That was utterly brilliant.

Will we see Hector have a stroke before the end of the series?

Mike as the handyman was great, but why take the photos?

And, "Bingo", will Mike steal the second tape or do Kim and Jimmy have a different plan?

Gus may have to take care of that rather irritating assistant manager if he tries to be too helpful.

:( I hope not.

I'm really interested in the Jimmy vs Chuck story now. I assume that now they have got the "destruction of private property" and the cost of a tape on record they won't be able to play the (destroyed) tape at the bar hearing. Playing it will be evidence of a copy being made which must somehow work in Jimmy's favour - though I'm not sure how at the moment.

That's a really good point - we thought that Kim might have taped them saying there was a duplicate so that would show it was a set-up. As Chuck says, the rules of evidence at disciplinary hearings are far more lenient, so she might be able to produce it.

I can't wait until the next episode!

Yep, the thought of Hector having a stroke crossed my mind too, he really being provoked by Don Eladio, wasn't he?
And the photos are a bit of a puzzle too. No doubt they'll crop up later.
Not sure what Jimmy & Kim's plans are now though.

It really is turning out to be an absolute cracker of a show, innit?

Do we actually know it's a stroke that happens to Hector though. It could be gun shot damage, given the business he's in.

Another great episode. This series gets better and better. Nice to spend so long in the courtroom and great to see the return of Huell.

Also, the skullduggery of the planted battery sets a clear course to Saul's duplicitous actions as a lawyer.
Anything is admissible in his court.

That felt like an "inbetween" episode setting us up for the next one which I think will be explosive.

What do you all think about Chuck? Sooner...or later?

Later, I think. He may have another trick up his sleeve.

I do hope Kim dumps Jimmy before too long.

I worry for Kim. I loved how they filmed the power nap, making 5 minutes feel like 10 seconds. She looked shocked that the alarm was going off so soon

I think it's coming. He won't be able to keep up his end of the deal.

My prediction is that Chuck destroys Kim, then Jimmy destroys Chuck...and Saul is all that's left.

But I guess we'll see.

That was a small, memorable moment that was called back with a vengeance at the end of this week's episode. Poor Kim.

This last episode was the most Breaking Bad-like yet, you see all these long games starting to play out. Some of the eps have felt like wind-ups, this was the first part of the release. I think next week's season finale is going to be even more intense.
