The episode begins some time prior to the series. A younger Chuck meets Jimmy in Cook County Jail, where Jimmy has been imprisoned for unspecified offenses which risk having him labeled as a sex offender. Chuck warns Jimmy that his life will be ruined if the charges go through, and Jimmy pleads with Chuck to help get the charges against him dismissed. Chuck agrees to represent Jimmy under the condition that he cleans up his act. In the present, Jimmy is anxious about Nacho's plot to extort the Kettlemans. He calls Kim Wexler, an acquaintance of his who works at Chuck's former law firm, which is providing legal counsel to the Kettlemans. Jimmy indirectly warns Kim about the potential danger to the Kettlemans, but then breaks off the call, insisting that he "is no hero." Later that night, Jimmy leaves an anonymous tip to the Kettlemans warning them that they are in danger. Concerned, the Kettlemans look outside their house and see somebody in a parked van watching them. The next morning... Written by Jimmy

17 February 2015 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

I think there's few (screenplay)-writers who can pull off so much dialogue, whilst still being highly entertaining; Tarantino, Cohen-Brothers, Kubrick, Woody Allen, and more. - and then there is Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould.

I think the writing of Better Call Saul is absolutely superb. Many of the scenes are so flawlessly constructed that you want them to simply continue. It's so gripping! (I felt the same way with Breaking Bad and True Detective)

Kudos to the team for making this series. I love every bit of it! Give the show a chance and I think you'll love it!

My vote for this episode: 9.5/10.
