I finally watched the season premier last night. I loved the tracking device sequence. That was brilliant

My feeling here is that they have completely dropped the Sandpiper storyline so that they can go full-on Mike Montage Mode. These scenes are so well done because the editing and pace is slow and annoying but the payoff is soooo goooood.

ending to episode five had one of the best courtroom scenes that I've ever seen.

I'm beginning to like this show so much that I don't want Jimmy to become Saul.

Kim is fucked after this episode,As is Chuck. I bet Jimmy escapes due to his compelling argument that he would have done anything, including lying, to make Chuck feel better.

Why is Kim fucked? I guess because future clients wouldn't want to be associated with her due to Jimmy's actions? I could see Jimmy turning into Saul after hating himself so much for ruining her life.

It didnt look like she knew what Jimmy was caught saying, that he was basically word for word saying that he "did it for her". I can see the board giving both of them a suspension. Or at least an investigation into the matter resulting in her loosing her client.

This was well hinted at with her awkward smile with them.

I don't know how technically accurate this show is in portraying the legality of a home recording, but having said that, I can understand why they are basically useless in a courtroom without having a corroborating third party.

Can we not have a lawyer chime in on this?

just binge watched all of them and caught up

there was a lawyer on reddit who responded, basically the rules they cite are real but don't apply in this situation. also the tape wouldn't have been allowed even if they did apply.

I like this much better than BB. It is much more realistic and there is less distracting girlfriend drama.

I can't remember the last time I was so invested in every episode of a TV show. IT Probably goes back to when 24 was good when I was a soph at State.

Someone jog my memory -- when Gus poisoned all those cartel guys in Breaking Bad, is that what messed up Hector so much that he was in a wheelchair and couldn't talk? It seems like all this stuff is leading up to Mike/Nacho/Gus taking him out somehow, but I can't remember if BB already showed it.

I thought that a stroke was just assumed or tossed around as a joke. Either way, we don't know what triggered his current state, and honestly I always thought that it had something to do with Gus.

A stroke may just be a case of Gus paying off/threatening the doctor who diagnosed him.

I thought the whole thing with Nacho hiding the pill that fell on the floor was a foreshadow to him (Hector) not having as many pills as he thought in a future scene, or something, causing him to need to wheelchair

^^ From that same scene, I took it as Nacho planning on potentially spiking one of the pills so that Hector has a reaction.

That would be probably the first movie trope that they have used so far.

the way that the dirty vet reacted to Jimmy and his fish is exactly how am I when I go into somebody's house and see that they killed their plants due to either lack of light or drowning them in water.

^I legit thought Jimmy was seriously upset at first but halfway through I figured out what he was doing. Bob Odenkirk is incredible.

After everything that Jimmy sacrificed and went through for Kim to keep her big client, it is beyond hypocritical that she can't cut him some slack and spot him for a year. It is just a year suspension, and that is by no means a long time to live on a tight budget. But yet, she just sits around and observes as if she was never even involved in the first place.

There are endless possibilities available that she could pursue to help him out. She could even hire him as an assistant during this process, and with as much talent as Jimmy has, she would probably be getting one of the best assistants in town.

Although I love this series so far, it is a bit disappointing that they are going down a similar path with Kim that they did with Skylar in Breaking Bad.

He had no problems with her as his co-counsel. Surely he would give in if she put it on the table.

That was after it was clear that she wasn't helping. Her entire stance was to just dissolve everything that they tried to build together, and so he is forced to put on a show that he can hold his own because if he doesn't then she wants out.

I can't imagine the pain of going through life from your perspective

She put her professional reputation on the line compromised her morals and ethics to defend him and now she has to financially support him too? I mean its not like he is going hungry, he just can't keep the office he wants.

And hire him as an assistant? She just finished saying she doesn't need one. Besides is paperwork Jimmy's strong suit?

it has nothing to do about my perspective, it has to do with the facts from this reality as we know them.

The fact is that she has her big client because of what he did for her, and he lost his license for a year because of events resulting from that.

Her saying "well, time to close the shop, good luck" is fairly hypocritical. Like I said, there are ton of options here.

I also don't get why they are making such a big deal about the Magna Carta comment in court. Chuck is a lawyer, you know that they probably jerk off to that shit at parties.
