Jimmy is looking to set himself up in swank new offices and hopes that Kim Wexler will join him. She appreciates the offer but is happy where she is. She is currently dealing with the Kettlemans - Craig was the county treasurer who embezzled $1.6 million - and Kim has negotiated a deal with the DA's office: plead guilty, return the money and get an 18 month sentence. Betsy won't hear of it, Kim is fired and they are soon on Jimmy's doorstep looking to hire him. When he declines, they blackmail him into taking their case. Seeing no way out, Jimmy turns to Mike Ehrmantraut for help in doing the right thing.
Did You Know?
Jimmy aka Saul (Bob Odenkirk
) would one day be on one of those Wanted posters as the camera scanned downward to his face when sitting with Mike (Jonathan Banks
) - a mirrored effect in Breaking Bad
(2008) when Hank (Dean Norris
) passed the donation tub around for Walt (Bryan Cranston
), his picture under the Wanted sign in the DEA office, portending his fate. See more
Saul's back in his beauty-parlor office, researching for a legal hook to get the Kettlemans off. He reaches for (West's) New Mexico Digest (Criminal Law) and starts reading on a page in the "embezzlement' section -- all clearly shown onscreen. The book he's clearly seen to be actually opening up, however, is Vol. 132 of the New Mexico Reports (a compilation of court decisions) -- an entirely different beast. See more
Once again I do *all* the talking. That's the only way this works.
