The Dead and the Comatose Hang Over Better Call Saul

center_img Seriously Howard… Jeez. #BetterCallSaul— Better Call Saul (@BetterCallSaul) August 14, 2018She unloads on Hamlin. It’s the kind of monologue that pushes even the viewer into the recesses of their couch. She eviscerates him point by point, even calling him out for trying to dump his guilt on Jimmy after the funeral. After three seasons of being the buttoned-up professional one in the relationship, she lets everything she was holding back come out. And then, for both Jimmy and Kim, it’s back to the facade once they get back home. Jimmy omits the key details about his day, and Kim hides the letter from Chuck. They have a nice evening of commercial-free classic movies and sex… and then Jimmy sneaks off to plan his heist.The scenes of domestic happiness might actually be among the episode’s most uneasy. We know Kim’s not around for Breaking Bad. We know who Jimmy turns into. Despite the apparent tranquility, their situation has never felt more volatile. They’re both lying to each other, and we know there’s no way this cute little scene can last. She’s going to find out who he really is, and he’s going to find that letter. Even though she’s trying to protect him, hiding something like that is a big deal. It’s going to be just the excuse Jimmy needs to fall into Saul for good. This season really is going to break our hearts.Get caught up on all your Saul news here.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more
