So someone explain the intro scene. Saul never got rich. Was that his house? That is a confusing timeline for me if he got rich at some point.

I think he made pretty good money from Walt and Jesse and he may have had the Sandpiper money. There was never any indication he lived like that though, so it was a little confusing. Maybe he had too much cash to launder, so he just started buying a lot of that stuff with cash.

Obvious answer is Lalo, but I’m going to say Gus’s people to get that connection going.
I agree with the Fring angle. Going back to Season 5 when Jimmy picked up the bail money in the desert, Fring's guys (Mike) were already watching him. They don't want Jimmy and Kim to fall into the hands of Lalo.

Still wondering how Kim is going to go out at the end of this? Death, Jail, or just moving away?

I think someone else mentioned they thought Jimmy saw her in Omaha and that was my thought as well. I think somehow she gets out or leaves.

The house the Lalo stopped at last night, did anyone pick up on some of the conversation he had with the wife and how that relates back to one of the body's found at his house?

It was interesting to see all of the prescription bottles with Saul Goodman on them. The camera panned by too fast to see what sort of drugs they were. No mistaking the big box of Viagra however. It was interesting to see all of his clothes being hauled out, but at one point, it looked as if there was a rack of women's clothes being pushed out the door. And of course the pink thong on the tub.

Yes, they mentioned that Lalo paid for some dental work for the husband. The implication is that Lalo's dentist put that guy's x-rays in Lalo's file so Lalo could use him to fake his death. They find a burned body roughly Lalo's size with teeth that match what is in Lalo's record.

I really enjoyed the scenes with the Kettleman couple. I could almost see a spinoff with them featured.
  • Nice touch having a blue pinto parked in front of their tax business.
  • The Craig Kettleman character is hilarious.
  • Now I see where Saul's blow up lady liberty came from.
  • Betsy Kettleman's blouse seems a little tight.
  • Kim's stick sure worked better than Saul's carrot.

I didn't see anything wrong with that myself.

the longer Kim stays with Jimmy the more I think she was behind the scenes in Breaking Bad
This is interesting, I heard on a podcast them talking about how never saw Saul’s home life in BB so for all we know he was going home to Kim every night. On a side note you knew the end of Nacho was coming but still liked to hold out hope. He was a great character.

Yea he was, but he went out well. However I’d fear for his dads safety after dissing the Salamancas like he did

How much different would Breaking Bad have been if Nacho took out Don Eladio when he had the chance...

And I totally agree that Kim is the invisible hand guiding Jimmy/Saul all the way through.
