Better Call Saul – S2E7 – Inflatable
John and Chris are back for a second year of obsessive chat centered on the story, the characters, the craft, and the philosophical ins and outs of AMC’s Better Call Saul.
Inflatable is an episode of big changes for Jimmy and Kim, as they both draft letters of resignation to their respective firms. Jimmy ends up changing his plan when trusty Omar alerts him to a clause in his contract requiring him to repay his signing bonus if he works for the firm less than a year. From that point, the goal is to get fired by the partners at Davis & Main, which leads Jimmy to wear some very loud, very Saul-like suits; contrive a juicer mishap; fail to flush in the company bathroom; and take up bagpiping. Clifford snaps and cuts Jimmy loose, knowing full well that this is what Jimmy himself has pushed him to do.
Kim, on the other hand, is all but convinced when it comes to leaping from Hamlin Hamlin & McGill to Schweikart & Cokely. After turning down an unexpected offer from Jimmy to buy out her college debt and start the law practice of Wexler McGill, she aces the interview at S&C, only to slip up and call Schweikart “Howard” on the way out. This flub weighs on her as she ponders the business card that Jimmy mocked up to assist in his joint firm pitch.
While all of this is going on, Mike continues to try and do what’s best for Stacey and Kaylee, including, in this case, inspecting a home with which his usually harried daughter-in-law is clearly in love. Stacey gets the house. And Mike has to figure out how to get the money.
