As the season draws to a close, several plot lines are near their boiling point. But with the deliberate, slow burn pacing of Better Call Saul, “Slip” is less of an explosive episode than one suffused with a creeping sense that our characters are all taking crucial steps.
Jimmy is merging his bitter vindictive side with his ability to provide legal assistance to those who might otherwise be crushed by the system. Mike has struck a handshake deal with Gus Fring to launder his ill-gotten money so that Stacy and Kaylee can benefit from it. Chuck appears to be making an honest run at recovery but is about to receive bad news about this malpractice insurance.
