Storyline

Saul represents Mike, who changes his story about the ownership of the gun to hold up his end of the bargain with Salamanca. Kim is thinking about accepting the new job offer while Jimmy intends to resign from Davis & Main until he finds out he'd have to pay back the signing bonus he received. Therefore he works hard to get himself fired. He plans to start up a law firm and hence he makes Kim an offer i.e. to become his law partner. But they both know Jimmy tends to bend the rules so in the end Kim declines the offer. Out of a job, Jimmy wants to reinvent himself. After her job interview, Kim reflects about her possible partnership with Jimmy. She changes her mind and accepts Jimmy's offer but under her own terms. Written by Andreea D

Quotes

Kim Wexler: If we're gonna be law partners, I need to know one thing. What kind of lawyer are you gonna be? I don't mean what kind of law are you going to practice. I mean... are you gonna play it straight or are you gonna... be colorful?

Better Call Saul

Gilligan and Gould were no mistake, no fluke, no exception, and this is a fine example for it. The creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, are pulling off something I have never seen happen and work, certainly not to this scale. One of the rare and some might even argue only spin off that triumphs, this series runs on merit, not resuming the clock but starting where it should, where all should, from the very beginning. Intertextuality, something that every spin off has dipped its toe in, is not even touched in here. And that's a fair conclusion considering whenever it is used, it was never commercial or a campaigning strategy but a part of narrative.

Among many things that this series will zap you with, if you are coming from Breaking Bad, the major one, is the body count. To a show that was built on gradually showcasing the skills, the finesse, the threat and the terror, step by step, the creators have wiped out the entire history- or future to be precise- from the memory. Yes, the structure is similar but that's not a signature mark that they are clinging on but an ingenious way of storytelling.

Also, what's to be noted and learned, equally, is the way they glorify the character's habit or behavior as a sign of communication that latter turns out to be the headline of the news. In the previous show this was done, since the cinematic aspect of the plot called for it, but this drama is treated with those same morales, thought provoking tantalizing elements that grows on you even after you leave the screen. Plus, they aren't obsessed on connecting the dots, the makers are well satisfied, busy and competent with their own world, where Odenkirk hails charge on others after being properly challenged by each supporting cast who would yell out any advice other than suggesting that you Better Call Saul.

Inflatable

A proposal and the reason for the proposal. And it is excruciatingly beautiful to watch someone do more for others than they do for themselves. If it is Hanks helping or Odenkirk compromising or Seahorn realizing, floating in one sinking boat they are barely hanging on their hopes and of course potential.
