The conversations surrounding the latest season of Better Call Saul seem focused on Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould’s decision to present the season’s most climactic moment, the hearing between brothers Jimmy and Chuck, in episode five. By getting to the point early with the battle between the McGills, the latter half of the season has been searching for a plotline to take center stage. Jimmy adjusting to life away from being a lawyer hasn’t been meaningless, but it did seem like we were waiting for something new to suck Jimmy into its orbit. This week, it appears like the writers have found that next thing, and they’ve found it by going back to Better Call Saul’s beginnings.
