt's death, his partner and sergeant were killed in a parking lot 3 months later, the night before Mike left Philadelphia. It's obvious they think Mike had something to do with that. Flashbacks show what happened that night. Written by garykmcd

Mike, Mike, Mike
15 May 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Mike Ehemantraut returns (actually he goes back in time) to his earliest appearance. In "Breaking Bad," he was already the cool foundation of Gus's drug empire. Here we meet the Philadelphia cop whose son was gunned down by his own kind. Mike is damaged by this and has done something (but we don't know what it is). He visits the widowed daughter-in-law who makes him tell the story. Saul has suddenly been embedded in the criminal world we saw in "Breaking Bad." Mike's character is so sound and so taciturn that he is hard to like, but we can't take our eyes off him. I thought after the last episode this was that actor playing a different character. I apologize for my stupidity.
