Better Call Saul – S2E10 – Klick
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.
The finale of season two leaves a couple of major questions looming, but finds a certain amount of resolution in terms of character development. As the episode ends, we are more sure than ever that Jimmy has a decent streak that runs deep within him, and we are more sure than ever that Chuck, whatever his attributes, is ultimately a petty man driven by his bitter feelings towards his brother.
Mike, whose plot-line never did intersect with Jimmy’s, faces a mystery regarding who botched his attempt on Hector Salamanca’s life. The cryptic note he found on his car, both a plea and a warning, merely says ‘Don’t.’ Whoever left it clearly doesn’t want Mike to succeed in his mission, but why? For once we see the future fixer truly flummoxed.
We also get a prime example of HH&M mailroom solidarity, as Ernesto joins Kim as another well-meaning friend of Jimmy’s willing to lie to Chuck on their weaselly pal’s behalf. This time the motivator is the fact that, while Jimmy has risked his neck to help Chuck after his fall in the copy shop, Chuck won’t let up, and continues to dig around for information about Jimmy’s date-switching scam. Ernesto stands up for Jimmy because, like Kim, he feels bad for him.
But Ernie and Kim’s cover stories notwithstanding, Chuck finally gets the truth, in the form of an audiotaped confession he sneakily procures from Jimmy.
What’s Chuck’s plan? Who left the note for Mike? I guess we’ll find out in spring of 2017.
