[Editor’s note: The following contains spoilers for “Better Call Saul” Season 3, Episode 7, “Expenses.”]

Last Week’S Review: Watch Out, World, Because Saul Goodman is Coming

Case Summary

After celebrating what felt like a victory last week, it’s now time for Jimmy to accept the consequences for his year-long suspension, which are far tougher than he anticipated. Trying to balance his required community service hours with his fledgling business as a producer and director of local commercials isn’t working out all that well — he’s running himself ragged and going broke in the process.

Exclusive: The Impact and Legacy of ‘Law & Order: Svu’ 400 Episodes Later

Don Cragen (Dann Florek) -- tasked with bringing justice for sexually based crimes.

Their stories quickly became beloved by audiences as the series not only became a ratings hit for NBC, but also earned critical acclaim -- including a historic run of Emmy nominations and wins for its guest stars -- and adoration among the many actors who passed through on their way to stardom.
