  1. S04.E07: Something Stupid

    Yes, well said, and I think along with knowing Chuck was right, he had the last encounter with his brother ending with him saying he didn't matter all that much. But, Chuck wasn't finished yet -- Jimmy finds out in the letter that at one point Chuck had some level of admiration for Jimmy that he could never say out loud. What kind of feelings does that stir up that Jimmy now is unwilling to face? He's internalized all of that input from Chuck. Really sad.

    Yes, he would have normally schmoozed his way out of a mess and he tried to backtrack when it was too late, but he is combative owing to his diminishing status. Kim is moving in a different direction, his hair is falling out, he needs a bodyguard. His mouthiness to the officer didn't actually hurt him, though, it's Huell who is jammed up now and Jimmy is thinking up asinine ways to help him. Downward spiral.

    You're right, we don't, I assumed it because Mike is Fring's and nominally, Madrigal's, security consultant, and he picked up the first guy at the airport parking. Could have been Gus, Lydia, another person.

    Mike found him and he seems to have a knack for finding the shady types in Albuquerque, but apparently his talent reaches internationally to people who are willing to take long rides with hoods over their heads.

    He wouldn't have to do all that. He told Mike he needed utility schematics and Mike said he'd get them. Even if identifiers were redacted, that would probably pretty much narrow down the location. What I wonder about is I thought I saw a worker putting something in or taking something out of machinery when the digging crew was marching in. Did I see that? What's up with having other people seeing the men come in?
  6. S04.E07: Something Stupid

    Agreed, this is very improbable to me. We were shown that several months have now gone by, she can't have been there that whole time, suspending her practice for one patient, yet Gus made it sound that way when he said it's time to delegate. If she had been flying in and out periodically she would have already been delegating.
  7. S04.E07: Something Stupid

    You could be right. This episode, from the opening growing-apart montage to his performance at the office party to her telling him by her actions to basically buzz off (in her office when she started working on Huell's problem), I think the force that blows them apart will likely be Jimmy. She's loyal to him but I hope not blindly loyal. I would like to see her taking a verbal stand with him instead of being so non-confrontational. Not that he would listen and alter his behavior, but she's very direct with others and I wish she would carry that through with Jimmy. She might have been using some hyperbole. However, the fact that Jimmy had planted a battery on his respected brother at a bar hearing might have gotten around and some might see that as unsavory. I would have if I had been on that bar panel, and it might have figured into the one year suspension. Now he's selling burner phones and hanging with people with records, it's not a good look.

    No, he's not stealing, he's getting them direct from the supplier, and used the $5,000 left to him in Chuck's will to get the initial shipment. He's selling on his own and not scamming anyone. If we're to believe what he told the cop, he's got a license to sell and is collecting sales tax. I just don't think he could have been holding himself out as a lawyer and not been busted for practicing law without a license. He was well known in Albuquerque as Chuck's brother, prosecutors and judges know him, etc. Ha, the bloom is off the rose.
  9. S04.E07: Something Stupid

    I'd be concerned about both the law and the ethics because after all it is the sharing of information that is leading to the ceasing of therapy. The only way I think she is okay is if she takes Gus' comments to mean that he is going to continue seeing that he gets therapy consistent with what he has been getting. He said something like it's time to delegate so you can get back to your work and she could think that means that of course he is not going to let him languish. She needs to question that though, and satisfy herself that Hector is set up for ongoing therapy.
  10. S04.E07: Something Stupid

    Good question. Now that there's been a time jump, have the cousins been back to visit? Nacho? Another question is relating to Jimmy's prosecution deferral. I really couldn't tell from that opening sequence with the split screen because I was jumping back and forth, but did his case get closed out? I thought maybe yes. If not (and there was a reference to being one month from reinstatement) he is skating on thin ice with his association with a known criminal, and having that on record as having been the witness that the prosecutor referred to as the scumbag disbarred lawyer.
  11. S04.E07: Something Stupid

    I think although he nearly melted down when Kim initially told him about her partnership at Schweikert, he still had his dream that they could be Wexler and McGill. Not necessarily rooted in reality; he was living in denial until he was right in the middle of her milieu. Then he knew his dream could literally never measure up.
  12. S04.E07: Something Stupid

    I just saw this same type of scene in another show, it must be the trend in showing a comfort level or something. Not so appealing, what's next, one of them on the throne while the other brushes their teeth?
  13. S04.E07: Something Stupid

    I'm not debating, you brought the media narrative up and I did reply that if you don't accept the stats (because we can all do varied mental gymnastics around different reports) that is still how it looks Kim is headed with her defense, given what she has said so far. I could be wrong about that, though. Because the school supplies have me stumped. The most memorable part of what was for me, a somewhat lackluster episode (photography aside) is Jimmy telling Huell "I'm the magic man." That's Jimmy/Saul one month away from being reinstated to practice law, immediately jumping out of bounds into probable criminal, self-destruct territory. Seeing Kim's beautiful office and symbols of her accomplishment, along with Huell's dissing the perfectly nice office he hoped to make into Wexler & McGill, has really got him reeling. His feelings are understandable, but the actions he takes in response are unfortunate.
  14. S04.E07: Something Stupid

    It's not just a media narrative, look at black incarceration rates. That's reality. Even if you don't accept that, it's where they're going with this story. Kim's recitation of more egregious cases with lighter sentences, and her comment about injustice, were pointing in that direction.
  15. S04.E07: Something Stupid

    I thought it was a little mustache twirling villain-like when Gus realized he wanted Hector to stay the way he was, unable to speak. Pretty unethical of the doctor if she doesn't push back on that, but she is apparently bought and paid for by Gus. She's getting her clinic. I cannot be surprised by overcharging of a black man assaulting a police officer. The prosecutor thinks it is perfectly OK notwithstanding all the cases Kim cited. It's the system, and Kim is right, it's unjust.
